3 Skinny Secrets For Summer Weight Loss

Jun 28, 2008
There are plenty of celebrity (fad) diets that are covered in the media. But if you really think about it, the people who have to lose weight fast and keep their bodies fat-free are models! And we are talking about bikini models and lingerie models (think Victoria's Secret)! These models are constantly nearly naked and in front of cameras so their bodies have to be as perfect as possible. So body fat is a no-no in their world.

But not everyone wants to look as thin as them. Sure, we all want to be fit, healthy, and slim, but stick thin? Maybe not. Even still, we can use their fat loss methods to sculpt your body to become beautiful, fit, and, most importantly, healthy. So, from the playbook of those bikini and lingerie models, here is the secret to fat loss: 3 simple guidelines!

1. Stay focused on losing weight and burning fat but also stay calm and relaxed! Keep yourself free of stress because stress causes lots of changes, specifically with hormones, that can show up on your skin or other parts of your body. This can hinder your fat loss goals. So maintain a stress-free lifestyle as much as possible. Great ways to help you de-stress: meditation, yoga and breathing exercises. These three techniques focus on the mind's relaxation but remember that your mind and your body are connected and if one is stressed, it will cause the other to react or change in response to it. The plus side of a stress-free life? A stress-free life! Who wouldn't want that?

2. Exercise as often as possible! Models usually workout 2 times a day. Sure that might sound scary but let's break it down. Each exercise session for the models can be maybe 20 minutes walking briskly in the morning and then another 20 at night. Doesn't sound as bad, right? By spreading out your workouts, you train your body to speed up its metabolism, which will help you lose fat and water weight. If you can't do this twice-a-day routine, not to worry. Workout in the morning for as long as you can. Add exercises that will make you sweat and get your blood pumping! Change it up each time you workout to make sure you keep your body on its toes. Make sure to workout often; daily would be best but if not, go for every other day. Just make it on a regular basis to help you with your fat loss goals.

3. Drink water but stay away from salt and wheat! Okay, your body will always retain water but your body also gets rid of it easily and quickly when you exercise. It is also extremely important to keep yourself well-hydrated before and after your workout. Really, your body will sweat so much that you will need the water post-workout. (Make sure to avoid sports drinks and fruit drinks while working out.) Now the other half of this equation is to avoid salt and wheat products. Both of these retain even more water than your body does naturally. Wheat products, in particular, retain water in your midsection, right where you don't want fat! Common wheat products that models avoid are pasta, bread, pastries, donuts and cakes, basically anything with "wheat" or "wheat flour" in it. When you are looking to lose fat, this is top priority in your strategy!

So there you have it! The 3 guidelines that have been keeping bikini and lingerie models in tip-top fat-free shape! Very simple and not at all disruptive of your lifestyle! These 3 guidelines are the foundation of the secret to fat loss. So read up, try these out and here's to your fat loss success!
