One of the most frustrating things that people go through when they’re trying to lose weight is not being able to get rid of stubborn areas of fat around their abdomen, buttocks, or upper thighs. This reason alone is why liposuction still remains one of the most popular surgical procedures out there. By surgically removing excess fat from the body, liposuction can help you really get that body that you’ve been working so hard for.
To make sure that you continue to maintain your liposuction results, Dr. Gary J. Price encourages patients to continue to eat healthily and get regular exercise, but with the holidays around the corner, that may sound like a bit of a long shot. To help you stay on track during the holiday season, Dr. Price has created a list a few easy things you can do that will go a long way.
It can be hard to stay active when it’s cold outside, but there are some other indoor workouts that you can do. If you haven’t already, consider joining your local gym and taking some workout classes. When you are paying money to work out, you are more likely to use your membership and hit the gym on a regular basis. If you know that you are going to be attending more holiday parties one week, then try to go to more workout classes so that you burn extra calories.
Watch the Sweets
Pumpkin pie, holiday cookies, donuts, cakes, and baked treats are lurking behind virtually every corner and breakroom during the holidays. Even though all of these treats may be really tempting to indulge in, try to stay clear of them altogether. As a tip, bring some raw vegetables or fruit with you when you go to parties; that way you have something to munch on.
Skip the Alcohol
Cocktails are full of extra sugar and calories which are only going to add to your waistline. Rather than drinking your calories this holiday season, try to skip the alcohol and just stick with water. Water is not only calorie-free, but it’s also one of the best things you can drink for your health and your weight.
