Many of us have been there... trying the strange or hardcore approaches to get rid of stubborn belly fat. You know, the fad diets that don’t last, ridiculous gimmicks that don’t work, and extreme routines that hurt – all Not Cool.
Before heading off to South Korea to cover the 2018 Winter Games, American figure skater, Johnny Weir, stopped by his local ice rink to chat with people and uncover all the Not Cool – even bizarre – things many of us have tried to lose stubborn belly fat. Check out what these skaters had to say.
CoolSculpting? Now, That’s COOL!
The difference between many of these Not Cool gimmicks and CoolSculpting is… science!
CoolSculpting uses a tried-and-true, FDA-cleared technology called Cryolipolysis®, which was discovered and developed by a group of Harvard scientists. Their research revealed that when using very specific cold temperatures in a controlled setting, freezing fat cells induces their death, and shortly after, the body naturally clears away those dead fat cells. For good!
Freezing the fat is an effective and COOL way to get rid of stubborn belly fat. Plus, the non-surgical treatment isn't just for the abdomen and flanks. CoolSculpting can also help reduce fat in these areas: upper arms, double-chin, thighs, bra fat, back fat, and underneath the buttocks.
What is Stubborn Belly Fat?
It’s that persisting layer of fat around your midsection – the little pooch or extra "love" in the love handles.
This is the fat that no matter how determined you are, which fat-loss trick you try, or how hard you workout – your midsection just doesn't seem to want to slim down.
Basically, if you have some pinchable fat that simply refuses to go away, it could be what you classify as "stubborn."
And that is just Not Cool.
Stubborn Belly Fat is So Not Cool.
Because belly fat can be so darn stubborn, many of us resort to extreme alternatives to get rid of it. Johnny uncovered that some people have even ended up putting themselves in ridiculous, humiliating, and sometimes painful situations.
From hiding under baggy clothes to strapping on sauna vests, from smearing on "fat-melting" gels to even shrink-wrapping our midsections, Johnny heard it loud and clear: so many of us have "been there, done that" when it comes to the Not Cool ways of trying to get rid of that stubborn belly fat.
What Makes CoolSculpting COOL?
CoolSculpting is the #1 most performed non-surgical body sculpting procedure¹.
With the millions of treatments performed worldwide, clearance by the FDA, and advanced technology that has been analyzed in controlled clinical studies and described in more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, CoolSculpting is a safe and effective way to get rid of that unwanted fat without surgery and with little to no downtime.
As a CoolSculpting patient himself, Johnny Weir agrees. He’s used the non-surgical, fat freezing treatment to stay on top of his game this winter. How COOL is that?
