Bravo to Miss Hewitt for standing up – and against the way that society judges a woman’s looks. Scrutinizes, I think the term was.
There is little sense in the way our culture views women at the end of the day. I believe that society is a little too obsessed with such things.
Miss Hewitt definitely doesn’t have a need to lose weight, she looks fine as far as I’m concerned. She is not the kind of person that is anywhere near having any type of weight problem whatsoever.
Yet, there are people out there that may be motivated to lose weight not because for the sake of appearance issues (imagined more often than not), but rather due to health issues.
1. Aerobic exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes 5 or 6 days a week. – Hold off on the carbs until after this 30 minute bought of aerobic (continuous movement) exercise – walking is perfect for this and is low stress on the body as well.
2. Drink plenty of water. Models are usually told to drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water per day. That is the standard 1/2 liter more or less. Drinking more may help to keep you fully hydrated.
3. Weight bearing exercise about 3 times a week. You need to do something to build / maintain muscle mass when attempting to lose weight. Losing muscle is not your goal – losing fat is. Lose too much muscle and you won’t be looking as good as you could!
4. Everyone talks about more frequent and smaller meals. Try making sure that most of those meals are protein oriented. Allow fewer carb meals in a day and never two in a row – and not just before your aerobic exercise. – This all has to do with the way your liver stores your short term energy supply.
It’s like a sandbox. If you fill it too much it will overflow – and make fat.
Don’t overflow your body with carbs. Give time between carb meals.
5. Make sure you really need to lose weight. Beautiful women like Jennifer, look just fine. Don’t get caught on the idea that you need to lose weight to improve your looks. That shouldn’t matter all that much. Worry about losing weight if your doctor tells you that you need to for health reasons.
* Check with your doctor before dieting or changing your level of exercise.
