2. Sip Your Way To A Tiny Waist And Big Hips
To grow your hip faster, get yourself some protein powder.
Studies have shown that protein consumption can help you increase strength, gain muscles and lose body fat.
No… you will not transform into Arnold Schwarzenegger by drinking a protein shake.
3. Eat These Hips Enlargement Food
Again, you need to increase your consumption of protein in order to grow your hip muscles.
Some of the high protein foods I like to eat before a workout include nuts, seeds, tuna, sardines and a simple peanut butter sandwich :).
After a workout I usually drink a protein shake. But other great foods that increase hips size that you can eat after a workout include eggs, chicken, steak, milk, Greek yogurt and cottage cheese.
4. Have A Plan And Follow It
To have a killer body, you have to be consistent.
If you eat healthy and workout here and there… you will not get bigger hips.
And if you eat junk food and workout often… you will not get wider hips.
You have to be consistent.
I’m not talking about some crazy master plan here.
Simply deciding in advance how long you are willing to workout, how often, and then picking up the days of the week which you will commit to workout.
It can be as simple as saying:
“On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I will workout from 8 PM till 9 PM.”
“I will workout from Monday through Friday at 8 PM till 8:10 PM.”
Either way, if you read this far I know one thing about you… that you are serious and will achieve all your body goals.
Just give yourself some time and keep working at it!
