Back in the days, I used to believe a gal can massage, apply cream, and/or eat diet pills to rid of fat instead of exercise and healthy eating. After discussing this with a plastic surgeon pal, he tried to sell me the Golden Gate Bridge after hearing the massage and cream methods. He must be thinking why is she so gullible. As the story goes, a friend tells me of a popular massage method which a gal is encouraged to eat all the fatty food prior to her massage session. The masseuse claimed she could massage fat from the stomach region into the boob area. That sounded pretty good, right? A gal gets to eat and get bigger boobs at the same time. Quite a few gal pals went through these massage sessions. They did get bigger boobs but from fried chickens rather than massage sessions.
Anyway, I found out we are born with a set number of fat cells. As we gain weight, each cell becomes bigger and as we lose weight, each cell becomes smaller. Thus our body changes according to these changes. Big cells, a gal looks bigger; smaller cells, a gal looks skinnier. Fat cells are held together with connective tissues like other cells in a body so if anyone tries to massage the cells apart, internal bleeding and major bruising will surely occur.
Basically to look skinnier, a gal needs to either go through liposuction to actually surgically removed fat issues or make sure fat cells become smaller through diet and exercise. Liposuction can assist to rid of fat cells in a specific area but once those fat cells are gone and a person gains weight, those extra calories have to be stored somewhere else. Thus, wouldn't other fat cells become even bigger causing certain regions of the body gain even more weight and looking bigger due to uneven distribution of fat as result of liposuction. Hmmm.... diet and exercise sound pretty good to me now. I figure there is really no easy short cut to weight management and looking skinnier. By exercising, I will gain muscle and body definition, and smaller fat cells which will allow me to have more energy, and looking my best without any negative side effects of surgery or pills. What do you think, which method do you prefer exercise or lipo? What is the craziest getting rid of fat story you have heard?
