WHAT TO DO
To bold back, try this version of the super woman pose, says personal celebrity trainer, Nadya Fairweather (nadyafairweather.co.uk).
Lie face down on your mat, feet slightly apart and lift your chest, head and arms as a super woman.
While holding this position, pull your elbows back and imagine that you are pinching a pen between your shoulder blades. Extend your arms back to the flight position and then bend the arms that pull the elbows back.

Continue this movement for eight to 12 repetitions. Rest for 20 seconds and then repeat. Go for three sets.
Some people think it is a bit painful on the pelvis. If this is the case, place a folded towel underneath for some extra filling.
WHAT TO EAT
Your diet can also help with this, says nutritionist Shona Wilkinson (shonawilkinson.com).
Oats are great for trimming fat because they are full of fiber, which slows digestion and therefore reduces your appetite.
Water-soluble fiber, which is found in oats, also binds and helps prevent the absorption of fats.
Apples contain a water-soluble fiber called pectin, which helps to reduce how much fat you absorb. If you eat an apple half an hour before a large meal, this fat can be removed from your body faster.
In addition, green tea contains antioxidants, called catechins, which are known to help increase your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories.
