Unwanted pounds are, at best, wearisome. They make your clothes bulge weirdly, they degrade your confidence, and they make you feel guilty after every large meal. And how on earth do you even lose them? Even if we find an ideal diet, how do we stick to it? Well, the first step is this – accept yourself.

You’re great, and eating well and exercising is there to make you feel better, not to guilt you into trying to look like the society’s version of a perfect woman. Okay, now that we got that out of the way, let’s dedicate the rest of this article to helping you out. Read on for some tips, specifically tailored to your body type.
