A size 4 by American standards is a small dress size. The average American woman is a size 12 but can often achieve a size 4 with proper changes and helpful supplements and tools.
While the biological process of homeostasis has a lot to do with what dress size you wear, it is by far not the only process that determines what dress size you can achieve.
While statistics show 70% of women are consistently trying to lose weight through diet and exercise, but aren't getting the results they want. This is where added tools come in handy to help propel them to success.
Who will get to a size 4 most easily?
- It will be easiest for those women who at some point in their lives were a size 12 or less -- even if they were in their teens when it happened. Though you can get down to a 4 if your smallest size has been above an 12, that it is easiest to lose two to four dress sizes or less from the smallest point you have ever been. This is because your body will be in less homeostatic shock from the change and have a higher likelihood of being able to maintain the change.
- Women who are small-framed (also known as small-boned). If your index finger and thumb overlap when they are around your wrist, you are small-boned. Small-framed people have an easier time of getting to a size 4 because their bones, muscles, and organs require less space than medium and large-framed people.
So how can you do this? ...
- Incorporate modern technology that motivates your fitness routine.
- Add a safe, effective, natural supplement that reduces your appetite.

Since 70% of women are trying to lose weight at any given time, it isn't that they don't know how to exercise, it's that they don't get the motivation to move as consistently as needed. There is an easy solution to this.
- Use an activity tracker. The reason they have become so popular is that people get addicted to seeing their progress. For example, if you are trying to achieve 10,000 steps a day for walking, watching the counter go up on your Vivofit is going to motivate you to keep moving. So basically, you get repeated positive feedback with every step you take, which makes you want to keep on going, and this is what aids in whittling you down to a smaller dress size.
- In addition, you can set your tracker for a desired activity level in case you need to work off an extra dessert. For example, this model has a move bar with an audible alert, which reminds you to stay active throughout the day by displaying a red move bar and sounding an alert after one hour of inactivity.
- You can use this tracker to motivate you even if you have a sedentary job or sit in a classroom much of the day for school. As you walk as much as you can from place to place, the tool counting those needed steps for you and keeps you motivated to walk some more. If you are a homemaker, you can likewise track steps as you work on gardening, walk around the kitchen, and keep up on cleaning. This will keep you more active as you see and enjoy your progress.

In fact, women who have the hormonal syndrome PCOS like this supplement as well because it helps bring their reproductive hormones into balance, which are unbalanced to begin with partially from a poor diet. Maca is also high in calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids and is helpful with skin and hair health too.
- The most effective way to take maca is to open a capsule, place the powder from the capsule on your tongue, and swish it around in your mouth with water before swallowing.
