What Causes Cellulite?

We hear the term cellulite all the time. It is described as the dimpled or bumpy appearance of the skin, which is caused by fat deposits located below the skin’s surface, and it is a common problem in women. The real question is what causes cellulite? Are there ways to prevent cellulite? These are good questions, and INEVO Contouring has researched all of them.

Cellulite can effect anyone because it is an issue of fat cells and skin elasticity.  In a September 2007 issue of Elle Magazine David J. Goldberg, MD, stated, “The inherent thinning of skin’s support structure makes fat cells more obvious.” There are many causes of cellulite, and below are the most common factors:

 – Genetics: Genes and heredity play a role in the development of cellulite     because they also have an effect on slow metabolism, distribution of fat and     circulatory issues.

– Diet: Women who eat a diet high in fat, salt and carbohydrates are at         higher risk of developing cellulite.

– Lifestyle: If you smoke, or if you lead a sedentary lifestyle, then you are         more likely to develop cellulite.

If you want to reduce your risk of developing cellulite, then you should eat a healthy diet including: fruits, vegetables and fiber. Limit your intake of fats and sugars, and exercise regularly – everything you should do to maintain a healthy lifestyle!

If you are ready to jumpstart your health, then INEVO Contouring is your solution! Our innovative system includes our revolutionary lipolaser, our delicious and healthy Easy Meals and nutritional supplements. For more information, please visit our website: www.inevocontouring.com.

The Facts About Fat

Did you know that we have more than one kind of fat in our body? It’s true – subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. You might have heard the words subcutaneous or visceral before, but do you know what they mean or how to distinguish between the two different kinds of fat?

Well, if you don’t know or if you are interested in learning more, then read on because INEVO Contouring has done some very interesting research, and we want to share it with you!

Subcutaneous fat can be defined as the fat you can “see,” which means the fat you can pinch. You might be thinking about the fat around your waist, thighs or love handles, but it’s also the fat on your underarms and even the soles of your feet!

The point is we all have subcutaneous fat all over our bodies, but when there is too much – well, that’s when there is a problem. This kind of fat can cause dimpling and cellulite. It’s the fat that you can pinch, and it’s that stubborn fat that you can’t seem to lose no matter how much you diet and exercise.

Visceral fat, on the other hand, is the dangerous kind of fat that can lead to significant health problems and diseases. You can’t see this fat because it resides around major organs including your heart and liver, which means a person who looks thin may still have too much visceral fat.

Some causes of excess visceral fat are high carb diets and yo-yo dieting. This kind of fat can cause: high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, dementia and high cholesterol.

So what can you do? Well, INEVO Contouring is committed to helping people look better and feel healthier. We have developed a complete system to meet your needs and reach your goals!

Spice It Up – Ways to Boost Metabolism

If you are trying to lose weight, maintain your physique or just need a jumpstart to reach your health goals, boosting your metabolism plays an important role. That should be easy, right? Well, not so fast. Did you know that men tend to burn more calories than women, even at rest? Or that for most people, after 40 your metabolism steadily slows down?

Well, it’s true, but the good news is there are other ways you can boost and control your metabolism! INEVO Contouring has done some research to help you find the most effective foods and spices that you should incorporate into your diet. Read on for more information!

1. Meet the capsicum family (hot peppers).
The capsicum family, made up of hot peppers, contains capsaicin – a very potent metabolism boosting ingredient. Research has found participants who incorporated 10g of red pepper with their meal had a metabolic boost 30 minutes after their meal. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2009 also confirmed that hot peppers effectively boosts the metabolism!

2. The power of protein.
Did you know: the body may require almost 25% more energy to digest protein when compared to fat? It’s true, which is why we want to encourage you to eat a balanced diet, including healthy sources of protein like: turkey, fish, while meat chicken, tofu, nuts and beans.

3. A spoon full of cinnamon can boost your metabolism.
We know, we know – it’s a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down, but replace that sugar with cinnamon and get ready to boost your metabolism. According to the U.S. Agricultural Research Service, this spice can increase your metabolism twentyfold – all you need to do is ingest one teaspoon per day!

