With summer technically over, the days of tank tops and shorts can be cast aside for another year. Don't worry about that keeping that unsightly bulge flattened – cover that midriff up and hoe into some wedges. Snack on pizza in the evenings instead of going for a run. Follow Bridget Jones’ example and trail it with a bottle of red and some chocolate. Alternatively, head to the pub for a couple of well-earned pints after work rather than killing yourself at the gym.
Yes folks, the time to retox is here. After all, research shows it's actually bad for you. It can lead to nasty side effects such as being a party-pooper. Like leggings and high-waisted jeans, just because these diets are in fashion doesn’t mean it suits you. They can give you the runs, screw with your blood-sugar levels, make you cranky and reduce your muscle mass.
Besides which, you were born with a set of kidneys, liver, skin and lungs – it’s their job to rid your body of toxins. It’s not necessary to ingest glass after glass of (vile-tasting) beetroot juice. So, pass up that wheatgrass shot and replace it with some Jager from the local bar – anything’s got to taste better than liquefied grass. Both will make you ill in the end – you’ll just have more fun getting there with the Jager.
