Step Out of the Gym and Into the Spa: Popular, Exercise-Free Weight Loss Treatments
When you think about weight losing tactics, the first methods that come to mind are probably exercising and eating healthier. These are the most traditional and can certainly be effectives. Sometimes, though, we find ourselves with stubborn pockets of fat that do not go away with traditional methods. If you have found yourself struggling to lose those last few pounds, we encourage you not to lose hope because there are other methods on the market that do not involve exercising at all. We offer a few of those methods at Novopelle Med Spa, and we will walk you through a few fan favorites:
Body contouring, or body sculpting, is a collection of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments that patients can undergo when they want to reveal a firm, toned body that might be hidden beneath layers of fat or loose skin. With a body contouring procedure, the fat cells in your body are removed or destroyed. The amazing part about this procedure is that once those fat cells are one, they can never be regenerated or replaced. However, it is important to remember that the fat cells that remain in the body can still shrink and grow after the procedure. With a single treatment of body contouring, you can expect to lose between 20-80% of the fat cells that are currently in a given treatment region. This will depend on how well your individual body responds to the treatment.
At Novopelle Med Spa, we offer a medical weight loss program to help our patients experience rapid weight loss and muscle retention. It is a hormone-based diet that involves a small dosage of Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone, a bioidentical hormone that the body naturally produces. The medical weight loss program is designed help the body burn fat and retain muscle mass at the same time. Our average patient reports losing between .5 to 1lb per day. Plus, the program does not involve exercise, so if exercise is your enemy, this program might be your new best friend.
B12 injections are usually given either as hydroxocobalamin or cyanocobalamin, which are very effective at raising blood levels of B12 and preventing and reversing a deficiency. A lack of B12 can lead to anemia, causing you to feel tired and weak. These fat-burning injections help to break down stored fats and provide a boost of energy. Lipotropic shots can also help support liver function and promote fat excretion. B12 injections also improve the function of your metabolism and help improve sleeping patterns and circadian rhythm, increases concentration and mood, and boosts your immune system.
Our specialty treatment, Novo Lipo, is a noninvasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. Many patients undergo this treatment with the goal to achieve a more toned and contoured body and face, with noticeable results after the very first session. The Novo Lipo process works by heating and destroying stubborn fat cells. The fat cells are then naturally drained thanks to the body’s own filtration process via the lymphatic and urinary systems. Not only are the results, long-lasting, but the treatment does not involve downtime or pesky exercises.
Other Ways to Lose Weight Without Exercise
In addition to weight loss treatments, there are many other steps you can take at home that can help you get to the weight you desire, and many of them are quite simple. Some of the best exercise-free weight loss tips we have to offer include:
- Portion control
Your portion is the amount of food you put on your plate, rather than a serving, which is the exact amount of food you eat. Using portion control for weight loss basically involves using smaller dishes at meals and serving food in the proper amounts. There are many factors that will affect how portion control affects your weight loss journey. Some of these factors include your starting size and your individual eating plan, and each person’s ideal eating plan will be different based on their body’s needs.
- Proper amounts of protein and fiber in the diet
Protein is an essential nutrient for weight loss. If you get enough protein, it can boost your metabolism, reduce your appetite, and help you lose body fat without losing muscle. It also helps you avoid over-eating, which can contribute to your weight loss journey. The proper amount of protein that an individual needs varies on a case-by-case basis, but according to the Dietary Reference Intake report for macronutrients, a sedentary adult should consume .36 grams per pound of body weight. Being sure to incorporate fiber into your diet is a simple and effective way to lose weight without exercising as well. A study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine suggested that aiming to eat 30 grams of fiber every day to help you lose weight, lower your blood pressure, and improve your body’s response to insulin as effectively as a more complicated diet would.
- Sufficient sleep
The National Sleep Foundation guidelines advise that healthy adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. Getting enough sleep will lower your risk of serious health problems like diabetes and heart disease, and it can also reduce stress and improve your mood. What many people do not realize is that getting adequate, quality sleep is an essential part of a healthy weight loss plan. Research has shown that losing sleep while dieting can reduce the amount of weight loss and encourage overeating. A particular study done by the University of Chicago found that well-rested people who receive eight and a half hours per night lose more fat weight compared to tired participants who get only five and a half hours of sleep.
