#3 – Light exercise tone muscles
As you get rid of excess fats, the muscles and skin will most likely sag. Which is why performing light exercise is a must. It is not only to facilitate weight loss, but also to make sure that the remaining muscles and skin will be tight and intact.
Exercising would lead to a beautifully looking anorexic body. As we all know, people with anorexia have sag skin and prominent bones. With exercise, you’ll be able to lose fat while improving the structure of your muscles. (9, 10)
#4 – The power of water
Water plays a powerful role in your journey to becoming anorexic. Drink as much water as you can to keep your body hydrated. The tissues need to be hydrated so that they will be able to perform the way they supposed too.
A well-hydrated body keeps the skin moisturized. When the excess fats are gone, you will see your skin glowing because the tissues are adequately hydrated. (2, 4)
#5 – Give yourself a break
Becoming anorexic is not only mentally torturing. It is also physically exhausting. Just imagine, you can no longer eat the foods you used to enjoy. Your calorie intake is reduced dramatically. Hence, it is important to give your body ample time to rest and relax.
As much as possible, you should get plenty of sleep. Avoid stressful situations. Do not be too hard on yourself. You deserve a break. (1, 4, 6, 8)
