INCHES LOST with HEALTH GAINS!

Six months ago, a group of HFG readers set out to trim their belly fat and shrink their waistlines. We’ve caught up with them to see if they’ve won the inch war

THE RESULTS

AS REGULAR HFG READERS KNOW, losing weight is all about focusing on the long term, not on those faddy diets where you lose 7lb in a week, then put it all back on a few weeks later. And experts confirm losing fat from around your waist isn’t only about looking better, but it has important health benefits. That’s why our Get Waisted challenge focuses on losing inches rather than pounds.

MIDDLE MANAGEMENT

Losing belly fat lowers your risk of lifestyle diseases because ‘visceral’ fat around the belly area wraps itself around your organs – liver, pancreas and intestines – and increases insulin resistance. This makes you more at risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers (see p27). It can also have an adverse effect on hormones such as oestrogen.

Six months ago, we challenged readers to lose inches from their waists by following – mostly! – a healthy, well balanced diet and cooking mainly HFG recipes. Turn the page for their final measurements, along with their top inch-loss tips, which helped them along the way, plus advice from our experts.

So did they Get Waisted?
