Photo: Istock By Jenny Muller In my quest to strike a middle ground between eating out and eating sprouts, I’ve done GOOP’s liquid harvest (yay!) and I’ve gone gluten free (boo!). GOOP’s veggie-heavy eating made me a ball of energy who came thisclose to grabbing people on the L train and telling them, “TRY THIS! IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!”
Generally, fall is a time to put on that snuggling weight. You know what I mean, right? Those extra few pounds around the middle that we all say are to "keep us warmer," but are actually because we're not as active, we eat more, and we can easily hide behind those loosely-fitting fall clothes and big comfy sweaters. But this time, instead of getting cozy as the temperatures get cooler, I'm trying to find a six-pack under all these layers somewhere leading up to my Las Vegas vacation at the end of the month. When you think about it, fall is actually the perfect time to get out and get active. Cooler temperatures mean less of that hot-sticky-over-sweating feeling.
BEHIND every great bum is a great workout and a few cheeky shortcuts. Tess Daly, 42, and Abbey Clancy, 25, both have derrieres to die for and are clients of personal trainer Doug Robertson. Doug has created a ten-week Pilates course that focuses purely on getting a pert bum. But, of course, no one – Tess Daly included – could get a toned tush if they did not eat well into the bargain. Part of Tess’s great shape is put down to what she describes as her “naturally fast metabolism”, which means she probably burns calories slightly more quickly and easily than the rest of us. She also believes that a balanced diet is the best way to eat.
