Liposuction suctions out fat which has accumulated beneath the skin. This body contouring procedure is very popular amongst men and women who wish to get rid of their love handles, muffin tops, thunder thighs, and other pockets of fat. After performing a successful New York City liposuction, Dr. Steven Wallach recommends a combination of healthy diet and regular physical activity to maintain the amazing results of the procedure.
Walking Your Way to Fitness
In a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism concerning physical activity after a body-contouring procedure, researcher Fabiana Braga Benatti said, “”If someone chooses to undergo liposuction, it is very important, if not essential, that this person exercises after the surgery.” You do not have to do vigorous exercises and enroll yourself to nearest gym for your regular dose of physical activity. Dr. Wallach recommends the simple act of walking as a way to maintain your physique post-liposuction. We list down the benefits of putting one foot in front of the other below!
Walking trims you down
The longer you walk, the more calories you burn per hour. The amount of calories you burn while walking is directly proportional to your weight (the heavier you are, the more calories you torch off!) and your speed of walking.
Lowers your risk of developing diabetes.
Studies have shown that walking for at least 30 minutes daily makes your more sensitive to insulin, preventing the storage of hefty amounts of glucose in your bloodstream (this is what happens when you have diabetes).
Helps you quit smoking
Walking engages the centers of your brain which affects mood, particularly the centers responsible for your cigarette cravings. By walking for at least 10 minutes, your mind is taken off from going a quick cigarette break.
Increases mental acuity
Apart from stimulating your brain’s mood centers, walking for at least half an hour also keeps you sharp by stimulating your neurons and synapses. Also, mild forms of anxiety and depression are reduced with regular walking habits.
Several large-scale studies have shown that walking can ward off diseases — from the common cold and flu to arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease.
