One of the most popular seasons for liposuction in Denver is the summer months when everyone is out in swimsuits. With cooler weather (and more importantly the calorie-packed holidays) just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about a sensible diet that will keep your liposuction results looking great.*
Heat & Hunger
If you think you’re not as hungry when it’s hot out, you’re not imagining it. The body definitely decreases its signals for wanting food during hot weather. Why is this? Because all the activities which take place within the body, including digestion, create heat. In extra hot weather, the body is already straining to keep cool. Since eating will undermine those efforts, the body sends the message that it should eat less, and our appetites decrease.
Additionally, heat also makes us sweat a lot. When we combine this with the sweat lost from being healthy and active, it can add up to enough loss of certain minerals and vitamins to cause imbalances within the body. This, too, can contribute to a suppressed appetite.
Cool Weather and Calories
If you feel like eating more when it starts cooling off, this is because the body is trying to warm up. Warming up takes a lot of energy, and eating keeps our engines stoked with plenty of fuel. Not to mention, all those mouth-watering treats which show up at holiday season, and who wouldn’t want to increase their calorie intake?
It’s very normal to eat more when it’s cooler, and less when it’s warmer. Just try to maintain a steady activity rate in between meals and all year long so that your Denver liposuction results are maximized.*
