How to Lose Stomach Fat without Exercise or Dieting?

Try tummy-control garments. There have never been more options in the undergarment industry for clothing that tighten, firm, and shape the midsection. Made mainstream by Spanx, tummy-control garments are available in many types for people of most sizes.

• Women's undergarments include tummy-control pantyhose, panties, high-waisted shorts, body suits, camisoles, and tank tops made of Lycra, elastic, or some combination. Most mainstream undergarment brands for women carry control top styles, but the most popular include Spanx, Soma, and TC Shaping. Buy your normal size and expect it to run small.

Take advantage of current trends in corseting and waist training. This method involves wearing a binding garment across the abdomen. If done in moderation, corseting can create a thinner silhouette without any other lifestyle changes.

• Some celebrities swear by corseting as a weight loss mechanism, and although doctors say it won't actually help you lose fat cells, it can help you lose weight by cinching in your stomach as you eat so that you don't have as much room to overeat. In addition, the fat cell can expand or shrink, according to how much fat it is storing.

• Be careful about wearing these too tight or too frequently. Because they can reduce your stomach capacity, you might vomit after eating even a normal sized meal. They can also contribute to heartburn and compress your organs. 

• Purchase your corset at a store with knowledgeable sales staff, who can help you fit it correctly and learn to lace it appropriately so that it is not too tight.

Consider a body wrap. Body wraps are spa treatments that claim to detoxify and slim the midsection. With training, these can also be done at home. While the process can vary, most involve several steps and the application of several types of body products. 

• The aestheticism will start by massaging and applying a body scrub to your midsection, which will then be rinsed in a shower. The body scrub will contain a variety of herbs and minerals thought to cleanse the skin of impurities and reduce the appearance of fat or cellulite.

• The body will then be rubbed with a lotion or oil containing other emollients and properties.

• Next, the midsection will be securely wrapped in linen, plastic, or thermal sheets, and then an electric heated blanket will be used to warm the body for about 30 minutes, which will cause sweating. This step in particular is thought to remove impurities and reduce the appearance of fat.

• After removing the blanket and wraps, the midsection will be massaged again to increase blood flow.

• While this process is not supported for weight loss, many clients feel that it reduces the appearance of stomach fat and cellulite, especially with repeated treatments. Due to the sweating process (and loss of water weight), it is not uncommon for clients to experience a loss of a couple of inches, although this will be temporary.

Reduce your water weight. The body can retain water for various reasons, giving a bloated appearance particularly around the waist. Reducing water weight will temporarily slim the waistline. 

• Hydrate. In many cases, water retention is the body's effort to prevent dehydration when you are not taking in enough water per day. This is especially true in hotter months. Be sure you are drinking at least eight 8-oz glasses of hydrating fluids a day (or 2 liters), which will help flush out your system and reduce bloating and puffiness.

World Obesity Day - 11th October!

World Obesity day - 11th October (Spread the Word & join the drive against Obesity) Slimming down by Bariatric Surgery

A lifetime of Health by Bariatric surgery

Every bariatric weight loss procedure is based on individual need. No two patients are alike, yet they all share a common bond. It’s the question: “What will my life be like after surgery?” Bariatric surgery is not a magical cure for weight loss, or to eliminate comorbidities, but it is definitely a foundation for a longer, healthier life. Considering the many health consequences associated with obesity, bariatric surgery is a wonderful option. It not only can change a life, it can save it. The biggest challenge patients face after surgery is breaking old habits and establishing new ones. Habits formed over time, regarding diet and exercise, can make a difference between a positive or negative outcome. Quality of life after surgery requires a lifelong commitment by the patient.

Negative Thoughts About Your Body - How To Manage It?

Negative Thoughts About Your Body - How To Manage It?

Today, most people’s perception of a beautiful woman is a tall, slim, fair skinned woman. However, not everyone is built with such a physique but still have a beauty of their own. As they say, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and if you think you are beautiful then that confidence will indeed give you the grace and elegance to be noticed. Sadly, we tend to focus more on the social perception of beauty and tend to find faults with ourselves as we try to fit into that mould. These constant negative thoughts lead to the development of emotions that range from discontentment to depression and hence are extremely unhealthy. Here are a few tips to help break out of this negative cycle:

  1. Look Out For Thinking Errors- Most people with a negative self-image tend to think along a few common lines. Recognise these thinking errors and try avoiding them to build a more positive self-image. This includes thinking only in extremes, magnifying things, turning emotions into reasons etc. Realise that thinking negatively makes it more difficult for you to achieve your goals or what you want out of life. Recognising these patterns is the first step towards accepting yourself and building your self-confidence.

