3 Foods to Avoid After Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most effective ways in which to get rid of unwanted body fat around those stubborn portions of your body. If you have recently undergone liposuction surgery, then you know just how important it is to continue to maintain your newly slimmed down physique. However, sometimes bad habits get the best of us and before we know it we are back in the same saddle we were in before surgery. In order to prevent bad habits from arising and to ensure that your body stays as slim as possible, avoid these 3 foods.


  1. Butter
    Butter is likely one of the best foods ever invented, and you can eat butter but just sparingly. If you notice that you are buttering your bread, your waffles, your vegetables, and just about everything else in sight, then it’s time to back away from this delicious fatty food. Because the fat content in butter is so high, it is one of the quickest ways to fill the fat cells in your body again. So, if you can, try to leave the butter behind and grab a healthier snack instead.
  2. Sodas
    Diet sodas excluded, soda is one of the worst beverages for your body, especially in regards to your weight. If you drink a soda or more a day, it won’t do anything for your liposuction results. Instead, try switching from soda to unsweetened ice tea or if you’re really feeling up for a challenge, switch from soda to water. With all of the added calories and sugars that are in each drink, if you cut out just one soda a day, you will see results.
  3. Bacon
    Yes, bacon wrapped anything can appease just about every craving ever known to man, however, this salty and sweet meat is loaded with saturated fats which will only contribute to you gaining back any weight you may have lost during liposuction. So the next time you want to reach for a handful of delicious, crispy bacon, think again and opt for a healthier alternative like turkey bacon.
