If you’re a naturally skinny woman with naturally narrower hips, you might be wondering if it is possible to get bigger hips.
There are steps you can take to make your hips look bigger. Significant deposits of body fat anywhere are unhealthy.
Remember that being healthy is far more important than looking like a celebrity. Exercising the muscles of your upper, middle and lower body along with eating a healthy diet, will have you looking and feeling your best.
Here are some natural practices you should start doing if you want wider hips.
Eat more protein and fats
Healthy fats like coconuts, avocado, olive and almond oil and so on help to regulate the hormones and increase estrogen levels in the body.
Hormone regulation plays a key role in giving you that rounder figure you desire. Also, it is important to eat protein-rich foods like beans, lentils, yoghurts and more to help in building and maintaining muscle in the desired areas.
Track your macronutrients intake
Macronutrients are a large amount of nutrients that living beings need to ingest for growth and development. The seven major macronutrients are carbohydrates, fats, protein, fibre, minerals, vitamins, and water.
It is important to track this because it would help you determine the quantities you need to eat for your desired figure. You can use a macronutrient calculator to figure out how many calories you should be eating to reach your goals.
Most women tend to do only squats when they are trying to get a rounder figure. In order to increase your hip circumference, you need to do a wide range of glute exercises. Squats are good, but they are not good enough. Try exercises like glute bridges, lunges, reverse planking, standing leg raises, high kicks amongst others.
It is important to do these exercises at least two times a week in order to see some level of improvement.
The more we sit, the less your glute muscles are engaged. If you work in an office, try to perform some of your tasks standing or in motion.
In order to see ample change, you need to keep your glute muscles engaged and constant sitting does not help.
