Congratulations! You have decided to take the exciting step of enhancing your natural beauty and confidence with non-surgical body sculpting. Whilst the technology is doing its bit and your body is working to achieve your desired results, it is essential to practise healthy living. At Totally Transformed, we believe that your transformation is not just about the procedure itself but also about the lifestyle choices you make afterwards.

What is Healthy Living?

Our treatments take inches from your body and the results last, providing of course that you are sensible. The aim is to use this fantastic treatment to bring about a lifestyle change. Regular meals, portion control, not too much alcohol and regular exercise will help ensure your new shape is retained. There are three general areas on which to focus on the path to a healthier new you.

Eating & Nutrition.

First things first, hydration! Every cell in our bodies is made up of around 70% water. So, for your body to be able to function properly, you need to be hydrated. Drink two to three litres of water per day to stay hydrated and to help your body flush out fat cells that have been destroyed during treatment.

Eat slowly. Challenge yourself to taste each bite of the next meal you eat. Instead of talking or working whilst eating, drop everything except your fork and taste every mouthful. It can take the brain up to 20 minutes to recognise the feeling of fullness. This means when your stomach is full, your brain has not yet told you, so you can end up continuing to eat and consume extra calories!

The Hunger scales. A lot of people do not know when they are hungry. They eat for lots of other reasons – like boredom, tiredness, or habit. Next time you think its lunchtime, ask yourself, “on a scale of one to ten, how hungry am I?” If the answer is 2 or 3 you are not hungry enough to eat, but if it is 9, you should have already eaten.

Eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible. 5 portions a day will give you most of the vitamins you need, but the more you can eat the better. If you are unable to then it may be necessary to take a multivitamin supplement

Eat breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and research shows that long term weight loss without breakfast is impossible.

Eat 5 times a day. This will prevent your metabolism from slowing down. If you are short on time, have a protein bar, a snack pack of nuts & berries or a piece of fruit for a mid-morning/ afternoon snack. Take a packed lunch to work. This will prevent hunger and stop you from snacking on naughty treats whilst keeping your blood sugar levels stable.

Increase the amount of protein in your diet. Protein helps stabilise the secretion of insulin into your blood stream, a process that affects the metabolism. The average person will benefit from a minimum of 70 grams or higher per day. Protein helps maintain the metabolism better than carbohydrates or fat whilst dieting. A higher protein diet is better at satisfying the appetite than any other diet.

Watch your calorie intake. The average male needs 2500 calories a day and the average woman 2000. Gender and physical activity need to be considered. To find out how many calories and other nutrients you should be eating per day, you need to first work out what your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is and then adjust it based on your daily activity level.

Eat low fat. Avoid saturated fats, trans- fats and hydrogenated fats. Cut fat of meat and avoid frying foods.

Keep a food diary. This helps you to know yourself better and to help control what you are consuming.

Exercise and Lifestyle

Exercise is not strictly part of our aftercare advice! However, in any positive change in lifestyle, exercise can’t hurt! So, with this in mind exercise more. This will burn calories and speed up your metabolic rate. Get a step counter (we use Apple Watches and Fit Bit’s here) and aim to walk 10000 steps per day, slowly increasing this over time? Walk the dog, walk to work just walk, walk, walk…. It’s good for you and it’s free!

Most alcohol full of calories but new research shows that the metabolism of fat is reduced by as much as 73% after only two glasses of vodka and lemonade in a one-hour period.

But why does this all matter?

Let’s explore why living a healthy lifestyle after your body sculpting treatments is crucial for long-term success.

Healthy Living Optimises Results

Non-surgical body sculpting treatments, such as ultrasound cavitation or cryolipolysis, can deliver impressive results by targeting and eliminating stubborn fat deposits. However, maintaining these results requires a commitment to healthy habits. By following a balanced diet, staying active, and practising self-care, you can maximise and prolong the benefits of your treatment.

Supporting your Body’s Healing Process

While non-surgical body sculpting is minimally invasive and typically involves minimal downtime, your body still needs time to heal and adjust post-treatment. Adopting a healthy lifestyle can support your body’s natural healing process, promoting faster recovery and minimising any potential discomfort or side effects.

Healthy Living Prevents Fat Reaccumulating

Although non-surgical body sculpting permanently removes targeted fat cells, it’s essential to remember that fat can still accumulate in untreated areas if healthy habits are not maintained. By making nutritious food choices, staying hydrated, and staying active, you can help prevent fat reaccumulating and maintain your newly sculpted physique for the long haul.

Enhance Your Overall Well-Being

Living a healthy lifestyle is not about physical appearance—it is about feeling your best inside and out. Incorporating nutrient-rich foods, regular exercise, adequate sleep, and stress management techniques into your daily routine can boost your energy levels, mood, and overall quality of life. As the saying goes, when you feel good on the inside, you feel good on the outside.

Long-Term Health Benefits

Beyond aesthetic improvements, adopting a healthy lifestyle offers numerous long-term health benefits. Maintaining a healthy weight, managing stress, and prioritizing self-care can reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. By investing in your health today, you are setting yourself up for a happier, healthier future.

At Totally Transformed, we are committed to supporting you on your journey to a transformed body and lifestyle. Our aftercare resources provide valuable guidance on nutrition, exercise, skincare, and more to help you maintain and enhance your results long after your treatment. Remember, your body reflects the choices you make every day.
