When we hear the name “Kardashian” the first thing to come to mind is probably a collage of various images of butts. Big butts. But the notorious Kardashian sisters’ secret is out. We all know that you aren’t just genetically gifted; your doctor gave you that rear end, not nature and certainly not hard work.
First Kim Kardashian and then the younger sister Khloe Kardashian have publicly denied getting butt implants, and it is actually true that they don’t have them. Rather, they received butt injections which redeposits fat from the thighs and stomach to the butt. Semantics, really, because the result is the same and pretty obvious that those masses are not naturally occurring.
Many women envy the Kardashian sisters’ bootys, fake or not. They want curves, and they want them now! And, according to The New York Times, for about $10,000 you, too, can immediately have an end table for a back side.
We hate to burst your big booty bubble, but even surgery won’t give you the tight, toned, curvy body of your dreams. Why? It all has to do with the metabolic effects of muscle.
Increased muscle mass increases your metabolism, which is the rate at which your body burns calories. More muscle means more calorie burning which means less body fat. Want to look tight and toned and shapely all over? Get off of the treadmill and take a little trip to the squat rack.
The glutes are one of the biggest muscles in the body next to the quads and lats. Building a REAL booty will not only give you a round, shaped backside, but it will eliminate all your other “trouble zones” by decreasing your overall body fat percentage by increasing your metabolism, making your overall physique tighter and leaner. Plus, a higher metabolism means you don’t have to worry so much about the amount of food you are eating because your muscle is there to make up the difference for you. Good news if you don’t want to live on that diet tea they are always pressuring you to buy.
You have to build muscle to replace the fat. Sorry, there are no shortcuts when it comes to health and fitness. Besides, $35 a month for a gym membership is way cheaper, less risky and a whole lot more gratifying than surgery.
