Once you’ve healed up from lipo, you will want to make choices that will reduce the risk of adding additional fat back onto your body. Below are several suggestions to reduce your risk of gaining back the weight.
Start With Water
Add cold water to your daily routine
- as soon as you get up, to stay on top of your body mass index
- before every meal, to reduce hunger
- instead of drinks with empty calories
- in place of diet drinks that may fire up your taste buds for something more filling
Once fat cells are removed, they don’t come back. To make sure that you’re burning off the food that you consume, do your best to find and stick with an exercise routine that fits your schedule and that you will enjoy. Hating your exercise routine will make it less likely that you will continue it.
Exercise can be a great way to get some time alone or socialize, depending on your personal preference. In addition, moving your body through space is an ideal way to lower your stress levels.
What did you do before lipo when you were stressed out? Did you eat to comfort yourself, or drink alcohol to forget your troubles? Maybe you chose to watch a movie or connect with a friend for a brain-dump of a conversation.
Stress hormones such as cortisol are a sign to your body that you may be at risk or in danger. This stress level can actually cause your body to hold onto calories and make it harder to lose fat. A simple meditation routine or gratitude practice can be done in just a few minutes a day and reduce your stress levels.
Say Yes To A Great Diet
Water, fiber, healthy proteins, fresh vegetables and fruits and whole grains instead of processed grains can greatly improve your overall health and make it easier to keep the weight off. Every plateful is a chance to recommit to a healthy diet.
Consider Lipo A Chance To Start Over
Undergoing lipo is a great way to restart some portions of your life. If self-care has been impossible due to your schedule or workload, consider hiring some help or letting some responsibilities fall by the wayside. You have made a healthy choice for your body and your body image. Build on that absolute cosmetic investment and commit to the healthiest life you can live.
You are on a journey toward a healthier, happier life. Choose your lipo as a restart toward a slim, strong future.
