Many of the loyal Sculpt Spa Las Vegas clients come to us looking for weight loss without dieting. In most cases, the goals aren’t really about losing pounds.
They’re about losing inches.
Either way, slimming down has a number of benefits. In Las Vegas, many entertainers see their body image as a career requirement. Others strive to perfect their physical being as a demonstration of self-care and worth. There is yet another reason to slim down: it is the healthy thing to do.
Not Just About Looks – Losing Inches Is Good For Your Health
Numerous studies have found that it is important to lose inches around the waist, and often regard this as more important than weight loss. These studies have stated that it is unhealthy to carry belly fat. The Center for Disease Control (CDC)considers measuring your waist circumference a better way to estimate your potential disease risk than assessing your overall weight. According to the CDC, a man’s waist circumference should be below 40 inches. A non-pregnant woman’s waist circumference should be below 35 inches.
How can you achieve losing inches without dieting? Here’s nine tips.
1. Eat your biggest meal of the day right after your work-out
Your body is craving energy right after your workout and has the metabolism to process it. It absorbs the carbs and starches to replenish blood-sugar levels and stop the breakdown of muscle. If you eat most of your food then, and cut down the rest of the day, you will reduce potential fat gains.
2. Eat lean proteins and cabbage family vegetables
These foods are considered more “thermogenic” than others, which means they create more internal heat in your body to digest them. That heat comes from burning more calories. If these two food types make up most of your food intake, you would burn off several hundred extra calories just by digesting your food.
3. Drink a lot of water
Water is a fat-burning elixir! It fills you up, so you want to eat less. It also fuels every chemical reaction in your body. Dehydration affects your fat metabolism.
4. Plate it strategically
Serve healthier food on a big plate, and unhealthy food on a smaller, preferably red plate. Psychologically this helps you want and eat less of the bad foods.
5. Avoid sugary drinks including juices
Liquid calories do not affect fullness the way solid foods do, so if you are taking in high calories from sodas and fruit juices you get high sugar and are still hungry.
6. Sleep well
If you are not sleeping well, you are disrupting the hormones that regulate your appetite. The fluctuation of hormones through lack of sleep and/or stress increases your hunger and makes you crave unhealthy food with high calories.
7. Eat Leucine in foods
Leucine is an amino acid in Sculpt Spa Las Vegas vitamin injections such as our ATHLETE blend. It is helpful when eaten in foods as well. It helps develop lean muscle mass and is found in beef, chicken, pork, tuna, milk, peanuts, lentils and eggs.
8. Eat Fiber
Eating foods rich in soluble fiber, that helps your gut health, can reduce belly fat. These foods include oatmeal, apples, berries and beans. Viscous fiber also helps significantly in weight loss. This fiber is only found in plant foods like brussels sprouts and asparagus. Viscous fiber forms a gel when it comes in contact with water. The get increases the time your body has to absorb nutrients and slows down the emptying of your stomach.
9. Eat with chop sticks
Your brain takes 20 minutes to register that you are full. Forks allow you to shovel in food at a fairly fast rate and you are likely full, and going beyond, as you fork more in. Chop sticks slow down the eating process and allows your brain to better keep up and signal you before you have consumed too much.
Additionally, Sculpt Spa Las Vegas provides a number of services that can directly help you achieve your body contouring goals.
· Our Las Vegas CoolSculpting services are the most popular non-surgical fat loss option in the valley. The process used is called cryolipolysis, which selectively freezes and kills fat cells. It does not harm your skin or other bodily tissues. FDA-cleared and effective, it has been conducted more than eight million times worldwide. The results are permanent, the process fits into your busy schedule and there is no downtime!
· Thinning down may be enhanced by strengthening, firming, and toning the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. To accomplish that, we’ve created a Las Vegas CoolTone service that’s earning fans everywhere in the Las Vegas area. It uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation technology which induces high intensity muscle contractions. Like CoolSculpting, CoolTone is easy to schedule and has no downtime afterwards.
· Sculpt Spa Las Vegas also offers vitamin injections that aid in your plan to lose inches without dieting. Take advantage of our LEAN vitamin cocktail of B12, MIC and L-Carnitine, which helps covert fat into energy, and our ATHLETE cocktail of BCAA: Isoleucine/Leucine/Valine which are the building blocks for protein synthesis and will build your muscles.
· Also take advantage of Sculpt Spa’s Las Vegas infrared sauna. This advanced therapy increases your heart rate and cardiac output and can burn up to 600 calories per session.
Lose Inches … With No Diet Needed
If you had to pick only one way to lose inches without dieting, CoolSculpting Las Vegas would be your pick. The process of cryolipolysis treats the subcutaneous fat, which is the exact type of fat that gives you extra inches. It freezes the fat to “fat necrosis” – which means it literally kills it.
Your body then purges the dead fat cells, and they are permanently gone!
