Shakira lost 30 pounds and weighs about 105lbs now, so you’d only have 20 pounds to lose…but don’t do it if you’re under 21 or you could stunt your growth and end up as short as she is (she has to wear huge platform shoes).
If you’re older than 21, losing 20 pounds of fat reserves would mean exercising for 70,000 calories (3,500 calories for each pound of fat reserves)…and it would take like 200 days at a daily average of 350 calories or exercising.
You want a body like Shakira but Shakira wants a body like someone else, with slimmer hips and smaller butt, taller with longer legs and even straighter hair and she has a lot of body image insecurities and hating what she sees in a mirror. She’s in therapy to deal with it and hopefully her therapist can tell her that some people, like you, want to look like her.
Being 5’2 is a normal average height for a Columbian woman, but once you’re in the US and famous, suddenly, you’re shorter than everybody else. You meet a 5’9 famous top model wearing high heels that makes her 6’5 tall and you feel like a dwarf.
I’m 5’5 (120lbs) and French. I have an average height in France and it was never an issue there. In the US, not wearing heels, I’m taller that all my American friends, especially the chubby ones with weight problems who stunted their growth while going on low calorie diets in their teenage years.
Then I go to Holland and I feel like a troll because everybody is tall and blond but they think I’m cute because I’m so tiny. Then in Asia, I’d be a giant among women who are lighter than 100lbs even when all dressed up with their shoes on and carrying a bag!
Shakira is very muscular. Working out is one way for her to deal with her body insecurities. She does aerobics every day (dancing, walk/jogging…) and weight training every few days to allow for rest days for her muscle to repair stronger (obviously…you can see that she has huge muscle mass).
She does not eat saturated fats and eat mostly fish and veggies.
Once you get a therapist, a nutritionist, a dietician and a cook, you can have Shakira’s body, because she does not want it anyway so she might as well give it to you…haha!
