5 Incredible Booty Boosters!

Is it just me or does everyone seem to be obsessed with butts these days? Thanks to celebs like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, big booties have been getting a lot of media spotlight. Achieving a beautiful behind takes more than just exercise. Try these five tips to help give your booty a makeover. When all else fails, there’s always the Skinnygirl booty booster!

1. Avoid Certain Foods
You should modify your diet to avoid gut-busting food, which will make your butt more prominent. In other words: Stay away from simple carbohydrates. Refined and processed carbs, like white bread, French fries, refined-grain pasta and sugary drinks are a recipe for pudginess.

2. Give Dry Brushing a Try
It helps stimulate blood and lymph flow in the body and effectively opens up the pores on your skin. This is something you can and should be doing daily, even twice a day. Your skin should be dry, so the ideal time is in the shower before you turn on the water. Just a reminder, don’t get the brush wet. Body brushing promotes tighter skin, cell renewal and blood flow.

3. Consume Omega 3s
There is some evidence that consuming enough Omega-3 fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins will help reduce cellulite over time, and give you a smoother butt.

4. Add Squats to Your Workout
Stand with feet parallel and shoulder-width apart. Slowly lower your hips, making sure not to let your knees go past your toes. A great variation for beginners is ball squats: Standing with your back to a wall, put an exercise ball between your low back and the wall, then squat, keeping your feet out in front on you.

5. Up Your Protein Intake
You can tweak your butt to make it look better on you with modifications to your diet. Add more protein to your diet. Look for proteins that have a complete set of essential amino acids, like meat, poultry, fish, milk, eggs, and cheese. These whole proteins help build muscle, which, besides fat, makes up a great portion of your butt. Protein in your diet synergizes with muscle-building exercises that target your glutes.
