DEFINITION OF SLIM BODY
Slim is also a synonym of thin, but, unlike skinny, slim means to be thin in an attractive way. The Oxford Dictionary defines slim as gracefully thin.
Slim is closer to the term slender. So, slim is always complimentary adjective, and many women would find it pleasant to be described as slim. Slim is the ideal body size desired by many girls. It is interesting to note that the term slim is exclusively used to describe women.
Another Reason and definition...
Human Body Shape is a complex phenomenon with sophisticated detail and function. The general shape or figure of a person is defined mainly by the molding of skeletal structures, as well as the distribution of muscles and fat. Skeletal structure and remains essentially the same for the rest of their life. Growth is usually completed between the ages of 13 and 18, at which time the epiphyseal plates of long bones close, allowing no further growth.
Many aspects of body shape vary with gender and especially female body shape has a complicated cultural history. The science of measuring and assessing body shape is called anthropometry.
HOW & WHAT FIVE (5) SIMPLE WAYS TO GET SLIM NATURALLY ?
Looking for ways to get slim naturally ?
If you want to lose weight (get slim body), you don't want to take diet pills or follow some ridiculous diet (cabbage, anyone?).
What you need to learn is how people who are naturally slim get that way... and stay that way!
If you find yourself trying to follow a complicated diet to lose weight or giving up the foods you love, you're likely to give up and go back to your regular habits because they're easier.
They key to losing weight and keeping it off is to learn the little tricks that make losing weight easy.
Take a look at these five (5) simple ways I am sharing to get slim body naturally ( say that 10 times fast ! ):
1 # Drink More Plain Water.
Surprisingly, many people reach for food when their body is actually thirsty. Water also helps your body to flush out toxins and helps keep you hydrated -- which helps keep you energized. According to the Mayo Clinic, even being slightly dehydrated can make you tired. When you're tired, you won't be as active.
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends, 3.7 liters (15 cups) of water per day for men; 2.7 liters (11 cups) per day for women. This doesn't mean you should be drinking that much water. You get water from the foods you eat (fruits, vegetables) and other liquids you drink (milk or juice, for example). About 19% of your water intake comes from foods you eat.
Drink at least 8 x 8 ounces of water per day and try to drink more if you are particularly active or if it's a hot day.
Water is the best choice when it comes to weight loss because water has zero calories.
2 # Grab A Piece Of Fruit Before Heading Out Of The House.
Before you leave your house, be sure to take an apple or banana with you. When you're out and about, you may not have access to healthy snacks when you get hungry. This could lead you straight to the drive-through. But, if you have a piece of fruit with you, you'll have something to hold you over until you get home.
3 # Eat Slowly And Stop Eating Before You Feel Full.
Have you ever noticed that naturally thin people don't stuff themselves with excess amounts of food?
They'll rarely eat larger portions or go back for second, and more often than not they have a natural awareness of their bodies and stop eating when they recognize that little signal that says, " Thank you, I've had enough to eat for now."
Start applying this habit in your own life by paying close attention to how your body feels as you eat. When your body starts communicating that it is now satisfies, stop eating.
Dis you know your brain can take up to 20 minutes to realize your stomach is full ?
Because of this, make sure to stop eating before you eat too much. Become aware of your hunger signals.
It helps if you eat slowly instead of scarfing down a full meal in 5 minutes. It's much more enjoyable, too, as you savor the food.
4 # Eat Five Times A Day, Starting With Breakfast.
Many people skip breakfast, thinking they're saving themselves some calories. This rarely works -- you end up overeating at other times of the day when you become too hungry.
Your body has gone without food for several hours while you were sleeping. It needs that energy to get started. By eating five (5) small meals each day, starting with breakfast, you'll stoke the fires or your metabolism, making it easier to lose weight.
And your body doesn't absorb all the nutrients when you eat one big meal a day. Breaking your calorie intake into several smaller, more frequent meals makes sense all around.
The National Weight Control Registry reports that 78% of their members who have lost weight -- and kept it of -- eat breakfast every day.
5 # Eat Cake.
Or chocolate. Or potato chips. Whatever "bad" snack is your favorite, it's okay to eat it sometimes, in normal sized portions. Naturally slim people allow themselves a few indulgences because they know this tends to prevent the overindulging that occurs when you deprive yourself of the foods you love.
