The holiday season is one of the best times of the year, filled with delicious meals and savory sweets at every turn. It’s easy to stop eating healthy and exercising during the holidays, and before you know it, holiday weight starts to show.
The plastic surgery and medical spa team at Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body in Johns Creek, Georgia, understands how difficult it can be to keep up with your weight loss goals during the holidays. That’s why they have compiled a few tips for avoiding holiday weight gain — and how you can lose weight fast with options available at Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body.
Tips to Prevent Holiday Weight Gain
From the holiday parties to the big meals to the plethora of cookies and cakes – there is a lot of temptation between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. By being proactive and using some of the strategies below, however, you can keep off the pounds that you normally might add on during this time of year.
Treat Yourself – in Moderation
Yes, allow yourself to indulge in small treats – but don’t overdo it. Limit yourself to one dessert per day, for example, rather than having one with both lunch and dinner.
Choose the Smaller Plate
When attending a holiday party or other gathering, instead of loading up a large plate with all the available goodies, load up a small plate instead. It will help you keep your portions in check.
Indulge During Weekends or During Select Events
Instead of going all out and allowing yourself to give in to temptation at every turn, limit yourself to indulging during specific times only; for example, during weekends or during select events like your company’s holiday party or your neighbor’s Christmas shindig.
Drink in Moderation
Calories from alcohol can add up quickly, so limit yourself to one glass of wine or cocktail per event – or abstain from alcohol entirely and save your calories for that piece of chocolate cake you’ve been eyeing!
Don’t Try Everything
You may have neighbors bringing over sweets, co-workers coming to the office with plates of brownies and other temptations, but you don’t have to try everything! Stay away from the break room and stick to the foods you love to eat (or drink) during the holidays.
Keep Up With Your Exercise Routine
It’s cold out, there’s a Hallmark movie on TV, and you don’t want to get off the couch to go exercise. But it’s important to stick to your normal exercise routine during this time of year. Be strong and stay focused on your goals.
How Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body Can Help You Lose Weight
Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body in Johns Creek offers a variety of solutions for those looking to lose weight, including:
SculpSure Burns Fat Quickly
Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body is the ideal solution for anyone looking to quickly remove lower belly fat or love handles. The SculpSure technology provides patients with a weight-loss solution without any recovery time!
In just 25 minutes, Dr. Myla can begin body contouring with a safe, FDA-approved laser treatment. Most clients find that this contouring treatment helps improve their silhouettes in just 12 weeks. Keep the holiday weight off with SculpSure this holiday season.
Remove Stubborn Weight with Liposuction
If you are an active individual and still find trouble areas on your figure, then liposuction may be a good option for you. Even with healthy eating and exercise, some fat deposits can be difficult to remove.
Although a more intensive option than SculptSure, liposuction is a long-term solution for patients seeking intensive contouring. Liposuction is an effective way to target areas such as your thighs, inner knees, abdomen or back.
If you find that your chin is a particularly difficult area, consider chin liposuction for a glowing, younger look that’s perfect for the holiday season.
Abdominoplasty Fights Holiday Weight Gain
Have you tried dieting and exercise but aren’t happy with the results? Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body specializes in Abdominoplasty, or tummy tucks, to help you remove any unwanted weight gain from the holiday season.
Focused on the lower abdomen and sides, the tummy tuck can help you remove any excess weight or skin. Depending upon the individual, there are two ways to do an abdominoplasty. There are in-patient or out-patient procedures, each with specific incision types and recovery periods.
