There are genetical and structural diferrences.
2. Thou can only get what you give.

INSIGHT: The body is so marvelous and  Continue reading FITNESS COMMANDMENTS

THE ISRAELITE JOURNEY

Some of us already know what an Israelite journey means, but for total clarity, ‘Israelite journey‘ is a term used to describe a journey or process that takes excessively longer duration than the expected or normal time.

The phrase was gotten from the bible story of  the journey that the israelites made from Egypt to the promised land.The journey took them 40 years instead of 40 days.I know that it might  sound ridiculous and odd but  we Christians believe it as a result of our faith and we know it is real.

Now, if you think that the Continue reading THE ISRAELITE JOURNEY

BOOBS..

Breasts are wonderful,the fact that they come in two even makes  them astounding. They were the very first things I fell in love with when I got to this planet earth.Yeah,I was breastfed as a baby and I guess you had some natural milk too.

Ok,let’s get real.

Breasts primarily serve as food for the little baby at least first few months till he/she can start eating  real food and ofcourse they serve as a beauty point of attraction.I will focus on the Continue reading BOOBS..

Corsets and Cinchers

It could be so frustrating when you want to have a slim waistline/flat tummy and you’ve tried all sorts of method but to no avail.Probably you have been to the gym couple of times and you’ve also tried some fat loss pills and slimming teas but still you are not getting the results that you want and now you are contemplating on using cinchers and corsets.

As a matter of fact there’s nothing wrong in trying all sorts of method as it only shows that you really want to improve your current body state.However, you must understand the mode of operation of the methods you try out so that you can be in the safe zone.

Corsets and cinchers give the illusion of a slim waistline. They make your stomach tucked in and might actually cause some sort of permanent effect on your body if worn over an extended period of time.

One important thing to note is that corsets and cinchers do not reduce your body fat,they only compress your tummy and redistribute the fat to the extent that it appears smaller .The internal organs get pushed away form the waistline gradually as a result of the the pressure exerted on the abdomen,upper organs move up while lower organs move down,it’s similar to what happens during pregnancy.Just like when you compress a pillow ,it would appear smaller because  air escapes and some of the foam would shift up and down assuming you squeeze the middle part,but the pillow would come back to the normal size after some time when the compression is released.

Cinchers and corsets might make you sweat more and lose some water content which might result to a temporary decrease in body weight but the weight would still be gained afterwards. However there might be a permanent alteration if a corset is worn over time because it would constrict the waistline and the four floating ribs can actually get compressed which would lead to a change of waist size.

The difference between cinchers and corsets is that cinchers compress the tummy and cause a decrease of about 2 inches off the waistline while steel boned corsets instantly take about 3 to 7 inches off  to give you lovely curves(hour glass effect).

There are certain conditions that could result if corsets are worn over a long period of time,for instance:

  • there might be  occassional shortage of breath  and this reduction of oxygenation might eventually  cause metabolic syndrome which will lead to  weight gain because the metabolism will be altered.
  • the back and abdominal muscle mass will start to reduce and lose strength
  • It could cause skin irritation.

Now before you make a decision as regards wearing a cincher or corset,I want you to imagine  a situation where  you happen  to be in a new town .
If you will be there for just few days,it’s reasonable to lodge in a hotel.But if you will stay in that town for a year or two,would it still be reasonable to lodge in a hotel? shouldn’t you just rent an apartment??So if you want to give the illusion of a slim waistline for an occasion/ceremony, or even a photoshoot,sure you can wear the corset and appear slim on the waistline. But for how long will you keep doing that when there’s a better and long lasting method of achieving the slim waistline. …Yeah the best and long lasting method is exercise and appropriate food intake.

The decision is always yours to make. Assuming you decide to use a corset, please do not lace your corset too tight to the extent that you start experiencing discomfort such as  indigestion, numbness in thighs and buttocks.Infact, corset wearing should be a very slow process in order to avoid injury,so don’t force it on your body because of expectations of fast results in a short time.Most importantly,extended use of waist cinchers is not advised.

I don’t want you to be disturbed if you still have  tummy fat and perceive your efforts so far as a failure.You have not failed,your efforts are preparations because you are already on the path of success.Eventually the little drops of water would become a mighty ocean.

Now you know what it is.Enjoy.
