The Holidays are here and it’s hard to lose the few extra pounds we’re all bound to put on from all that Pumpkin Pie, Turkey, Prime Rib, Wine, Beer, and Desserts you’ve been enjoying. You may be self-conscious on how you look for those Holiday Parties. I know how you feel, and we have all been there! I have put together 5 easy steps on how to lose weight.

Tip 1. Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily. This is really easy to do especially during the summer but I think we tend to drink less water during the winter. If the water tastes bland, you can add lemon or cucumber slices to give it some flavor. Drink a glass of water before each meal and you will eat less because water will help you feel full. And remember drink at least as much water to equal your wine & beer intake during the holidays!

Tip 2. Make sure you eat breakfast. Do not skip breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal. Eating a nice and healthy breakfast will give you energy and improve your performance throughout your day. Studies show that people who eat breakfast tend to weigh less than people who skip it, especially if the meal is high in protein.

Tip 3. Increase your walking time. Everyone already walks. You walk to your car, walk the dog, and walk around the house. Now try to increase your walking time. Park the car in the back of the parking lot. Walk around your block a few times a day.  Plan a half-hour walk with your friend instead of talking on the phone. By increasing the walking you are losing weight and burning more calories. This gets a little harder to do in the winter so just bundle up and walk faster to get some body heat going!

Tip 4. Adding veggies to your meals. Instead of snacking on candy, chips, or granola bars, try sliced carrots, red peppers, or celery. Really any vegetable will do. When you want a snack, it is hard not to grab something that is already ready to eat. If you prepare your veggie snacks beforehand and put them in zip-lock bags, they will be ready for you when you want a snack. That way you will be making a healthy choice. During lunch and dinner, increase your veggies. Make a nice big salad and load it up with veggies. Veggies are low-calorie foods that are healthy for you and will help you lose weight.

Tip 5. Eat your last meal before 6 pm. Your metabolism slows down towards the end of the day. People tend to move around less especially after dinner. That is why it is important to eat dinner before 6 pm. You can still eat a light snack afterward. This way you will burn calories and lose weight.

If you tried diet and you still have stubborn fat that you can’t lose, we offer a procedure called CoolSculpting®. This procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet and exercise-resistant fat.

Freeze away fat? It comes down to a science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. the technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. CoolSculpting is an alternative to Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, which is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and sucks fat from the body.

CoolSculpting® is non-invasive fat-reduction freeze fat away with this non-surgical Lipo alternative with no needles…no Surgery…no downtime!
