Gemma’s heav­enly body

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - By ED GLEAVE

GEMMA Atkin­son wants to prove to the na­tion that get­ting in shape doesn’t have to be hell.

The ac­tress, 34, has never looked back since over­haul­ing her diet and start­ing a fit­ness regime years ago.

She loves do­ing the tough ex­er­cises that keeps her so toned.

And she reck­ons if fans fol­low her lead they will find it eas­ier to stay fit for longer.

Gemma said: “I’ve been guilty of try­ing fad di­ets in the past to get in shape for a hol­i­day. But it’s about mak­ing a life­style change.

“Strictly was a time when I re­laxed my diet a lot be­cause I was danc­ing. I did put quite a lot of weight on but I was happy and I loved it.

“And as soon as the show fin­ished, I knew that within two or three weeks I’d get back to feel­ing my best.

“When you know what to do, it’s not an in­stant panic to lose weight. It’s about mak­ing small changes.”

The for­mer Hollyoaks and Em­merdale star is of­fer­ing her fans the chance to fol­low in her foot­steps with her book The Ul­ti­mate Body Plan, inset.

Gemma added: “I wanted to do a book where it’s about get­ting to a cer­tain stage men­tally.”
