i want a nice body!

<p>No this is not a parody thread.</p>

<p>I want to go from a rectangular shaped body to an hourglass figure. Possible? Tips?</p>

<p>exercise and diet</p>

<p>Unlikely to happen. One loses weight where one loses weight, and that rarely happens in an hourglass-forming manner. Overall, one loses weight evenly over the entire body, maintaining the same shape. If one is a rectangle, significant alterations in shape would have to be made to create the desired form. While it may be possible to shape the posterior to a certain extent through the gaining of muscle, the bust is essentially stuck as it is.</p>

<p>Corset .</p>

<p>I like my ribs.</p>

<p>Exercise and diet would just make me even more emaciated appearing.</p>

<p>And thanks Millancad. I've been losing quite a bunch of weight reetnly so everything of mine is kind of shrinking.</p>

<p>And yo. I love corsets. I was going to buy them until I realized I was too small for them. :/ Back to the other plan.</p>

<p>Not necessarily. If you put on muscle in the right areas it would probably help. You should look into weight training. Bench + squat</p>

<p>Liposuction It works </p>

<p>^No, it doesn't (not in this case, anyways).</p>

<p>Ah, you are a block of marble waiting to be chiseled into an hourglass.</p>

<p>meddo def needs to lose weight</p>

Nice one :)</p>

<p>A natural way? Swimming is the way to go! Work for both men and women.</p>

<p>At first I thought that core training and aerobic exercise would tighten and therefore narrow the waist, but based on some quick internet reading it apparently does the opposite. So unlike with that other OP, I guess you should probably avoid Pilates if your goal is to narrow your waist and maintain a proportional hip and bust ratio.</p>

Gyrotonic expansion apparatus and Gyrokenesis mat work, Bikram, Iyengar and Kundalini yoga, ballet, cycling, slide board, NIA, world/jazz/modern dance, walking, hiking, tennis, ice and roller skating, pelvic floor work, Calanetics and calisthenics (which both emphasis twisting at the waist over sit ups) will sculpt an hourglass figure.

Limit swimming and cardio machines. Completely avoid Astanga Vinyasa flow Yoga, Kick boxing, Boot camp classes and all heavy abdominal training as they all build the obliques which you need to be small to create a waist. These regimens also square off the entire torso and you should never do these fitness programs religiously if you want an hourglass shape.

<p>There's a lot more on WikiAnswers</a> - How do you get an hourglass figure. I dunno how trustworthy his or her answer is, but she seems to knows what she's doing.</p>

<p>lol WikiAnswers have been known to be suspicious before, but that's okay.</p>

<p>Em, I think meadow needs to maybe increase in some places and stay the same in others, judging from her self-labeled emaciation. I would say eat more lol, but maybe the weight just keeps on uniformly distributing itself.</p>

<p>I guess you could always take advantage of clothing: wear a tight belt around your waist to accentuate it and wear fluffy skirts lol?</p>

<p>Wait a few more years.</p>

<p>Are there not foods that help you gain weight in certain areas?</p>

<p>hahahha i wish I could gain a little bit weight as well :[</p>

<p>or you could wait and see what happens to ur body after u have a baby. lol j/k.</p>

Lol, I kind of already do that. It's be nice to have a true figure like that though. Although I do adore short poofy skirts. :]</p>

That's kind of what I was looking for. Changing my eating habits seems more plausible than beginning to exercise.</p>

<p>Chicken = a bigger butt</p>

<p>so I have heard</p>
