Bouncing Back: The Top Tips for Getting Back in Shape After Giving Birth

Bouncing Back: Top Tips for Getting Back in Shape After Giving Birth

The average woman gains approximately 25 to 35 lbs during her pregnancy. While a lot of this weight is gone when the baby is born, there is still some weight to be lost after delivery. Getting back in shape after having a baby can help you feel like you have gained back control of your body.

First off, congratulations, you just delivered a miracle! You should feel proud of what your body just produced, and ready for the joys of being with your baby outside of the womb.

All that aside, most women tend to claim that they want to lose their post-pregnancy fat and feel in shape again.

While some of this fat is essential for breastfeeding, there is some weight that is safe to lose. So, the question is, how do we bounce back after delivering a baby and lose those unwanted pounds safely?

Keep reading to learn everything about getting back in shape after having a baby.

Breastfeeding

Yes, you read that right! Depending on how much breast milk you are producing, breastfeeding can burn an average of 500-800 calories per day! Now you probably understand why your body wants to hold on to that fat after delivery.

Some women can drop most of their baby fat from breastfeeding alone! Be very careful about following a diet at this time, as you need those calories to keep your baby nourished. Focus on eating nutrient dense foods and you will be fine.

Exercise With Your Baby

By bringing your baby along with you while you exercise, you are able to stick to your exercise plan and not feel guilty about being away from your baby.

There are many fitness classes for new moms to include their babies. Look up a mom and baby fitness class near you and you will have no problem getting back in shape!

Meet Other New Moms

One of the most commonly discussed topics between new moms is how they are feeling about their post-pregnancy bodies. Of course, we need to keep our beauty in line, so ask them if they want to be your exercise partner!

This is the perfect time to meet other new moms, go for walks, and exercise together with your babies in the park.

Be Gentle With Yourself

Remember that your body just delivered a baby, your hormones are all over the place and you are probably exhausted from lack of sleep.

When you are feeling those moments of guilt with the weight gain, take a step back and acknowledge what your body just created.

Get Some Rest

Lack of sleep is linked to high cortisol in the body, high cortisol leads to the inability to lose fat. With a newborn baby, chances are you are not sleeping well at night.

When at all possible, put yourself down for a nap along with your baby. Forget about the laundry, you can do that later. This is your time to rejuvenate.

Essential Tips for Staying Fit and Healthy

Essential Tips for Staying Fit and Healthy

71% of people want to eat healthier, while 65% want to exercise more.

However, only 8% of people successfully achieve their New Year’s resolutions. So, how can you make sure that in 2019 you stay in good shape?

Get started by reading our tips on how to stay fit and healthy this year.

1. The 30-Minutes Exercise Challenge

Many Americans claim that they would like to exercise more, but they simply don’t have enough time in their day.

And yet, around 84% watch over 3 hours of television per day. It’s safe to say that everyone can find 30-minutes per day to be physically active and exercise.

It’s easy to remember and possible to achieve. You can even integrate your 30-minutes into your daily routine.

Can you spend your lunch break at a yoga class? Can you ride a bike to work?

Yes, even taking the stairs rather than the elevator counts towards physical activity.

2. Stay Hydrated 

Over 80% of working Americans don’t drink enough water. Are you staying hydrated?

If you’re going to do more exercise this year, then it’s especially important to drink more fluids.

You can also drink decaffeinated tea if you want to add more flavor to your drinks. This also allows you to enjoy the many health benefits of tea.

3. Healthy and Balanced Diet

We are always told that you should eat a healthy and balanced diet. But what exactly is a healthy diet? You don’t need to follow any of the crash diets that claim you can lose weight quickly.

Over 95% of weight loss diets fail.

Just make sure your diet consists of a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

There are also a number of health benefits to reducing your meat consumption. Try out the various vegetarian or vegan diets.

4. Get a Good Night’s Sleep

One of the best things you can do for your overall health is to sleep well.

We know that 1 in 3 Americans say that they don’t get enough sleep. On average, you should be getting between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night.

If you’re not getting the right amount of sleep, then you need to change your sleeping habits.

Go back to having a regular bedtime and wake-up time every night. It is also important to avoid drinking coffee or caffeinated drinks before you go to sleep.

5. Mindful Meditation

Mindful meditation is the practice of sitting still and focusing on your breath.

