(ThyBlackMan.com) While it may be hard to believe, some people with a slender built have body fat that they find undesirable. Sometimes it is extremely difficult to shed this body fat without medical means. Even if you spent weeks fasting and month’s diet, the excess fat just does not seem to go away. Thankfully, there is a solution that has proven to target areas of fat, by eradicating the fat cells. This procedure is known as CoolSculpting, which does not involve open surgery.

Know How Fat Loss Works

Anytime sometimes talks about the fat loss they are actually referring to cutting or losing body fat. When you want to cut out body fat your main goal is to increase and speed up the lipolysis process. The lipolysis process is basically a biological process in which the body breaks down the fats that you eat and the fats that are stored in the body. This process takes place in the mitochondria of the muscles. This should explain why individuals with more muscles are able to burn more fatty tissue than individuals without muscles. Scientific research over the years has shown that exercise can really boost the lipolysis process and this is why working out really helps your shred that unwanted body fat.

CoolSculpting

As mentioned above, CoolSculpting works by targeting, reducing and eradicating fat cells. This non-invasive procedure utilizes controlled cooling to freeze (crystalize) the fat cells hidden underneath the skin. The frozen cells will eventually die, resulting in reduced fat.

Liposuction

Liposuction is an invasive procedure that targets unwanted fat in the belly, buttocks, hips, face, upper arms and thighs. While this procedure works extremely well to reduce fat, qualified candidates must be within 30 percent of their ideal weight, have elastic, firm skin and a nonsmoker. Recovery time can take up to two months, but most people are released to go back to work after two weeks.

It is important to note that liposuction is not without risks and it is not a non-surgical fat reduction option. However, it is an effective fat reduction option for individuals who believe they are healthy enough to undergo the procedure without complications.

Water Loss Is Not Weight Loss

Have you ever wondered why most people have success with diets, but usually end up gaining that weight back? And, most times they don’t just gain the weight back they lost they gain more. Well, this has a lot to do with the fact that most diets call for a reduction in carbs. Carbs are highly known for containing as much as three times of water as any other macronutrient. So, when you cut out carbs you are pretty much just cutting out water weight. Sure, when you jump on the scale it is going to make it looking like you are losing weight, but you are pretty much just losing water.

This will not only affect the metabolic rate of the body, but it can shrink your muscles as well. Muscles are made up of seventy percent water, and when you cut out all that water, you are pretty much shrinking your muscles. When your metabolic rate is thrown out of whack it means that your body won’t be able to burn calories and fat as efficient and effective as it did before and this is why most individuals gain more weight after partaking in one of these types of diets.