  2. Stop Making Comparisons- From early childhood, we begin comparing ourselves with others. As we get older, we compare our self-image with what we see on magazine covers and billboards. Even though we know they have been digitally enhanced, we still aspire to look like them. However, each person’s physique is different and it is not possible for everyone to look like a model.

  3. Recognise Your Strengths- You may have heavy hips but at the same time, you also may have beautiful eyes. Focus on the parts of your body that you love and each time you find yourself complaining about your self-image, remind yourself of these parts. Be grateful for what you have instead of sinking into a victim syndrome.

  4. Look Out For Triggers- Find out what triggers negative thoughts in you and stay away from them for a while. For some people, this may be in the form of magazines while for others it may be certain TV shows or even the company they keep. Surround yourself with positive imagery and positive people who will support you and uplift you instead of simply sympathising with you and letting you believe that you are a victim.

Running - 7 Things You Must Know Before You Go For It!

Running - 7 Things You Must Know Before You Go For It!

Running is proven to be one of the most efficient forms of exercise as it has a ton of benefits attached to it. For instance, running helps you in maintaining your body weight by cutting down that unwanted or extra body fat, and helps in keeping you slim and trim. It also aids in improving your metabolism. Regular exercising will keep you energised, and increase your stamina.

Before starting with this physical activity, there are certain things you should know about. These are:

  1. Be patient: Patience is key! Now, we all know that that nothing can change in a day. You won't notice any signs of improvement on the first day. So, the best thing to do is work out every single day with dedication, and you'll notice the results in a month or so.
  2. Be Comfortable: It is very necessary to feel comfortable before you start your exercise. If you are going to run with your high heels or slippers on, it's never going to work out. So, it is very important to dress in your most comfortable attire before you start running.
  3. Eat well: A healthy diet packed with all the essential nutrients is an absolute must if you plan to take up running as a regular exercise. Do not starve yourself at any cost or skip any meal. Running will take up a lot of your energy and a healthy diet is a must if you intend on being fit and strong.
  4. Drink lots of water: It is very essential to drink lots of water and keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. Pro tip: Gulp down some water after your run, as we tend to lose water and minerals from our body in the form of sweat.
  5. Run with music on: Recent studies have proven that running with music on is the better alternative. Music helps us focus more on our goal and also helps us stay calm.
  6. Consistency: You have to be consistent in your workout and only then will you be able to notice a significant change in your health. Running at least once a day is recommended. Some people tend to run twice a day too, but that depends from person to person. Do not burden yourself too much. Running is an exhausting exercise and you should not force your body too much.
  7. Calm your body and mind: Running or jogging in the morning can have a positive impact on you as it reduces stress and keeps you calm and sound throughout the day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

Tips For Slim Face in hindi - पतले चेहरे के लिए टिप्स

Tips For Slim Face in hindi -  पतले चेहरे के लिए टिप्स

कई बार गोरापन, सुंदरता धरी की धरी रह जाती है, जब चेहरे पर मोटापा बढ़ जाता है। थुल-थुल चेहरा न सिर्फ आपको अंकफर्टेबल कर देता है बल्कि, चेहरे पर जमा मोटापा आपको उम्रदराज भी दिखाता है। 
हालांकि चेहरे पर जमा चर्बी से कोई शारीरिक तकलीफ नहीं होती पर जब आप पर लोग अट्रैक्ट नहीं हों मोटा चेहरा होने की वजह से तब मन को जरूर तकलीफ होती है।

मार्केट में चेहरे की इस समस्या का इलाज है पर वह जोखिम भरा और खर्चीला होता होता है जो हर किसी के बस का नहीं। चेहरे पर चर्बी जमा होने के कई कारण हो सकते हैं, जैसे वसा युक्त भोजन ज़्यादा खाना, पानी कम पीना और लगातार शरीर का वज़न बढ़ना। गालों पर फ़ैट को कम करने के लिए ज़रूरी है कि आप वज़न कम करें। या चिंता करें बस आप बताए गए कुछ नुस्खो को अपनाएं और स्लिम फेस के साथ इतराएं। तो आइए जानते हैं उन नायाब तरीकों के बारे में।

