Losing weight can be very difficult for most men and women. Some people decide to undergo liposuction to remove pockets of fat from specific areas of the body. However, it is important that patients continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet following liposuction to maintain body contours.

Cut Down Portion Sizes

Many of us overestimate recommended portion sizes when fixing ourselves meals. Try measuring out the exact portion indicated on product nutrition labels when making meals.

Drink More Water

Most people do not drink enough water, though remaining hydrated offers numerous health benefits. Drinking at least eight glasses of water each day will help your stomach feel full and improve the appearance of your skin.

Cut Out Sodas and Other Sugary Drinks

Cutting calorie-laden sodas, energy drinks, and juice concentrates out of your diet can significantly reduce your daily calorie count.

Snack Smartly

Snacking on healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, and butter-free popcorn can help keep you full between meals so you are not tempted to stray from your diet plan.

Exercise at Least 30 Minutes Each Day

Although you should avoid exercise during your liposuction recovery period, it is imperative that you resume your exercise routine as soon as your doctor says it is safe.
