If you’re a woman who feels like you’re living in a ‘fat loss world’ when all you really want to do is build some curves to your body, you’re going to need to learn how to approach your workout and diet programme.

Go for strength training over cardio
The very first thing that you should be doing to help add more curves to your body is focusing more of your energy on strength training as opposed to cardio workouts.
While cardio training is good for heart health, it won’t change the way your body looks. Strength training is what will add curves in all the right places.
Start eating more at meal time
Next, you’ll also want to make a note to start eating a bit more food at each of your main meals. In order to fill out, you have to feed your body more calories than it burns off over the course of the day because it’s this fuel that it will use to generate lean muscle tissue with. Aim to add about 200 calories per day to your diet or 10 per cent of your total calorie intake. This is as simple as adding another serving of oatmeal in the morning and having a banana with your lunch.
Don’t neglect rest
Rest is critical to success because it’s when you’re resting that your body will be rebuilding back its broken-down muscle fibers, allowing you to get stronger. Some women overdo it with the workout side of things thinking this will help keep them leaner, but really they’re just damaging their progress in doing so.
Pick up heavier weights

If you want to see greater increases in muscle tone and definition, you need to give the body a reason to change. If you’re lifting the same weight that you’ve comfortably been using for the last three weeks, what reason are you giving it? You aren’t.
Challenge yourself — you might be surprised at what you can accomplish.
So if you want to completely change your body, adding more attractive curves and filling out your thin frame, make sure that you follow these steps to success.
For the ladies out there who are interested in improving their physique and developing a more feminine appearance, one thing that you’ll want to be sure you’re doing is performing some good cleavage-boosting exercises.
Many women make the mistake of avoiding all chest work entirely because they believe this will just cause them to develop a very muscular chest, reducing the softness of that region and decreasing the amount of cleavage they show.
This isn’t the case. The primary reason some women appear to look flat-chested after performing chest workouts is simply that they’re taking their body fat level too low, which is then causing them to lose breast tissue. Since the breasts are primarily made up of fatty tissue, any time weight loss is seen, this is going to be an issue.
As long as you maintain your body fat levels in a healthy range, you should have no problem creating the cleavage look you’re after while keeping chest workouts in the picture.
