Are You .......
Looking how to achieve the .......
A person who feels desired never neglects hers/him self
Only through a relationship with another person we can realize personal our "beauty".
That's why is it so devastating the impression we get when we encounter people who are denying their body.
"These are people with absent the sense of their body”
writes Italian psychoanalyst and writer Aldo Carotenuto.
Indeed, our appearance is a sign of our mental health.
A sign that we realize the existence of our body, so we can identify the other's existence.
After a difficult winter, therefore, that might leave traces in the soul and the body, why not press a pause and ask ourselves if indeed we perceive ourselves and others.
Any season change, is a time of change.
In nature, weather, within us.
It is our chance to look in the mirror, getting rid of unnecessary burdens and bring out the best in us.
In front of the mirror
Stand in front of the mirror and look at your reflection.
What could 'fix' us in order to feel even better with our body?
Lord or Quasimodo?
Often, what bothers us in our appearance and blocks us to highlight our strengths is the bad condition of our body.
Most of us are used to operate only certain muscle groups in our daily activities.
This, however, has the effect of shifting the centre of our body gravity , and therefore the adoption of incorrect posture.
So as time goes, slouching, affects our spine to lose its alignment and our belly raises.
If you try to suck the belly, straighten your back and lift up your heads, straining your neck, you will be faced with a completely different image in the mirror!!!
Our strengths are, easier highlighted now, while we feel full of confidence. Although in reality the correct posture has nothing to do with the straight back and chin lifted, but about the conservation of the natural curves of the body, these moves are a good start. The good news is that it is never too late to improve the way we stand.What we need is a program to restore our bodies “ in the straight line”.
Further we will find all the details.
"Apple" or "Pear"?
Then again what bothers us in the mirror, is the excess pounds, which - depending on our body composition they are concentrated mainly in the abdomen or the buttocks.
These areas, tend to store our extra pounds.
That depends mainly by our genes, but there is no reason to stay uninvolved.
Recognizing our body type, we can choose the appropriate exercises to improve our appearance giving appropriate and balanced weight to body parts.

The top exercises for straight trunk
In 10 sessions you feel the difference,

That was the motto of the founder of the Pilates method that helps the body to get the perfect shape.

Better Posture in 4 steps
The roll up
Lay on your back with toes 'looking' at the ceiling and arms stretched behind your head while tighten buttocks.
Step 2 :
Bring hands to the front and passing over the breast lift up your head and breathe, while starting to fold our trunk to the front.
The lower body remains "stuck" to the floor.
Exhale as the hands tend to touch your toes, and push the belly button towards your spine.
Take a breath and exhale. while rolling your torso slowly to the back, leaning-your spine us unfolding at layers. When you touch the shoulders down, lower your head and bring your hands back.
Sit cross-legged on the floor.
Bring the right arm behind the body, so that the outer part of the palm touches the point located between the shoulder blades.
Lift your left hand up, then turn the palm facing backwards and bend your elbow to try to catch the fingers of your right hand (the replay will succeed) .
Throughout, the buttock must remain constant.
Remain in the same position for a few breaths and repeat changing hands
How to Exercise and Diet flat belly if you are ... “Apple"
"To "kill" tummy, we only have to engage in our abs" ... Wrong, say experts!!!
To burn the fat that accumulates in the abdomen,
we should, in conjunction with our abs, follow a program of aerobics and also adopt a healthy diet.
We burn excess fat with aerobic exercise.
Begin 3 times a week for 20 minutes and gradually we reach 30minutes.If type "apple" conduct the following types of aerobic exercise: cycling, walking, tennis. We focus on abs. The side abs will help to separate the waist from the remaining body in order your body not to look like a “block””
Step 1: Lay on your back with knees bent, feet on the floor and hands on the neck to support the weight of head. Raise slowly shoulders, staring at the ceiling and without lifting your back from the floor. Descend slowly and repeat.
Step 2: As we're lying on your back, raise your feet flexed so that calves are approximately horizontal to the ground. With hands, neck, slowly lift up the trunk. Descend slowly and repeat. This exercise focuses on the lower abs.
On the move
Do not underestimate the power of "symptomatic" exercise, the experts advise us. In simple words, it is advisable to use the stairs to the subway instead of the elevator, to go walking in the neighbourhood grocery store or even to get off from the bus a few stops before. Being on the move at every opportunity stimulates our metabolism.
Diet Foods deflate
To maintain your weight and avoid annoying blowing, seek the contribution of fiber, mainly contained in vegetables and fruits. Experts recommend consuming 25-35 grams fiber per day in order to reach the maximum benefit.In practice following three practical rules every day, we can be sure that we cover our daily needs in fiber.
1. We eat daily 2 ½ cups of vegetables Top foods: Cauliflower, broccoli, peas, greens, spinach
2. Consume at least 3 daily moderate fruit Top foods: dried plums, figs, kiwi, berries.
3. Replace cereal products with wholegrain Top foods: Oats, brown rice
Secret for ......“newers“....
The sharp increase of fiber in our diet can cause the opposite effect than expected, ie bloating or feeling of "heartburn.
Therefore, it is advisable to incorporate fiber in our diet gradually adding about 5 g. additional week.
Perfect buttocks if you are ... “Pear"
We burn the excess fat that is concentrated around the hips with regular aerobic exercise.
Begin 3 times a week for 20 minutes and gradually reach 30 minutes. In type "pear" include the following types of aerobic exercise: cycling, running, swimming. We focus on exercises for thighs and buttocks to sculpt in their "full".
Lay on your back with legs bent and soles of feet are flat on the ground. Both arms beside the trunk with palms face the floor. Rise slowly pelvis upward, squeezing buttocks, until they form a small bridge.Caution!!! The body should be in a straight line (do not hyper extended).
We lay on the knees and elbows. We raise our one leg bent at a right angle and make small movements upwards, with the sole of the foot showing the ceiling. Caution!!!: The movement should be limited to the hip area and your middle back does not move, or "breaks".
Cellulite :Drink plenty of water. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, which have diuretic and detoxifying action. Select as many fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamin C, which is essential for the regeneration of skin cells and thus to combat the "orange peel».
Top Foods: Citrus, colourful peppers, strawberries, kiwi. Consume 2 times a week fat fish (eg swordfish, salmon), which are good sources of protein and beneficial polyunsaturated fatty acids.
We say 'NO' to food borne cellulite, ie mainly in saturated fat (eg butter, sweets, fried foods), salt and alcohol.

4th SESSION : Mini detox program
The best gift we can do to ourselves is to offer our body a mini detox to welcome spring. With small changes in diet and lifestyle we can get rid of the accumulated toxins in the body.
Detoxifying drinks: We start our day sipping a cup of hot water, where we add the juice of half a lemon.
Drink 1.5-2 litters of water a day, to flash out toxins. Through the day, try to drink a fresh juice and 1-2 cups of mountains herbal tea.
Throw the glove.
A good massage boosts the metabolism and helps in blood circulation in areas that tend to accumulate toxins.
i.e: hips, buttocks and thighs. Add some almond oil and rub with large circular movements to 'difficult' areas.
During sleep, toxins accumulate in the surface of the tongue. Every morning, therefore, slightly scratch your language with the inner side of a spoon or even better with the special dental tool sold in pharmacies.
