Nothing is impossible in life. Whether you’re planning to become a millionaire by 30 or you want to get the perfect beach body; you can achieve anything you want if you really put your mind to it.
I know this sounds like an overused phrase that only exists in the books. But come to think of it; those who wow you with their great bodies are normal people like you, the only difference being that they took action. So why would you even accommodate the thoughts that you can’t achieve it?
You must really think that getting a glowing skin, flat abs and waist curves is a herculean task that only a few are destined to accomplish. It’s not so easy though, but if you’re willing to put in the work, nothing will stand in your way to bag it.
Here are 5 realistic ways to get the perfect body that you can be proud of.
1. Medical procedures
The fastest way to achieve the body shape you’ve dreamed of, is through a medical procedure. With the right surgical procedure, what might take you several months or years to accomplish on your own, can be done within hours. One such procedure is Emsculpt; a non-invasive surgery that simultaneously eliminates fat cells from your body and tightens the muscles in the abs and butt area.
It goes without saying that as effective as these procedures are, they need to be sustained with exercise and good diet. In reality, an Emsculpt only helps you build the muscle that you typically need to support your physical exercise. That being said, it’s important to note that these procedures must be done based on recommendations. You need to discuss your options with your doctor before making any decision.
Regular exercise is a time-tested strategy for achieving a great body. Although it seems like a long term approach, regular exercise also has immediate effects on your body. When you nourish your body with adequate exercise, your skin glows and gets healthier. That’s because exercise helps the blood to circulate and the main function of blood is to transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to all parts of the body including the skin.
In addition, you must focus on exercises that help you shed body fat (mainly the belly area), build flat abs, and grow your curves. The overall impact of your exercise might not be immediately visible, especially when you need to trim down a lot. All you need is to put in the work and stay true to the plan.
One thing about people who have great skins is that they pay enough attention to their diet. They understand that what they eat has a direct impact on their skin because the nutrients from food are what the skin feeds on. If you’re on a workout routine, you have to complement it with great diet in order to have sustainable results.
Generally, foods such as avocados, walnuts, sunflower seeds, green tea, soy, and sweet potatoes are good for the body. But since you’re combining good diet with exercise, it’s always good to go for foods that help you build your abs too.
Getting the perfect body is no joke. As much as you want to go all out and give it what it takes, you must also be wary of bad habits. The reason why a lot of people succeed in this regard is that they have little but powerful habits that bring the best out of their efforts. They get adequate sleep, sleep early, avoid late-night eating, cut out junk food, avoid smoking, and reduce alcohol intake. They literally take all the precautions that could stand in their way to attain their desired goal.
If you find that you’ve not had any meaningful result since you embarked on this journey, you might want to check your habits and see if there’s anything you need to change.
Great things are achieved through discipline and consistency. If you’re the type that easily gets bored by routine activities or you lack the patience to follow through with any structured exercise, chances are you would have issues nurturing your body.
The truth is that having the skin of a 16-year-old doesn’t happen off the bat; it takes consistent effort and perseverance to make it happen. You have to stick to your workout and diet plan even if it seems like you’re getting nowhere with it.
