How Long Will It Take To See Coolsculpting Results and How To Maintain Them?
Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, and the process involves the natural deposal of the destroyed fat cells, it is not a treatment that will show immediate results. The length of time you have to wait for the deposal to happen differs from one person to another, but generally speaking, most people see their CoolSculpting results in 3-6 weeks.
Now, notice that the fat cells destroyed during the CoolSculpting treatment will be deposed by your body naturally, once they’re gone, they’re gone! Out of your body and never coming back.
But that doesn’t mean you can just go all out and eat all kind of fatty food all day every day, trust me, I know we all secretly want to… Or I hope we all do, because I really don’t want to be the only one that does.
While it is great that you successfully got rid of some fat cells in bulk, the old fat cells being gone does not mean that there won’t be new fat coming in, because you will likely gain new fat, but worry not, your CoolSculpting results do not affect any of your body functions, including the rate and speed you gain fat. The process is completely normal and at your body’s own normal speed. What this means is, while no special treatment or attention is required, it is completely up to you when it comes to your CoolSculpting results maintenance. All the normal fitness approach would also apply to your post-CoolScupting maintenance plan. The most popular approaches are diet and exercise. If you don’t already have the habits, it is worth investing a little more time to find what you like in them to help you stay on track once you get started.
Diet and Exercise – Find out what you like
Diet – I know it sounds impossible for a meat lover to find “something” to like in a healthy (And probably vegetable focus) diet, but that doesn’t mean it is. Spend a little time and explore the world of healthy food, incorporate it into your diet and start with slight decrease of meat, gradually. There is no need to go full vegetable (Unless you want to), baby steps work just fine! Don’t like brown rice? How about mixing them with that delicious soft white rice to mix it up with the texture? If 50:50 is too much, there’s always 25:75 or 10:90, you can even start with just a pinch of brown rice if you want, the key is get started, let’s be casual about it.
Having trouble finding vegetables you like? If you’re used to Asian style well-cooked vegetable, how about some crunchy vegetable? Stir-fried vegetables make you want to throw up? Let’s try grilled vegetables. If you can’t go a meal without meat, why don’t you shake things up and go with fish every once in a while? Or maybe replace half of your red meat portion with fish. Be creative with the “Mix and Match” in your diet, the sky is the limit!
Exercise – Will I really find something I like in exercising if I absolutely hate exercising and simply just loathe sweats of any kind?
Well, if that’s really the case…Probably not.
But in the spirit of “You gotta do what you gotta do.”, there is always something that can serve as an added bonus. Setting up a goal to treat yourself to a nice steak dinner only if you consistently work out for at least 30 minutes a day for 2-3 straight week, taking time to compose a killer playlist for your exercise, these are the things you can do to try to make it more enjoyable, or at the very least, to provide more reason to get into the habit.
Mental notes after your CoolScupting treatment
Remember, although it requires no down time, it still takes a while for you to see your CoolSculpting results, and you definitely don’t want to let go and eat like it’s thanksgiving the moment you walk out of the clinic and let you new gained fat cover up your results, because it will. Start planning your diet and exercise as soon as you decide to receive CoolSculpting treatment and if you need help, don’t be shy to reach out to your service provider for recommendations.
Having a healthier diet and exercise will not only help maintain your CoolSculpting results, it will also improve your overall health, start small if you’re really reluctant and you might just be surprised how it is not at all that bad and getting into it might be easier than you participated![sgmb id=1]
