For decades, people have been finding a magical way to lose weight without restricting their calories or working out too much. While this was impossible a long time ago, now, with medical and technological advancements, this can be achieved to a certain level. Weight loss may not be so simple yet but there are various ways that have helped so many people to achieve their body goals. So, if you are looking for ways to lose weight without compromising on your lifestyle choices too much, you have landed on the right article. In this blog post, we will be talking about weight loss and all of the ways that you can do this. Do not forget to read our Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom section of this article. Let’s begin!


Obesity- A Global Ongoing Issue

While we are all worried about COVID, we kind of forgot about other serious medical conditions that can result in death. Obese patients are often limited by their body movement and are also prone to insulin resistance. Most folks who are obese also are in the high risk criteria for coronary heart diseases and several other severe medical conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes.Obesity can also affect one’s confidence, which is a huge aspect of social activities.

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare department, In 2017 to 2018, it was reported that at least 2 in 3 (67%) Australians aged 18 and over were overweight or obese. In other words, the number is close to 12.5 million adults.

Can you imagine that number today? While being obese and overweight is different, weight gain can creep up on us. The best way is to be ahead and make weight loss a priority.



What Causes Obesity?

The general consensus tends to lean towards over consumption of food intake, especially if the food consumed are fats and sugar. Surplus calories that are not burned will be stored in the body, which will then convert into fat. Lack of physical activity is another leading cause of obesity. Most of us nowadays work from home and are glued to our desks. So, if you are not active enough, you will not be able to burn all the calories that are consumed throughout the day.

For some folks, it could be purely genetics. However, it doesn’t make it impossible to reduce one’s body weight. Lastly, certain medical conditions like Hypothyroidism could lead to obesity. But, there are medications that can help and would not be a hindrance to achieving weight loss.


How Do You Prevent Obesity?

If you are overweight and want to prevent obesity, consider following the tips below:

1. Try to consume a healthy diet

What is a healthy diet? One that is nourishing for your body and a sustainable option for you. Generally, it is best to add more leafy greens and protein, while keeping the amount of fat and carbs on the lesser side. However, do not forget to include healthy fats like avocado, olive oils and grass fed butter. Not all fat sources are your enemy.

2. Eat more fruits

Most of us are afraid to consume fruits because of the natural sugar content in them. But in this case, you can consume low calorie fruits like watermelon, apples and oranges. Fruits have so many vitamins and minerals that the body needs to achieve a healthy body weight.

3. Increase aerobic activities

Upping your cardio can be a great place to start. 30 minutes of daily walking can really make visible changes to your life! And if you want to push yourself slightly further, consider adding weight training into your movement regimen.

4. Understand your family history

This is very important, especially if you are someone who has tried various other ways to lose weight and are still not seeing results. Maybe family genetics may have a role to play. This also helps you to understand other potential medical conditions that run in your family.



Traditional Weight Loss Methods

For years, we have been finding new ways to get rid of excess body weight. Here are some of the traditional methods that has helped for people:

1. Diet and lifestyle changes

This is the first step for everyone. With the calorie deficit concept, you will have to consume fewer calories than you burn. Hence why, nutritionists and doctors encourage a low glycemic diet. Pair this with movement (3 to 4 times a week), most people are able to see results. This works well for folks who gained weight because of overconsumption.

2. Prescribed weight loss drug

Many doctors have prescribed Metformin for patients to lose weight. Metformin is also used to treat pre diabetes. While Metformin can help you lose weight, it does have some side effects. You may feel nausea and have frequent diarrhoea. In most cases, it suppresses appetite, which helps with weight loss. You may also experience bloating and constipation. On the bright side, Metformin treatment will also help with blood sugar control and diabetes management.

While Metformin for weight loss is commonly used, there are some other drugs that are available to help you lose weight. Check with your doctor before consuming any of these medications! The bottom line on Metformin and weight loss is that it can be useful, but it does come with an array of side effects that may be inconvenient for people.

Surgical Weight Loss Methods

Although there are effective weight loss pill options available, it may not promote weight loss for some people. Hence why, obese people often consider surgical methods.

Here are two common surgeries that are done for weight loss:

1. Bariatric surgery

There are various versions of this surgery. The most common one is the restrictive surgery. How this works is by reducing the size of your stomach, which will inevitably lead to weight loss. However, do note that people have relapsed and added on more weight prior to the surgery. This solely depends on the patient’s discipline to consume less food.

2. Adjustable gastric surgery

This surgery is relatively newer compared to bariatric surgery. The operating surgeon will insert an inflatable band. This is done to squeeze the stomach into two parts, a smaller upper section and a larger lower part. These two parts will be connected through a small channel. This dramatically reduces the amount of food consumed. Doctors also encourage people to consume foods that are soft and chewable.

From this, we can tell that the downside of these methods would require the patient to sacrifice their eating habits, which in most cases, are not the most sustainable weight loss approach!



Non Surgical Weight Loss Methods

While the diabetes prevention program outcomes study shows that Metformin or lifestyle intervention can help you lose weight, it may not be for everyone! Hence why it is always important to do your research before making a decision.

Here are two non surgical ways to lose weight:

1. Laser fat loss treatment

This laser treatment is super helpful for losing weight in stubborn areas of the body. The heat from the laser device will dissolve the fat cells, which will then be drained out through the lymphatic system.

Perfect Laser Clinics offer the S6 Body Sculpting Treatment which can help you lose weight in stubborn areas. Our treatment relies on the powerful bio-laser energy waves to achieve this! This treatment is non-invasive and can also help with the sagging skin post weight loss.

2. Cryolipolysis aka fat freezing

Fat freezing or known as cryolipolysis, is now a crowd favourite treatment for reducing weight. The reason why this treatment is so popular is because people will not gain back the weight that is lost through cryolipolysis. This treatment is also pain free and non-invasive, which is very suitable for folks with diabetes. How this works is cool waves are emitted from the device, which will then freeze the fat cells at a very low temperature. These fat cells will come out as toxins through the lymphatic system.

Perfect Laser Clinics offers the CoolShaping Fat Freezing treatment. Our treatment is pain free and non-invasive and can promise long lasting results!


Benefits of Our CoolShaping Fat Freezing Treatment

The reason why this treatment in particular is a crowd favourite is because of the results it promises and the process of the treatment. While taking Metformin will support weight loss, it has long term side effects. Metformin for weight loss may have been a popular way many years ago but now, thanks to technological advancements, we no longer have to rely on weight loss drugs or risky surgical procedures.

There are so many benefits to our fat freezing treatment:

1. Spot reduction

This cannot be achieved with weight training but our CoolShaping Fat Freezing treatment will help to define your body’s natural shape. Most of our clients eat a relatively healthy diet and include some movement and pair this with our treatment. They are satisfied with the results because they can see a difference in the areas that are hard for them to lose weight.

2. Permanently say goodbye to your fat!

This is a very important part of any weight loss treatment you select. Most of them will require you to depend on it, like Metformin for example. Taking Metformin can help with insulin sensitivity but if you stop taking it, you may gradually add on the weight that you have lost by bringing down the insulin levels. With our CoolShaping treatment, you will not have to worry about this. Since the amount of fat cells in the body is fixed, the treated fat cells will not regenerate. Your unwanted fat is now gone once and for all!

3. No downtime needed

This is the best part about our treatment! Unlike surgical options, you will need to be resting for weeks. With our CoolShaping treatment, you can go back to doing your activities like normal. The most common side effect is redness and mild swelling on treated areas. However, these will go off within 48 hours of the treatment.
