Many women today would like to be as skinny as a ballerina. Ballerinas are the most graceful performers you will see on stage. They manage to move gracefully on stage thanks to their strong but petite bodies. They are not born with these bodies. In fact, many ballerinas must work hard to maintain their petite frames. There are many requirements that ballerinas must fulfill in order to be successful. For example, they must not be shorter than 5 foot 2. They should also have a long neck and a small head to improve the gracefulness of their movements. Although you cannot change the way your skeleton is built, you can change the size of your body to get a shape that is similar to a dancers. The following tips will show you how to do it.

Before you embark on any weight loss or fitness regime, it is important that you consider your current state of health. You should therefore approach your physician to find out if you are in a good state of health. This will ensure that you do not fall victim to injuries or worsen your current condition by taking up a new diet.

Nutrition
The first step to becoming as skinny as a ballerina is to ensure that you are getting the right nutrition. You should ensure that you keep away from sugary soft drinks, junk food and other foods that are high in calories and bad fats. It is important to ensure that you are eating a healthy diet. Many people falsely believe that ballerinas are anorexic. Most ballerinas actually eat all the meals of the day and rarely skip them. They simply ensure that they eat in moderation and stay away from junk food. You should therefore formulate a healthy meal plan that ensures that you get all the nutrients you need. Avoid going on a crash diet.

Build strength
If you have ever taken a good look at a ballerina, you will notice that they have good overall body strength. They require this strength to hold the athletic poses that they do when performing. If you want to be as skinny as a ballerina you should ensure that you build up your muscles all over your body.  Building up muscle will not only help you appear toned and give you better posture, but also help you to burn more fat. Increased muscle mass will result in increased burning of fat as the increased muscles require higher levels of energy to operate. You should therefore ensure that you take some time for strength training. You do not have to go to the gym or buy any special equipment for this. You can use your body weight to build up strength in your muscles. This is something that most ballerinas do. Exercises such as squats are effective in building leg and stomach muscles.

Cardiovascular exercise
Cardiovascular exercise is necessary for weight loss. These exercises will help you burn fat and therefore lose weight and change the shape of your body. A ballerina is able to maintain her petite frame because of the high intensity exercise that she takes part in for more than 4 hours in a day. You will therefore have to increase the intensity of your exercise and the frequency you do it in.

Mental preparedness
It is important to be prepared mentally for what you will experience during the weight loss. Weight loss takes time. You will not see significant weight loss in the first few days. You may begin to see changes after several weeks. You may also find it difficult to adhere to the program. Ensure that you have goals to keep you motivated.
