The holidays are around the corner and packing on the pounds is easy with delicious holiday treats. But don’t worry; we have three simple tips that can help you manage your waistline and feel your best for the festivities.
For starters, it’s important to keep in mind that losing weight is a great achievement, because it’s about more than just exercise; healthy weight loss comes with changes in lifestyle, perseverance, and ambition. However, there can also be a downside. Many people who shed a lot of weight get confronted with a second situation, and for some, it can be just as bad as having the extra pounds they’ve just lost. We’re talking about the stubborn loose skin, flabby arms, hanging abdomen, and overall unevenness to your newly shaped body.
If this is something you find yourself struggling with, we can help. Here are a few tips and tricks that you can do to improve the look of stubborn belly fat and firm up sagging skin so that you really start enjoying your new body in time for the holiday season.
Extreme dieting in a short period of time may lead to rapid weight loss, but it can also be dangerous because you’re not providing your body with the nutrients it needs to function properly. In fact, crash dieting can actually slow down your metabolism, causing you to gain weight even faster after the diet. The true secret to weight loss is to eat smarter. Simple steps like cooking your own meals, keeping a food journal, drinking more water, and being more mindful of what you’re eating can be much more impactful when it comes to weight loss. Simply put, you don’t have to eat less when you eat healthily and stay hydrated.
A regular workout routine is ideal for helping to burn fat and put on some muscle in a healthy way. Not only will you continue to lose weight, but your body will look healthier and more toned, making you feel your best (especially once you start seeing the results). The trick is to combine cardio exercises with strength training. If you lack motivation to get up and start moving, consider working out with a friend. The social aspect will help to make exercise more fun and less of a chore. What better time to start than the onset of a New Year?
Now that you’ve shed all that excess weight, what can you do about the sagging skin that’s been left behind? One of the most efficient ways to tighten skin and tone up after weight loss is with a comfortable skin tightening treatment, like with Venus Freeze Plus™. It combines Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to boost collagen and elastin fibers, which results in firmer, smoother skin that looks noticeably more toned. Treatments are painless with no downtime, so you can enjoy the holidays in all their glory!