1. फेशियल मसाज करें
आपकी गर्दन के ऊपर और ठोड़ी के नीचे बहुत आसानी से फैट बढ़ जाता हैं। त्वचा को कसने के लिए फेशियल मसाज एक बेहतर ऑप्शन हैं। मसाज की शुरुआत ठोड़ी की त्वचा को कानो तक लेकर जाए, इसे 5 मिनट तक दिन में दो बार करें। ऐसा करने से रक्त संचार बेहतर होगा और आपकी त्वचा कस जाएगी।

2. च्विंगम चबाएं
राह चलते कई बार हम च्विंगम चबाते देखते हैं। पर यह फाल्तू नहीं बड़े काम का नुस्खा है स्लिम फेस पाने के लिए। ऐसा करने से आपकी चीकबोन्स कम होती हैं। लेकिन इस बात का ध्यान रखें कि च्वींगम में शुगर कम हो ताकि आप कैवेटी का शिकार ना हो।

3. ब्रेकफास्ट में कैल्सियम वाले डाइट लें 
सुबह का नाश्ता जमकर किया जाए तो मेटाबलिज़्म तेज़ हो जाता है। बहुत से लोग डायटिंग करने के नाम खाना पीना छोड़ देते हैं, जिससे मेटाबलिज़्म धीमा हो जाता है और बॉडी में चर्बी जमा होने की रफ़्तार बढ़ जाती है। जिससे चेहरा और पेट ज्यादा प्रभावित होता है। 
कैल्शियम युक्त आहार खाने से शरीर से अतिरिक्त पानी कम होता है और चर्बी भी कटती है। दूध, दही, दालें, हरी सब्ज़ियां और सी फ़ूड में पर्याप्त कैल्शियम होता है। जिसे लेने ये स्लिम फेस पाने में मदद मिलेगा।

4. नमक कम खाएं
हर व्यक्ति के शरीर की नमक की आदर्श मात्रा 3.8 मिलीग्राम हैं। ज्यादा नमक का सेवन करने से शरीर में सूजन और निर्जलन जैसी समस्या हो जाती हैं। दरअसल हमारे गुर्दे प्राकृतिक फिल्टर के रूप में कार्य करते हैं और मूत्र पथ के माध्यम से हमारे शरीर का अतिरिक्त खनिज और तरल पदार्थ बाहर निकाल देता हैं। ज्यादा नमक का सेवन करने से आपकी रक्त वाहिकाओं पर असर पड़ता है जिसकी वजह से हमारे चेहरे पर सूजन होती हैं।

5. पानी खूब पिएं
ज़्यादा पानी पीना भी चेहरे को पतला करने का तरीका है। पानी शरीर में इलेक्ट्रोलाइट्स को बैलेंस करके डिहाइड्रेशन से बचाता है। ज्यादा पानी पीने से विषैले त्तव यानि टॉक्सिंस बाहर निकल जाते हैं। साथ ही साथ पानी पीने से वज़न कम करने में भी मदद मिलती है और चेहरा पतला होने लगता है।

6. भरपूर नींद लें
पूरी नींद न लेने से हार्मोन असंतुलित हो जाते हैं, जिससे वज़न बढ़ने लगता है। जिससे चेहरे पर भी चर्बी आ जाती है, इसलिए अच्छी नींद ज़रूर लें।

7. फेशियल योगा करें
हम सब योगा से होने वाले स्वास्थ लाभ से वाकिफ हैं, लेकिन क्या आप जानते हैं कि योगा चेहरे की चर्बी को कम करने में भी मददगार हैं। योगा को रुटीन में लाने से आपको चेहरे में बदलाव दिखेगा।शुरु करते है सबसे आसान तरीके से, सबसे पहले अपनी गर्दन को पिछे की तरफ झुका ले औऱ उसके बाद छत की तरफ देखें, अब अपने होंठो की मदद से ‘ओ’ का आकार बनाएं, और इस व्यायाम को दोहराएँ कम से कम 10 बार धीरे धीरे आप इस प्रकिया में इजाफा भी कर सकते है सुंदर ‘जॉ लाइन’ पाने के लिए पहले सीधा बैंठे उसके बाद अपने सिर को पिछे की तरफ मोड़े, अब अपनी जीभ को बाहर निका लें इस अवस्था में करीब 10 मिनट तक बैठें रहें, और इस प्रकिया को कम से कम 5 बार जरुर करें। चिकबनोस्क को सुंदर बनाने के लिए एक और व्यायाम करें, अपने चेहरे को मछली के आकार का बना लें उसके बाद चेहरे को सिकोड़ लें मछली के आकार के रुप में इसे करीब 10 मिनट तक ऐसे ही रहने दें और इसे 5 बार जरुर करें। ये व्यायाम करने में काफी आसान है, आप इसे बड़ी आसानी के साथ कर सकते है, सोचिए की आपने मुंह में पानी ले रखा है और उसी आकार में अपने चहरे को थोड़ी देर के लिए छोड़ दें, इस दौरान ध्यान रहे आपके होंठ जोर से दबे होने चाहिए, इस व्यायाम को 30 सेकेंड ही करें लेकिन दिन में 2 बार जरुर दोहराएं यह व्यायाम आपके होंठ, ठोड़ी और गाल हड्डियों के लिए बेहद फायदेमंद होता है।

