Sometimes we all need a different perspective. Girls of the Instagram know a lot about the way their body looks from various angles and in different lighting because they take photos and pose in front of the mirror almost every day. So if you feel like you are working very hard and eating healthy but your body barely changes, it may not be that something’s wrong with your diet, workout program, or a supplement game. You just might need a new perspective.
