If you are one of the millions of people suffering from a flabby belly, you are probably interested in knowing how to reduce belly fat naturally. After all, no one wants to be self-conscious about their physical appearance. This is particularly true if you are already at a healthy weight but have just started to notice that your belly is not as trim as it once was. There are many treatments on the market to help you get rid of that belly fat but not all of them work the same way or produce the same results. Before you spend your hard-earned money on an ineffective treatment method, take some time to learn about the different natural belly fat reduction methods that are available to you.
Non-Invasive Procedure Thermal Body Fat Extraction (T FBEX) This proven and safe non-invasive procedure is ideal for people who want to reduce their tummy fat but do not wish to risk surgery. This procedure involves gently heating your body fat through the use of infrared heat. The resulting heat is then absorbed by the fatty layers of your skin, where it will break down the fat in your stomach. Although this treatment can help you reduce stomach fat, it is very important to note that this type of surgery is only recommended for people who do not have a history of obesity or diabetes.
Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) This minimally invasive surgical treatment is also ideal for those who would like to reduce belly fat but are concerned about increased risk of heart disease. ETS uses advanced technology to remove excess fat from your abdomen by conducting a surgical procedure under the skin using thin rods. Unlike T FBEX, there is an increased risk of developing infections in your abdomen. This surgery can also lead to a significant amount of bruising, swelling, and pain. Although there is a small increased risk of developing infections, most people report that the discomfort and pain post-procedure is minor.
Liposuction Surgical Treatment The most popular surgery used to reduce belly fat includes liposuction. A slender tube called a cannula is introduced into each nostril. It then squeezes out the unwanted fats and blood through this cannula. The other side effect of liposuction treatment is the bruising. It is usually recommended to wear a support garment for several days following the treatment.
Carbohydrate Restriction Diet/Carbs Shifting to a low-carb, high-fiber diet is another way to reduce belly fat loss. Research has shown that people who consume more refined carbs (white bread, rice, pasta, etc.) have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Therefore, replacing refined carbs with whole grain foods can greatly reduce your risk of developing this disease.
Resistance Training one of the few proven methods to reduce belly fat and gain weight is resistance training. In recent studies, resistance training was shown to increase lean muscle mass, which in turn helps you to lose more body weight. Resistance training was also shown to increase metabolism, which leads to fat burning.
CoolSculpting Procedure The last method I will discuss is coolsculpting. This procedure is done in a hospital or clinical setting. The coolsculpting technician will sculpt your abdomen by placing springs in strategic areas. You can expect to feel a slight pinch when you first put on the compression garment but it should not be a major problem. This procedure should only take about an hour to two hours depending on how fast you lose your weight.
These are three of the most common types of treatments used to reduce belly fat. If you are looking to find a treatment that works well, consider all of your options before deciding which procedure is best for you. A healthy lifestyle and exercise program are always key to losing weight and staying fit. I highly recommend that you include a combination of each of these treatment options to achieve optimal results.
