Eating Right, Exercising and Losing Those Holiday Handles with CoolSculpting

Eating Right, Exercising and Losing Those Holiday Handles with CoolSculpting

The holiday season can be a bad time in terms of all those tempting goodies which people prepare for guests and offer as snacks or desserts. It's hard to say 'no' to all those fruitcakes, pies, cakes, and cookies when they look and smell so inviting.

But a little over-indulgence in all those treats inevitably packs on extra weight, and when the New Year comes, you might find that you've put on some extra weight during the holiday season. Even worse, most people are so busy doing extra tasks associated with the holidays, that they don't have time for their regular exercise programs. How can you cope with this?

Well, one of the best options available to you is CoolSculpting. The process is totally non-invasive and simply involves the use of freezing the fat off your body, and contouring it by hitting specific desired areas, so you're left looking (and feeling!) much better.

Once the fat has been frozen, the body naturally disposes of it over a period of days or weeks, and it's gone forever, or at least until the next holiday season. You've probably noticed some stubborn areas of your body that just don't respond to exercise, and retain unwanted pounds no matter what you do. CoolSculpting will break down the fat in those areas, and banish them from your body.

How CoolSculpting works

While it's not a weight loss strategy per se, CoolSculpting is great for removing fat from the belly, the 'love handles', thighs, or buttocks in sessions that specifically target them. A session will take about an hour from start to finish, and you can relax throughout the entire time, reading a book or listening to your headset.

First, a protective gel pad is applied to the skin around the affected area, so your skin doesn't get damaged. Unwanted fat is stretched between a pair of panels to make sure that these are the only cells which get destroyed during treatment. The CoolSculpting device will then freeze the fat cells, which immediately kills them. After that, it just takes a matter of time before your body eliminates them through natural means.

Couple CoolSculpting with a healthy lifestyle

To make CoolSculpting as effective as possible, you should couple it with a healthy diet and a regular program of exercise. Following the holidays, make sure to get back to your normal healthy diet that minimizes sweets and includes lots of vegetables, fruits, and fiber. Regular exercise will help prevent fat from accumulating at certain locations around the body, so you won't have to resort to extra measures to eliminate those fat cells.

When the New Year rolls around, and you start thinking about your resolutions for the coming year, be sure to include regular exercise and a healthy diet as cornerstones of your new lifestyle. And if you do develop some stubborn fat pockets somewhere along the line, remember that CoolSculpting is one of the very best ways for having them removed safely and naturally.