Drinking Red Wine Is Equal To Gymming - Is It Too Good To Be True?

Drinking Red Wine Is Equal To Gymming - Is It Too Good To Be True?

All wine lovers, behold. A recent study has found that red wine contains a compound called resveratrol which has similar health benefits of exercising or gymming. However, before you give up gymming and turn to a wine cellar, let’s delve deeper into this.

The actual study involved a control group of rats which were supplemented with resveratrol. The rats were then forced to run on a treadmill for days. Results showed that rats who had consumed resveratrol ran faster and longer than rats who did not have resveratrol. The rats that were induced with resveratrol had greater energy and glucose levels.

The health benefits of red wine are well known to all in terms of slimming your waist line, protecting you against dementia and cancer, anti-aging, effective mouthwash and more. And, now adding to these benefits, red wine has also proven to boost heart rate, thereby, increasing your ability to physically exert more. Even though it is an alcoholic beverage, red wine indeed is an elixir when consumed in moderation.

But, before you jump on the bandwagon, below are some important conclusions of the recent study conducted:

  1. The study was done on animals and it can be debatable, if it can apply to humans as well. It is not really sure, if animal studies can actually predict human reactions.
  2. The rats were supplemented with high doses of resveratrol equivalent to one full bottle of red wine. Consuming a whole bottle of red wine will add to more sugar and calories and outweigh the weight loss benefits of red wine.
  3. Resveratrol is also found in grapes. So, rather than gulping down a whole bottle of red wine, why not try a bowl of red grapes? This might be a more healthy way to consume resveratrol and enjoy its proven benefits.
  4. Resveratrol can help patients who are physically incapable of doing exercises. This magical compound, if supplemented in the right way can mimic exercise for such people and provide benefits for them.
  5. As the old saying goes, if something is too good to be true, then it probably is. The health benefits of red wine are abundant, but when it comes down to this study it is really not clear if does it really provide its proven benefits.

This study tends to focus more on people who are unable to get their workout done due to physical inabilities. If you are able to physically work out well, then go for it! There is nothing close to the real benefits of working out. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Ayurvedic Slimming Tea - How They Help in Weight Loss?

Ayurvedic Slimming Tea - How They Help in Weight Loss?

Ayurveda is a field of medical science that has its rules steeped in the ancient knowledge that emanated from India. This is a well-known field of medicine, which is now practiced throughout the globe. With the help of Ayurveda, we can actually get to the root cause of any disease and ailment so as to remove the very cause from the body rather than merely giving symptomatic relief, which may not be permanent in nature. Due to this fact, Ayurveda also relies on lifestyle and diet restrictions, which go hand in hand with its Yogic postures, herbal medicines, massages and other such measures. Weight management is one such field which has many cures in Ayurveda.

The ingestion of slimming teas is one such measure for weight loss. Read on to know more.

  1. Choice of tea: First of all, it is important to know the types of tea and the choices you have when it comes to choosing the right one for your weight loss journey. While green tea, white tea and the rare oolong tea are known as the most effective weight loss tea varieties, there are others like black tea as well as decaf and herbal tea that may be suited for those who only want to lose a moderate amount of weight. Further, these can also help people who want to maintain a steady weight and remain fit. However, one must remember that sweet and diet teas can lead to long-term repercussions, if taken in excessive quantities. So, one must choose the kind of slimming tea based on the kind of weight loss that needs to be achieved.
  2. Daily habit: Now that you have chosen the kind of slimming tea that you need, you must be aware that the body goes through its own cycles of extracting antioxidants from the tea as well as the nutrients, even as it throws out the toxins in an effective manner. Therefore, one must cultivate tea drinking as a regular and daily habit with at least two cups daily cup so that the cycle is put into place for the slimming properties to kick in. You can also substitute your coffee and regular tea with this kind of tea, eventually. You will have to develop a taste for it, in order to enjoy it.
  3. No additives: It is absolutely not allowed to add any kind of additives like sugar or honey or even milk to one’s slimming tea as this will take the slimming properties to the background. Adding anything to the tea also leads to many health complications in the long run. Having plain tea will aid in the regulation of one’s awry metabolism so that in due course of time, weight loss may be achieved. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Treatment For Belly Fat And Love Handles

