Summer is a hot time to undertake body contouring goals, especially this summer! Now that the warm weather has hit and our shorts and bathing suits have come out of storage, many of us have been alarmed by how much tighter our summer clothes are fitting after a spring of sheltering in place. If you’re one of the thousands determined to regain your best body, we’ve got great news for you: You can do it, and every little step counts!
To help you achieve your goals this summer and beyond, we’ve compiled some of our best tips and tricks for fat reduction and toning.
Stop “Shoulding” Yourself
Lots of people love to tell you the right way to exercise or eat, and how you “should” do this or that to achieve your goals, but beware of the “shoulds” because they can sabotage your best efforts by undermining your confidence and motivation. For example, a popular “should” we’ve all heard is “You should always eat breakfast if you want to lose weight because it kick starts your metabolism.” This “should” is actually a myth. Recent research indicates that prolonging the time between your meals can help your body by decreasing inflammation, which in turn promotes better overall health. Another study found that people who skipped breakfast ate a bigger lunch but ended up eating 400 fewer calories in the day. So, the bottom line is eat a healthy breakfast if you’re hungry and wait to eat if you’re not.
Don’t Be Stubborn About Asking For Help
You can’t control everything. You may eat a well-balanced and healthy diet full of green, leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and lean proteins, avoiding processed foods and sugar. If you do all that, our hats are off to you because a healthy diet benefits your body and complexion in so many amazing and wonderful ways! All those fresh fruits and vegetables are loaded with antioxidants, fending off free radicals while lowering your inflammation and stress levels and reducing your risk for disease. But that’s another blog! Back to body contouring: You may exercise regularly and lift weights, too. You may do everything “right” but still struggle with unwanted pockets of fat. While it’s frustrating, we want you to remember that it’s totally normal to have a “problem spot” your entire life. It’s part of what makes you human! Problem spots are NOT your fault, and they are the reason CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® were invented. Do your best and then let us help you get over the finish line with our non-invasive body contouring technologies. That’s what we are here for!
Conversely, some people think our treatments are a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, and there’s nothing further from the truth. Our treatments work best in combination with a healthy diet and exercise regimen. In other words, you’ll get your best results and maintain your results by adopting a combination approach that includes your best efforts and ours.
