This one is clearly for the ladies ‘How to get skinny’ unfortunately is asked of me quite a bit and I hate the word skinny!! I feel ‘skinny’ promotes an unhealthy body image that girls shouldn’t aspire to. I prefer to go with the term ‘fit’ not this is a body to aspire to, one with good muscle structure, low body fat and healthy curves that is sustainable for a lifestyle. So lets avoid the term ‘how to get skinny and rather go with how to get ‘fit’, for this look girls need to add the following into their lives
- A caloric deficit; where you are eating just below what your body needs to maintain its current body weight. This should be done carefully and with guidance to ensure you are getting the right macronutrient breakdown.
- Perform strength training; This is an absolute must!! No cardio bunnies are going to maintain a low body fat and lean physique. Training with weights will build lean fat burning muscle to help you maintain that dream body.
- Drink plenty of water; This will aid with digestion and the elimination of toxins in the body.
- Eat 5-6 small meals a day; Once your macros have been established you need a well balanced meal plan made up of 5-6 small meals spread 2-3 hours throughout the day to keep you in a fat burning non catabolic zone and fire up your metabolism
