I believe that a perfect beach body would be different for different individuals. For men, they could either be lean or bulky in physique and can look equally hot. Women can be curvaceous (like Kim Kardashian) or have a hot-lean structure (like Megan Fox) and look equally hot in a beach wear. Therefore, there is body structure that naturally fits a person and I believe that’s the structure that looks the best on a person. So, whatever your body structure is, it has to be toned and you have to stay in shape. Here’s what you need to do.
The first thing I want you to do is ask your self, how badly you want to have perfectly toned beach body. Yeah! I am sure, you want to have it really bad; but it’s going to take your efforts and hard work. Be determined about not giving up this time and make a plan for your self. No Pain, No Gain (seriously)!
Make a Plan Chart
Make a plan. Jolt down a structure of your workout regime, how many meals you’d eat a day and what your diet is going to be like. Follow that religiously so that you can manage your workout’s and other chores well.
Eat Small Meals
If at all you are following a hunger-diet, in which you eat just once a day or so, thinking that you will lose weight like that, then please stop. You will lose no weight like that. Instead eat about 5 small-meals a day. Schedule your meals after every 3 hours. This will increase your metabolism rate and will help you lose fats faster. Not only that but this will also give you all the essential ingredients that you would need for a healthy diet, as you’d be eating 6 different items in a day.
Follow a Healthy Diet
Eating 5 times a day is such a liberty but there are a few laws you cannot forgo. First is, eat balanced meals. I will not say leave chocolates, cocktails and cheese altogether but reduce their frequency. Treat your self with a yummy cheese pizza; but only once in a week. Eat high protein meals that will help you build muscles and replace fats. You can consult a nutritionist or a dietitian and get your diet chart. I feel it’s essential for you to know what should you really avoid eating in terms of any health issues. Follow it sacredly and, finally the most important thing; drink plenty of water. Always keep a bottle with you! Consumption of sufficient water helps in maintaining your metabolism rate, purifying blood and in improving blood circulation. Water really works like magic.
Follow a Workout Regime
Join the gym, if you already working out but you are seeing no results it’s time to get a personal trainer or simply consult a trainer and tell him you want to increase the intensity of your workout. I am sure you know that, your body gets accustomed to any form of exercise in a few months and you need to upgrade them. Otherwise you will not lose any weight, you will maintain though!
Listen to this expert advice from a Celebrity Trainer, Ramona Braganza who trains Kate Beckinsale, “Combine interval and cardio circuit training for one hour. For instance: 10 minutes of cardio: Three sets of 15 to 20 reps of three different strength exercises, like ones that work the chest, quads, and triceps. 10 minutes of cardio: Three sets of 15 to 20 reps of three different strength exercises, like ones that work the back, hamstrings and biceps.”
Maintain a balanced combination of cardio and weight-training. Gym is a must, though a few people don’t really like working out in the gym. In that case, you can opt for other forms of exercise like dancing, kick-boxing and yoga.
Don’t Aim for Skinny
This is certainly not for men! Woman, if you are naturally thin that’s a boon but if you are not, then don’t aim at getting the zero figure. Your Body Mass Index (BMI) should be 20. I dunno how cool you think being zero figured is! So to demotivate you I have Something to tell you. Men prefer women with curves. Yes that’s true! I am sure you don’t want your guy eying at some other curvaceous figure. So, if you are thinner than the minimum BMI standard, then start eating now and yes you’ll need to work out too. Even models under BMI of 18 are not allowed to walk the ramp anymore.
Keep Yourself Mentally Fit
This is important as your mind does it all. It is the most powerful organ in your body. If you don’t keep it well it will do the same to your body. You sure have heard of people who under high stress, put on weight. So keep your self happy and your mind in peace, everything else will follow.
It’s very easy to divert from your goal but keep your dream and target in mind. Call your friends and get motivation. Think of the woman/ man who you think has that ‘envious beach body’ and keep yourself motivated to achieve it. Look at Jenifer Aniston or Halle Berry in their 40s, they can make any man weak at the knees, with that shape. In order to motivate you, I am so motivated myself, that I can’t wait to hit the gym!
