Being no stranger to the gym, and keen on fitness and healthy eating too, I have always considered myself to be fit and to have a reasonably good body.
But there was one area, no matter how hard I tried, that I just could not get results with – my stomach. I did the usual things most gym guys fall for, such as making my arms and legs as big as I could and going for what they call the ‘rugby player look’.

Having just read an article about a body builder without an ounce of fat being told she was obese according to her BMI, I protested that muscle weighed a lot more than fat. But, yes, after undergoing further tests, including a dexa scan to check bone density and fat percentage, I discovered to my horror that while my muscle was 71% my body fat was 29% - definitely leaning towards obese.

First of all, eating a load of carbs as soon as you get up is not necessarily good for you, because and hour later your body is craving even more carbs and sugar.
A couple of hours later I did not feel the usual hunger, but had room for a few macadamia nuts, and some coconut pieces, and a glass of coconut milk.
