Sometimes diet and exercise leave your weight loss journey at a stagnant spot however, and getting a little boost from your professional dermatologist is just what you need. Why wait for the new year? Kick start your weight loss before the holidays begin with a few of these tips.
Be careful with your food intake
This is a given as it is one of our biggest problems when we start dieting. Listen to your body. Only eat when you are hungry and typically eating your three meals each day with smaller portions is the best idea. Some people find that recording their food intake helps them keep track of unnecessary calories they could be cutting. It is always advisable with a weight loss plan to avoid sugars and highly processed, refined foods. You can’t go wrong when you substitute these unhealthy choices with healthy, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean meats.
Drink plenty of water
By simply cutting soda pop and sugary drinks, you can also lose weight. Are you drinking enough water? Often the body’s response to thirst is to trigger a hunger pain. If you are feeling hungry between meals, drink water. One good rule of thumb is to take your body weight, divide it in half and drink that many ounces. The old saying of “drink eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day” is not always enough. If you are a 200 pound man, your body needs more than 64 ounces of fluids. If you are struggling the the monotony of water, try adding a squeeze of lemon.
This part can be one of the hardest parts of weight loss. It takes time, energy and dedication. Exercise does not need to be as challenging as we make it however. A brisk 30 minute walk on your lunch break, taking the stairs to your office or parking farther than normal are a few ways to get in a little extra calories burned.
Vanquish for fat reduction
Along with diet and exercise, body contouring at Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology can make a tremendous difference to your weight loss plan. If you want a way to increase the amount of fat loss, Vanquish is one of the greatest, most revolutionary tools out there to help you literally melt fat off your midsection. It is completely painless, using radio frequencies to target the fat beneath your skin, disrupt the fat cells and melt it away. Say goodbye to your belly pooch!
Exilis for body contouring
While you are working hard to shed pounds on a daily basis, body contouring helps to tighten skin as you lose weight. Similar to Vanquish, Exilis targets fat deposits in the smaller areas of your body with this handheld tool to melt away fat. If you lose weight and still find you have a double chin, Exilis can help that. Some areas of your body, no matter how many miles you run or crunches you do, you will still have fat deposits.
Ultherapy to tighten your skin
One of the unfortunate side effects of weight loss is skin sagging. The fat that was keeping your skin fuller and firmer is now gone and you are left with lifeless, dropping skin. The elasticity in your skin has worn out but there is a way to regain it with Ultherapy. This non-surgical procedure stimulates collagen production beneath the skin, perking up the area to give you tighter, firmer skin.
Cellfina for cellulite
No matter what your weight is, cellulite can plague anyone. Cellulite happens when the connective bands under the skin are pulled tight, creating dimpled skin. Cellfina works to disrupt and loosen these bands, giving you smooth skin once again so you can love your arms, legs and butt once again.