4. Tighten your tummy with turmeric.
You might not know how to pronounce it, but turmeric is a colorful spice that’s full of antioxidants, which boost the metabolism. Where can you find some? Indian dishes and curries often incorporate turmeric in their recipes.

5. G is for ginger.
The Journal of Life Sciences, in 1994, found ginger can have interesting effects on the body. Researchers found that ginger is composed of a pungent component, gingerol, which induces body warming.

6. The king of spices – black pepper.
Known as the “king of spices,” black pepper, is an ancient spice – composed of pipeline, which boosts metabolism. But that’s not all this little spice does. It also has a variety of health benefits including: boosting digestion, preventing diseases and being rich in antioxidants. That’s why it’s king.

Does the Lipolaser work

Happy 2012 readers! It’s a new year, which means that people have resolved to lose weight, get into shape and start on the path to a healthier lifestyle. The problem is most people don’t know how to reach their fat loss, weight loss or health goals.

Well, the answer is INEVO Contouring. As you know, our revolutionary lipolaser helps to remove stubborn areas of fat, tighten skin and melt away the inches, but no matter how good that all sounds, the real question people are asking is, “Does the lipolaser work?” The answer is yes, but you don’t just have to trust us!

We believe in our lipolaser because of the clinical research, which was performed by Chromogenex, the company that invented the iLipo. The clinical papers are titled, Low Level Laser for Fat Reduction and Body Reshaping – Case Studies with the I-lipo laser diode system.

The purpose of the study was “ to report the ability of the iLipo laser diode system to be used as a fat reduction and body reshaping system, offering patients immediate and long term changes to specific problem fatty areas.” A single treatment study was done on 20 participants, and a single case study was presented of a female participant that received eight treatment sessions over a 4-week period.

The results were amazing. Of the 20 participants, all lost measurable fat, after just one treatment session, ranging from 2.25cm to 5 inches, which confirmed, “the iLipo lasers effectiveness for immediate ‘inch loss’ with no reported adverse effects during of post treatment.” The female participant, who received a total of 8 sessions over a 4-week period, lost 9 inches of fat, 11 pounds and reduced her fat index from 39 to 35.2 percent.

The conclusion of the clinical trial is clear. “The iLipo low level laser device offers a patient a fast, non-invasive and pain-free treatment option for immediate and long-term sub-cutaneous fat reduction of problem fatty areas on the body.”

Convinced? Would you like to learn more? Visit our website to see how the iLipo, Lapex 2000 and the Zerona laser compare. Also featured on our site are more clinical studies, which prove the lipolaser can effectively shape and slim hard to tone areas, melt away stubborn fat and reveal the body you’ve always wanted!

Fitness Tips: Surviving the Holidays

The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with family and friends, enjoy good food and relax. Realistically, the holidays can be stressful – jammed packed with shopping trips, to do lists, and overeating. This usually means there is little time to just take a breather, let alone workout. Well, INEVO Contouring wants to help! We’ve complied a list of fitness tips to help your survive the holidays. Remember, it’s important to take a little bit of time and take care of yourself! If you keep up with your fitness routine now, you won’t feel guilty later!

– Don’t set unrealistic goals. You normally might have time to work out 45 minutes a day, but now your days are filled with baking cookies, shopping and wrapping. Instead of stressing out, trying to find 45 minutes – relax. Cut back your workouts to 20 minutes a day, then if you have some extra time one evening, workout a little bit longer. Once January hits, ramp back up to your normal routine.

– Stay active on the weekends. It’s easy to want to cuddle up inside and watch a movie or have friends over for cocktails. Instead, consider doing something fun and active outdoors. Why not suggest an ice skating trip, a powder puff football game or a snow fight?

– Drink your water. In the winter, you might not think water is as essential, but it is! Water not only keeps you hydrated during your late night wrapping sessions, it also keeps you feeling full, since thirst is often mistaken for hunger.

