    What is the most effective way to get the body you desire and see on the tv?!

    Is it dieting and healthy eating, regular work outs in the gym!!

    What do you think??

      Regular exercise (3-4 times a week is good enough), healthy diet (green vegetables a must), small meals at regular intervals and a very very light dinner. Besides, don't eat anything after 8 p.m. smile

      Yes, of course and obviously. All of the above. Add not drinking sodas or eating refined sugar of any kind in there and 20 minutes of cardio a day and you're well on your way.

      Keep in mind, however, that TV adds about 30 pounds to everybody. The people you see on there with "perfect" bodies are skinny little freaks in real life.

      Additionally, please also note that only a certain body type is shown or idealized on TV. Reality is different and the key is to figure out what YOUR ideal weight and fitness goals are, based on your body type.

      Good luck and stick with it! smile

      I think it is a combination of healthy diet and exercise. You don't have to be agym rat or anything, you just got to stay active.

    I don't think you need to go to a gym to workout.  But exercises that will either tone muscle or build muscle combined with a proper diet will help.  It all depends on where you are now... If you are overweight then you need to consume less calories than your bodies daily needs, just the oposite if you are underweight.

    I'd say anjalichugh hit it right on the nose.
    I'd like to add you want to include some type of weight lifting regimen for resistance training, strengthening bones, and losing body fat.

    This is the exercise program that I use.  It is a tough program but it is doing wonders.  I've lost nearly 15 pounds and toned muscle in roughly 3 weeks and I've just barely started getting up to speed with it... http://hubpages.com/hub/the-p90x-system

    I use a Bowflex, forty-five minutes every other day. Walk my dogs 2 miles around the park daily, and then another fast paced walk on my own for 3 miles. I have lost 27 pounds. II am happy with my body, but at 55 years old, I need some tone on my sagging face....

      Way to go HelthCare.  I'm 40 and recently diabetic. With the P90X program that I am on, I haven't felt better since I got out of the Army 19 years ago.

        That is great Richard. Keep up the exercise and the diabetes should certainly stay in check. I heard about the PX90. I should check that out as I get bored just doing Bowflex.

    anaerobic excercise has been found to be the best...I hope i am using the right word lol!!!  But it is like fast walking or riding a bike.  It is better for the body than running.  Running burns more calories but it is has a damaging effect also. Also, unlike running, once you stop walking you continue to burn calories, whereas in running as soon as you stop running you stop burning calories.

      Also seems to be easyer to start a bike program than running.

    P90x does seem cool. The chin-ups are the hardest for me. trying to find strengthening exercises you can also do without apparatuses

    You have to do an aerobic activity like walking say 5 days a week(half hour)and some kind of weight training at home or the gym 3 times a week. The aerobics burn the fat and the weights sculpt and give your body a whole new dimension. When I started weights, my body changed beyond belief, and that is how it all is done lol. I went from a size 8 to a 6. The good thing about weights is it speeds up your metabolism so even when you are sleeping you are burning fuel. Also for people who are getting older, the bones and muscle slowly decreases a percentage every year of age, but my doing some kind of weights you can avoid that happening

    I walk for two hours a day about five times a week, but I am by no means a small person.  I am very toned, but I have no desire to look like other people's definition of fit.  I like to look like me and flaunt all the rules smile.

    That's it. What is the perfect body anyway. Marilyn Munroe was a size 14yet considered to be perfect by many. Some people with a larger bone structure can not possibly expect to look the same as someone who who has a small frame. If you feel good about yourself, no matter how thin or big you are, then that is what it truly is all about

    I have been looking for a celebrity look-a-like for you Sweetie, and think I may have nailed one for my Hub. You are a stunner inside and out smile smile smile As I always say the best cosmetic a woman can wear on her face is a smile, gulp I just realised I am not smiling on mine, but here at home I am lol even though it is 6.00am and I have not gone to bed yet.Ding my alarm just went off anyway, so excuse me folks if I am making spelling errors here.
