Lipo Maintenance: How to Avoid Gaining Weight This Thanksgiving
- Posted on: Nov 15 2017
Liposuction can feel like a magical spell was cast on you from no other than Harry Potter himself. Although liposuction can help you get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat, it still requires some upkeep on your end— including regular exercise and a lean diet. With Thanksgiving looking like the dining hall at Hogwarts, however, it can feel almost impossible to stick to a healthy diet. Luckily, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley has a few tips for you to use.
Don’t Restrict Yourself Too Much
Although you don’t want to go into Thanksgiving full force and eat everything in site, you also don’t need to completely restrict yourself. Remember that moderation is the key to a healthy, successful diet. For instance, rather than having second helpings and dessert, only have one helping and a small piece of pie without whipped cream or ice cream— a few small changes can make a big difference in how many calories you consume on Thanksgiving.
Start the Day With a Walk or Run
A Turkey Trot or a Turkey Day 5k is a great way to start off your Thanksgiving— and they will help you burn off extra calories in the process. Gather up a large group of your close friends and family and hit the ground running on Thanksgiving morning— you won’t regret it!
Try Small Plates
Your mom was right when she said, “Your eyes are bigger than your stomach.” Eating smaller portions is one of the best ways to feel fuller faster and not overeat— especially on turkey day! Rather than filling up your entire plate with a bunch of meat, potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and your aunt’s famous jello salad (yikes!), try getting small portions of everything— your pallet and your stomach will feel satisfied.
