Maintaining Your Results After Liposuction
Liposuction is an excellent way to reduce stubborn fat. With many advancements in technology, there now are many ways to achieve fantastic results! But fat cells are something the body continues to produce, so if you don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle after liposuction, you could sabotage your results. Fortunately, there are some easy ways to maintain your new figure! Read on to learn more about ways to maintain your liposuction results.
Eat Healthy Carbs
There is too much material floating around shaming carbohydrates. Yes, excessive intake of pasta, bread, and sweet cakes aren’t good for your health, but that doesn’t mean skipping out on carbs altogether. What your body needs is a balance of healthy carbs to give you energy. Focus on nutrient-dense foods that are high in fiber. Slow releasing, they keep you satisfied longer helping to reduce the desire to snack on unhealthy foods because they are convenient. If you are looking for ways to add healthy carbs to your diet, you can start by swapping white pasta and bread for whole grain. Barely, peas, acorn squash, and beans are fantastic options for adding healthy carbs into your meals.
Admittedly, we too wish there was a way around it, but there isn’t. If you want to maintain your new figure, you’re going to have to exercise. You don’t need to take up marathon training or lifting heavy weights if that’s not what you’re in to, but finding a way to increase your heart rate for at least thirty minutes a day is optimal to maintain your results. Your exercise could be in the form of walking outside or on a treadmill, running, yoga, dancing, or CrossFit. Ideally, you’ll want to pick something that interests you because it’s something you because you are ultimately looking for a lifestyle change rather than a quick fix!
Increase Water Intake
Water consumption is incredibly beneficial for the body and for keeping your lipo results! By drinking several glasses a day, you are providing your body with the necessary tools to flush out toxins. If too many toxins start to store, you are looking at an increase in fat cell production. Water is also an excellent and organic way to satiate hunger. We aren’t trying to say skip meals, but we often confuse hunger pains for thirst and omit drinking liquids altogether. Ideally, if you are beginning to feel “hungry” but you know you’ve had a good sized meal within the last one to two hours, try drinking water to see if it relieves the symptoms before indulging in a snack.
Don’t Skip Meals
Speaking of not skipping meals, eating is critical to keep your liposuction results long after you’ve had your procedure. When you don’t eat breakfast, skip lunch, or go to bed without dinner, you are putting your body under unnecessary stress. The first thing that happens is your blood sugar takes a dive. The organic and natural sugars found in fruits and veggies are precisely what the body needs for energy. By removing these options from your diet, your metabolism starts to slow down because your primal brain thinks you are going through a famine and will store fat for survival. The first place the body will store fat is around the midsection to protect vital organs, and if you’ve recently had liposuction, it’s more than likely this is the area where you had it removed.
