Celebrities keeping fit: Davina McCall
In this week's Fit & Well, Davina exclusively reveals her regime is down to some very simple, and very achievable, diet and exercise rules – ones that we can all actually follow. Hurrah!
1. After you have kids, or if you've just let things go a bit, it's the lower tummy muscles you need to target. The secret is to tilt your pelvis in.
