Weight loss through fitness – Rules for each body shape

Weight loss through fitness – Rules for each body shape

Fitness plans talking about weight loss and body shaping through diet and physical activity often miss one major detail: while concentrating on general solutions, they fail in targeting the underlying cause of excess pounds and weight gain. This explains the lack of noticeable results in so many people who, despite a drastic diet and an intense workout routine, don’t manage to reach their weight goals and lose all the figure-destroying fats.

The key in obtaining a dream body lies in a personalized fitness guide and a diet adapted to your shape, weight, age and lifestyle. Although the basic rules of weight loss apply to all silhouette types, unless you’re following a fitness program created especially for your figure and addressing the most problematic areas of your physique, you won’t be able to shed off the pounds as fast as hoped.

So if you’re tired of seeing your chubby figure but don’t really want to invest in expensive equipments or don’t have enough time for hitting the gym daily and reading the newest fitness guide, here’s how you can trim those fats down in no time!

Fitness rules for the hourglassy silhouette

The purpose of any workout routine created for an hourglass body is to tone the upper and lower areas while burning off fats stored around the waist. People with this silhouette tend to store fats around the hips, thighs, buttocks and upper arms but often have a tough time trying to get rid of lower abdominal fat as well.

Exercises for this figure should concentrate on:

  • Arms, for a more balanced silhouette – the purpose is not to build muscles and develop some pumped arms but to tone them up for a more attractive look, so you should opt for lighter weights and more repetitions.
  • Legs and buttocks, for an overall sliming effect – in order to keep proportions in check, fitness routines with added weights are the most recommended ones. Squats with dumbbells, reverse lunges, crunches – both classical and using the stability ball, lateral leg raises, press ups and mountain climbers are recommended by absolutely any fitness guide to people with hourglassy body shapes.
  • Waist, for more definition – cardio exercises are the winning ones this time as they boost the metabolism, speeding up fat burning processes. Cycling, running, rowing, dancing, jumping rope and doing hula hoops are great ways of strengthening abs and getting rid of belly fat.

Weight loss exercises for the pear silhouette

Pears tend to have quite flat abs and they generally store weight on hips, buttocks and legs. Fitness plans for this shape should therefore concentrate on calorie blasting through exercises involving the entire body – cardio routines! The treadmill and cross trainer should be your best friends if you’re a pear trying to achieve a flawless silhouette, but outdoor running, swimming, doing step aerobic exercises and cardio dancing, playing tennis or whichever sport you enjoy is extremely helpful as well.

As for the toning part, here’s what your workout routine should include:

  • Biceps curls, triceps dips, press-ups and bench press exercises for strengthening the upper body and building more defined shoulders, arms and chest.
  • Squats with shoulders press, squats with lateral raise, side lunges with knees up, walking lunges and exercise ball glutes raises, for burning off fats on legs and buttocks and gaining more definition in the lower body.
  • Ab curls and oblique crunches, reverse curls and planks for strengthening the core area, toning the abdomen and improving posture.

The apple body type – recommended fitness routine

Apple silhouettes store fats on chest, arms and midsection, so they should focus on firing up their metabolism in order to burn lipids covering the upper body. Again, cardiovascular exercises are crucial for reducing the amount of fat but this time the key doesn’t lie in the workout’s intensity but in its length.

People with this silhouette are quite exposed to joints injuries, especially in knees and ankles, as their excess weight exerts pressure on legs while running or doing the elliptical trainer. Swimming and cycling are healthier options as they work the legs and buttocks without causing joints aches.

Classical fitness trainings have their role as well as even people with no excess pounds can look unhealthy and flabby if they don’t tone their muscles. So here are the most recommended weight exercises for apple silhouettes:

  • Chest press, back extensions, ab curls, triceps dips, oblique curls, press-ups, biceps curls, reverse crunches and exercise ball crunches for strengthening muscles in arms and core area and accelerating fat burning process at this level.
  • Exercise ball squats, squats with shoulder press, plie squats with lateral raises, walking lunges, leg presses, deadlifts, mountain climbers and walking on the incline for developing lean muscles in the lower body and shaping the thighs, buttocks and hips.  The main role of these workouts is to build muscles and increase mass but as you surely know, by strengthening muscles one also manages to burn more calories during fitness trainings and daily activities.

“Hot Mom” Facebook Photo Sparks Controversy

Happy Wednesday, dear readers! At this point, you guys are old hat at this: Gather ’round, grab your favorite beverage, and let’s meet over the metaphorical office water cooler to catch up on our favorite health-related stories this week. Don’t forget to let us know what you’ve been reading this week!

1. “Hot” mom stirs controversy on Facebook. Because what is social media for, if not for instigating? Maria Kang, a California resident and fitness enthusiast, posted a photo of herself in a sports bra and matching booty shorts surrounded by her three kids with the caption, “What’s your excuse?” The picture has since gone viral with more than 6 million views on Facebook and 12,000 comments ranging from “You go, girl” to “Not that I need an excuse for NOT working out, but here’s mine: fibromyalgia!” Check out the full photo on Yahoo! Shine, and then tell us what you think in the comments below or @Shape_Magazine.

2. Herbal supplements may not be as pure as you think. More proof that “natural” doesn’t guarantee that something is healthy: Canandian researchers tested 44 herbal products from 12 companies and found that 60 percent of them contained plant substances not listed on the label, and 20 percent included unlisted fillers such as wheat, rice, and soybeans. These hidden ingredients could cause problems for people with allergies and decrease the effectiveness of the supplements, researchers say.

