Get Perfect Body?
Want to know how to get the Perfect Body? As a woman, you want to be comfortable in your skin before you flaunt it to others and that comes with having the right body shape. However, this so called “Perfect body” has taken on several shades of meaning over the years. There was a time that celebrated a woman’s curves. A voluptuous figure with a heavy bust and wide hips was considered attractive. It was also considered a sign of good health and fertility. With the sexual revolution, the concept of the “perfect body” has been inverted on its head. Thin and androgynous is the idealized body shape. And, when thin is in, who would fall for the full-figured hourglass look? That’s one of the main reasons we take to dieting. Popular diets and weight loss pills owe their popularity to the changing notion of the ideal body shape. Had the fashion industry not perpetuated the “tall and skinny”, I bet they would have all been out of business.
Lifestyle + Eating – Exercise = Obesity
Our lives devoid of exercise also add layers and layers of fat internally. The basic principle to lose weight is to spend more calories than you consume. If you don’t exercise, there is no chance to burn the extra calories. We live frantic lifestyles with an endless list of responsibilities. We barely find time to relax leave alone exercise. At the end of the day the only thing you want to do is hit the bed. That is what is causing part of the trouble for you. Exercise also plays a major role in balancing your mental state. It helps you cope with your emotions and suppresses binge eating triggered by emotional imbalances. So now, what must be done? It’s time to restore the brain to natural thinness. But for that you must first determine how severe your food addiction is. If you would like to take the test, the Yale Food addiction scale is a handy tool. Developed by Dr. Gearhardt, this was among the first scientifically validated food addiction tests. You have a resume of the test below!
