How To Lose Weight And Banish Fat?
Are your clothes getting a little too snug after the festive season?
Here are some tips on how to lose weight and banish fat safely.
1. Watch what you eat
The old adage of “calories in, calories out” still rings true – excessive intake of high-calorie foods will lead to weight gain in the long term. If you have overindulged over the Chinese New Year, do not fret. You can start making simple changes such as limiting the portion of food you eat during mealtimes, and choosing healthier snacks such as fruit and nuts over cookies and chips.
Increasing your energy expenditure through exercise is a proven way to lose weight. Furthermore, a recent study has shown that doing exercise in the afternoon reduced belly fat more than those who exercised in the morning. An easy way of getting exercise throughout the day is going for a walk after meals – this also helps to metabolise the meal better and prevent it from being stored as fat.
3. Prioritise sleep
Studies have shown that people who lack sleep are at higher risk of obesity. This may also be due to the fact that we tend to snack more at night if we are not able to sleep. Start a winding-down routine a few hours before bedtime – put away phones and electronic devices, make a cup of herbal tea, and get ready to sleep.
4. Shift your stubborn fats with our Body Contouring Treatment Program
For those inches of stubborn fat, consider Healthsprings’ body contouring program consisting of three non-invasive treatments that effectively target fat cells and cellulite.
First, Vanquish Me uses radiofrequency waves to destroy fat cells and eliminate fat evenly from the abdomen, love handles, and/or thighs. Exilis Elite further enhances fat burning and targets specific trouble areas for a more sculpted midsection. Finally, X-wave stimulates microcirculation in connective tissues and lymphatic drainage for increased expulsion of fat from the body, and reduction of cellulite. The treatments also increase collagen production and improve skin elasticity, resulting in firmer, toned skin.