– Enjoy yourself. Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine. So find reasons to smile and laugh this holiday season. You’ll reduce stress, burn calories and enjoy yourself!

Enjoy or Avoid: The Thanksgiving Edition

So Thanksgiving is literally just around the corner, and while the holidays are a great time to enjoy good food with family, you still might be wondering what are the healthiest options when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner.

INEVO has compiled a list of foods you can enjoy and foods to avoid, but we want to say this, if there is something you really want to enjoy Thanksgiving day, then allow yourself to splurge. Everyone deserves it, but just remember, everything in moderation! Enjoy and have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy: “White” meat turkey; Avoid: “Dark” meat turkey

  •  3 ounces of “white” turkey breast will save you around 50 calories and 4 grams of fat from its darker counterpart. The white meat turkey has around 115 calories and 7 grams of fat, while the dark meat has around 160 calories and 11 grams of fat.

Enjoy: Green bean casserole; Avoid: Sweet potato casserole

  • Traditional green bean casserole, including the creamy mushroom soup and crispy fried onions is around 161 calories and 9 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup, which is a lighter side than sweet potato casserole that has around 285 calories and 5 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup. If you can’t say no to the sweet potato casserole, don’t feel too bad. It is still full of good nutrients including beta carotene and vitamin A.

Enjoy: Pumpkin pie; Avoid: Apple pie

  • Pumpkin pie is the better choice with 216 calories and 14 grams of fat per slice (around 1/8 of a 9 inch pie). Apple pie, on the other hand, has 411 calories and 19 grams of fat for the same-size slice.

Enjoy or Avoid – The “Diet” Food Edition

Dieting doesn’t mean eating tasteless, fat-free, low calorie foods. Instead, making informed, healthy choices will help you stay on track and leave you feeling full and satisfied. Below we’ve come up with a list of  healthy foods to enjoy and “diet” foods to avoid!

1. Avoid – Puffed cereal with skim milk
Yes, it’s true that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But eating breakfast is only half the battle, you still need to make healthy choices! Skim milk and puffed cereal may seem like a healthy, low-fat option, but the low fiber content won’t satisfy your hunger, and you’ll be left wanting more.

Enjoy – Rolled or steel cut oats.
Oatmeal is a satisfying and filling breakfast that will give you that needed boost of energy in the morning. Stick to the plain variety and add in a little brown sugar, fruits or even a tablespoon of peanut butter to satisfy your cravings.

2. Avoid – Plain rice cakes
Rice cakes are good for you, but when you notice that you’ve eaten half a bag in one sitting – well that’s a problem. These little cakes are low in fiber and have a high glycemic index, which means you’re probably going to be finishing that bag before you feel satisfied.

Enjoy – Rice cakes with some cream cheese or peanut butter.
A spread on top of your rice cake makes it a balanced choice that is fulfilling and satisfying. If you’re craving something sweet, add a tablespoon of peanut butter, or if you want something salty, then add a tablespoon of cream cheese.

3. Avoid – Light yogurt
With sweet, artificial flavors, light yogurt doesn’t leave your body with enough to digest, which means your stomach will be hungry for more.

Enjoy – Low-fat Greek yogurt
The high protein and creaminess of low-fat Greek yogurt makes it a better choice. If you want to add in some flavor try a dash of cinnamon or add in your favorite seasonal fruit.

4. Avoid – Apples
Okay, so you’ve heard “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” And it’s true – apples are good for you. However, if you eat just an apple for your daily afternoon snack, you may tend to overeat at dinner. That’s because just a plain old apple is not a balanced snack.

Enjoy – Apples and nuts (or cheese stick)
Eat an apple and some nuts too! If you combine your usual afternoon snack with a few almonds or a cheese stick, yes you might be getting some extra calories, but they are well worth it because it will keep you fuller longer.

The trick to any “diet” food is to ensure that it provides you with enough nutrients to keep you feeling full and satisfied. Remember that spicing it up or adding variety keeps things from getting boring. Also, keep in mind that if you let yourself indulge once in awhile, you will be less likely to splurge and overeat later.
