Losing weight can be a long and arduous task. It requires full dedication, inner strength, will power and discipline. Anyone who has managed to lose a large amount of weight and keep it off knows that it is no quick and easy fix. Reaching your final goal could take years, and then you have to look at then sculpting the results – another long and arduous task. Sometimes your best alterntaive is not liposuction, but instead, exercises that tone muscle.
Not everyone loves the idea of going to the gym and pumping iron in order to tone and sculpt their muscles. There are many exercises that will help with this task without requiring the use of weights or other equipment. Here are some ideas:
When you’re swimming, you’re using almost every major muscular system in your body. On top of this, swimming is also great aerobic exercise and breathing exercise. With a quick stretch before diving in, you can do the majority of your warm up and cool down in the pool. A simple over hand stroke puts all your muscles to good use, and an hour or so of swimming on alternating days can really help produce results in the legs, arms, abdominal region, back and neck.
2) Push-ups and sit-ups
Think military style. In order for push-ups and sit-ups to really produce results, they have to be done in a certain form. Military training units are using styles of these exercises that force more muscles into action than any other style of sit-up or push-up. You’ll definitely feel sore if you’re not used to that kind of work out, so using alternate exercises such as knee push-ups or crunches can be great starters. By using your own body weight to work muscles of the arms, legs, back, shoulders, stomach, buttocks and more, sit-ups and push-ups have proven their worth in the physique of anyone who practices them regularly.
Now, it’s important to wear good, cushioned jogging sneakers before you start pounding the pavement. Otherwise, you could damage your ankles, knees, hips and other joints due to repetitive impact. This is one of the reasons that many people are beginning to do their daily run on a treadmill. Regardless of how you choose to jog, be sure to do it safely. Jogging builds the muscles and ligaments in the legs, mainly, but you can purchase weighted gloves and tiny dumb bells to help you begin to build muscle in your arms with the motions involved in jogging.
All of these exercises mentioned are also great in working towards weight loss. Because of the way they use the muscles and the aerobics involved, these exercises are effective fat burners when applied in an appropriate exercise program and accompanied by a healthy, balanced daily diet.continue reading
There is little doubt that topical creams and lotions will probably never be a short-term replacement for plastic surgery. However, in the long run, the topical cream or lotion will definitely be an excellent replacement, since plastic surgery results begin to deteriorate within 24 hours of the surgery. As time progresses, the fat will begin to build up again, and the wrinkles will start to reform. On the other hand, if you continue to apply the cream/lotion faithfully, the results will continue and be maintained.
With thousands of creams and lotions on the market today promising maximum results and “best alternative to liposuction,” is it possible to choose one for your body, especially the sensitive skin of your face? Experts agree that there are a few things to watch for when you choose a topical cream or lotion to minimize wrinkles or other appearances of aging.
- Check the ingredients. This is especially important if you have any known allergies. Some creams contain harmful ingredients that can cause reactions, such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Common side effects of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, redness, and irritation, but more serious side effects such as anaphylactic shock can happen in rare cases.
- Read the directions. We all lead very busy lives, and we don’t want to have to take a break every 4-6 hours to apply new lotion, especially women who wear makeup daily. Look for overnight or once/twice daily creams and/or lotions.
- Research the brand name. If you have any doubts as to the veracity of a brand name’s claims, check them out. Many websites are devoted to reviewing products, and you can normally read a plethora of comments on any given topical cream. In addition, look for clinical trials and their results. These are also very helpful.
- Ask a healthcare professional. Whether you choose to speak to a doctor, pharmacist, dermatologist, or another health-care specialist, they can normally recommend very helpful products. Overall, many would rather recommend a cream or lotion than perform plastic surgery on any given patient.
Above anything else, never use something that is not over the counter without a valid prescription. Your best friend may have a prescription wrinkle treatment cream that works for her skin, but could cause problems or counteract another medication for you. Always talk to your doctor before using something that is not prescribed to you.continue reading
It goes by so many names, it might be easy to be confused into thinking there are hundreds of different sciences designed to help people in their quest to lose weight and shape their bodies. Indeed, the list of these arts is vast, but many use the same basic science and philosophy in their practice. By changing a single basic component of the procedure, scientists are able to offer trademarked names.
Lipodissolve, mesotherapy, lipolysis and lipostabil are just a few of the names you might hear to describe this particular weight loss aid. Everyone of these uses the same basic operation: a cocktail of numerous ingredients is created by a licensed physician and is administered through a series of injections to a specific zone. The needle used is inserted into the flesh slightly deeper than a tattoo needle would be, thus determining that these procedures feel very similar to the process of being tattooed. The cocktail is designed to help a patient achieve weight loss and body sculpting goals by making fat deposits weak and malleable.
It is important for anyone who is considering these procedures to be fully aware that they are not designed to be a replacement for healthy living, which includes a balanced diet plan and lots of exercise. These injections are designed to help the process of burning away fat and sculpting the zones where deposits have found homes.
Potential patients of Lipodissolve or any of its cousins should also be aware that this process has not been FDA approved. This means that the method nor the ingredients used in the injections have been tested nor approved by United States government officials for the uses outlined above. While no adverse side effects have been noted, this is an important factor to consider.
When it comes to any elective procedure, ensuring you know as much as possible about the science and philosophy of that particular procedure is vital. It can arm you with knowledge that could prevent future health problems, allergic reactions, and it can also help you figure out what you want to know from your surgeon. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and expect thorough answers. A good surgeon will be confident in the information he gives you and will be armed with answers to your questions.continue reading
