Let’s skip the small talk (I know you want to improve your body shape there’s always room for it) and get straight into the part that will help you to attain a hourglass figure.
Getting this ideal body shape – 36” breasts – 24” belly – 36” booty – is not for everyone. It’s hard to reach these body dimensions when we’re all different. That’s why your “perfect” hourglass figure may vary depending on:
- Body type;
- Bone structure.
This means everyone’s hourglass sizes will differ. So we can’t talk about 36″ – 24″ – 36″ (or 90 – 60 – 90 in cm) unless you have a perfect high, body type and bone structure. You should rather focus on achieving a decent body ratio, than counting every inch.
The body ratio you should follow for a hourglass figure has to be 3:2:3 inches on an average (that means it can also be 32”- 22”- 32”, or 32”- 22”- 34”). But if you’re somewhere there, your goal is reached!
3 Steps To Getting An Hourglass Figure
Achieving a hourglass figure is not easy, and genetics works pretty hard to stop your progress. But that does not mean it is impossible. So, keep your focus on and start with this plan now:
To get the dream body, 60% of this depends on what diet you are following. Whatever you do, make sure that your calorie intake is not more than 1200 calories per day. Divide the 1200 calories as follows:
This includes any kind of lean meat, fish, tofu, eggs, almond, yogurt, pulses, skimmed milk, soya beans, etc.
Low-fat cheese, olive oil, fat from meat, etc.
Have leafy vegetables, cucumber, carrots, etc. Fiber is very necessary to regulate your digestive system properly.
It will normally come from whatever you are eating. The few things that you can consider are whole wheat bread, oats and brown rice (but not very often)!
Healthy drinks: 10 – 12 glasses
The next process in your diet will be detoxification where you can flush out those toxins from your body and certainly look better! The best ways to do are by having green tea (rich in antioxidants) and drink 10-12 glasses of water daily.
The next 30% of your hourglass figure depends on the type of exercise you are following. You have to individually focus on every part of the body along with both aerobic and anaerobic exercises.
10-Minute Yoga Session
First, start with yoga in the morning. Do it for 10 minutes to kick start your metabolism. Below is a video that will suit you the best at this stage to reach your goal.
Weight training is the next thing that you have to do 3 days in a week. You can buy equipment and do it at home or, for better result, hit the gym!
3. Sleep Well
The only way you can reach your goal is when your body is getting enough rest. Make it a point that you get a good long 6 – 8 hours of sleep daily.
Some other tips for a hourglass figure are:
- Avoid alcohol;
- Do not smoke too much (preferably at all);
- Count your calories (so you don’t exceed 1200 calories per day);
- Reduce salt and sugar intake.
