Thigh gap seems to be the latest obsession women are attempting to achieve at the gym. For some it comes easily, even naturally (oh those genetics!) But for the masses, it’s not so simple.
Let’s start with the question, what is thigh gap? When a woman stands, knees touching, there is sometimes a space between her inner thighs. Keyword here—sometimes. For the lucky few, eating a healthy balanced diet, and maintaining a routine exercise plan, a thigh gap is inevitable. However, the majority of women who eat right, diet, AND exercise are still disappointed to see that, yes, their thighs will always touch. Some women simply do not have the body structure to have a natural thigh gap. For example, many women have hips close together, resulting in absolutely no space between their thighs. No amount of diet or exercise in their lifestyle will deliver them the result of a thigh gap.
It is important to set yourself realistic expectations when trying to achieve any goal, especially in regards to your body. Here are a few don’ts:
DON’T: overdo it. Do not restrict your food intake or starve yourself thinking you’ll achieve healthy and safe results.
DON’T: over-exercise. Exercising in excess is unhealthy, and can actually have reverse effects to your body goals. It is imperative to keep balance in your life to maintain a healthy physical and mental outlook.
DON’T: become obsessed. With a growing number of women wanting to achieve this look, it’s easy to fall into the pressure to look a certain way. If you feel you are becoming unhealthily obsessed, it’s okay to ask for help, as this can lead to bigger problems such as anorexia or bulimia.
However, with this massively growing number of women trying to achieve this look (and failing), it is no wonder more and more are seeking alternative plans and solutions. Here are a few things to DO when starting out:
DO: remove junk food from your diet. Junk food consists of things that are full of trans-fat, processed foods, frozen, or anything with sugar.
DO: fill up on healthy, fiber-filled, heart-healthy foods. Some great options here are foods such as pears, carrots, oranges, celery, apples, spinach, cabbage, and berries of any kind. Also, nuts and beans are full of important vitamins and minerals for your body. Lentils, black beans, almonds and pistachios aren’t only delicious, but they’ll give you an abundance of energy.
DO: incorporate “superfoods” into your lifestyle on a daily basis. Some examples of superfoods are: pomegranates, blueberries, apples, eggs, lentils, salmon, quinoa, kale, avocados, and olive oil.
After developing a healthier lifestyle, including exercise and diet, you are already feeling healthier inside, and possibly even more energized. You, yes YOU, are on the right path to achieving results. However, you might be reading this saying I’m doing all of those things, and seeing absolutely no results.
