Hey there ladies! Today I’m going to share 5 EXTREMELY unusual slimming tips to help you to achieve your optimal or desirable shape. These techniques work with or without a complimentary diet and exercise routine, but greater results will occur when you live a healthy active lifestyle. But nevertheless, here they are!!!
You heard right! Why waste your money on professional spa body wraps when you can do it at home for one tenth of the price?! A popular makeup remover called Albolene was originally created to cleanse facial pores and moisturize the skin. Well it also has another benefit! It can unclog pores on the surface of other problematic areas such as legs, thighs, stomach, arms, and more, and rid the body of excess water weight and toxins on the surface of the skin (http://www.livestrong.com/article/305722-albolene-for-weight-loss/). This occurs when used as a body wrap. Take a generous amount of Albolene and rub it into the problem area, wrap the area with plastic wrap, then continue on with your normal daily activities! Go for a walk, take a nap, or hit the gym for an hour while you sweat away the excess water on the surface of your skin! The covered area will sweat and the skin will appear slimmer, smoother, firmer, and softer when you remove the plastic wrap! You can leave the Albolene covered area wrapped for one to eight hours. Greater results occur when used during a workout. Albolene is super cheap (like $5 to $10) and can be found at almost any drug store in the makeup remover section. YouTube videos will demonstrate how to do this and will show you the amazing unbelievable results!
This one sounds funny huh? Lol What better time to get a workout in then in the safety and comfort of your own home, behind closed doors? No gym membership, trainer, or weights required! “Squats lift the butt, tone the legs, increase flexibility, improve balance, strengthen the core, and tone the upper body (http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articles/fitness/exercises/the-benefits-of-squat-exercises.html.” So forget the embarrassment that may come from not knowing whether or not you’re doing it right, or if people are watching you; do it at a time that’s comfortable and convenient for you! Try doing 50-100 squats, (10 or 5 sets of 10 squats) without weights, while you’re brushing your teeth at night. Doing squats while brushing your teeth creates an easy habit to follow, and forces you to spend more time brushing your teeth as well. So not only will you wake up to toner, more defined legs, you’ll notice a brighter and bigger smile as well!
If we have to drink 6-8 cups of water a day, might as well make it fun. Studies show that drinking cold water “increases metabolism, increasess immunity, improves circulation, and improves body pain (http://www.360living.in/article/health-benefits-drinking-cold-water).” Cold water is more satisfying, which makes it easier to drink in large amounts and meet the daily recommendation. It also helps to burn more calories by raising the body’s temperature in order to absorb and use it in the body, which aids in losing weight. There are also many benefits to drinking warm water as well though! For starters, warm water helps you feel full faster, and makes digestion occur faster. “Drinking warm water also helps break down oily food by making it easier to digest. Warm water breaks down solid food into semi-solids and also helps food from concealing together. This helps the process of absorption and digestion on a large scale (http://www.360living.in/article/health-benefits-drinking-warm-water).”
Lol no really… Studies show that “laughing increases both heart rate and calorie expenditure by up to 20 per cent – and the longer people laugh, the greater the effects (http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/calories/burning_calories/laughing-burns-calories.htm.” Laughing also strengthens the core, face, and back, tones the abs, improves self esteem, lowers blood pressure, and significantly reduces the stress hormone Cortisol (http://www.care2.com/greenliving/8-health-benefits-of-laughter.html). So go ahead and laugh your butt off! Haha get it? ;D Lol
“For a slimmer figure, share your dinner!” That’s right, instead of ordering a giant meal at a restaurant, ask someone at your table if they want to split something with you! Restaurants don’t charge you extra for an extra plate on the side. I wouldn’t recommend this at a buffet or an all-you-can-eat joint though, just try using this tactic while you’re out with friends, at a business meeting or party, on a date, or even in your own home! Half the plate= half the calories= half the YOU!!!
So there you have it- 5 extremely unusual slimming techniques that are GUARANTEED to work and take barely any effort!!! Let me know how these work for you and please share this article on your Facebook wall! Thanks for reading!!!
