Non-invasive body contouring procedures can help any man or woman feel confident in their new body. While body contouring techniques like CoolSculpting and Zerona can produce incredible results, it is important to note that they are not permanent- at least not without the help of a healthy lifestyle. The key to maintaining lifelong results is to maintain a stable and healthy weight. Leading a healthier lifestyle will prolong, and in some cases even improve, the results of your procedure. Below is a list of tips that will help you maintain body contouring results.
Increase Your Water Intake
It is estimated that roughly 60% of Americans are not drinking the general suggested serving of 64oz. of water per day, . It’s important to note that the recommended eight 8 oz. per glass is just that- a recommendation. Health experts say that total body weight and overall activity level are just two factors that determine how much water you should intake on a daily basis . People who partake in high levels of activity may need as many as 13 servings of water per day! Water is essential in maintaining your new figure because it boosts your metabolism, cleanses your body of waste and toxins, and acts as an appetite suppressant. Drinking water also helps put an end on your body retaining water.
Eat Your Meals in Smaller Portions
Getting a body contouring procedure does not necessarily mean you have to stop eating all the foods that you love. However, it is in your best interest to reduce the portion size. Reducing the portion size is an easy and effective way of consuming less calories while still enjoying the foods you love. A little hack to do so is eat off of a smaller plate. Your brain sees a full plate (regardless of its size) therefore believes there is more food than there actually is.
Make Fruits and Vegetables a Bigger Part of Your Diet
The importance of unprocessed fruits and vegetables in your daily diet has been gaining exposure over the years. Nutritionists recommend the consumption of around three to five servings of both fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Eating your fruits and veggies are great because they are extremely high in antioxidants. With other beneficial properties, eating them as snacks cuts out a lot of potential fats and sugars from your diet. This is imperative when keeping your contoured figure.
Exercising is always the element of losing/maintaining weight that poses as an obstacle for many people. Though you should exercise throughout the few weeks following your contouring procedure, you should begin regular exercise as soon as your physician says it’s okay. Keep in mind that your exercise does not have to be rigorous. The extra points are already off at this point. Your body will benefit from 30 minute routines 4-5 days a week. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prevent additional weight is important when to maintain your results.
