Sagging Skin! 5 Smooth Sailing Weight Loss Tips
Loose, sagging skin accompanied with white horrible stretch marks is the most obvious result of dramatic weight loss. Experts opine that when the body begins to lose fat quickly, the skin scrambles in order to adjust to the physical conditions and as a result becomes excessively loose.
Researchers are of the opinion that gradual and steady weight loss may contribute to the less shrinking of the skin. This however, may clash with our psychological needs to lose weight faster than required.
5 Smooth Sailing Weight Loss Tips
Listed below are some ways to get rid of crumpling or sagging skin both before and after a dramatic weight loss scenario:
Set Smaller Targets:
Do not focus on losing more than 3-5 lbs of weight in a week.
Start with cardio exercises (30 minutes 3 times a week).
Mix Weight Training With Cardio:
Train harder to reduce or to prevent sagging of the skin around the abdomen. Perform sit ups to avoid the same.
If saggy skin could not be avoided then approach a plastic surgeon to remove the loose skin from your body.
Tummy Tuck or Lift:
Most obese people who lose weight dramatically go for the tummy lift or tummy tuck surgery to get rid of the sagging skin.
In addition, while you’re training to shed the fat, target on building the muscles than on losing the fat. If the muscles are lost by way of quick dieting solutions like crash diets, etc then the body will not be able to burn fat effectively.
Moreover, all that you’ll be left with is a scrawny body which neither looks attractive nor feels healthy. So build muscles to burn fat gradually and remember to stick to a healthy diet plan (full of nutrients) for optimum weight loss and for taut, firm and healthy skin.
