“A person who aims at nothing is sure to hit it.” – Anonymous
There’s a common thread in the advice successful people give when it comes to reaching a goal: focus with laser-like concentration on the goal, blocking all outside distractions.
We like the way Venus Williams, winner of two US Opens and five Wimbledon titles expressed it: “I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I try to ignore the rest.”
In our diet-conscious society, this simple advice is worth remembering. While the focus seems to be on weight control, in reality we would do better to focus on fat reduction.
A recent article by wellness lifestyle site Livestrong.com
entitled the Difference Between Losing Weight and Losing Fat highlighted the important differences between the two and why our goal should always be to lose FAT, not WEIGHT.
You might be thinking “Isn’t losing fat the same thing as losing weight?”
Actually, no, it’s not.
Your focus should be on losing FAT, not WEIGHT.
Just losing weight results in the loss of everything – fat, muscle, fluids, organ size. That’s not good. You don’t want to lose valuable muscle, because that usually results in long-term weight (and FAT) gain. With no muscle tone, you end up being a smaller version of a fat person.
While losing weight other than fat is unavoidable, the loss of muscle mass will often cause a rebound effect that leads to weight gain. And, as we gain weight, those fat cells become larger. Hence, the “yo-yo” effects so often experienced in dieting, where we lose weight only to gain it back (and sometimes in excess!).
CoolSculpting® targets only the fat cells!
CoolSculpting® freezes the fat cells, thus reducing their number in the treated area. Less fat cells in an area mean less fat cells available to get bigger again later.
While weight loss surgery can still leave fat cells, a CoolSculpting® treatment actually eliminates the fat cells for good. People who have CoolSculpting® experience a thinner physique and their clothes fit better. In short, they look better.
As Venus Williams said, “keep the focus on your goal and ignore the rest.” CoolSculpting® helps you focus on the right thing, FAT removal, while ignoring all the weight loss hoopla.
