Personal trainer and fitness blogger Melvfitness posted this to her Instagram account, showing exactly how easy it is to fake those "transformation" photos.
I posted this image on instagram a few days ago with the following caption. "Check out my transformation! It took me 15 minutes. Wanna know my secret? Well firstly I ditched the phone wallet (fwallet) cause that shit is lame, swapped my bather bottoms to black (cause they're a size bigger & black is slimming), Smothered on some fake tan, clipped in my hair extensions...
The differences between her "before" and "after" are drastic but actually pretty easy to do.
...stood up a bit taller, sucked in my guts, popped my hip- threw in a skinny arm, stood a bit wider #boxgap, pulled my shoulders back and added a bit of a cheeky/Im so proud of my results smile. Zoomed in on the before pic- zoomed out on the after & added a filter. Cause filters make everything awesome. What's my point? Don't be deceived by what you see in magazines & on Instagram.. You never see the dozens of other pics they took that wernt as flattering."
