What Does It Really Take To Get The Body Shape You Want?

By Heather Hahn @HeatherHahnn

Bodies come in all different shapes and sizes. Genetics will determine your physical proportions for the most part. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re happy with what we get! It can be really difficult to accept the shape we are. And there are plenty of different ways we can change the shape we’ve got. But is there any way we’ll ever achieve the shape we really want?

Mindset is a big part of self-satisfaction. If you’re satisfied with your body, chances are you won’t feel the need to make any big changes. Learning to love your body in this way takes a lot of practice, though. After all, a woman’s body goes through so many changes in the course of her life that will alter her body shape. Can you learn to love it no matter what it becomes?

Diet will also play a part. We all know that overeating or eating foods that are full of sugar and fat can be harmful. They can also alter your body shape. You might store extra fat on your tummy or bottom. Maybe your face will look fuller. Undereating is equally harmful. We all need a certain amount of healthy fat in our diets. It protects the bones, and provides that extra layer of insulation to keep us warm!

So how can you alter your shape safely? Exercise is a good way to sculpt the body. It can take months or even years to build and tone muscles. Most of us exercise as a way to burn fat. But it is worth undertaking some strength exercises as well. After all, lean muscle is thought to boost the metabolism, avoiding excess fat on the body.

There are lots of different kinds of exercises that will work on specific areas of the body. You might want to tone your arms to give them more definition. Or you might want to flatten your tummy. It’s a good idea to mix up your workouts. And if you’re not really a workout kind of girl, why not get involved in a sport or activity you do enjoy? Swimming and Yoga both offer a full body workout but are a lot more fun than being at the gym.
