Lentils are really, really good
Being overweight is bad - no surprises there - but so is the kind of fat you can't see.
When you age, your body stores fat around your organs and that can be a major problem. Women are more vulnerable to it than men, and lack of exercise and a poor, high fat and sugar diet, can contribute to it.
But, as presenter Angela Rippon found, sometimes it's a problem in spite of a healthy lifestyle. And that's where lentils come in. Eating high resistance starch, found in lentils and chickpeas, helps. As does inulin food supplements, which breaks down internal fat stores.
