If you live in most parts of the United States or Canada, you are experiencing chilly weather right about now. The first part of the new year brings snow, wind, and ice to regions all over North America. Many people think about Winter as a time for vegetating indoors, and while we certainly don’t disagree, there are also good arguments to be made for losing weight during the Winter. This might seem counter-intuitive, because people tend to stay indoors during the Winter, but we’ve got a few methods that might change your mind.
Winter is the Best Time for Weight Loss
Coolsculpting is Perfect for Winter – If you haven’t heard of this fat loss option, check out this Coolsculpting guide. It’ll answer all of your questions. In short, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that freezes fat cells and makes them release the fat they hold, resulting in a slimmer physique. After a single non-invasive, non-painful procedure, fat cells in places like your love handles or stomach will be frozen. When you leave the facility, you won’t see a difference, but over the coming days, the affected cells will release their stored fat into your bloodstream, to be used or eliminated just like fat you eat. After a couple of sessions, you can lose a noticeable amount of fat from the regions where it’s hardest to lose weight. The reason we recommend this procedure for the Winter is that this gives you the most time to get the best results. Once the spring and summer hit, you’ll have the perfect body for swimsuit season.
Exercise Can Pay Off Faster. One of the best ways to lose weight in the winter is to exercise as normal, especially outside. When you spend time in the cold outdoors, your body has to work hard to stay warm. This requires it to draw from its fat stores – the lumpy spots we try so hard to smooth out. If you exercise outdoors – through sports, running, or even chopping firewood – it’s important to continue to do so even when the weather gets cold. You’ll burn more calories in cold weather and you’ll lose weight faster.
Shorter Days Give You More Time to Learn New Things and Make Plans. During the summer, long days beckon us to spend lots of time outside, enjoying life with our friends. In the winters, we tend to stay to ourselves a little more. This is a great time of the year for learning, reading, and researching. If you are having trouble losing weight, why not learn a lot more about how the body stores and loses fat? Why not use the extra time to learn about home exercise regimens? The winter can easily be a time of laziness, but if you’re ready, you can turn it into a time for activity.
We might not normally think of Winter as a great time to lose weight, but this is because of a lack of imagination. With a little planning, you can take advantage of the unique characteristics of winter to jumpstart your weightloss goals. By the time the warmer weather arrives, you and your body will be ready!
