What did Loose Women host Saira Khan share on Instagram?
Saira posted a clip for her Instagram followers and wrote alongside it: “We inhale and exhale, our tummy goes in and it comes out. That’s how we breathe, that’s how we stay alive.
“My tummy is not flat. It is rounded and when I eat, it gets full and gets rounder still. This is totally and utterly normal. If I did not eat, my tummy would be flat.
“I love my food, I need it to survive and for my brain, cells, organs, muscles etc to function properly, and for my hair, skin and nails to look and feel healthy.”
Saira Khan admits she’s ‘a bit of a poser’
Writing further, Saira confessed that she will hold her stomach in while posing to make it look more toned.
She explained: “If I am posing – which I do a lot, because I’m a bit of a poser – I hold my tummy in, to give me a more toned look and shape.
My tummy is not flat. It is rounded and when I eat, it gets full and gets rounder still.
“Also engaging your abs, that’s sucking your tummy in, is a great thing to do to tone your muscles to gain strength in your core, which as we get older, we need for mobility, flexibility and range of movement.
“Holding your tummy in when walking the dog, cooking, doing the school run, or even when shopping is a fab way to connect with that core and feel strong.”
The Loose Women host went on to encourage her followers to try engaging their own cores – and warned them not to compare themselves to others.
She added: “Looking at someone else’s core and comparing it to yours, is an exercise that is pointless. Look, admire respect and then work yours. Engage, feel and love your core today.”

Another commented: “You do look amazing and inspire me every day.”
