Foods to Avoid During Your Weight Loss Journey

coolsculptingCoolsculpting is an ideal way to rid your body of stubborn fat either around your abdomen, upper thighs, buttocks, chin or upper arms. As a non-surgical and FDA approved procedure, CoolSculpting works to freeze fat cells which are then dissolved by your body and excreted through your urine a few months later. As you prepare your body to see the best results possible, it’s important that you take into consideration both your diet and exercise. By avoiding foods that are high in fat, you can help to ensure that you receive the best CoolSculpting results possible. Read on to learn more.


If you go to grab for a glass of wine or can of beer every night when you get home from work, you might want to find another vice to help you relax. Because booze contains a high amount of calories and virtually no nutritional content, you are basically consuming your fair share of empty calories. Although you don’t have to completely eliminate beer from your life, try to only drink it on special occasions such as a celebratory dinner or event.

Red Meat

Yes, it’s true: red meat is the best meat. However, it is the worst meat for you. High in fat that can clog your arteries and cause you to put on the extra pounds, red meat like hamburgers and steak are a no-no if you’re trying to get the best results from your CoolSculpting. Although you should limit your intake of red meat, you can find equally as tasty but healthier options such as turkey burgers.

Processed Foods

No matter where you look it can seem like processed foods are around every corner. From things like frozen pizza to packaged cookies, processed foods provide people with an easy and affordable way to get a good tasting meal. However, that good tasting meal isn’t doing any good for your body. Packed with preservatives, fat, and empty calories, processed foods will not give you that body that you’ve always desired.

Getting CoolSculpting is a great step in the right direction of your weight loss journey. However, if you aren’t eating healthy, then your body won’t get the best results possible. By avoiding the above three foods, you can help to take care of your body. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. York Yates today!

Patient Testimonials

I had a tummy tuck back in March, I am now 3 months post op and my results have exceeded my expectations. Dr. Yates is very professional, honest and friendly! His staff is awesome and made me feel very comfortable. I will be returning to him for other surgeries in the future. I have also been and will be referring friends and family to him too!


“I can’t say enough about Dr. Yates and his staff. Everyone was so professional yet made me feel completely at ease. Dr. Yates is meticulous about his work and this showed at each and every appointment.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Yates to anyone interested in plastic surgery. Should I ever consider any other type of plastic surgery, I would not go to anyone else.

I am extremely pleased with my results.”
