We’ve all been there. We’re adamant about losing weight and then something derails our plans: a cookie at the office that turns into daily cookies, consistent bad days, or simply because life gets in the way. What starts as an excellent plan often times does not work out not only because you have a hard time sticking with your goals, but also because you may have a more difficult time losing weight. If you struggle with health conditions like having an under-active thyroid, are immobilized due to an injury, or have another condition that makes it difficult to lose weight, don’t be so hard on yourself. Everyone’s body is different, and not everyone may respond to dieting and exercising in the same way. If you’re not successful with losing weight here are a few ideas:
Trick Your Body
You read that right. It’s time to trick your body. You can do this by switching up your exercising routine. Are you doing the stair-stepper at the gym every single day? Switch over to the treadmill or the elliptical. Switch off your form of exercising and this may be just what your body needs to “get confused” and start burning extra calories. Don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t happen overnight, however. Continue to try different workouts until you slowly begin to see an improvement.
Try Cool Sculpting
If you currently have a thyroid disorder or another health condition you should first consult with your physician, but for many people a FDA approved form of coolsculpting can be very effective. This non-surgical way of losing weight helps by getting rid of annoying bulges of stubborn fat. There’s more good news too: Coolsculpting may be just what you need to kick start your health plan and help you stick with a plan to keep your weight under wraps. If the issues are not so much your body but you needing a frame of mind to eat healthy and exercise more often, in addition to coolsculpting in Michigan services offered at Clarkston Dermatology, sometimes a little help like this will get you on your way.
Go to a Nutritionist
If you’ve never been great at eating healthy foods and don’t understand everything there is to know about cooking food that’s good for you, perhaps going to a nutritionist would be a good idea. A nutritionist can come up with a plan to help you eat healthier foods and will also be willing to work with your current health conditions. They’ll also offer tips and will be there for you when you’re struggling, encouraging you to press on and achieve your health goals so you can lose weight.
