Everyone wants you to lose weight. After all, it’s good for all of us if we’re healthy, happy, athletic, and productive. Nobody thinks that we should have a society rammed with overweight people, struggling against the bulge every day.
However, if you’ve just been through radical weight loss and come out the other side, you may have noticed that it didn’t go exactly as you’d hoped. Yes, you’ve lost weight, but there are some nasty side-effects that nobody wanted to warn you about.
The first problem is hunger. It doesn’t go away, especially if you’re following a low-calorie regimen without changing the quality of the food. Nobody told you that.
The second issue is perhaps even more disturbing. You’ve lost weight, but instead of looking like you did when you were twenty, you look like you’ve deflated, and not in a good way. No amount of weight loss is going to get rid of those stretch marks or excess skin. Quite the opposite.
The third issue is that even though your neck and arms are stick-thin, the fat doesn’t seem to want to budge from other areas. You’ve still got a bulge of fat on your hips or thighs that don’t want to go. It’s mocking your efforts.
Radical weight loss is a tricky business. Medical professionals want to tell people to lose weight because it’s good for their long term metabolic health, but they don’t want to talk about the unfortunate side effects. Once you’re one hundred pounds overweight, it becomes much more challenging to return to how you were in your youth. The body just doesn’t want to return to the way it was.
The good news is that there’s quite a bit that you can do about each of the problems we’ve outlined above. Let’s deal with them in turn.
Stopping The Hunger
Hunger is annoying. It gnaws away at you and sometimes prevents you from enjoying your life. What’s more, it’s not necessary. You don’t have to be chronically hungry to stay at a certain weight. The trick is to stuff your face with bulky, fibrous plant foods. Beans and greens are your staples. Eat them as often as you can, and you’ll stay at a healthy weight without starving yourself.
Getting Rid Of Stretched Skin
This one’s a little trickier. You may have to go for a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon to see whether you need to remove excess skin.
Getting Rid Of Stubborn Fat
You’ve lost weight, but you still have pockets of fat dotted around your body. Instead of giving up, you can opt for non-invasive techniques which kill off the fat beneath your skin with no adverse side effects. Coolsculpting thighs is a widespread technique which involves freezing the fat cells in the leg and then relying on the body to clear them away permanently.
Techniques like cool sculpting are ideal for people who don’t want to go under the knife and just need that little extra push to get the body that they want finally.
