Many people come to liposuction as a last resort in their weight loss endeavors. After years of yo-yo dieting and inconsistent exercise, they choose liposuction as a way to bow out of the battle with the bulge. These people will have trouble getting the results they desire, and even more so, have trouble maintaining what results they do get.
Most liposuction surgeons will require that their patients maintain a healthy weight prior to undergoing liposuction. This will ensure that the procedure is carried out safely, that the results achieved are optimal, and that the patient doesn’t “relapse” into bad habits and gain weight afterwards.
But let’s face it, losing weight and keeping it off is hard-- especially if you’re someone who has always struggled with your weight. Dieting is beyond frustrating. You have to cut out things in your diet that you love, work your way through “hangry” mood swings, and motivate yourself to exercise even when you don’t have time (isn’t that everyone’s excuse?).
If you’re dying to see you body sculpted to perfection (whether it’s through liposuction or good ol’ fashioned trying), and you’re ready to make the changes in your lifestyle that will get you there, it’s time to come to Paleo.
The basics of the Paleo diet are to only consume food that was available more than ten thousand years ago during the Paleolithic era, which is where this wonderful eating plan gets its name from. The idea behind the diet is to cut out grains, dairy and sugar and focus on eating lean cuts of meat and plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Aside from losing weight and building healthy muscles, among the great unexpected benefits of the Paleo diet is the energy you will have. It eliminates all the processed foods you would normally eat that slow you down, and replaces that with healthy unprocessed foods that are much more nutritious and healthier for your body. The diet is high in servings of fruits and vegetables which will keep you going for much longer than a sugar filled snack that will give you a quick hit of energy for 20 minutes and then let you crash.
The diet is also high in healthy fats. It does sound strange to talk about eating fats while trying to lose weight however it’s been proven that eating the proper types of fats is healthy for the body and provides the energy the body needs to make it through the day. If you get your fats from those foods high in omega-3 rich foods such as nuts and fish you be helping your body get rid of the bad fat while retaining the good fats for your body to use.
There’s no questioning that sticking to a healthy diet is difficult. Carbs and sweets will always be tempting. But, this new lifestyle is guaranteed to satisfy, and everyone who tries it raves about how great they feel-- inside and out. So why not give it a try, then reward yourself with lipo?
