Thanksgiving and Liposuction: How to Make Them Go Together
Turkey and stuffing. Butter and rolls, Pie and whipped cream. All of these things go together but two things that don’t? Thanksgiving and your new liposuction results...until now, anyway. If you recently got liposuction from Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, your results are worth showing off at the Thanksgiving table, but the fear of extra calories may make you feel like you don’t want to leave the house. By enjoying a long walk beforehand and filling up on fresh ingredients, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday with your family.
Walk It Out
There’s no real way around it: you’re likely to eat a few more calories on Thanksgiving day than you would on any other day of the year. Rather than feeling down or nervous about it, make sure that you keep moving all day long. We encourage our liposuction patients to continue with a consistent workout routine after surgery to maintain results. Take your workout routine into Thanksgiving and gather friends and family for a long morning walk. Getting your heart rate up and burning calories will help you keep off extra weight.
Your eyes are bigger than your stomach—, especially on Thanksgiving. A good rule of thumb for this big holiday? Avoid big plates altogether and use a small plate instead. This little tip will prevent you from filling up too much.
Fill Up On Fresh Ingredients
Ditch the marshmallow covered sweet potatoes and make some fresh green beans instead. Thanksgiving tables are traditionally filled with calorie and fat loaded side dishes which make them your weight loss journey’s worst nightmare. Encourage your friends and family to trade out the traditional casseroles for fresh vegetables instead— that way you can fill up on the healthy stuff without worrying about the extra weight gain.
Don’t let Thanksgiving be your torture device and use these tips.
