How to overcome:

Obviously, setting a realistic goal to take the place of unrealistic one is a must. You just need to follow my guide:

Step 1: Determine your body type:

Don’t set your weight loss gold based on the gold of other people especially models on TV and magazine. That just pushes you to disappointment faster. You are curvier, more muscular or taller even having bone mass than others can create the difference in the total weight.

According to Somatotype theory, there are 3 kinds:

  • Ectomorph: the body is linear, tall, and fragile
  • Mesomorph: the body is angular, muscular and athletic.
