Tips for getting fit and staying slim

| April 28, 2010 9:00 PM

It's easy to over-indulge in the rich foods that feel comforting and warm during the cold winter months. It's hard to put down the cookies and step away from the cream sauces, but it's even more difficult to reverse those extra inches and pounds you've gained.

One important key to slimming down is to be more active. Balance balls are a great way to tone your core muscles, like the all-important abdominals, without impact that can cause damage now or down the road. For a safe workout, it's important to use an anti-burst balance ball that is appropriate for your height - they typically range in size from 55 cm to 85 cm.

While you're working toward your goal, a body shaper can help you regain the silhouette you're striving to get back to. There are numerous options for body shapers for women and men, many of which are virtually undetectable under your everyday clothes.

To encourage yourself to keep going toward your goal of slimming down, it's important to track your progress. A worthwhile investment is a small, portable body fat analyzer that can give you an analysis in about five seconds.

Once you're on the road to a slimmer you this year, you'll feel more energetic and happier than ever.

Shedding pounds isn't just important for your self-esteem; it's good for your health. For more information on slimming aids, go to
