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.

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.

Health and Fitness at INEVO

INEVO is dedicated to helping people look and feel better. We believe there are 3 components to fitness, and it’s important to incorporate all three to boost your metabolism, shed pounds and restore energy!

  • Component 1: Aerobic and cardiovascular activity  – These exercises support heart and lung health, and they are the best types of exercise to melt away your belly fat.
  • Component 2: Strength training – It is an important component that many people don’t do when they are trying to lose weight. Strength training helps increase muscle tissue while boosting your metabolism.
  • Component 3: Stretching Exercises – These exercises improve your flexibility, increase circulation and relieve stress.

Let’s look at the first component, aerobic and cardiovascular activity, a little bit closer! Cardio exercises are a fun way to get your heart pumping, but after awhile running, spinning or watching that same workout tape again can get boring.

Also, it’s important to note that too much repetition in your workout will slow down your results because you will begin to plateau. It’s important to add a little variety, which will also give muscle groups a chance to recover on their days off!

So how can you spice up your card routine and maximize your workout? Below are two great new card exercises that you should try!

  •   Zumba: This high-energy card routine is becoming all the rage, and if you haven’t tried it yet – well, you should! It is a dance workout that combines latin dances (Salsa, Merengue and Reggaeton) with fun club-like music! Zumba incorporates squats, kicks, lunges and plenty of other moves to get your heart pumping and feet moving!
  • Cardio Kickboxing: This exercise is a combination of martial arts, boxing and traditional card movements. This includes nonstop bobbing and weaving, punching, high-kicks and so much more. After this intense workout, you’ll definitely feel the burn!

The LipoLaser and Belly Fat

Written by Darren Dubyak D.C.
* Dr. Dubyak, of Peak Performance Chiropractic and Nutrition Center, is continually helping people reach their healthcare goals.  He is proud to offer total health and wellness solutions, including: chiropractic care, nutrition counseling, rehabilitation, Disc Decompression Therapy and LipoLaser sessions. To learn more, please visit his website at: www.drdubyak.com.

What is the LipoLaser?
Our LipoLaser is an innovative and revolutionary technology, offering clients an easy, painless and effective way to lose belly fat and contour their bodies. Compared to surgical liposuction, this non-invasive treatment requires no needles, is more affordable and provides similar results.

How does it work?
The LipoLaser paddles emit low levels of energy, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol. The free fatty acids are converted into energy, while water and glycerol are released through natural metabolic functions. This process is a normal response, which means no unnatural reaction is created during the LipoLaser sessions.

What makes the LipoLaser different?
The Lipolaser paddles are placed directly on the skin, which allows for targeted belly fat reduction and results in substantial body contouring improvements. By utilizing the LipoLaser to target specific areas of the body, we can contour, shape and melt away the stubborn inches that are resistant to diet and exercise.
