1. Posture is everything

Your Mom and school teacher were right – bad posture harms your back and joints and most importantly, isn’t attractive.  A Simple way to look slimmer is to follow a trick Oprah showcased which is to stand or sit with your arms hanging by your side. Bend your elbows and bring your hands up in front of you at a ninety degree angle with your palms facing upwards. Maintain that angle and turn both your arms to each side of you. You’ll notice immediately that this movement pulls your shoulders back, lifts the chest and pulls in your tummy because what it’s doing is automatically correcting your posture! The way that your body aligns when both your arms are at your side at that angle is your natural alignment and will immediately make you look slimmer. Pretty nifty trick, no? It impressed Oprah, anyway!
