Losing those final few pounds
Sleep More: Sleeping releases fat-burning and appetite suppressing hormones.
Add Spice: Spices such as cinnamon can cause your metabolism to spike, add to coffee for great results.
Interval Train: Fast bursts of hardcore exercise interchanged with slower bouts, such as running and walking, burns more calories than running at one pace for the same amount of time.
Take Vitamin C: Those who do burn 39% more fat when they exercise.
Drink more: Water keeps the metabolism going and curbs appetite.

Is your make up bag past its sell-by date?
What to look for: If a product has a limited shelf life (less than two and half years) EU guidelines require that its label displays a throw-out date. This will appear in a drawing of a jar - its not obvious so look hard for it. This is the life expectancy in months from when you open the product.
Mascara - 6 months life expectancy.
Powder-based Products - around 24 months life expectancy.
Wash your brushes: They harbour way more dirt than you would ever think.

A Healthy Pudding from Rock Star turned Chef Alex James
Roasted Pineapple Pudding
2 medium pineapples
Lemon or Lime Marmalade to glaze
1. Preheat oven to gas mark 7/ 220˚C/425˚F
2. Peel the pineapples and cut into quarters lengthways. Leave on the foliage as it looks pretty once cooked. Rub all over with the marmalade and then place in the oven. Cook for around 30-40 minutes, turning regularly so it caramelises all over.
3. Serve with summer berries and crumbled Gorgonzola or yoghurt.

Make your Walk Count
Walking is the most effective strategy for building up fitness, says Timothy Ferriss author of the US best seller The 4-Hour Body.
Walk as fast as possible for 15 minutes - so fast that you should persistently want to jog - seven and half minutes out and seven and half minutes back in.
Walk farther each session, but always return in the seven and half minutes.
If you really push yourself and complete this three times a week, you could be in tip-top condition in only four weeks.
Enjopy the reading!
