Red Light Therapy and Weight Loss

Healthy weight loss could be challenging nowadays, mostly with the dieting industry, generally promoting restriction, which we all know by now leads to compulsion.

To lose weight in a healthy way, we need to rework our relationship with food, understand what triggers us and rethink our lifestyle. The body and the mind go together, are intimately linked and can not be separated, so to be in a healthy state, whether it is for your body or your mind, you need to work on the 3 MAJOR FACTORS: -your food, your sleep and your physical activity.

Imagine now, you have got these three levels of your life cleared, you eat healthy balanced meals, you get at least 6-7h of sleep every night and you do some exercise at least 3 times per week. The results will be impressive; you’ll start to see psychological and physical benefits.

Red light therapy is becoming your healthy buddy, same as some have gym buddies that motivate them to go to the gym, eat healthy etc, your red light therapy wrap can motivate you by the effects it gives. So yes, of course it won’t text you to hit the gym, but it will definitely improve your muscle recovery after a nice leg’s session.

Besides the fact that it actually penetrates the skin and reaches the fat cells, tears up those fat cells and releases fat waste (that you should of course follow the protocol in order to achieve the results), it also helps reduce cellulite, helps avoid muscle loss and actually enhances proper muscle recovery.

Studies have found that red light therapy can reduce body fat by up to 24% in just six weeks. One study published in 2009 found that women who received red light therapy lost an average of 3.5 inches from their waist and hips, while men lost an average of 2.4 inches from their waist and hips. Another study in 2018 showed that red light therapy combined with exercise led to a significant reduction in body weight, body fat percentage, and waist circumference.

Red light therapy has also shown promising results when it comes to the prevention of skin loosening after important weight losses. Through its anti-aging skin properties, it does help the skin maintain much of its elasticity and minimizes the “saggy” effect!

RLT is an effective and safe weight loss solution that can improve overall health and well-being. It is a non-invasive treatment that works by stimulating the body's natural processes, leading to a reduction in body fat, an increase in muscle mass, and improved metabolism. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, red light therapy can help individuals achieve their weight loss goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

In conclusion, combining enough hydration, healthy meals, exercise, red light therapy at least 4 times per week and using a dry brush, you can just say hello to your new body that you have built through your own efforts (with the help of your little new buddies).
