My doctor told me the other day that if I want to try and get rid of the lumpy bit around my middle I need to cut down on carbohydrates. Apparently they are the culprit much more than fats.
She advised cutting down on anything made with grains. Bread, biscuits, cereals etc. That means , less toast, crumpets and less cereals. She suggested trying eggs and tomatoes for breakfast. . Maybe a slice of quiche made without the pastry. Lots of fruit and vegetables too, which I do love.
It is not something essential I need to do for my health , just to get rid of the "muffin top"which can be uncomfortable , especially when sitting. I want my waist back.
I said to hubby, that I must look for an egg poacher and while we were in Harvey Norman , I asked and they had the cutest one. Hubby bought it straight away for me. It is a Sunbeam, which will poach 2 eggs, boil 6 eggs, make a 2 egg omelet or steam small vegies . It has a buzzer which reminds you the eggs are done. I tried it this morning and had 2 perfect poached eggs with a tomato. I love it.
Ladies , if you have that middle aged "muffin top" hanging around your middle, try it.
