Weight Loss Tips from Midwest Medical Aesthetics

On Wednesday we introduced our top 10 ways to lose weight for a bit of New Year’s encouragement. Today, we will finish with our final tips for losing weight:

 

6. Order small portions at restaurants: it’s tough to order small at restaurants when you would like to have an appetizer as well as the main meal. I find the portions are large enough that a main course can be shared by 2 people. This leaves a little room at the end of the meal to share a dessert. Take note, however, your real savings will occur in the calories that don’t end up somewhere you don’t want them seen.

7. Eat more fiber: fiber is very filling. It’s better for your digestive system and by eating more fiber you will find yourself full sooner. This feeling of fullness will last a long time as well.

8. Take your time eating: your brain takes longer to tell you you’re full so often we keep eating well after we’ve had enough. Take your time, put down your fork a couple of times during the meal to enjoy the eating experience. Chew your food longer instead of gulping it down (which is better for your digestion, and it will give your brain a chance to realize that you don’t really need any more food.

9. Get regular exercise: it’s a good to do regular exercise 3 times per week to reduce fat, lose weight, increase muscle and gain energy. Physical activities like running, swimming and cycling or lifting weights can burn the calories and release endorphins, “happy hormones” to give you an extra kick in your step and zest in your smile.

10. Liposuction: with the technological advances in this area, there are numerous choices available that can help you rapidly. Not only get rid of body fat in selected areas, it can actually help sculpt your body features giving you the look you want.

Top 10 Ways To Lose Weight

Need a little encouragement as you’re working toward your New Year’s weight loss goals? We want to share our top 10 ways to lose weight to help you along:

  1. Eat smaller more frequent meals: not only is your metabolism boosted every time you eat something, your body can more efficiently process smaller meals. Instead of having 3 large meals in a day, try to break them up into 5 or 6 smaller meals.
  2. Drink more water: regular water intake helps to flush away waste products…and having a glass or 2 of water before you eat can help fill you up.
  3. Eat more protein: sources of protein include foods such as chicken, fish, eggs, dairy, beans, lean red meats, etc. Your body burns more calories processing protein than either carbohydrates or fats. Protein also helps to support your muscle tissue, which burns calories all day long!
  4. Walk more: not only will you save on gas, you’ll get your exercise. Instead of driving, walk to the corner store. A 30 minute walk daily will do wonders for your health and you will be surprised at the pounds you can shed. And always take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  5. Don’t let yourself get hungry: when you get hungry you will have a much greater tendency to overeat when you do finally get something to eat. As well, because your body is starting to go into starvation mode, it will be much more likely to hold onto whatever you give it.

Come back Friday to find out the rest of our top 10 ways to lose weight, or sign up to receive blog posts from Midwest Medical Aesthetics sent straight to your inbox.

Airbrush Tanning $45 at Midwest Medical Aesthetics

Want to have that “just off the beach look” without the harmful rays of the sun? Air Mist Tanning is the perfect answer. Midwest Medical utilizes the best solution to give you that perfect coloring. In just minutes you can be transformed into a bronzed body! Air Mist Tanning is done with a person actually spraying you (not a booth where it may be uneven and splotchy). Air Mist Tanning lasts a week.

When getting a tan, remember:

  • Shave the night before or the day of the appointment.
  • Do not apply moisturizer on the day of your appointment.
  • If having your face sprayed, remove all makeup prior to the tan.
  • Wear loose clothing and sandals to allow the product to dry.

Your tan will be immediate, as there is color in the spray, and will develop underneath this product for the next 8-12 hours. When you shower after this period of time the immediate coloring will come off and the developed tan will be beautiful underneath. Get that sun-kissed glow now! Airbrush tanning at Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Kansas City is just $45.

Call us at 913-327-7175 to set up an appointment.

3 Most Popular Liposuction Treatments

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of fat from beneath the surface of the skin. It is designed to remove pockets of fat that have not responded to diet or exercise, so is not an effective method of weight loss. Good candidates for this procedure are near their ideal weight and are active and healthy. It also helps to have good skin elasticity so that the skin shrinks to the reduced contour.

Did you know liposuction can be just as cost effective as investing in exercise equipment, gym memberships and diets? So…jump start your New Year’s Resolution and change your life for good!

Check out the 3 Most Popular Liposuction Treatments:

Body-Jet Liposuction: Body-Jet Liposuction is a revolutionary alternative to more traditional forms of liposuction. Body-Jet Lipo is gentle, fast and effective for many procedures including abdomen, buttocks, hips, knees, arms and thighs. The fat in these areas is removed using water providing a more gentle procedure that is minimally invasive with rapid recovery times and very effective results.

Lapex Lipo Laser: The Lapex 2000 Lipo Laser’s non-invasive treatment is a world renowned and innovative method of treating areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. With Lapex Laser Liposuction there is no need for either local or general anaesthetics. A Laser Lipo procedure can be completed in just 40 minutes and positive results can be seen INSTANTLY after just one treatment.

Zerona Laser: Results of the pilot study showed that patients could lose as much as nine inches after their first series of treatments; results could be seen in approximately 14days, and no side effects were reported. Other key benefits of the Zerona laser include:

  • No downtime
  • No incisions or marks from the treatment
  • No need to wear compression garments
  • Ongoing fat loss days and weeks after treatment
  • No reported side effects
  • Uses the Erchnoia laser, which received FDA market clearance for liposuction in 2004, and for acne in 2005
