Q: I am approaching 45 and would like to get rid of my muffin top for the beach. I have a sweet tooth and enjoy life too much to give up cakes and chocolates. I go to the gym a few times a week and do park runs regularly. I don’t have more time to train, so what advice can you give?

A: You cannot outrun a jam doughnut. The end.
