"We inhale and exhale, our tummy goes in and it comes out - that’s how we breathe, that's how we stay alive," she wrote. "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. 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."

Warning her followers that a six-pack is not always a "sign of a healthy body," she added: "Some people have gone to extremes to get one. Sometimes they have to virtually starve – that's not healthy. But a strong core, that allows me to live my life with quality and able to the things I want to do, is why I work it. A strong core also gives me confidence and comfort in my clothes."

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."
