6 Ways to Keep Your Liposuction Results During the Holiday Season
The holiday season is nearly here, bringing all those wonderful feasts and activities that can pack on the pounds. If you have just undergone a liposuction procedure, you know that you definitely want to keep those new, slimmer curves. As you are aware, liposuction does eliminate fat cells from the body; however, if you don’t keep up with a healthy diet and exercise regime, new fat cells can develop, causing those unwanted bulges.
During the holiday season, we are often faced with sweet treats, cakes, cookies, and enormous holiday feasts. While you might think that you can just avoid those meals and treats, the truth is you don’t have to fully deprive yourself. Just follow some simple tips that can help keep your liposuction results at their peak!
Don’t Skip a Meal – Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast. This first meal of the day can help curb your appetite throughout the rest of the day.
Eat Small Meals More Often – Try to eat several smaller meals during the day. By eating numerous small meals during the day, you will retain a high level of energy and will help you stave off hunger pangs.
Drink Water – Drink plenty of water! Depending on your weight and body size, drink at least eight 8oz glasses of water per day (for a total of 64oz). This will keep you hydrated, and it aids in a healthy metabolism and digestion as well.
Eat the Right Foods – With the large feasts of the holidays, try to include whole grains and fresh vegetables and fruits. These foods will keep your blood sugar levels balanced, along with preventing cravings and hunger pangs.
Moderate Sugar Intake – Try to avoid eating too many sugary treats and foods. Of course, you’ll be tempted to have those wonderful and tasty treats, but just remember that moderation is your friend in this case. Have a cookie or two, just not the whole box!
Keep Up Exercise Regimen – Don’t forget that exercise routine. While you may be tempted to put off exercising during the holidays, it is very important to keep up your regular gym or exercise routines. You might even want to get a friend or family member accompany you so that you will be more motivated to exercise.
