Infrared Body Wraps
Let’s keep it real: how many of you ladies know how sexy celebs keep their abs tightly toned and flat? Well, if you don’t know, we’ve got the scoop on the hottest fat-burning technology under the sun, called “Infrared”. This little secret fat-burning technique is super effective when combined with a basic body wrap, and can quickly trim your midsection and waistline in just 60 minutes. Infrared body wraps have been used by some of the hottest stars in Hollywood to keep their midsections slim and toned. Now, you too can have that same star treatment with this quick trim technology that’s offered at most local spas, to supercharge your metabolism while burning up to 800 calories in just one hour. That’s why we recommend the Infrared Body Wrap as our #1 Curvy Tip for “slimming belly fat” to help you accentuate your sexy hourglass figure! (We only recommend wrapping your arms, stomach, and waist—not your buttocks, hips, or thighs—to help maximize your curves.)
Running on the Sand
Jogging is light work and simply nothing compared to running on the sand. In fact, did you know that running on the sand burns ups to 600+ calories in one hour while toning and sculpting every muscle in your buttocks, hips, and thighs? Well, it’s true—that’s why Running on the Sand is our #2 Curvy Tip for achieving a shapelier physique. This challenging workout tones the entire lower body like no other to enhance that round, firm, and perky backside you so desire! Running on the sand is especially great because it offers low impact on your joints, plus it’s a total body workout. (We recommend running on wet sand near the shoreline to reduce the intensity levels of the workout especially in the beginning.)
Power of Squats
Tone your legs with high-set, deep squats. Squatting is simply the most dynamite workout because it hits the butt, thighs, and legs at the same time. But doing more than one set is not really all that effective. Research shows that performing only 1 set of high-repetition squats was more effective at building size and more muscle mass than doing multiple sets. So the rule of thumb here is: start with one set, squatting as deeply as you can, for as many reps as you can until you can’t do it anymore reps. Squatting with one set for as many reps as you can, at a consistent pace, activates your fast-twitch muscles which helps build more muscle mass really quickly, and generates that extra boost to your backside that you so desire.
Delicious Healthy Collard Greens
Ready in 5 minutes
Thoroughly wash your greens, and then roll into a bushel. You should slice your greens into thin slices. Next, preheat a skillet with a teaspoon of Red African Palm Oil. Then add garlic and onions for taste. Stir lightly or until tender. Once the greens are tender, they are done. Serve in a large bowl and sprinkle diced tomatoes on top, adding a pinch of sea salt.
