Let’s be honest, diet and exercise are not fun. They are very challenging, require a lot of time, take up a lot of energy and require a lot of emotional dedication. It is rewarding to see how changes in your diet and switch-ups in your exercise routine can produce changes in your body. However, it can be frustrating when those changes are not exactly what you wanted to see.
Just about everyone who has tried to lose weight has had to struggle with trying to shed weight around those stubborn fat areas. For some people, it’s their love handles; for other people, it’s the fat on the underside of their arms. Some even struggle losing fat in their legs.
Regardless of what exercise websites say, there is no way that a person can spot reduce fat on a certain area of their body with diet and exercise alone. No amount of crunches, no amount of planks and no amount of cardio is going to get rid of your love handles directly.
It is likely that you are going to see faster decreases in body fat on your chest and face as opposed to your abdomen. This is because of how your body naturally distributes and stores fat. Depending on your genetic disposition, you may not lose fat over your entire body; you may just lose it in some areas. With diet and exercise, there is nothing that you can do to directly control where your fat loss will be.
Thankfully, there are non-surgical body sculpting procedures like CoolSculpting®. When CoolSculpting came on the market, many people were skeptical. Prior to this treatment, there was no non-surgical weight loss procedure that used cold technology in this way.
CoolSculpting® has been approved by the FDA. It uses a controlled cooling process to safely attack and kill fat cells in the treated area. When these fat cells die, they are naturally removed from your body through your body’s waste removal process. The treatments can be directly used to target stubborn areas of fat. It can be directed at your love handles, your legs or your arms.
It is important to clarify that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss program. It is not designed to replace diet and exercise, but instead for individuals who have a healthy BMI. It is designed to help these individuals sculpt their body by removing fat from areas they cannot address with diet and exercise alone.
One of the nice things about the CoolSculpting results is that they can have a positive effect on your overall diet and exercise routine. When you start to see the fat disappear from your love handles or from other trouble areas, you will be more inclined to stick with your diet and exercise plan because you do not want the fat to return to these areas.
CoolSculpting® is a powerful tool that has helped many individuals get the sculpted body they want. After using this procedure, they are no longer ashamed to go to the beach or be outdoors without their shirt. They have the sculpted body they want, and this gives them the confidence they deserve.
