Here are effective tips to guide you on achieving that model look and succeed in your glow-up challenge!
Lose Weight the Healthy Way
There are many ways to lose weight, but some of them are not ideal as they may disrupt your metabolism too much as well as your sleeping patterns. This can lead to feeling lethargic, losing the luster of your skin, or other more serious complications.
It is recommended to lose weight gradually and steadily, so do not tax your body through sudden and forceful weight loss. It is also ideal to consult with your physician or a dietician to smoothen the weight loss process. Perhaps they can provide recommended fat burner pills and a cohesive plan to shed those excess pounds and keep them off as well.
Note that any sudden weight loss is bad for the body as some of the organs may not be able to cope with the fats and toxins that are forcibly flushed out of one’s system. To avoid health problems down the line, commitment to a steady and well-planned approach is needed.
Exercise for a Toned and Fit Body

A model body is all about being lean and toned. You don’t have to be super thin but the goal is to achieve balanced proportions.
Focus on the following types of exercises to have that catwalk-ready physique:
- Trimming exercises – These are best for decreasing body fat. Cardiovascular exercises such as swimming, running, biking, jumping rope, and cardio kickboxing are often part of professional models’ workout routines. Aim for those that can raise heart rates to 75-90% of your maximum capacity. Alternating between high-intensity and moderate-intensity will further increase your body’s ability to burn fat. Aim to perform these cardio and endurance exercises on most days of the weeks and for 30 minutes to a one-hour duration.
- Stretching – Most runway and editorial models sport the long and lean look. To achieve this, doing stretching exercises is highly recommended. The goal is to elongate your muscles and make your whole body more flexible. Not only will you then have a leaner look, but you’ll also be less prone to injuries. Stretch major muscle groups after your workouts. You may want to try yoga too or use tools such as elastic exercise bands.
- Core and Posture-related Workouts – Modeling is about that confident and beautiful posture. Even if you have no plans of actually becoming a catwalk superstar, having that great posture will do wonders for your confidence and bearing. For a wonderful posture, strengthen your core. Abdominal exercises such as crunches and obliques are highly useful. Weight training is a good option as well.
- Resistance Training – These will further tone your body and will make you look fantastic on and off-camera. Perform resistance exercises for all major muscle groups but you don’t have to do them all each day. You can come up with a weekly plan of alternating workout routines with ample resting periods added in.
Through these exercises, you will soon see positive and delightful changes to your body!
Diet for a Model Body
Your glow-up challenge won’t be completed without thinking about eating the right diet and having proper hydration. Models’ bodies can be achieved by eating balanced meals and avoiding fatty and sugary food. Stay away from junk food, soda, and anything with too much refined sugar.
Avoid foods that make you feel bloated. These include meals and snacks that are rich in sodium and dairy products. Instead, include more fruits, vegetables, lean meat, healthy fats, and dairy alternatives in your diet. And even if you are not vegan, looking into vegetarian and vegan recipes for some of your daily meals won’t hurt. On top of that, be sure to drink more water each day.
Do not be tempted by fad diets and any other quick weight loss programs. Only with a steady approach will you be able to achieve your dream body and maintain it for years to come. There are also good dietary supplements (more) out there that you can use to improve what you consume.
It will be great if you learn to cook as well. This way, you will be able to manage your calory intake better and you don’t have to spend so much money on eating out.
Live a Healthy Lifestyle

Last but not the least, living a healthy lifestyle will help you get that beautiful model-like body sooner. Avoid drinking and smoking, and try not to stay out late too much that you compromise on getting enough rest. As much as possible, remove stress from your day-to-day or learn relaxation techniques. These include meditation, breathing exercises, and cultivating a positive mindset.
