We’ve all got our own idea of the perfect body. Some people like slim bodies, others like curvy. Whatever idea you have of the perfect body, you need to know that you can achieve it. If you have the desire, drive, and right attitude, you can get exactly where you want to be! It’ll take time and hard work, but you can do it. In a few months, you’ll wish you’d started right now. Just think of where you could be! Here are a few tips to get the body you’ve always wanted – it’s actually really simple!
Make Sure You’re Eating Right
No matter what anybody tells you, you can’t eat what you want if you exercise. It is impossible to outtrain a bad diet. Eating the right foods is key to getting the body you’ve always wanted! Getting your diet on point is not about going on a diet. Let me make that clear. ‘Dieting’ is a bad thing to do, and a terrible mindset to have. This is a lifestyle choice, so make sure you see it that way. Here are my tips:
- Include natural foods in your diet. Eat plenty of vegetables.
- Track your food with an app like MyFitnessPal.
- Make sure you’re eating enough protein, carbs, and healthy fats.
- Never cut out a food group to lose weight.
- Allow treats in moderation. Be sensible.
- Don’t starve yourself.
- Read nutritional labels before eating something. You might be surprised at what’s in it!
- Watch out for foods that bloat you. Everybody is different.
Training is the key to shaping your body the way you want it. There are different ways to train, so it depends on your goals and what you enjoy. Just bear in mind that all body types and shapes are different, so you can’t get the same shape body as Jennifer Lopez if it isn’t in your genetics. That being said, you can make the most of what you’ve got and be the best version of yourself! I love to lift weights, as they help me to shape my body the best way I can. I also do HIIT, to help me burn fat. However, I know some girls prefer to do fat burning circuits that include resistance training. This also helps to shed fat and shape the body, but in a slightly different way. A personal training company could give you more advice on the best route for your goals.
Don’t Give Up
That’s it: once you have your diet right and your training sorted, the key is to refuse to give in. Consistency will get you where you need to be. We all have off days, you just have to try to make them as far in between as you can. I’ve had days where I’ve chosen a nap over the gym. I’ve had days where I’ve chosen a bag of crisps over broccoli. But I don’t beat myself up about it: I simply go back to doing what I was doing before, and all of the good outweighs the bad.