The practice has been connected to multiple health benefits.  Some of the benefits include relieving the symptoms of stress and strengthening your ability to concentrate.

If you want to stay healthy and fit this year, sometimes sitting still and relaxing for a while is the best thing you can do.

Ring in the New Year! Why Your Spa Should Offer an Endermologie Treatment in 2019

Offer Endermologie Treatments in 2019

Cellulitis is an unpleasant side effect of aging and weight gain for many men and women.

Cellulite is caused by fat cells beneath the skin, which trap toxins and hold in water. Luckily, the FDA has recently approved a treatment that can help treat (but not get rid of) cellulite.

Endermologie is a cellulite treatment that uses a mechanical massage to increase circulation and make the skin firmer, temporarily reducing cellulite. As it was only recently approved by the FDA, endermologie is not yet widely offered.

Here’s why your spa should offer endermologie treatment in 2019.

Improve Client Confidence

Cellulitis is a skin condition that many people around the world have and are looking to get rid of, so they can increase their body confidence.

This is a great opportunity to help improve your client’s confidence in their body’s.

As a spa, you already provide services that help to relieve tension and improve wellness. With endermologie, you are providing a treatment that can keep your patients feeling good. And, who better to make feel good than new mothers, who are among the most common endermologie patients!

Increase Client Loyalty

Most patients receiving endermologie treatments will do up to 6-10 treatments for an hour at a time, taking place over several months. These constant client returns should be music to your ears, as returning clients mean a great investment.

You may even be able to increase your overall revenue with your clients continuously coming back for treatments. With endermologie being a relatively affordable process, your customers may look to pursue other services that will help them feel even better, driving up sales for your spa.

Help Relaxation

If you’re looking to sell relaxation as part of your spa experience, endermologie is a must-have for you. With the deep tissue massage that an endermologie treatment uses, your clients will be especially relaxed compared to other treatments.

Potential for Packaging

While endermologie is typically a treatment that is offered on its own, it has huge packaging potential. You can offer endermologie treatments along with other services you may have. You can easily use endermologie to fit into a stress-reduction or body-positivity theme.

Exciting Novel Idea

Endermologie is a new trend that was only recently approved by the FDA but has been used in other countries for many years. There is no doubt that the market for it will soon take off.

It’s best to be ahead of the curve where you can, and endermologie is a terrific opportunity for that.

Incorporating Endermologie Treatment at Your Spa

If your spa doesn’t already offer endermologie treatment, you should jump on the trend soon! It will benefit your clients’ well-being and will make sure that your spa is better off. Endermologie’s potential is unmatched as it is a proven solution for a problem so many people have.

If you’re looking to incorporate endermologie treatment in your spa, be sure to contact us!

The 5 Biggest Myths About Cellulite Debunked

reduce cellulite

From a young age, we are taught that cellulite is ‘bad’ and that we can work it off or get rid of it by using the latest, greatest, and newest creams, diets, or exercise. This couldn’t be further from the truth!

We’re going to take a look into the truth about cellulite to find out what these common myths are and where they come from. Keep reading for more information!

Being Overweight Causes Cellulite

This is an amusing assumption. Although people that are overweight tend to show more cellulite, having it doesn’t relate to weight at all.

Slim, athletic models and professional sports players can all have cellulite. However, because of their diets and exercise regimens, the problem is less noticeable.

It comes down to the fact that the more fat on someone’s body, the more likely it is to put stress on connective tissues and bulge out.

There is a Secret Cream to Get Rid of Cellulite

Unfortunately, there is no cream in the world (yet) that will completely get rid of your cellulite problem. There is evidence that suggests creams containing retinoids help with the appearance–but that is all they do–help.

Retinoids will cause the skin to become thicker which will help reduce the appearance of cellulite but not actually get rid of it.

Clothing Will Permanently Reduce Cellulite

There are all sorts of clothing companies on the market that advertise to women (and men) clothes that will ‘help get rid of cellulite.’ While it is true that compression clothing will help for a time, it does not actually remove or permanently reduce this problem.

Truth be told, when compression clothes are constantly worn, they can have the opposite effect on cellulite. The reduction of blood flow may increase the appearance of this annoying issue.

