Breakthroughs for Your Body Type
You don't have to cut out dairy entirely. Studies demonstrate that calcium helps to regulate the way fat cells store, build up and break down fat. Subsequently, low-fat dairy sources such as milk, yogurt and cottage cheese help promote weight loss. Choose low-fat (2%), not no-fat dairy.
- Butt-blasting Breakfast: Low-fat Greek yogurt with fresh fruit and granola
- Lunch: Low-fat cottage cheese with tomatoes, cucumbers and grilled chicken
- Snack: Low-fat milk with dark chocolate cocoa
- Dinner: Lean turkey burger with low-fat cheddar cheese
Workout for a Pear Body Type: Curtsy Squats & Rows
To work this area, do resistance training and get a cardio workout at the same time by using something called "complexes." Complexes are a type of circuit training consisting of body sculpting moves, done back to back in a circuit format. Pears should combine curtsy squats and rows. You can do this routine with a resistance band or by holding milk cartons or cans. Start by doing a curtsy. Then, lean forward with your hips and go right into a rowing motion with your arms. Do as many as you can with good form in 30 seconds. Repeat this exercise 2-3 times. You'll increase lean body tissue, boost your metabolism, and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