Love handles are the extra flab around your waistline and may not only make you reach out to the next size of clothing but also take a serious toll on your health. Also, it leads to a drastic decline in one's confidence. Love handles and belly fat tend to accumulate due to one’s eating habits as well as the lack of exercise. All this results in a slowdown of one’s metabolic rate, which triggers the fat accumulation in these areas. This also happens when one starts aging. There are many ways of dealing with such problems such as correct diet and exercise. But for a longer term and quicker treatment, one can resort to varied cosmetic treatments. Let us cast a glance on these surgical procedures.

  1. Slim Lipo: With this method, one can remove the excess and unwanted fat that has accumulated in hips and abdomen area. This kind of procedure is a surgical one, where an incision is made with assisted laser therapy in order to remove the fat and contour the area.

  2. Coolsculpting: This is a form of treatment that targets the belly fat and love handles so that excess fat may be removed in a non-invasive procedure. In this procedure, the laser fibre reaches the fat cells before destroying them and thus giving the hips and waist a better shape.

  3. Fat Freezing: This is a widely used technique for removing the fat from the area where it has accumulated. This method reduces fat and is far more effective over a long term than mere weight loss. Besides reducing the fat that gives rise to love handles and belly fat, this kind of treatment can also be applied to other areas of the body including the chin and arms.

  4. Contouring with Cosmetology: The various kinds of invasive and non-invasive procedures under cosmetology, use assisted laser as well as incisions in order to remove and burn the fat cells. This kind of targeted treatment usually has a uniform result for the entire body and creates a well-contoured look, which also tightens the skin and keeps it from sagging due to sudden fat loss. Apart from this, one can also make use of various liposuction and contouring treatments in order to remove the excess fat and give the body a better shape.

  5. Other Measures: Other measures that will take a long time to show results include diet control as well as exercise. One can use the support of a trainer to target specific areas of the body so that excess fat is toned and weight gain is prevented. Also, consuming lesser calories and burning the same through sufficient exercise is one of the most well-proven methods for those who are experiencing the onset of love handles and belly fat. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

Fat - 5 Superfoods That Can Avoid it

Burning fat with food must sound contradictory, but there are certain foods that can actually melt away your fats by improving your metabolism. Some foods have an extensive thermogenic effect (metabolism increasing effects) that can lead to the reduction of fat in your body. Read on to find out five such super foods and burn your fat away.

  1. Tuna: Tuna is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and it also helps boost the production of a hormone called leptin. This particular hormone gives the illusion of fullness and you don't end up having large portions. It also accelerates your metabolic process. Apart from tuna, sardines too have the same properties.
  2. Green teaThe benefits of green tea are widely known. It has 'epigallocatechin' which improves the nervous system and elevates the heart rate. Drinking three cups of green tea daily has proven to burn up to 80 calories.
  3. Hot peppers: Different kinds of hot peppers not only spice up your food but they also melt calories. Capsaicin, a chemical present in peppers can increase metabolism rate by 25% for up to three hours after you consume your meal.
  4. GrapefruitThis delicious fruit has the amazing power to make you slim. Grapefruit has an antioxidant called 'naringenin' which can aid your body in its use of insulin more effectively, thereby keeping the blood sugar level under control and prevent diabetes. Recent studies have shown that sugar control coupled with grapefruits lead to improved calorie burn.
  5. Cinnamon: Studies have shown that including cinnamon into your daily diet can help you lose weight. A teaspoon of honey and half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder added to a cup of boiling water can also help you lose weight and lower your risk of heart disease. Cinnamon lowers blood sugar levels along with bad cholesterol levels (LDL) while having no effect on the good cholesterol (HDL). Hence, it's beneficial for both heart and type 2 diabetes patients. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.