Detoxification Will Reduce Cellulite

There is no real proof that ‘toxins’ cause or worsen cellulite. Choosing to spend money on these treatments may only offer disappointing results. Cellulite is simply caused by underlying fat deposits pushing through collagen fibers and connective tissue.

This cannot be stopped or prevented by removing ‘toxins’ from the body!

Cardio & Weight Loss to Lose Cellulite

While cardio will help you lose weight which may help reduce the appearance of cellulite, it will not cure it permanently. The best way to smooth skin by working out is strength training!

Strength training may not make you shed pounds as quickly as cardiovascular activities will, but incorporating weight training will help tighten those problem areas.

The Science Behind the Truth About Cellulite

When you are looking for a cure to your cellulite, your best bet is going to be to use a scientific-based method. Choosing science is a much better bet than the hopes and dreams of curing your cellulite.

The truth about cellulite is that it won’t go away on its own and no amount of special cream is going to help. However, if you’re ready for proven results, you are ready to explore how endermologie can help you!

How to Avoid the Thanksgiving Weight Gain

With the holidays fast approaching, you’re likely looking forward to spending some quality time with the family. Gathering around the table and enjoying a massive feast is a time-honored tradition that warms your heart as much as it warms your belly.

But before you reach for that second helping of sweet potato casserole, there’s something you should know. As it turns out, most people gain between seven and 10 pounds throughout the holiday season, meaning it’s all too easy to reverse healthy progress you’ve made throughout the year.

Don’t worry, you can still enjoy a family feast without overdoing it! Here’s a quick guide on what to eat on Thanksgiving without gaining weight.

Load up on Veggies

If your Thanksgiving meal is anything like ours, it probably features dish upon dish of fresh, delicious roasted vegetables.

Well, we have some good news! You can eat as many delicious veggies as you’d like without any of the guilt as long as your veggies aren’t filled with additives like butter and salt.

From Brussels sprouts to green beans to salad, there are tons of tasty ways to fill up without filling out. And not only are baked or roasted veggies tasty, but they’re great for you, too.

Take sweet potatoes, for instance. A single serving of roasted sweet potatoes nets about 180 calories and is chock full of Vitamins A and C, as well as calcium.

Avoid Turkey Terror

Don’t worry, we’re not about to tell you to skip the turkey. In fact, turkey is one of the best possible things to eat on Thanksgiving.

Turkey is full of protein and Vitamin-B 6. When combined with a plate filled with veggies, you have yourself a healthy meal that tastes great, to boot!

Know What to Avoid

Unfortunately, not all Thanksgiving delicacies are as healthy as turkey or vegetables. As a result, there are a few foods you’ll want to avoid.

It’s easy to go overboard on alcoholic beverages, for instance. Try to stick to one or two drinks, as alcohol is filled with a surprising amount of sugar.

Sadly, gravy, stuffing, and canned cranberry sauce are two of the worst offenders, as well. While turkey isn’t quite the same without them, both are loaded with sugars and fat and are ultimately empty calories.

Dessert can be dangerous for those attempting to reduce the appearance of cellulite, too. Have fun and enjoy your pie, but try and take a smaller piece.

Post-Meal Tips

Though most Thanksgiving fare is loaded with tryptophan, a chemical that causes tiredness and fatigue, you’re encouraged to avoid a post-meal nap.

Instead, take a walk around the block with a family member. Moving after a meal is a great way to boost your metabolism and work off any extra calories you ingested.

Book Your endermologie® Appointment

It’s human to feel like you could tone up a little after indulging in delicious foods and wines all weekend. Especially when you still have family in town, it can be hard to keep up your usual workout regimen. It’s no holiday miracle that you can book an endermologie® treatment to help you get back to your pre-thanksgiving body. Extensive research has shown that body endermologie® helps to tone and improve the skin’s radiance, while reducing the appearance of cellulite, so you’ll be sure to be feeling great and refreshed after your post-thanksgiving treatment.

Backed by more than 145 studies, LPG® is the first device ever cleared by the FDA for the reduction in the appearance of cellulite. These studies have proven the following:

Results from the latest body technology scientific study1:

  • 70% increase in fat release (lipolysis)
  • 240% increase in collagen production activation (skin re-densification)

Final Thoughts on What to Eat on Thanksgiving

With these tips on what to eat on Thanksgiving, you can indulge in all of your favorites without going overboard or losing the progress you’ve made with regular endermologie® treatments.
