Instead of fixating on the scale, Hwasa opts for a healthy and targeted sculpting of specific body parts. While high-intensity dance exercises contribute to fat burning, she embraces yoga and pilates as her favourites!

Yoga promotes muscle relaxation and overall body stretching, while pilates hones in on core muscle exercises, effectively slimming the lower abdomen and thighs, and tightening the waistline.

Method #2: Homemade “Sandwich Weight Loss Method”

Pairing it with salmon, ample vegetables like tomatoes and lettuce, and adding eggs for protein, Hwasa’s single-slice sandwich proves to be a nutritious, delicious, and satisfying slimming meal!
