Diet, Nutrition, and Weight Loss

balanced dietHere at blue, we recommend pairing our unique, at-home fat freezing kit with a healthy and well balanced diet. Nourishing your body with the right foods can improve your overall health and help you realize your weight loss goals, while wearing blue can accelerate the results you see with well balanced eating. Moreover, for those who may not be within 20 to 30 percent of their body weight and who are therefore not the best candidates for using blue, proper nutrition can help you come into that range and ultimately reap the benefits that come from using blue.

Diet and nutrition recommendations, of course, vary by individual, and there is a lot of misinformation out there about how nutrition actually factors into an overall weight loss plan. Here is a look at what experts have to say about proper nutrition and using nutrition to realize weight loss goals.

How nutrition can further weight loss

As you may recall from reading our resource page titled Exercise and Weight Loss, the CDC affirms that in order for you to lose weight, the number of calories your body uses per day must be larger than the number of calories consumed, resulting in a “calorie deficit.” Because one pound of fat equals 3,500 calories, you would need to consume 500 fewer calories per day for one week in order to lose one pound. So on the very surface, you might think of weight loss as the result of burning more calories than you take in.

However, it does get much more complex than that. It isn’t only calories that matter; nutrition counts as well. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics emphasizes that an ideal nutrition plan for losing weight is well balanced and incorporates foods from every food group, including carbohydrates, lean proteins, and essential fats. Moreover, a nutrition plan for losing weight should be one that you could feasibly continue to follow for the rest of your life. Ultimately, it’s important to talk with your doctor about the right nutrition plan for your weight loss goals.

When nutrition can fall short in helping you lose weight

Unfortunately, even a proper, well balanced diet can fall short in helping you reach your fitness goals. This can often be traced to biological factors, as some body types are simply more prone to weight gain than others. Failure to lose weight, even with proper nutrition, can also be traced to a slowing metabolism or metabolic fatigue.

Using blue to realize your weight loss goals

We developed our exclusive at-home fat freezing kit to give individuals an edge over their weight loss goals. Where diet and exercise can fall short in helping you reach your weight loss goals, our fat freezing kit can help you finally see the results you have been looking for. Our fat freezing kit works by repeatedly exposing fat cells to cold temperatures, resulting in “fat cell death.” Those fat cells naturally pass through the body, and the result is visible fat loss and reduced cellulite.
