How to Hang on to Your Coolsculpting Results
The permanent destruction of fat cells sounds like a dream come true for many men and women. With CoolSculpting, it can be a reality. CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that uses cryolipolysis technology to destroy fat cells while leaving other tissues alone. During the next few weeks, your body naturally gets rid of the dead fat cells. Once fat cells are destroyed, your body can’t regenerate them. However, it’s still possible to regain fat in the treated areas, since the remaining fat cells can become larger. Healthy lifestyle choices will let you maintain your CoolSculpting results for a lifetime.
Stay aware of your body and its changes.
Body awareness is something you can practice. Some CoolSculpting patients like to weigh themselves regularly to make sure they aren’t slipping with their meal plans. Remember that a small fluctuation in weight is normal. If your scale reveals that you’ve suddenly gained two pounds overnight, it’s due to water weight, not fat. Practice mindfulness while enjoying meals too. People who eat in a distraction-free environment are less likely to overeat. Some fitness enthusiasts also swear by yoga for developing greater body awareness.
Embrace an active lifestyle.
As a general rule of thumb, most adults should try to exercise for at least 30 minutes at least five days per week, plus a couple of strength training sessions during the week. But even if you exercise regularly, it won’t do much good if the rest of your day is spent sitting down. Try to work more physical activity into your entire day. Do chair exercises at your desk, walk to a park on your lunch break, or challenge the neighborhood kids to shoot some hoops with you.
Kick the sugar habit.
Some nutrition experts argue that too much sugar can be even worse than too much fat in your diet. Sugar can even cause changes in the brain, making you crave even more sugar. Avoid foods with added sugar, and instead, satisfy your sweet tooth with fresh fruit. Your waistline will thank you.
