It seems like a large portion of the San Antonio population is looking to shed some unwanted pounds. It might be to fit into an old pair of jeans, or to go on that beach holiday they’ve been looking forward to for months. Or perhaps it’s just because they want to look their best every day. Whatever the reason, losing fat and toning up is top priority. Many go on diets and exercise every chance they get, but sometimes even that’s not enough. There always seems to be that extra bit of stubborn flab that won’t go away. After all that work, you would expect that you’d be able to rock a swimsuit without some belly fat removal? Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
Here are some ways you can lose some fat and get yourself looking and feeling great.
Be Less Salty
Many people are great at watching what they eat, but maybe don’t realize how much salt there is in a lot of the food we consume on a regular basis, no matter the amount of calories. Sodium can cause your body to retain water, which can cause bloating. Sodium also affects the kidneys by preventing the proper detoxification of your blood, which can also cause bloating and also uneven skin texture. Processed foods and breakfast cereals are both big salt carriers. Try to make food from scratch as much as possible and you’ll be amazed at the difference it will make for belly fat removal.
Don’t be Tone Deaf
General diet and exercise are great for losing weight and leading a healthier lifestyle, but sometimes after you’ve lost a lot of weight, there are still difficult spots to deal with. Try some toning exercises to target those spots to get the best results. If your arms have a little extra flab, then tricep dips and pushups a few minutes a day can help. Stomach crunches, sit-ups, and planking can tighten up your tummy and get you on your way to a 6 pack. Also, don’t forget squats and lunges to work on your thighs.
Coolsculpting is a non-surgical procedure specifically designed to target trouble spots with which you are having difficulty. It involves freezing specific spots where there are excess fat cells on your body. As they freeze, the fat cells die off and are flushed out of your body through its natural cleansing system. It’s safe and effective, and doesn’t involve any invasive procedures. Coolsculpting involves controlled cooling, so it’s not harsh or uncomfortable, and is a great method for body and belly fat removal.
This may seem like a strange one, but regularly exfoliating your skin can give you a more toned appearance. Exfoliating will clear the pores, remove dead skin, smoothen your skin’s texture, and make your skin look less puffy. As well, clear pores will allow your firming gel to work more effectively. All of this can give your arms and legs a lighter and tighter look.
Water is quite simply the best drink for your body. Drinking water kick starts your digestive system to keep things flowing, which will flush out unwanted toxins and keep your skin vibrant and clear. Being hydrated also prevents cravings for junk food, and keeps you feeling energized throughout the day, which means better workouts to tone up those troubled spots.
We all want to look our best, whether it’s for spending time in the sun or just for our own confidence. Try out these tricks to get your body looking toned as quickly as possible.