3. Chicken plants in California will remain open. Despite calls to shut down three Foster Farms plants in California associated with the salmonella outbreak last week that sickened 300 people and sent half of them to the hospital, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will allow them to remain open. However, the USDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent warning letters to Foster Farms, and the company had to present a plan to address the many violations found at the plants, including unsanitary surfaces, improper dressing procedures for employees, and fecal matter found on chicken carcasses.

4. Need a quick pick-me-up? Call your mom! You know how your mother is always nagging you to call her more? Turns out, she knows best after all (as always does seem to be the case). Recent research shows that interacting with people you love such as close friends or family members act as “microbursts,” or little things you can do to give you an instant shot of energy, and might even be more effective than coffee. It’s important to note that this research is preliminary and hasn’t yet been peer-reviewed, but if you’re close with your family, it can’t hurt, right?

5. Running may not help you lose weight. In frustrating news for runners everywhere, it turns out that it may not be the best form of cardio if you’re specifically looking to shed pounds. Fitness expert Adam Bornstein explains why here.

Will Eating Late at Night Make You Fat?

This past Wednesday I co-hosted a twitter chat for Shape.com. There were so many great questions, but one particularly stood out because more than one participant asked it: “How bad is it to eat after 6 p.m. (or 8 p.m.) for weight loss?”image_0

I love this question. Truthfully, my patients ask it all the time. And my answer is almost always the same: “Eating late at night doesn’t cause you to gain weight, but eating too much late at night will.”

Let’s review: If your body needs 1,800 calories to maintain a healthy body weight and you ate only 900 calories by the time it was 9 p.m., you could in reality eat another 900 before bedtime. The problem is the longer it gets until dinnertime, the hungrier you get, and for most people the chances they will overeat increases. So what ends up happening is excess calories are consumed. I sometime explain this as the “domino effect.” You’ve waited so long to eat that by the time you do, you can’t stop.

But what should you do if you eat a well-balanced dinner at a reasonable hour and you are still hungry before bedtime? First off I usually recommend trying to figure out if you are really hungry. I like to use the acronym HALT. Ask yourself, “Am I Hungry? Am I Angry? Am I Lonely? Or Am I Tired?” So many of the times we eat at night have nothing to do with actual hunger. Once you identify what is really going on, you might be able to prevent late-night munchies.

RELATED: The Best Late-Night Snacks

Now if you really are hungry, I usually suggest a late-night snack of around 100 calories or less. For example: a piece of fruit or cup of berries, three cups of air-popped popcorn, a sugar-free Popsicle, a single serving of low-fat pudding, a glass of nonfat milk, raw veggies, or a six-ounce container of nonfat fruit-flavored yogurt.

One of the main reasons to eat earlier in my opinion is because you will sleep better. Going to bed on a full stomach for many people is a detriment and interferes with their beauty rest. And unfortunately if you don’t sleep well, there is an increased chance that in the morning when you are exhausted you will make poor breakfast decisions. But the best solution of all is to go to bed earlier—you can’t eat when you are sleeping.

Those Food You Can’t Eat While Losing Weight

Delicious food can be very alluring, especially for those who are losing weight. However, for fulfilling your ambition of being slim, you have to hold on. There are two types of food that should be avoided while losing weight: First is the food with high calories and second is the food that can be transformed to sugar easily.


  1. Canned Juice

It is well known that vegetables and fruits have abundant vitamins. However, some people just don’t eat fruits and prefer drinking juice. Actually, If you replace fruits with juice, you will fail to take in enough minerals and vitamins. That is because many minerals and vitamins have been lost during the process of producing them. Even though there remains the vitamin C, the amount of it will also reduce because of the exposition to the light.




There is a high amount of heat existed in desserts and most of the heat comes from the fat. Besides, many people would like to apply some cream to the desserts, which will add more heat. It’s better to replace the desserts with healthy fruits.




Do not suppose that salad can help you to lose weight. Although the vegetables do not make you fat, the sauce mixed in the salad should not be ignored. You would be surprised if you have a look at the fat content in the salad dressing. For example, every two spoons of French Dressing contain 134 calories of heat and 12.g fat while we only need about 2000 calories of heat and 66g fat every day.




4.Potato Chip

Potato chips are carbohydrates with low fat. However, once they are fried, they are no longer low-fat food. A small bag of fried potato chips has 220 calories and 12g fat, the heat of which is nearly the same as that of a hamburger.



5. Beer

Beer is essential at a party. However, beer contains lots of heat while there is little nutrients in it.



6. Instant Noodles

Instant noodles are not only convenient, but also very delicious. However, there is a great amount of fat contained in instant noodles because of the process of being fried. Therefore, it’s better not to eat it as possible as you can.



If you want a scientific way to get rid of the fat, please have a look at the liposuction machine that is being sold at Gorgeouslim.com:


How does Liposuction Machine Work?

In Gorgesouslim, liposcution machines are one of the hottest products. This product has received many good reviews. However, for those who are interested in liposuction machines and hesitate about wheter to buy one, you may first learn about the theory.

Liposuction machines apply the ultrasonic effect to help to get rid of the fat.

Ultrasonic effect in fat cell-form a Cavitation among the fat cells-fat cells burst-fatty acid-exhausted from lymph
Ultrasonic produce an Implosion effect to the liquid, which means the expand and compress of waves produce numerous tiny gaps in the liquid, there is the gas and vapour inside the gap, the ultrasonic exert a positive pressure influence to the liquid molecule in the compress periode, but a negative pressure influence in the expand periode. There is cohesion in the liquid or biological tissues, In the low density fat cells, the bonding force of Molecular is weak, the lower negative pressure generated by the ultrasonic can produce tissue gap, called “cavitation” In physics. Implosion results of micro-gap in the intracellular and extracellular can cause enhancements of molecular motion, that reaches a high energy level, and finally lead to the breakdown of fat cells.
