Why Is It So Hard to Lose Weight?

Why Is It So Hard to Lose Weight?

Have you changed your diet, started moving more, and done everything else you can to lose weight, but still have stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t budge? You’re not alone. Many men and women struggle to shed excess fat without success.

While Rickie Guida, WHNP-BC and the team at Alpenglow Gynecology in Littleton, Colorado, don’t have a magic solution for losing stubborn fat, we come close with the nonsurgical truSculpt 3DⓇ system.

If you’re wishing away excess fat, keep reading to learn why it’s so hard to lose weight and how truSculpt 3D can help you get the body you’ve worked hard for.

Why is shedding stubborn fat so hard?

Some people develop fatty deposits under the surface of your skin or around muscle — even when they don’t weigh more than they should. These fatty pockets can add a few pounds when you step on the scale, but they don’t make you overweight or obese. 

Instead, this type of fat can make your silhouette appear lumpy or bumpy, change the way clothes fit, and cause your self-esteem to take a hit. But even if you exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet, it can be nearly impossible to get this stubborn fat to budge.

That’s because when you aren’t overweight, your body doesn’t shed fat in specific areas easily. You can exercise to improve muscle tone and continue to watch what you eat, but because you don’t need to drop excess pounds, it’s nearly impossible to target fat in specific areas.

How can I lose stubborn fat?

At Alpenglow Gynecology, Rickie hears from many patients frustrated by these difficult-to-lose areas of fat. That’s why our practice offers nonsurgical, truSculpt 3D to help you achieve the body you’ve worked so hard for. 

The system works using monopolar radiofrequency (RF) heat energy to give you amazing results — without the need for surgical intervention or invasive procedures. Instead, truSculpt 3D uses heat energy to target fat cells in almost any area of your body where you have stubborn fat.

While diet and exercise work to shrink fat cells all over your body, truSculpt 3D permanently destroys fat in targeted areas. After treatment, your body breaks down and removes the dead cells through your lymphatic system, the way it does all natural bodily waste. 

TruSculpt 3D’s RF energy frequency safely penetrates layers of skin and fat to effectively blast unwanted fat at the same time, it triggers your body’s natural collagen and elastin production. This means you end up with smoother, more elastic skin and less noticeable dimpling and cellulite.

These pain-free sessions only take 15-45 minutes, and you’ll start to see noticeable results in about 4-6 weeks. It takes around 12 weeks for your full result to appear, as your body must naturally dispose of the blasted fat cells. 

After one session, you can experience up to a 24% reduction in fat cells in the targeted treatment area. But most of our patients at Alpenglow Gynecology benefit from multiple sessions to reach their aesthetic goals.
