Chinese New Year is a time when we enjoy hearty meals with our family and friends. While it’s a great time to catch up with our loved ones, we should also watch our weight.
You wouldn’t want to dump out all the beautiful clothes you’ve bought for Chinese New Year after the festive season because they feel too snug on you.
Want to know how to keep your body looking svelte despite the feasting? We ask Dr Ivan Puah of Amaris B. Clinic for tips and advice.
1. Swap sweet carbonated drinks with soda water for that same satisfying, fizzy taste.
2. Use a small bowl instead of a big one when you eat. It’ll trick your mind into eating less.
3. Occupy yourself with conversations or games rather than sitting at a table full of goodies. Out of sight, out of mind!
4. Wear a tighter outfit so you can see when your tummy is filled. You’ll know you have to stop when your tummy is showing.
Stubborn fat that refuses to budge with diet and exercise is a common sight. It can be caused by genetics or a change in fat distribution due to ageing. Liposuction is a clinically proven fat removal and body contouring procedure to correct disproportionate body shape and remove unwanted body fat.
Your doctor should first understand your objectives for opting to do an aesthetic treatment or body contouring procedure. A detailed assessment and discussion should be done during the consultation. Not everyone is suitable to undergo liposuction, for example, ladies who are pregnant, individuals with an underlying medical condition or those who are overweight or obese.
Cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers and injectable neurotoxins are not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
