Beauty Comes From the Inside: Ultimate Weight Loss Tips for Different Body Types

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. Look, if you get into it because you can’t stand looking at yourself in the mirror, it’s all going to go wrong. Your weight doesn’t determine what kind of person you are, and most of the time it doesn’t even necessarily indicate your health level. 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.

Hourglass

Thinner waist with fat piling up on your hips and chest? You’re an hourglass, and getting a nice figure shouldn’t be difficult to accomplish if you follow an easy diet. Healthy fats full of omega-3 are going to help out a lot, so if you want a good idea for a snack, nuts such as walnuts, cashews, and almonds are perfect. Eat a handful of this mix between lunch and dinner to stock up on energy. Whole grains are also really useful for you, so quinoa, buckwheat, barley, and brown rice work great. Try whole grain toast with avocado and replace processed, sugary foods with fruits and veggies. Hourglass also benefits from plant-based protein, so tofu, edamame, lentils, and beans should be a part of your diet.

When it comes to exercising, you want to focus on weight lifting and improving your muscle tone. Lunges, pushups, leg raises, the plank, step ups and lifting kettlebells should all be in your routine.
