You can still trim inches from your waist in time for Christmas, with our one-a-day easy exercise ideas… And we’ve got some stellar treats to be won along the way!

LOSE 2in FROM YOUR WAIST in 24 days

PLUS prizes to WIN every week!

GOOD INTENTIONS can go up the chimney when the mince pies, mulled wine and chocolate boxes appear, which is fine for a short time (it is Christmas, after all). But these days the festive season seems to kick off long before you open the first door on your advent calendar.

This year, why not offset the indulgence with a little exercise each day, so come January it will be easier to get back on track? To help you, we’ve come up with a quick and easy fitness goal for every day of advent. Rather than watch your waist expand as the month passes, you’ll whittle it down – especially if you combine it with our caloriecontrolled diet planner on p40. In fact you could lose up to 2in by the time 25 December arrives!



Walking is among the best forms of activity for our muscles, joints and heart. It also burns calories like a furnace! Even at a steady pace, you’ll power through up to 80 calories in 20 minutes. Remember to pump those arms to work the upper body, too.
