Are you seeing the double chin every single time you look in the mirror? CoolSculpting can help!

Age, weight gain and genetics all contribute to submental fat, also unflatteringly called a double chin. Now patients can say goodbye to their double chin thanks to the CoolSculpting procedure. Through the month of October, Thinsculpting is offering 25% off all CoolSculpting treatments.

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat. Treated fat cells are frozen and die. The body naturally processes the fat cells and eliminates them over time, leaving a contoured area. This FDA-approved treatment involves no needles, no anesthesia and little downtime. Appointments last an hour and people often see results of double chin treatment in one to two visits.

With the holidays approaching, take advantage of our 25% discount on CoolSculpting treatments during the month of October. Say hello to the new you in the mirror in no time. 

The Importance of Breakfast

The importance of breakfast and how CoolSculpting can help

We all hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We have been told this by our parents and grandparents and teachers for decades. Normally when asked why, we would hear “Because it’s what you eat to wake up” or “You need the energy to get through your day”. While both of these things are true, there is a lot more science that goes into breakfast being the most important meal of the day than just some sugar to get your energy levels up and kick start your body in the morning. If it was that simple, there wouldn’t be such a problem with having a candy bar or some cookies for breakfast. Now wouldn’t that be a lovely world?
The truth is, breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day according to science. This is because, in a way, it does help you wake up. Breakfast helps to jump start your digestive system and, more importantly, your metabolism. Your metabolism is what helps to break down food into energy and by starting this early in the day, it allows any food you take in after to be broken down quickly. This helps to prevent the food you eat from sitting stagnant in your stomach and being transferred to fat deposits which then settle in all those places you try and keep fat free.
Although we all lead crazy and busy and hectic lives, we must try and make time for breakfast. Now I’m not talking bacon and eggs and toast and all the other trimmings, but at least some kind of food in your stomach is a good start to the day. Many companies make nutrition bars or breakfast bars that can help to start your metabolism with something light at the beginning of the day.
Some people, myself included, can’t eat well when they first wake up. It takes the body a little while to warm up to the idea of food for the day. Sometimes it makes people feel sick, other times they just can’t choke it down. Whatever it happens to be, there are nutrition drinks that may be able to help you if this is a problem you combat in the mornings. Although not as good as actual food, these drinks mimic your digestion well enough to kick your metabolism into gear until you feel well enough to eat solid foods. Whatever you need to do to get breakfast into you, you should try it. See how big a difference it can make in your life!
If you’re on a mission to incorporate healthy eating habits, it may surprise you that CoolSculpting fits perfectly into your lifestyle. The process is not invasive; instead, an applicator is applied to a targeted body section and the excess fat is frozen. Then, naturally, that frozen, dead fat is flushed from your body over the course of the next month or two. So if you’re eating clean, working out, and still not seeing results you want, consider CoolSculpting in Cary or Wake Forest. The process is non-invasive and FDA cleared.

How ThinSculpting can help battle hormones

How our hormones effect fat loss

Although everyone knows, I’ll tell you something anyway. Hormones suck. Whether you are a female who has to deal with them, a female who has to listen to males tell you you’re dealing with them, or a guy who either deals with them or deals with a lot of women, you’ll know. If you are one of the thousands of Americans who deal with a hormonal imbalance, you’ll also know exactly how much they suck. If you are one of the thousands of Americans who identify as transgender, you also know how much they can suck. Although they can be balanced artificially, sometimes medical insurance doesn’t cover hormonal treatment. Other times, it’s just something you’re expected to deal with, especially as a woman.
Many women deal with P.M.S. and you know as well as anyone else that when your hormones are out of whack, nothing is right. Either you can’t focus on things correctly or you don’t feel yourself, or yes sometimes you are overemotional. It can be confusing and frustrating (especially when others try to point out how “hormonal” you are) and let’s face it, it’s just not fair. If you add the fact of weight gain that often comes with hormonal fluctuations, it can become just too much.
When woman hit menopause, hormonal imbalances are generally the cause of the dreaded middle age spread. Weight gain happens and there seems to be nothing we can do about it. No matter how many crunches we do (and let’s face it, who feels like doing them at any of these times), the weight just stays on. What are we to do when our own bodies fight against us?
Here at ThinSculpting, we understand how upsetting and frustrating it can be fighting with an unwanted weight as well as unbalanced hormones. Most of us have been there and we all remember what it was like going through times where we didn’t know what our bodies were trying to do. Often, the weight gain caused by hormonal changes is minor, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less upsetting. We can help you get rid of that stubborn fat through cryolipolysis right here with a non-invasive procedure which means a virtually pain free experience. You’ve been through enough, so call 800-8-THIN-YOU today to see if you qualify for our process and take one thing off your mind!

