Getting a body contouring procedure like liposuction gives you a free pass to have more cheat days than on days, right? Unfortunately, although liposuction will help you get rid of some stubborn, unwanted fat, it’s still important for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle. To help you stay on track and ensure that you keep any extra weight off, let’s take a closer look at some foods that you should add to your post-liposuction diet.
Yes, you don’t need a lot of fat but you do need to eat some healthy fats like lean meats, avocado, and nuts. But what does fat actually do? The right kinds of fats can be converted into energy, help with cell function and growth, and can even help your brain and nerves perform on a better level. When you are choosing healthy fats, just make sure that you aren’t consuming too many of them and that you are eating the right kinds.
If you want to accentuate your body contouring procedure results then make sure that you are eating enough lean protein every day. Lean protein like turkey and chicken are a great way to help your body build muscle and maintain it.
If you’re going to make one big dietary change as part of your post liposuction dietary plan, then make it to drink more water. Water is not only calorie free but it helps you burn more calories, and it may also suppress your appetite if you drink enough of it before meals. Plus, by replacing sugary drinks with water, you can cut down on your caloric consumption and keep weight off that way.
Living a healthy lifestyle after you have liposuction doesn’t have to be difficult, but it can require some habit changes. If you want to learn more about liposuction or how to maintain your liposuction results call Dr. Rick Silverman at (617) 965-9500.
