An unprecedent situation has affected most countries, causing mandatory lockdowns for an extensive period, with stores and gyms closing, homeschooling and people working from home.
Gaining Weight During Circuit Breaker
Some people are nervous, anxious, worried or bored as they spend the majority of their time in their homes. Dealing with all these emotions and having access to temptations like food and snacks 24/7 is not ideal, since many would opt for the unhealthy stuff over the recommended portions and calories. The sedentary lifestyle caused by this mandatory circuit breaker and the lack of physical activities may cause an issue among some. Eating is a conscious and voluntary act that is often affected by our state of mind. On the other hand, many times eating something tasty acts in a beneficial way to our mood. When this confinement is over, it is almost inevitable that we will have gained a few extra pounds.
How Does Metabolism Works?
What we eat has two adjustment variables: what we eat and how much we eat. It is not the same to eat a pear than to eat a sausage, nor is it the same to eat one or five pears.
The calories we burn are regulated by two variables: our basal metabolism, which is our ability to metabolize everything we ate yesterday, for example, without making any effort. And the second variable of adjustment is physical exercise. Being realistically transparent in this context means: People are exercising less for different reasons, and not even able to be active in basic activities like walking or constantly moving in their jobs or school since everything is being handled through online sessions or work from home.
For this reason, the reduced daily physical activity is reflected in our body, which will need fewer calories. In fact, our current calorie needs would be close to the basal metabolism if we did not exercise at all. Basal metabolism is the energy we need for the basic vital functions of breathing, digestion and sleep, and it generally corresponds to 60-70% of our daily energy expenditure with moderate physical activity.
Fat Freeze As A Non-invasive Option
While working out at home is recommended, certain non-invasive treatments are definitely going to be a good additional option to get rid of the extra stubborn fats that we may have gained during these months. Such is the case of Fat Freezing, also known as Coolsculpting, which consists of a technique that uses cold to get rid of those hard-to-remove localized fat cells that are even difficult to remove with basic exercise. In the weeks following the treatment, the frozen cells are naturally eliminated.
Each individual has different characteristics on each area of their body. So, make sure to keep that in mind, as you may need more than one session to achieve the desired figure you are looking for.
Results can be noticeable after the second or third week of going through a Fat freezing or CoolSculpting session. As the dead fat cells are eliminated, you will notice how fat loss is even more evident. Between the first and third month after the procedure, you will notice how your body contour has changed and its general appearance has improved.
Coolsculpting in Singapore is incredibly popular for many reasons, even before this circuit breaker started, it was a fan favorite and will for be for sure after aesthetic clinics are opened again to the public.