Sleep Your "Weigh" To Health

How sleep can effect your health and weight loss

Sleep is a glorious thing. That is if you can get it. One problem many people have is the lack of adequate sleep during the night. This can lead to a whole slew of medical problems, and one of these issues is weight. Sleep deprivation does all kinds of things to the brain. One thing that happens is an increase in stress. This has a tendency to increase appetite and can help along with weight gain. It can also make you irritable and if you suffer from mental health problems, lack of sleep can make your symptoms worse. Here are some quick tips to help you sleep.
1. Create a Quiet, Dark Environment. Many sleep scientists say that you should only use your bedroom for sleeping and it should be a calming area. They suggest making the room dark and quiet. Some people sleep better with white noise, such as a fan, but it is suggested to turn the TV off due to possible loud noises (especially since commercials always come in louder) and frequent light flashes.
2. Watch What You Eat and Drink. This is especially true for the few hours before you go to sleep. Avoid anything which can cause indigestion or anything with caffeine for at least two or three hours before you expect to go to sleep. Also, be careful eating anything too soon to bedtime, as the process of digestion can keep you up or give you odd dreams.
3. Set a Schedule. Speaking of bedtime, you should have one. While adults are more able to work on less sleep than children, you should try and have a relatively normal schedule to avoid random bouts of exhaustion throughout the day. While sleeping in isn’t a bad thing, if you find yourself chronically sleeping for hours past when you would normally get up when you have the chance, perhaps try going to bed earlier.
Sleep is an extremely important part of the human body’s system. A circadian rhythm, which the human body works off of, is cyclical and tells us when to sleep. If we don’t listen to it, it can cause lasting trouble. Try setting yourself up on a schedule and see if that helps you both mentally and physically. If you find yourself wanting to lose weight and sleep isn’t a problem, call 1-800-8-THIN-YOU today in Wake Forest and Cary and see if we can help!

CoolSculpting for men: what you want to know

How can ThinSculpting in Wake Forest and Cary help men to freeze fat.

With all of the awareness going across different mediums about unrealistic expectations that the media gives for women, there is a lesser known, but not smaller, problem they are perpetuating. While women are a large target of the media for “fat-shaming” and other horrible things, men are not immune. Many magazines and other forms of media show men as tall, thin, muscular, and charming. Men also suffer from self-image problems which can include eating disorders and other forms of self-harm. Please, if you or someone you love is suffering from one of these things, seek professional help. No one deserves to deal with that and it does not make you weak. I promise.
Sometimes, men are held to standards which are unrealistic and harmful. This can be physically or mentally and emotionally. Men who care about their appearance are generally thought to be effeminate and those who are more emotional are thought to be weak. This is the farthest thing from the truth. If you are trying to keep yourself well-groomed and healthy, there is nothing wrong with that. If you are more emotional than other men, that is not a bad thing. Not being allowed to express yourself is toxic and as long as you are not harming anyone by your emotions, you have nothing to feel bad about.
As most of us know, we are all under a lot of stress. Stress makes it extremely difficult to lose weight and men are no exception to this. The older we get the more difficult it is to lose weight as well. If you are concerned with your weight, always speak to a doctor first. Although they will generally tell you to find a way to lose a few pounds, only a doctor can tell if your weight is concerning on a higher level. If it is just that stubborn belly fat, we may be able to help.
ThinSculpting was created to help those that want to feel better about themselves. This includes you. Our process is FDA approved and is virtually painless. Many people don’t even suffer from side effects, few as they may be. If you think that you may be interested in having some of those extra pounds frozen off, call us today at 800-8-THIN-YOU to see if we can help! We have offices to serve you in Wake Forest and Cary.
