HOW AND WHY TO ACHIEVE THE NEW, SEXY, HEALTHY BODY!
The future of fashion no longer looks fantastic on just those with a BMI of 18.
One of the biggest controversial topics in fashion is making a difference in the year 2009. When shuffling through magazines I find myself shocked to see that the new fashion silhouettes will actually look good on a figure such as mine, and I am NOT a size zero. It seems that designers are finally coming to their senses and realizing that a size zero is not the most attractive size for a woman to be.
“Milan stands alongside Paris and New York as one of the world's most important fashion events. Like the other two it has, until now, resisted demands to stamp out the waif look. Fashion labels Prada, Versace and Armani have already agreed to ban size zero models from their catwalks,” says Ashley Rogers from Metro.co.uk.
Now that the waif look is out and starving yourself is no longer the way to achieve the ideal body, where do we go from here?
Eat as many times as you like each day but make sure that what you’re eating has some kind of nutritional value and your portions are not larger than life every time you pick up a fork. Tip: Bring healthy and easy to prepare snacks on the go.
Mix it up by going back to the basic simple four basic food groups: carbs, veggies, fruits, and meat that way your body gets its full nutritional value from each group. Tip: Pack your own lunch. You’ll save money and know what you’re eating.
Hydrate your body by drinking lots of water. Try to stay away from sugary drinks like pop and artificially flavored juices. Tip: Carry a non disposable water bottle with you at all times.
Easy Lifestyle Changes
Try to stay busy. Lately I’ve noticed that the busier I am the less I concentrate on weight loss. While I move around all day completing the never ending list of things to do I am burning calories without even breaking a sweat. So KEEP BUSY! Tip: If you find yourself having 2 to 3 hours of spare time in a day, join a sports team, take up pottery lessons or knitting; whatever makes you happy.
Tone up baby! There is not one workout regime that works for every single person so I won’t bore you with 30 different types of crunches or how to get rock hard buns. You need to figure it out for yourself what works. Target your troubled areas by researching exercises for those specific muscles. Throw in a bit of cardio a couple times a week and you’ll be on your way in no time. Tip: Its not about being the skinniest you can be, keep it simple and you will achieve a healthy BMI.
These simple changes will help you to achieve that sexy body you deserve. A relief that has been long awaited is finally here and people are noticing, so take advantage of this skinny expectation leeway and look the best you can by following a simple diet and keep it easy by adding activities to your lifestyle that keep you moving!
