What does it take to be a Model ?
Now that you are mentally prepared to make the change, it's time to actually begin to physically make the effort.
1st Stop eating hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, and pizza, and start eating grilled chicken sandwiches, blackened tuna sandwiches, and turkey burgers.
2nd Stop drinking colas and milk shakes, and start drinking fat-free milk, juice, and lots of water. Drink eight to 10 8-oz. glasses of water daily.
3rd Stop eating candy, cookies, cakes, and pies, and start eating fruit, fat-free yogurt, graham crackers and fat-free Jell-O.
4th Stop sitting on the couch watching TV, and start a cardiovascular program of running, jogging, or fast walking for 30 minutes a day, four to six days a week. A good heart rate per minute for burning body fat is 70 percent of your maximum heart rate. Begin your cardio routine by starting slowly. Take about 10 minutes to warm up to your target heart rate. Once you reach your target heart rate's beats per minute, keep it there 20 to 30 minutes. Do a 10-minute cool-down to slowly return your heart rate back to normal.
5th Start exercising your muscles three times a week or every other day. You should complete three to four sets for each exercise with 10-12 repetitions per set. Remember: there are three areas of the body that will normally show when wearing an evening gown — the arms, legs, and back. I realize that you must have your stomach and hips toned and tight in order to fit into your gown, and you will definitely need to exercise these areas of the body. What I am talking about now are the areas of your body that everyone will actually see when you arrive at the prom.
Running and fast walking will help tone your legs along with burning body fat. Performing Alternate Dumbbell Curls (see accompanying photo illustration) will improve the look of your arms. Doing Bent-Over Dumbbell Rows will give your back a more attractive appearance.
