As the saying goes, summer bodies are made in winter. However if you feel as if you’ve spent all summer preparing for winter instead, now is the time to take action.

Autumn-winter wardrobes and countless, well, let’s say seasonal parties are beckoning - but does your body confidence need a boost to really enjoy them? The good news is that it could be easier than you think to look how you’d like come the cold months. The trick is to remember that winter bodies are made in autumn.

Whether you’re dreading pulling on a sweater from last year and having to buy a bigger size, or simply fed up with small, stubborn pockets of fat there are three things that can help. Treatment. Exercise. Diet. The reality is while treatments are by far the easiest, they are often only successful when combined with a healthy diet and sensible exercise for long-term results. All three are achievable though – it just takes a little planning.

If you’ve ever been for a waxing appointment, you’ll know that timing is important. For the best results, hairs need to be treated at a certain point in their growth cycle or they will re-appear sooner than hoped. For maximum results, a few treatments will be needed to get on top on the cycle. Similar is true when tackling unwanted fat – it is best to get in a good routine.

3D Lipo body contouring is the amazing non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Equally suitable men and women, this treatment combines fat freezing and ultrasound for fat reduction, radio frequency for skin tightening and even vacuum rollering to tackle cellulite and improve skin tone.

It really does cover everything. As no downtime is needed with 3D Lipo, you won’t need to worry about taking weeks off work or not driving. However, as mentioned there are a few things that you should do afterwards to stay in your new shape.

Firstly, aim for a healthy diet - a couple choices can make a lot of difference. Staying hydrated will help to keep fat in check and leave your skin looking great too. Try having a refillable bottle with you wherever you go so you can take regular sips at your desk, watching TV or while you’re waiting for a bus.

Cutting down on sugar intake can also help and here as well, little and often is best. So, rather than sending your body into shock and simply craving everything in sight, try leaving out one treat at a time to create a lasting habit.

Finally, don’t forget exercise. It may feel difficult or annoying to start with, but regular cardio like running, walking and swimming will really help to burn fat. Pilates, weights and even bowls are all brilliant for toning and increasing core strength.

Plus, it won’t take long before you’re in another good habit and looking forward to those endorphins.
