Get Rid of Muffin Top – 3 Simple Steps to Lose Your Muffin Top
Getting rid of the top of your muffin can be frustrating.
How many times have you found a gorgeous pair of jeans that make your legs look ten miles long, only to find that the fitted waist makes your muffin top stick out on the sides?
Or what happens when you’ve splurged on some sexy lingerie to seduce your man, only to find that the stringy sides cut into your hips and make you look like a string of sausages?
Unfortunately, many of us have experienced these all too familiar problems.
Fortunately, to get rid of the top of your muffin, you only need to follow three simple steps:
• Changing clothes
• Alter your diet
• Exercise directed
In this article I will go over these three areas, which are the keys to success in losing the top of your muffin for good.
change your clothes
This step is actually ridiculously simple!
Many people don’t know that wearing tight clothing is the number one cause of muffin tops, which is why even the slimmest women among us can suffer from it!
When shopping for pants, underwear, or any item of clothing that rests around the hips, it’s important to have the mindset of finding something that fits your body rather than something that’s in style or that your friends are wearing.
This change in mindset can be difficult, as it may mean going up a size or changing your style, but you won’t look back once you start discovering that clothes fit you better and make you look amazing; no one needs to know your size after all.
alter your diet
Many weight problems occur when the body does not receive a proper balanced diet.
People who eat a lot of salty or sugary foods (particularly microwaved and processed foods) cause their bodies to store fat because it would be harmful to their organs to try to process so much sugar and salt at the same time.
The body stores this fat to use for energy at a later date, but if you continue to fill up on more of these unhealthy foods, the fat will never have a chance to be used and more will accumulate on top.
This is how a vicious cycle of weight gain directly affecting the top of the muffin and other related issues can begin.
Many of us don’t understand that the body works this way, so we’ll eat sugary treats and white bread, but once we have this knowledge, we can put it to good use!
This means cutting out those salty and sugary processed foods and replacing them with healthy, natural foods like fruits, vegetables, sweet potatoes, and even butter!
do targeted exercise
We all know that exercise is important in keeping us healthy, so if you’re trying to get rid of your muffin, exercise can play a big role.
There are many exercises you can do to tone your hips and waist, but my personal favorite is hula hooping!
Hula hoops are cheap and so much fun, which makes it easy for me to stay motivated to use one—it doesn’t even sound like exercise to me!
All you need to do is stand inside the hoop and hold it so one edge rests against the back of your waist, then rotate it with your hands and use a twisting motion at your hips to try to keep the hoop spinning around your waist. . . Once it drops, turn it the other way and keep going until you’ve done about 20 minutes of hula.
Bright colors are great for engaging children. I like to encourage hula competitions to see who can last the longest as it helps me get the best workout and appeals to the competitive nature of my two.
In addition to specific exercise, I’d suggest trying to get about half an hour of general exercise each day.
Try not to get discouraged though, I’m not talking half an hour of exercise, it could just be going for a walk somewhere or vacuuming.
