I want to change my body shape
A girl’s body shape is typically driven by genetics. Take a look at your mom and other female family members. Then take a peek at dad’s side of the fam. Chances are you’ll inherit characteristics from them.
However, one of the key factors in the way your body shape manifests itself is your weight. We tend to hold onto pudge in different areas in our body. One girl might have more of an hourglass figure because her body fat is evenly distributed, while another chica could have an apple shape because her weight settles around her middle.
Now listen, babe: There’s nothing you can do to influence where your body stores body fat (or where it’s easiest for you to build muscle bulk or tone, for that matter). That’s all about genetics. However, if you do have weight you could lose and still maintain a healthy bod, your shape just might change. But that’s a pretty big “might.” When considering altering your lifestyle to gain or lose weight, you really need to talk to a doctor and a nutritionist so you can do it in a healthy, responsible way.
