In an ideal world, those of us in the modeling industry would have been good boys and girls during those winter months and fully be prepared to confront Summer head-on, with perfect tone, shape and skin. The reality is, while we may not be completely camera ready, there are simple changes a model can make to ensure that he/she is in peak condition when that photo shoot comes.
It is said that we are our own worst critic, and as a professional model, you’ve got an even better idea of what photographers are looking for, so put that “skill” to some actual use! You know what aspects of your physicality are irking you, so make a “to-do” list for yourself. Don’t dwell on it, put it on paper, acknowledge it and change it! No negativity necessary, approach the list with a positive, enthusiastic outlook and put your own spin on it!
Surely, diet figures in somewhere on that list, as what a model eats influences not only body aesthetic but also the appearance of your skin, and you may have adopted some less-than-healthy habits during the holiday season. Most importantly, drink enough water. The simplest way to calculate how much water you need per day is to take your weight (in lbs.) and divide it by 2. This number is how many ounces you need per day if you do not workout, live in a hot climate, high altitude and are feeling well. So you will obviously need to consume more than that if any of those factors apply to you. Other dietary changes that will help you get swimwear model-ready are limiting sugar/refined carbs and upping your intake of fresh fruits/vegetables.
With all of the above dietary changes, you should see results in your muscle definition already but, in combination with exercise, you will reach your optimal model shape in no time. Make sure to get some quality cardio to tone all over and get rid of any fat that may be hiding anywhere. Add to that some targeted ab work and any other area you have noted as needing improvement and Voila! Within a short period of time you will have gained some positive, healthy habits and achieved the model look you desire. I’d say, “Good luck,” but we both know you are well on your way to success!!
