Lipostabil works at the site of fat deposits to dissolve body fat and eliminate bulges.
It is a much newer technique than liposuction, which was a process where the excess fat was drawn out through plastic or cosmetic surgery.
The Lipostabil procedure is non-invasive and it melts your excess fat away without surgery.
You may need a series of injections to get rid of the excess fat in affected parts of your body. The procedure has been gaining popularity as well-known actresses use it to keep in unwatned pounds off. Many people feel that Lipostabil is a miracle in the way that it eliminates unwanted fat. The shots consist of a number of drugs that destroy your fat cells, and then they are eliminated from your body through urination and bowel movements.
Lipostabil has proven to be effective for people who have tried many diet plans but have not had success with them. It is particularly effective in the thighs, hips, back and abdomen. The injections into fatty areas include various substances, including L-Carnitine and Phosphatidylcholine, which are believed to be effective at reducing the pads of fat in the areas being treated. It looks as though the PPC can enhance the solubility of cholesterol, changing the fat deposit arrangements, and slowing down the accumulation of plaque in your body. The fat-dissolving injections are said to infiltrate the cells of fat, making them softer and water soluble. In this way, the fat can be disposed of through bowel movements.
The Lipostabil procedure has met with varied results, and they depend to a degree on the size of the area that is being treated. In the majority of cases, people who take these injections do have a loss of one to five cm of fat for each treatment. The areas that show the greatest amount of fat loss are the belly and waist areas, and the area of least change is the legs. A healing time is allowed between injections, and the sessions are usually done over a period of four to six weeks. Benefits are usually noted after one to three weeks.
The L-Carnitine utilized in Lipostabil also appears in your body as methionine and lysine acids. It transports fatty acids to be burned as energy and enhances your body’s natural metabolism. Side effects of Lipostabil include scarring and necrosis where the injections are done, as well as diarrhea, blisters, nausea and headaches.
After-effects of the injections include itching, localized heat, moderate or severe edema, bruising and redness. The side effects may show up within two to five days after the fat injections are administered. The side effects typically disappear after three to seven days. Patients have found relief from edema with the use of compression on the affected parts of the body, with compression clothing.
The Lipostabil treatments, like any medical treatment, do not work in 100% of cases. Selecting a qualified physician to administer the injections and following his advice after the treatment are keys to your successful weight loss. Three to six injections are sometimes required to get the preferred results. Be sure to stay in contact with your physician after the treatments to report fat loss and any side effects.

When I first started out as an artist in 1990, there were hundreds of struggling artists in Austin complaining of not finding any “real” work. Of course an artist who works regularly is successful, and balances their energy between being creative and being entrepreneurial. Many talented people refuse to do it this way. They focus on the art itself… the fun part! That’s important, too, but almost not as important as the business side. It’s like my design professor said at university, “Talent is only 10%. That piece of paper is only worth 5.” There are plenty of gifted people out there who never achieve their goals because they don’t know how to package, sell or market what they have to offer.

Everything soon came together for me, and I realized this business approach works in every aspect of life if you truly want to find direction and make tangible progress. It even works for health and fitness. In fact, it works quite well!

Think of this as a business workshop for your health. Begin by looking at the development of a diet and fitness program as if you were starting your own small business, and the product you are manufacturing is a newer, fitter, healthier, better-organized, more motivated, sexier you.

Industrial-Strength or Lemon Scented?
Begin by choosing a name for your Product and writing a mission statement for your company ― one which means a lot to you and will drive every decision you make about your “business.” For instance a name like “No Excuses” or “Be Ready” tells you instantly each time you read it what your objective should be for every decision you make. My personal brand name is “I Will Be Unreasonable: I will not reason my way out of anything by making excuses.” I’m an artist so it only makes sense that I live my life as unreasonably as possible. But my business aim is in the statement, moving towards a targeted goal. Concentrate on your name and mission statement every time you blow out the candles on your company’s anniversary cake, and every other time you need to remind yourself about what’s most important to you and to your life.

The Sweet Smell of Sweat!
I’m no athlete. When I was a kid, I was always picked last for team sports. I’d run the other way before a dreaded dodge ball nailed me in PE. I scored a soccer goal once! For the other team. But just because I have a checkered athletic history doesn’t mean I don’t like to exercise. In fact, I’ve learned over the years that I pretty much love it.

