The structure of the human face is very complicated. The complex musculature system lies beneath the compartmentalized layers of subcutaneous fat which is then topped with a layer of skin. All these together cover the boney sections which make the face. The layer of subcutaneous fat forms the facial fullness majorly. But, it is highly susceptible to grow thin when the body sheds fat.
But, a strategic weight loss plan which is accompanied by exercise, ample amount of hydration, and facial exercise can help you have a beautiful looking face even when your body is becoming thin.
So, if you wish to see no changes in your facial fullness while you lose weight, follow these tips.
To lose weight properly you must know your body mass index first (BMI). When you know where exactly to start from, your goals will look much more realistic and achievable. You can calculate the BMI by diving your weight by your height x height. For example, if your weight is 60 kg and your height is 1.70m then the formula for calculating your BMI would be 60 / (1.7x1.7)= 20.8. The BMI ranges from 18.5 and 24.9 percent. When you opt to attain a mid-range BMI you can have a healthy face and lose weight at the same time.
Don’t aim at a massive weight loss right in the beginning. Have a slow and steady approach. This will help you maintain muscle mass while losing weight.
Before you start off with a weight loss program, know your calorie requirement to maintain your current weight. Then, cut down the consumption of calories by 250. Also, you must increase your physical activities and burn extra calories. This will help you lose 0.5 pounds in a week.
You must aim at working out for 150 minutes in a week. This will help a steady weight loss.
The weight you are trying to achieve must be realistic. If you try to attain a body weight which is lower than your required body mass, the body may become lean but, your facial muscles may appear to be leaner. Set a goal which is ideal for your entire body.
Instead of dieting and starving yourself, you must attain a healthy lifestyle. Make sure healthy living becomes a part of your routine. Drink lots of water and start feeling good about life. This will let your stay happy and give you reasons to smile and have healthy face muscles.
If you are aiming at losing weight without having the effects on your face, a healthy lifestyle and continuous workout is the key.
