    Hellooo there TSR!

    FIRST of all I KNOW I'm not obese or even FAT so this isn't an attention seeking thread.
    Basically I hate my body and the other day even my ex asked if I've put on weight I'm just so shapeless?! And I would love it if you fitness gurus out there could give me some tips on how to sort it out.

    I'm around 5 foot 6
    Weigh about 55kg

    I really don't like my :

    - Bingo wings
    - Shapeless bum
    - FAT BELLY
    - Big thighs

    I want to be toned and slender and seriously get rid of my fat belly that makes me look pregnant in tight clothes. So yeah...Please help

    Diet tips?
    Exercise tips?
    Are you doing crunches?
    because if you are, stop, crunches build muscle at the front of your stomach and actually make it look bigger, you need to do some sort of twisting exercise, like this one from my yoga class:
    Lie on your back with your knees hugged to your chest
    Move your left elbow to your right knee
    Then move your right elbow to your left knee
    and repeat, it's much better for stomach toning

    .
    That builds you obliques. Which builds muscle underneath your love handles, making them look bigger. That's not an improvement. Bicycles are also probably better than normal crunches for building the rectus as well.

    Also it is really important to stretch - This will lengthen all your limbs, so if you are worried about chunky thighs then this will help to spread the "fat". Maybe join a pilates class.
    Or we could just put her on the rack, that will help stretch her out too :rolleyes:

    Someone said earlier it's not complex or something and turns into glucose--> fat really quickly. OMG I'm getting so confused. Too much conflicting advice. Ahh okay maybe I could have protein shake with breakfast? My lunch is eggtastic I don't think I could have eggs for breakfast too :P
    Please don't listen to that person, they are clearly misinformed. The carbs you need to avoid are the refined sugars. Fruit and oats are good for you so eat up!

    So you only go out with models???
    lol no, models are too tall with me being 5ft11ish, but I do have standards

    (Original post by allypallywally)
    Toned Bum =SQUATS - atleast 30 a day,
    Toned Stomach -Crunches - at least 50 a day,
    Toned arms and back -press ups - man ones -try 20 to start with.
    Also it is really important to stretch - This will lengthen all your limbs, so if you are worried about chunky thighs then this will help to spread the "fat". Maybe join a pilates class.

    Although you really don't need to, your body is beautiful, and don't doubt it!
    ha worst post ever, lol at stretching spreading fat

    Please don't make out like all carbs are the devil. Refined carbs are best avoided but complex carbs such as oats, brown rice or quinoa provide a good source of energy and keep you fuller for longer. Excess of OVERALL calories are what makes a person fat, not just those from carbs.
    You can get enough carbs from leafy green vegetables. Our bodies never evolved to digest those sorts of carbs so it'll always be difficult for it to do so.

    It is a fact that our bodies require protein to rebuild muscle tissue AND that rebuilding muscle tissue burns calories regardless of what you're doing after you've finished exercising. Filling your belly with oats and rice will do nothing to help that process.

    It is carbs that have been linked to obesity and heart disease, not fats.

    Yeah that was the joke, are the posters on this forum completely asinine? That's the second time I've had to state this
    Yeah... and I am continuing that joke. Try to stop being so antagonistic.

    Well I love my leafy greens but not giving up oats and quinoa for anything! Also did you know that quinoa is a complete protein source.

    Eating the wrong kind of carbs increases risk for heart disease, i.e. refined and high GI carbs. But I've never heard of wholegrain oats or brown rice being linked to heart disease (in fact quite the opposite, they may help to prevent it).

    And here: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0417194344.htm

    Can you please provide a reliable source to state otherwise (not from the Daily Mail LOL).

    There is hope, maybe you should try getting off your ass and doing a bit more about it though, 90% of the posts I see by you on fitness are all of this vein
    Why are you so desperate to insult her? There's nothing wrong with her body.