I thank my lucky stars that my parents signed me up for the Champions Swim Team at the age of 4. Not only because it was fun (and sometimes I was picked second to last for team sports), but also because it was there that I learned to swim and to compete. I was not a strong swimmer. I was always a delicate build. I had no strong muscles like my friends were born with, and had a deep fear of heights which prevented me from the Diving Team. So the second year my parents decided that we would just swim for fun and that made all the difference. Now I go swimming as often as I can. It makes me ridiculously happy to be immersed in water.

The days of disco introduced me to roller skating parties and roller derby, enticing us with “speed skates” and “couples skates,” Xanadu, and a whole lot of girl fights. I still have a tendency to pull out my old roller skates (the ones with the pink wheels) and roll around the ad agency where I work ― for speed purposes, of course. But you would be surprised at how much traction you can get from the office carpet and get a incredible 3 o’clock energy boost, unlike the usual office party birthday cake sugar fix. It also gets me out of the office quicker so I can have more quality time afterhours.

The best exercise for me was always jazz, tap, and ballet. My most strenuous programs. Three classes three times a week plus recitals! And I excelled at it. I was always good at ballet, tap and jazz. I may not have been blessed with muscles, but I had definite rhythm and from the time I was born I loved music. I enjoyed jazz more than anything. Later in life this resulted in taking weekly Jazzercise classes that with a friend when we got off work. And I still take ballet classes to this day.

Then one day at our office gym I wandered into a yoga class when I wasn’t in the mood for aerobics or stepping. I was immediately hooked. Obsessed. Yoga changed my life. Now I’ve tried just about every kind of yoga there is. They’re gonna make me go to rehab.

Of course, sometimes a swim is just a swim, a yoga class is just a yoga class, ballet is just ballet, and there’s nothing life changing about it. But when a swim or a class is pretty darn good, it’s just great. All this to say, when it comes to exercise, find your bliss.

Change Your View to Increase Results
I believe the most important difference between this time and all of my failed attempts at weight loss is the change in my thoughts and views. I viewed exercise as a short-term weight loss plan or something that athletes and naturally fit people pursued. I figured it would be very difficult for me because I was not athletic and therefore was inept at exercise. This of course, meant that I should give up and leave it to the “natural born athletes.” Boy, was I wrong…

Remember, just as in business, the choices you make today have a direct effect on results you will experience tomorrow. Many people starting a new fitness routine work too hard or long, and consequently feel overwhelmed and quickly give up. Avoid this “jump start/failure cycle” by starting small. Start with the type of challenge that you will be most comfortable completing on a regular basis. The smaller the challenge, the quicker it will begin to feel easy. Seeing and feeling your physical fitness improve provides fantastic motivation.

Use this knowledge to motivate yourself to make healthier choices today and empower yourself to create a healthier tomorrow.

The Benefits of Cardio

This cardio exercise requires you to have some core muscles, else it will be very difficult to make right and it won’t last for long, thus, not very effective.

However, if you have practiced normal push-ups for a long time and feel you’re ready for a more demanding exercise at home – try the Spiderman Push-ups!

A cardio video I found really useful. Showing a lot of cardio exercises you can do at home.

This home cardio workout is simple but powerful. It requires you to have a medicine ball.

Pick a pretty light medicine ball. Hold it straight ahead and lift the right knee up to waist level so it lightly touches the ball, and then same with the left knee. Do it for 1 minute and repeat as long as you can.

You can also check out this quick video to see how to do this home cardio exercise with a medicine ball.

Jumping rope is about to be discussed now. This cardio exercise can be done from home without any inconvenience,  thus my favorite home cardio exercise.
First of all, no need of home exercise equipment, so no, you can’t use that as an excuse.
Secondly, it’s a super effective exercise that will both build muscle and burn fat in all parts of your body – a full body cardio exercise.
Only 20-30 minutes of rope jump a few times a week is enough for great results long-term. Don’t forget, eating some fruits after cardio exercisising is greatly going to help.

Here is a video of the cardio exercise rope jumping.
