How to Avoid Post Liposuction Weight Gain During the Holidays
The holidays are all about spending time with your friends and family and, well, eating. Because eating is at the forefront of most holiday festivities, you may be wondering how you’re going to avoid post-liposuction weight gain. Luckily, Dr. Greenberg at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery has thought ahead and has got you covered. Let’s take a closer look at a few helpful suggestions.
Bring Your Own Snacks
You've heard of college parties that ask you to bring your own beer, but you may have never thought of showing up at a party with your own snacks. Before you head out of your first holiday parties, try packing a bag full of healthy snacks like raw vegetables and fruit slices to snack on; that way you can still eat without worrying about what’s in the food.
Avoid the Alcohol
Yes, in addition to food, liquor is usually the forefront of most holiday parties, but liquor has a lot of added calories and sugar (especially cocktails). To avoid the added calories, try skipping the alcohol altogether and instead just drink more water. If you really need to have a drink though, consider drinking a small glass of red wine because it’s good for your heart and fairly low in calories.
Watch the Sweets
Whether sweets are hiding in your kitchen or the breakroom at your office, try to steer clear of them. Baked sweets contain a lot of excess fat, sugar, and calories; all of which may add to your waistline. Rather than indulging in one of these sweet treats, try reaching for something like a fresh piece of fruit instead.
It can be overwhelming to think about post-liposuction weight gain during the holidays. By using these small, easy steps, you can hopefully avoid any weight gain during this time of year.
