How a Few Diet and Lifestyle Changes Can Help You Maintain Your Body Sculpting Results
Liposuction and Zerona are two of the body sculpting procedures that we offer our patients here at Center For Plastic Surgery. Although these procedures vary in how they are done, there is one main thing they have in common: helping patients to get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat. If you just underwent one of these body sculpting procedures from our office, you are faced with a dilemma in the eyes of the holidays: to treat yourself or not to treat yourself. Because the holidays are notorious for making people pack on a pound or two more than what they started with, it can be hard to know when to say no and when to indulge. Luckily, we have created a list of a few ways that you can prevent gaining back any weight after your procedure.
Eat Small Portions
You’ve heard the saying, “Your eyes are bigger than your stomach.” One of the mistakes that people make during the holidays is filling their plates up with a bunch of food. Not only does this lead to food waste in some instances but more often than not, it leads to people overstuffing themselves with food that they would have been fine consuming only half of. As a suggestion, try filling up your plate with smaller portions— this will make you feel fuller and will prevent you from indulging in too many extra calories.
Hit Up a 5K
Nothing is better than getting up dressed up as Santa or one of his reindeer and running in a race with your closest family members and friends. Plus, the added exercise will ensure that you don’t gain any additional weight this season. Look for local races that are fun for everyone of all ages— that way everyone can enjoy the fun.
Find Healthy Snacks
Even though chips, cookies, and other sweet treats may be gracing just about every holiday table, that doesn’t mean you have to eat them. Try bringing your own healthy alternatives with you before you go to a party. For instance, pack some raw almonds or carrot sticks.
