5 Reasons Why Your Diet is Not Working

We’ve all been there: the many unsuccessful trips to the gym, the expensive bills at the health food store and that scale that simply will not budge. So what’s the problem? According to a recent article in Prevention magazine, there may be other factors that are contributing to your weight loss troubles. Here are 5 reasons why you’re losing more faith than weight during your diet.

  1. You’re not consuming enough calories. There’s a fine line between boosting your metabolism and stunting it.
  2. You let yourself indulge in a high-calorie treat after you work out as a reward.
  3. You consume diet drinks because they have no calories, but they are actually raising your insulin levels and causing your body to store calories as fat.
  4. Your friends are overweight or have bad eating habits which distort your perceptions and increases temptations.
  5. You’ve completely eliminated carbs and fat resulting in a deficiency of the nutrients that give you energy.
Dieting can sometimes cause more stress than success, but Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Leawood, Kansas near Kansas City can help you finally achieve your weight loss goals and the figure you’ve always wanted. Browse the full list of weight loss procedures, treatments and diet programs, and then request an appointment online when you are ready to stop stressing and start seeing that scale move towards success.

Data Shows an Increase in Popularity & Acceptance of Cosmetic Plastic Surgeries

Cosmetic surgery may not be something you had ever thought of before, but this new data may change your mind. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 13.8 million cosmetic surgery procedures were performed in 2011 across the United States. While keeping up with trends has never been a valid argument for anyone doing anything they’re uncomfortable with, the facts are clear that cosmetic surgeries are more advanced, safer and much more widely accepted today.

Two types of cosmetic surgeries that specifically grew in popularity last year were breast augmentation and weight reduction procedures. In 2011, there were more than 96,000 breast augmentations performed. The number of liposuction procedures performed last year also increased from 2010 as weight control remains a top priority among Americans. Even with diet and exercise, certain stubborn areas like love handles are simply hard to get rid of. By embracing liposuction, individuals can get over that initial hurdle and get back to looking their best.

Those looking for more information on breast augmentation and liposuction procedures in the Kansas or Missouri area can schedule a consultation at Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Leawood, Kansas. After a thorough body analysis, Midwest Medical Aesthetics can help you find the laser liposuction or weight loss plan that will have you looking slim and trim in no time.
