How to get a tiny waist? Is it difficult? Well, it all depends on the reason why your waist isn’t tiny right now, how far you are from the goal and whether or not your body is genetically built for it.
Let’s dig into the whole ‘how to get a tiny waist’ thing, so you know what you’re dealing with.
Do You Have the Built for a Tiny Waist?
If you’re already slim and your waist isn’t as tiny as you would like, you may not have the built for a tiny waist – genetically. If you conclude that you don’t have the built for a tiny waist, please hang on! Because it’s not a complete dealbreaker. It just means that you have to do a bit extra to reach your goal.
If you’re already slim, the quickest way to a tiny waist may be to use a Waist Trainer on a daily or weekly basis. It will help you sculpt your waist, so you can cheat your genes.
If you’re carrying around a lot of excess weight, you may not be able to see, whether or not you have the natural built for a tiny waist. If that’s the case perhaps you can remember your built before you gained weight? Or you could get a hint by looking at slim family members of the same gender as you. Often we have (almost) the same built as one of our parents and siblings of the same gender.
No matter what, you should focus on getting smaller first. And then, if you find out that you don’t have the built for it, you can simply use a Waist Trainer to reach your final goal.
Is it Belly Fat or ‘Something Else’?
Excess belly fat can make your midsection look huge, but contrary to popular belief, fat is not always the cause of a huge belly. Often it’s ‘other things’. Or a combination of fat and ‘other things’. So what’s the ‘other things’?
Constipation and old stool can be a problem. Actually a person can carry around several kilos of ‘old stuff’ in there. It will fill your belly up from the inside, literally, and it will sabotage your goal of getting a tiny waist. If you don’t visit the toilet at least 1-2 times daily, you have a problem. And even if you do go to the toilet regularly, you may still have a slow transit or incomplete bowel emptying.
If constipation is a problem for you, you can take a 10 day intensive colon cleanse. It will help you cleanse your system and get rid of old stool. Afterwards you may need to change your diet, so the problem doesn’t come back. Perhaps you’re eating too much dairy or red meat? Or just too much in general? Or too little fibers and plant-based foods? Or perhaps you’re not drinking enough water?
Gas and bloating can also be a problem. It weighs nothing, but it can really make your midsection look huge. Like a big balloon just waiting to burst. It can be quite uncomfortable – even painful. To get some relief, you can use activated charcoal to get rid of gas and bloating in a natural way. You should also take a look at your diet: what’s causing all this gas and bloating? You may have some allergies or intolerances. Or perhaps you have a yeast imbalance, caused by consuming too much bread, sugar, alcohol or fermented foods?
And talking about yeast imbalances: candida overgrowth in the gut can cause all of the above digestive issues. If candida overgrowth is the problem you’re likely to also be plagued by vaginal, rectal or urinary infections and itching. If that’s the case, you should focus on getting your candida levels back on track.
Nah, it’s Just Fat…
If you’re not constipated or bloated (or pregnant!) it’s probably ‘just’ excess belly fat. So how do you get rid of that? Generally speaking it’s not possible to target weight loss to specific areas of the body. You have to lose fat in general. But there are a few exceptions.
Stress – both internally and externally – is known to favor the midsection for fat storage. So lowering your stress levels can very well be a big help for you. Perhaps it can even be the solution.
Internal stress comes from within. It may be caused by having negative thoughts and feelings, not getting enough sleep, being overweight, having an infection, having a poor overall health etc.
External stress comes from outside of you. It may be caused by being in a bad working environment, having problems paying your bills, arguing with loved ones, being surrounded by noise or clutter etc.
So lowering your stress levels means: getting enough quality sleep, thinking positive thoughts, taking more breaks, spending more time with good friends, getting rid of your clutter, drinking less caffeine etc. For some this will be a complete ‘clean up your life project’. For others a few adjustments.
What you need to know is that many people actually lose a lot of belly fat, just by lowering their stress levels!
If you decide to go on a diet and lose fat in general, you can get some extra help with a belly targeted weight loss supplement.
What About Exercise?
When you read advice on how to get a tiny waist, you’ll often encounter the word ‘crunches’. But contrary to popular belief, doing a bunch of crunches every day, will not automatically give you a tiny waist. And why is that?
Doing crunches makes your muscles in your midsection bigger and tighter. That’s great for everything you’re carrying on the inside – like your organs and intestines. It will help you keep ‘everything in place’ so to say, and that’s great if you’re already slim. But it’ll not do anything for everything you’re carrying on the outside – like belly fat. Actually many overweight people already have great abdominal muscles, they just can’t see them!
So basically you only need to train your abs if you’re already slim and want a stronger and tighter waist. Overweight people can choose to do it for health reasons, but it’s not gonna be visible until the belly fat is gone. Just so you know.
And if you’re a woman and want a really narrow waist, you should avoid doing too much exercise for the muscles on the sides. Remember: muscles grows bigger, not smaller! So yes, you’ll feel tighter on the sides, but also end up looking wider. If you’ve already made the mistake of training your waist too wide the solution is simple: stop training that area.
