During the past years women have made great strides in improving and caring for their bodies. The interest of staying fit has grown much more popular in the past decade, and women athletes are faster and stronger then ever. Yet there still seems to be a lack of women who understand the truth about achieving a fantastic body.
So many women today are still trying to achieve the Hollywood look (i.e. Ally McBeal, Tori Spelling, Jennifer Aniston or Christina Aguliera), not understanding that the anorexic look is not attractive to men and is definitely not healthy. Most women today do not understand the importance of having lean muscle mass and are to scared of developing large, bulky muscles that would make them look manly.
Women do not actually realize though how hard it is to achieve and build large amounts of muscle. Women also do not understand how having more lean muscle mass actually helps boost their metabolism, and helps to burn fat faster.
There are four steps to achieving a great feminine body with shapely muscle and a low percentage of fat. They are:
- Eat a high protein, moderate carbohydrate, and low fat diet.
- Perform aerobic activity about 3-4 times a week.
- Do a well-balanced weight training routine on a regular basis.
- Take supplements that will help aid in losing fat and increasing lean muscle.
