Getting rid of the belly bulge is no easy task. Even with diet and exercise, excess fat cells in the stomach can still linger even when other areas of the body slim down. If you’ve been struggling to lose belly fat but to no avail, it’s time to look at the possible reasons why and how to finally get rid of it.
1. Natural Body Shape
Face it – not all women are going to have that perfect hourglass shape. In fact, women can take on a variety of shapes due to the way fat lies on their unique frame. Women who have the typical ‘apple-shaped’ body often carry more fat around their mid-section.
Apple-shaped women also tend to have thinner arms, legs, and hips, while gaining the bulk of their weight at the waistline.
2. Wrong Workouts
The wrong workouts (or no workouts at all), can make it difficult to lose those excess pounds in the abdominal area. While cardio is key to burning calories and fat, there are a number of exercises designed to target the stomach area.
Crunches, bicycle exercises, lunge twists, and planks are some of the most commonly recommended workouts for men and women looking to lose belly fat.
3. Poor Diet Choices
What you eat can have a major impact on your ability to lose belly fat. Diets high in sugar, fat, and carbs can make it more difficult to lose those excess pounds and can also make you feel tired and unmotivated.
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to give your diet a total makeover. Cut out the ‘bad’ foods and add more fruits, veggies, and whole grains to your meals.
4. Natural Aging Process
As you age, the body tends to accumulate fat cells. Excess fat tends to collect in certain places of the body, such as the belly. While you can’t stop the aging process, you can rely on non-innovative treatments to get rid of stubborn fat around your middle.
Treatments for Belly Fat
Want to know how to lose belly fat in a safe, effective way without surgery?
Vanquish and Cryolipolysis are safe fat removal procedures that work to safely reduce stubborn belly fat for a slimmer abdomen.
Vanquish is an FDA-cleared fat reduction technology that works by heating up fat cells in the stomach and waist areas. Vanquish uses a first of its kind “no-contact” applicator that emits safe radiofrequency energy to selectively heat up the fat layer which results to natural cell death known as apoptosis.
Once heated, the fat cells die and are removed from the body through the lymphatic system. And since fat is more resistant to heat, it can absorb more heat energy which further promotes fat cell death resulting in noticeable waistline circumference reduction.
Cryolipolysis works similarly to Vanquish to remove fat cells from the body but instead of using heat, Cryolipolysis uses on cold temperature. Z Lipo and CoolSculpting procedure in Singapore are two of the well-known and proven fat freezing procedure in the market.
These fat freezing procedures uses suction applicators that provide safe controlled cooling to target pockets of fat under the skin and freezes them until they die. Just like with Vanquish, the dead fat cells are expelled through the body.
The full results will be seen within a 60 – 90 day window. You will notice that your clothes fit better and your waist is noticeably slimmer.
Although you may think of these treatments as non-surgical liposuction, it is important to take note that the results are gradual as it takes time for your body to eliminate the dead fat cells. While you may not get the same intense and immediate results as lipo, you can achieve a noticeable reduction in belly fat without the risks of surgery or long recovery time.
