Everyone has been affected by the COVID19 pandemic in some form or another. Chicago is now going on over a year of restrictions and life is still nowhere near back to normal, however, we are definitely seeing things shift slowly but surely! If you just look back on what you did during the lockdown, we’re sure your answer will not be that much different than others. Eat, slept, scrolled through our social media news feeds, order food and groceries online, work from home, and repeat for months on end.

What’s missing from the equation? Exercise! Healthy eating! Many folks were in panic mode so comfort foods and convenience were the go-to’s. Even though several fitness trainers took this opportunity to launch their online fitness classes, it was a lot more fun to see their ripped bodies and well-designed home gyms while munching on our home-delivered, cheese pizzas than getting up and following in their footsteps.

It was like the world had finally given us a chance to do what we do best… Be lazy! And we loved it. We weren’t being invited to parties or weddings anyways. Even over Zoom calls, no one could see what we looked like from waist down, and so we became extra comfortable in our sedentary ways!

But all good things must come to an end! Just when many got used to the new normal, the world is opening up again, and now we must get into a routine like 2019 and bein to head to the office, gatherings, parties and socialize. Societal pressure is on us once again!

But listen, if you really want to get rid of those extra pounds and you only have 2 months before you are called to work at the office, then here are some tried and tested methods for losing that COVID weight:

Body Contouring

Non-invasive body contouring services are a surefire way to get a hot and sexy figure in weeks or months. Treatments like laser liposuction, ultrasound body cavitation, vacuum therapy and radiofrequency are 100% safe, painless and effective for fat reduction.

In just 6 to 8 weekly sessions, you will see a major change in your figure. Thanks to these advanced technologies, stubborn fat pockets are melted and eliminated out of the body, naturally, without even a single incision being made. In fact, some customers have labeled these treatments to be so relaxing and comfortable that they have drawn parallels between body massage and body contouring.

The greatest benefit of body contouring treatments is that it doesn’t just eliminate the stubborn fat from your body, but it also lifts the skin on the problem areas and makes it firmer and tighter than before. So, even if fat is not the main culprit for you, the sagging skin can now be contoured without any surgery and make your body look athletic.

Keto Diet

The Keto diet is a low-carb diet and works wonders for people who are unable to lose weight fast just by exercising. Instead of eating carbohydrates like rice, pasta, wheat, potatoes and sugary treats, you should focus on proteins, fiber and good fats like lean meat, eggs, green vegetables, legumes and nuts. The Keto diet is very effective if you want to lose that COVID weight within a few weeks. By staying away from carbohydrates, you are not giving your body any extra calories (sugars) that can be stored as fat. Therefore, your body uses up the stored fat and converts it into energy to keep you active throughout the day.

Intermittent Fasting

During intermittent fasting, you are only allowed to eat within a specific time frame. For the rest of the day, you must observe a fast and abstain from eating meals or drinking sugary beverages. However, throughout the day, you must drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated and energized.

The most common method of intermittent fasting is the 16:8 ratio. It means that during the 24 hours, you can eat for 8 hours and fast for the remaining 16 hours. Now the definitely does not mean that for the 8 hours of eating time, you keep eating non-stop and become an oversized balloon. It just means that you will have to either have to skip your breakfast or your dinner because you can only fit 2 meals per day in the 8-hour eating window.

The best way to observe intermittent fasting is by eating a healthy breakfast, taking a light lunch, and skipping dinner. It has proven to be very effective for losing weight in a short span of time.

30 Mins of Cardio

You will not see the desired results unless you burn those extra calories with 30 mins of cardio every day. Jog, run, play soccer, skip, or climb up and down the stairs of your house 10 to 20 times. Do whatever it takes to make sure that for at least 30 minutes, your heart muscles get worked, and blood rushed through your veins.

So, Chicagoans, if you want to lose that COVID weight fast, just try the 4 simple ways we have mentioned above. We assure you that within 2 months, you will be better-looking than you used to be before the pandemic.
