Easy Ways to Lose the Post-Holiday Weight
posted on 1/11/2013
If all of those gourmet snacks, sugary treats and fatty foods from the holiday season have left you with a few extra inches around your waistline, the New Year can be a great time to trim the fat and lose a few pounds. Good Morning America reported that over 50 percent of Americans gain between two and ten pounds each holiday season. Unfortunately, many people don’t lose the extra fat just as quickly and may carry the holiday weight well into the New Year. Slim down and get back into shape after the holidays with some of these tips and ideas:
Dieting to Get Rid of Post-Holiday Weight
Monitoring your diet after the holidays and steering clear of extra indulgences that are left over from the holiday buffet tables will put you on the fast track for slimming down for the season. Start eliminating the excess sugar and fat from your diet, and load up on fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and other healthy foods so that you are eating a more wholesome and nutritious diet. Slowly weaning yourself off the unhealthy carbs, sugars and unhealthy fats will make it easier to stick with your diet and help you lose that post-holiday weight.
VASER Liposuction to Lose Post-Holiday Weight
If you only have a few inches of fat to lose from the waistline, buttocks, hips and thighs, you could be a good candidate for VASER liposuction. This liposuction technique breaks up the fat using ultrasonic energy before it is extracted from the body, so there is less trauma to the surrounding skin and tissues. Another benefit of VASER liposuction is that the heat from the treatment helps to tighten the skin. You’ll be left with a much more contoured and toned appearance, and the entire procedure typically takes only a few hours. If you don’t think you can get rid of the fat with diet and exercise alone, these before and after photos of VASER liposuction is proof this procedure could be the quick-fix and permanent solution you need.
Zerona to Lose Post-Holiday Weight
Zerona is an innovative cold-laser procedure that promotes the release of fat that’s stored in problem areas including the abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs. If you’re struggling with losing a few stubborn inches from various parts of the body, you may be a good candidate for this non invasive body slimming procedure. Zerona is performed on an outpatient basis and does not involve any needles or incisions. Clinical trials show that the average patient loses about 3.5 inches from the body after a series of treatments. You can expect to undergo a series of at least six treatments in order to see results, like these Zerona treatment before and after pictures of previous patients.
If you’re interested in cosmetic surgery to get rid of a few stubborn inches and excess fat after the holidays, set up a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon in your area. Your surgeon can perform a complete body analysis and determine whether you are a good candidate for liposuction or other body shaping treatments that will help to get rid of post-holiday weight gain for good.
