Shape Up: Fit Back into Your Skinny Jeans!

Lose Fat Fast

Or are you guilty of jumping up and down even just to get your pants up your thighs? Instead of buying a new pair of jeans, you decide to adjust yourself instead. If you want to fit back into your favourite jeans, here are some of the ways you can do it.

Sneak a snack before meals

Did you know that when you eat snacks which contain healthy fats, around 70 calories or fewer, you can already program your body to eat less? Since controlling your portions is a major factor in getting a slimmer waist, it helps to have something that triggers your body to do it especially since most of us struggle with our own willpower to diet.

A handful of nuts, a spoonful of olive oil, or even a few slices of avocado will already be enough. These contain monounsaturated fats which activates grehlin, a hormone that tells your body that it is full.

Dial down the sweetness

If you want to grab another bite off that cake, why don’t you think of the extra inch you are not losing. If you are born with a sweet tooth, this can be quite challenging. But it helps to know that eating as low as zero grams of sugar can make it possible for you reduce that waistline much faster.

Researchers found the direct correlation between increased sugar intake and obesity.  Reducing your sugar intake will also stimulate your body to increase glucagon levels which is a hormone that helps maintain a trimmed belly.

Avoid diet sodas

Just because it says “diet” doesn’t necessarily mean it is good for you. Today studies are saying that these diet soft drinks are no healthy alternatives for the regular stuff. In a ten year study of individuals who are over 65 year old, it was found that there is a direct relations between the daily consumption of diet soft drinks to the size of your waistline. Many are lured to believe that this will be less harmful to the body but in reality, daily drinkers actually gained 8 centimeters of belly fat, compared to the 2 centimeters for non drinkers and 4.6 for occasional drinkers.

What is more alarming is that the belly fat is linked to high levels of visceral fats, or fats that form around internal organs. This can result in serious metabolic diseases such as diabetes. So why not just steer clear from all fizzy drinks entirely not only to keep a flatter belly, but a healthier body too!

Squeeze the fats off

A good belly busting tip from one of Hollywood’s most beautiful bodies, Jessica Alba, is to wear and elastic corset for two months. She reveals that she initially did not wear it to slim her waist but to help relieve her chronic back problem.

But she also said that wearing these corsets or elastic garments which is fastened with a Velcro or with hooks, helped tuck in the post baby belly. Not just because she is Jessica Alba, a beauty goddess blessed with a sexy body, but a lot of women claim that girdles and corsets speed up the healing process of the abdominal muscles after pregnancy.

Get moving

The basics of getting rid excess weight in the body is to exercise. We could not stress its importance enough, even with its aesthetic effect aside. It is the healthiest way to burn the extra calories that can turn into fats that settles around your waist. Even if you are running on a busy schedule, putting in at least two hours and thirty minutes a week for moderate aerobic exercise can get those fats burning.

Enroll yourself to a fun and heart pumping Zumba class or core strengthening Pilates sessions. Even with the dramatic effects of surgical procedures, basic exercise together  with a healthy diet is vital in keeping a slimmer waist and hips.

Liposuction

If you want a dramatic outcome, it pays to consider surgical interventions. Liposuction is a surgical treatment where a long and slender cannula is inserted through a small incision made over the problems area to suction out the excess fats. It removes stubborn fats from areas such as the abdomen, back, waist, thighs, and buttocks to name a few.

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells but you also have to maintain a healthy lifestyle if you want to keep that figure. You may cringe at the thought of incisions, but this procedure is actually generally safe with a high success rate, most especially if you get a certified surgeon to perform it.

Tuck it in

If you want to significantly trim your stubborn stomach fats a tummy tuck is also an effective way to achieve this. This procedure is actually one of the common requested surgery for moms who wish to get rid of the post pregnancy belly, and it also slims the waist along the way. In this procedure the surgeon creates a long incisions that runs from one hipbone to the other and surgeon excises the excess fat tissues and sagged skin.

Aside from toning the belly and slimming the waist, this procedure also removes stretchmarks. Not everyone can be considered a good candidate for a tummy tuck this is why you must approach a certified and experienced surgeon to ensure a safe and successful outcome.

A secret in ensuring that these tips will work for you is to muster discipline and commitment. Even with the dramatic improvement provided by surgical treatments, everything takes time and dedication if you want to fit into those jeans!
