Beat the bulge - naturally with Dr Marilyn Glenville

 Janey Loves Dr Marilyn Glenville 'lose the bulge' programme

I'm delighted to be able to big-up and really recommend a fellow author and expert. 

Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD is the UK’s leading nutritionist specialising in women’s  health.

As we get older many of us have a tendency to gather fat around the middle, especially if we a re 'apple shaped' it difficult it is to lose it.  Your arms and legs may be acceptable looking, but the middle bit, from your bust to your groin - seems to defy all attempts to diet and exercise. Perhaps your clothes feel uncomfortable, your waistband is too tight, you’ve got a gaping blouse and a “muffin top” layer of fat pouring over the waistband of your jeans or worst of all – you’ve been asked when your next baby is due.!

What you may not know is how dangerous the fat around your middle really is (more so than fat on your thighs or bottom), increasing your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and cancer (especially breast cancer).  Because of where the fat sits on your body, normal diets, even rigorous exercise regimes rarely work.  

Ballooning waistlines

Research from the Department of Health in 2005, has shown that Britons now have the fattest stomachs in history.  Between 1993 and 2004, women’s waistlines ballooned
Figures published in 2004 showed that between 1951 and 2005, women’s waists have increased by 6.5in (16.5cm).

We have also become generally taller and larger but there is an enormous difference between the 1.5in gain in height, bust and hips and the 6.5in gained on the waist.   There is no doubt that we have lost the traditional hourglass figure (synonymous with a pear shape) and women have become more apple shaped with all its health risks.  

So by following the recommendations from the excellent book 'fat around the middle' you'll not only get rid of fat around your middle, but you will also be doing the best you possibly can to prevent health problems in the future. Short term, you get to look better.  Long term? You live longer. It’s as simple as that.
