Being unhappy with the appearance of your body can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, your confidence, and your overall satisfaction with life. Lumpy and uneven pockets of fat, physically limiting collections of excess skin, and unwanted squishiness can all combine to make a person very dissatisfied with his or her appearance and can even lead to feeling depressed or worthless.
As we approach 2017, maybe the time to take a hard look at your problem areas and figure out just what can be done about them is in order. Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata welcomes an opportunity to help you accomplish this worthwhile and life-changing task.
Where should You Start?
The best place to start a physical and emotional transformation is at home. Choosing healthy foods and eliminating simple carbs, excess meat, and sugar from your diet will not only help tone your body, it will set the foundation for a longer and healthier life. What’s more, cooking with nutrient rich whole foods often opens up a world of culinary delights that can intrigue and entice, making dietary changes fun as well as healthy.
Exercising at least 90 minutes every week is absolutely essential for perfecting your body. Optimally, you should aim for three hours of exercise a week, with 90 minutes being vigorous and more intense. However, if 90 minutes is all you can spare, make it count. The heart rate you are shooting for is 220 minus your age. Your ideal heart rate for fat loss is 70% of that number. Keep your heart rate there through cardio, but don’t forget strength training and stretching as well.
