Undergoing liposuction is one of the best ways for you to get rid of stubborn unwanted fat. If you have had a hard time losing a few extra pounds with diet and exercise, then liposuction may be your way to finally feel 100% about the body you are in. Even though liposuction can give you real, long-lasting results, we still encourage all of our patients to continue to eat a lean diet and get regular exercise. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you may be wondering how on earth you’re going to eat healthily so that you don’t get your pre-lipo body back. Luckily, we have got your back and have created a list of a few ways to avoid that holiday weight gain.
Let’s take a closer look.
Skip the Alcohol
A glass or more of alcohol only means extra calories and on Thanksgiving, extra calories are the last thing that you want or need. Rather than adding more calories to your Thanksgiving feast, try to skip the alcohol altogether and just drink some water.
Skip the Seconds
Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving unless you went back for seconds, right? Unfortunately that extra helping of food is only going to add to your waistline. And chances are, you’re probably not even hungry for seconds. This Thanksgiving, try avoiding going back for more food and just let the first helping of food digest for a little bit.
Try Small Servings
In addition to using the tips listed above, try only dishing up small servings of food on your plate; you may be surprised at how full you get off of less food. When you are dishing up your plate, try to just get one small spoonful of everything; that way you get to try it all but you don’t eat too much.
It can be hard to have weight loss on your mind during the holidays. Use these tips to help you enjoy your Thanksgiving without worrying about post-lipo weigh gain. To learn more about liposuction recovery and tips, contact us at our Huntington office today at (631) 423-1000.
