If a size 6 is your preferred dress size, and you are researching tips on how to be a size 6, this hub will help you in your quest.

An American dress size 6 is attractive because it is thin but not emaciating. It is a size that is attainable by most women because you can have a medium to large-boned frame and still attain this size.

The healthy-looking Khloe Kardashian is a dress size 6, for example. Please note that it is important to consult a doctor before taking up any health regimen.

How to be a Size 6 - Techniques

  • Buy a pair of size 6 jeans. As you begin and continue on your weight loss journey, once a week try on the jeans until they fit. Jeans are a good way to determine your actual size because they hug your body, especially in the fat-storing areas.

  • Take up strength training. This is the only form of exercise that will truly change your shape. It is the most powerful form of weight control because working out your muscles alters the composition of how much fat is stored on each area you workout. Muscle also burns fat 24/7, while fat lies mostly dormant. Strength training also gives you appetite control because it regulates blood sugar. Do 30-minute strength training sessions four times a week. Workout your upper body and abs the first and third day of the week, and your lower body the second and fourth day of the week.

  • Eat a balanced diet and do not go under 1500 calories a day. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetable salads, and lean meat. You might find that your strength training makes you crave protein as well.

  • Hang around thin people. No joke. You are likely to be encouraged by your environment no matter how old you are. If your peers are thin, you will begin to form habits to make yourself more like your peers.

  • Walk 45 minutes a day, three days a week. You do not have to walk briskly, but keep moving. You can walk on a treadmill or outside. The point is to get your body moving and to get used to longer periods of activity. Making your walking enjoyable will help ensure that you keep doing it.

  • Eat a small bowl of non-sugary cereal with fruit for breakfast - like Cheerios or corn flakes. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition noted that this kind of breakfast indicated a person was likely to be thin and had a more varied, balanced diet.

  • Replace your tendency to overeat with a hobby that gives you enjoyment and great personal satisfaction. Maybe it is gardening, sewing, or learning how to play an instrument. If you have a talent that relaxes you and makes you feel special, you are less likely to look for food to give you that boost.

  • Stay out of restaurants of any kind. Restaurants serve you sometimes twice what you would feed yourself at home. If you must go to a restaurant, order a grilled chicken sandwich or a salad with lean meat and dressing on the side. Self-control is involved.

  • If you find on your journey towards size six that your face is looking too gaunt, then chances are you should not go down any more dress sizes. Some women will look perfect at a size 8 or 10. You will be able to gauge this for yourself.
