Are curves in and thigh gaps out?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Some people argue with stars like Beyonce, Kim and Kylie Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Blac Chyna, and Cardi B; more and moree popular curvy instagram models tagging #curvespiration; and individuals getting butt implants and injections, that thin, trim, skinny, and thigh gaps are out. But I beg to differ.

One could argue that there are stars like Bella and Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and almost 90% of other Hollywood starlets; more and more fit instagram models tagging #thinspiration, and the majority of the female population trying to lose weight and slim down proves otherwise.

There have always been some people who prefer to be slender and others who prefer to be slim. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Variety is the spice of life!

Additionally, As I always try to point out you can still have curves, which typically refer to a hourglass shape, and have slim, streamlined legs. It just also means you have an ample bosom, thin waist, and a nice serving of hips/butt.

We all know fads come and go. There was a time when men wore full jean outfits, the word juicy across their backside, and got their belly buttons pierced.

But contrary to what anyone says, I don’t think there will ever come another time when being slim and fit is undesirable. I know way back in the day the wealthy wore their fat as a symbol of pride that means they could afford to eat all the things, but we’ve moved beyond that.

It is in fact healthier to have a lower body fat – studies prove that slender people tend to live longer – and you are able to be a lot more active and do more things when you don’t have extra weight bogging you down.

So don’t let anyone tell you that you have to get with the times and suddenly desire something you don’t. You are certainly not an anomaly because you’d like slender legs and prefer to have a lower BMI. Just keep doing you!

Lots of riders get big quads from cycling alone

Lots of riders get big quads from cycling alone

So you have a bike and love riding it, but don’t love what it’s doing to your legs and thighs as much or the way your jeans aren’t fitting anymore?!

You are not alone or imagining it. Yes, bike riding can make your butt and thighs / legs and quads bigger – whether it be a result of temporary swelling, increased hunger (which leads to overeating and fat / weight gain), and if you ride your bike for exercise or for long periods of time, a higher likelihood of overdeveloped muscles.

Just take a look at many of the women who attend spinning classes (soul cycle or fly wheel), or amateur and professional road cyclists! Although they may not be obese, chances are their legs are a lot more muscular, developed or toned than you want yours to be (that is if you are reading this post… if not, ride on!).

Sure, a lot of these people work out and train their legs separately with heavy weights, but a good deal of them have built up their muscular quads solely from spinning without ever stepping foot in a gym!

So, you have every reason to be wary!

But that doesn’t mean you have to lock up your wheels and throw away the key. Believe it or not, it is totally possible to ride your bike without getting big, bulky thighs and quads – and today you’re in luck because I am going to give you the answers you have been searching all over the internet for.

If you want to know how to ride your bike without getting big, bulky legs and thighs / quads, there I reveal ten tips that you should follow when cycling in my video below).

If you follow my tips you can totally enjoy the freedom and joy of riding your bike without having to worry about it negatively affecting your physique (thigh width) and forcing you to buy a bigger pant size.

I specialize in helping women achieve lean, slim, svelte physiques that they find feminine and I’m happy to share how YOU can still maintain your body or body goals while experiencing one of the cheapest forms of transportation and greatest source of child like fun there is!

Why it’s ok to eat under 1200 calories a day

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

1200. Does that number sound familiar to you? Chances are you’ve heard that number thrown around as the bare minimum amount of calories you can and should eat in a day, right? But is there actually any truth to this widely believed mantra or are there people and situations which eating less than 1200 calories per day is totally fine?

The answer is no, there is no truth to this blanket number which often gets applied to everyone, and yes, there are definitely people and situations in which eating fewer calories is not a big deal. All one needs to do is read a few intermittent fasting boards (e.g. eat, stop, eat) to see that people are definitely doing okay dipping below that number periodically; and then there are other who don’t go as low but do eat under 1200 calories a day to lose weight / maintain and are still flourishing.

So if you ever hear someone claim the following: you will drop down dead from malnutrition if you go under 1200 calories, your body will suddenly eat all your muscles, your metabolism will stop working or slow to  crawl, my favorite because it’s so ludicrous – you won’t lose weight any more because your body will go into starvation mode, or any other silly and nonsensical rumors, you can write them off because you will know the truth.. and if you want, you can show them this video to shut them up.

In the following video, I cover just a few of those reasons eating less than 1200 calories a day is appropriate for some people and some situations and won’t do any of the above, so click play and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
