If people buy into “model” images in fashion magazines, then ultra-thin is the ideal body type. But if emaciated skinny is the look a woman is striving for, then she is likely headed in an unhealthy direction.
Going gaunt for guys is the same detrimental journey although, comparatively, more male models project strong, toned body types. It’s a contradiction in body images. To further illustrate this conflicting “model” example, a study in the UK showed that female mannequins used to model clothes in stores were underweight human sizes . . . but not the male mannequins. This represents another good reason not to buy into unhealthy body types.
The fact of the matter is that a person can be thin but not necessarily fit or healthy. At the same time, people can be overweight for their height and physiology due to their musculature but fit and healthy overall. Fit is the new thin, the idea being to focus more on health and fitness than on the number that pops up on a scale. This is a goal that can lead people in a healthy and successful direction.
A Fit Way to Manage Weight
In making an attempt to get rid of pounds that you no longer want to carry around, the most important thing to remember is that you have to burn more calories than you consume. Eating large amounts of high-quality, nutrient-rich, plant-based food fills you up with natural fiber but without high calories or fat. Making this one lifestyle change will make a huge difference in becoming lighter and fitter, not to mention, healthier.
Exercise Your Weight
Moving to better food and moving physically are a win-win weight-loss combination for fitness. Even a little exercise goes a long way. If you are a newbie, ease your way into walking, swimming, etc. to give your body a chance to slowly adapt. Get addicted to your exercise routine, to the point that you crave it. You are actually capable of craving exercise instead of ice cream. It all begins with a decision to make a change.
AIMing for Fit Is the New Thin
Supplements have often been associated with exercise and weight loss. Just like any lifestyle change, making the right choices that help not hinder you are important to your physical goals. AIM has a lot of right choices.
It’s in the name. Fiber helps to make you fit by contributing to your weight loss goals. It reduces your calorie intake by making your stomach feel full: fiber swells up as it absorbs liquids, taking up more space in the gastrointestinal tract. Supplementing with fit ’n fiber not only increases the “feeling full” factor, it provides prebiotic food for the friendly bacteria in your microbiome.
Pea protein is an ideal, plant-based supplement for contributing to lean musculature. One serving of ProPeas gives you 12 grams of protein that takes around four hours to fully digest, so, like fiber, you feel full for longer periods of time. And each serving is only 60 calories, which contributes to the “burning more calories than you consume” goal for losing weight.
Available as individual products, fit’ n fiber and ProPeas can also be purchased in product combinations: Weight Loss (USA and Canada), Lean Team (USA only) and CoCoa Smoothie Pack (USA only). The Weight Loss combo also includes GlucoChrom, which enhances the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
On a final note, supplementing your plant-based food intake with a variety of choices in AIM greens adds so many easily absorbed nutrients without a lot of calories. For example, a serving of BarleyLife is only 15 calories. When it comes to nutritional support for your “Fit Is the New Thin” journey, AIM is on your side.
