3 Ways To Avoid Gaining Weight After Liposuction

The last thing that you want to do after you get a procedure like liposuction is gain all of the weight back, but with the holiday season just around the corner, if you're not careful that nightmare could become a reality. This article will take a closer look at three ways that you can avoid gaining weight after lipo. Ready to learn more? Read on. 

1. Exercise

One of the best things that you can do both for your heart health and your waistline is to get plenty of exercises; even during the holidays. Just remember that exercising doesn't have to be something crazy and intense, you just want to try to get your heart rate up and elevated at least three to five times a week or even more if you are eating a little bit more than ever. If you suffer from joint pain or other issues, then try doing something easier or your joints like swimming or going for walks. 

2. Watch the Carbs

Carbohydrates don't have to be your enemy, but you should definitely limit your carb intake. Because there are more sweets and carbohydrates around during this time of year, it can be really easy to fill up on things like breads, potatoes, and pastries. Try to really watch your carbohydrate intake and only have one of these things every few days; that way, you aren't going to gain too much weight. 

3. Opt for Fresh Vegetables

The tricky thing about keeping weight off during the holiday season is that even though there may be vegetables on the Thanksgiving or Christmas table, they are more than likely disguised with things like marshmallows, corn flakes, or overly-processed onions. Rather than eating these casseroles (no matter how delicious they are) try making some fresh vegetables instead. Fresh vegetables aren't only higher in nutrients, but they are also lower in calories as well; which makes them an exceptionally good choice for you to make. If you want, you can even log onto a website like Pinterest and try some new recipes. 

If you just got liposuction, then maintaining your results should be a priority this holiday season. To make sure that you don't gain back any of the weight that you lost during surgery, make sure that you make conscious eating decisions and that you try to eat as healthily a possible. And, if you do mess up and eat too many sweets try to get back on track the next day so that you don't gain more weight.
