In all the years, let’s say decades, that I have been searching for the ultimate weight loss weapons, I have stumbled upon a few things…in fact hundreds of things! From fasts to superfoods and so much more! And let me tell you I have tried and researched so many of them.
Most of them unfortunately don’t work at all. I wish they did.
If I had to pinpoint the main keys to looking good/weight loss I would say that the mind is number one. You must want deep down to change your life and be strong and do what it takes. It will be uncomfortable because one must change habits. It is almost like changing religions.
The second and most important part of the journey is the diet. I am not going into details here but you can read more about it in my books.
The third aspect is exercise, and here we are talking about balanced exercises, not too much, not too little, and with the right technique .
So what happens if after all this there is a little stubborn area in your body that doesn’t go away despite what you do? What do you do?
I personally had one of those areas, and in the last few years I tried a few things and one of them was CoolSculpting.
I have had this procedure with advice from a Dr. The idea of CoolSculpting is create a natural looking body, minus the lumps and bumps.
So let’s take a step back as I explain what CoolSculpting is. The technical term for the procedure is cryolipolysis. This is a procedure created by Harvard University, and every time I see the word Harvard, I like it and I trust it. CoolSculpting freezes your fat cells and in a period of around 12 weeks, those cells will be naturally eliminated forever from your body. In each application a patient can potentially lose 20% – 25% of the fat cells around the treated area.
I test everything before I offer it to my clients. I have to say that it works! Bloody hell it does. I had it done on my stomach and after around 3 weeks I started to see the results and I liked it big time!
Since then I have been promoting it to the point that I am now working with the team in Australia. I only put my name to those kind of things if it works, and this one does!
It is not magic. It’s not going to change an obese person into Miranda Kerr, with no change in their diet or no exercise program. Although I’m sure we all wish it was like that!
As I said before I use it as a tool to perfect the body after appropriate diet and exercise when there is a little stubborn area that needs some treatment. And yes, in those cases it works.
CoolSculpting can only be provided by doctors and their clinics. When I was doing all my research I contacted a good friend and one of the best Plastic Surgeons in Australia, Dr Rohit Kumar. He is part of the Expert Advisory Board on cosmetic surgery for Vogue magazine. Dr Kumar and his team at Sydney Cosmetic Sanctuary are great and explained to me in detail the procedure and answered all my questions.
So let me tell you how I felt during and after the procedure. During the procedure you just feel cold, nothing else. Some people experience some discomfort, I didn’t. It takes only one hour and after that the treated area was frozen and I received a massage and then for a few days the area was a bit numb, nothing else. As I said I got the results that I wanted.
And yes if you are wondering, you can repeat the procedure with the guidance and advice of a doctor like Dr Kumar.
As with anything that is good, there are some companies copying the CoolSculpting machine, so be aware. Look for CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ.
I will write more about it in the future telling you more about my client’s experiences with this procedure.
So the journey continues and I am open to test and try anything for my clients! All in the name of awareness and wellbeing!
