Buy a piece of clothes and magically lose weight? Sounds great, right? Lately, we often have a chance to see Kim Kardashian exercising and losing weight precisely thanks to this method – by wearing a corset. This method was actually celebrated by a famous actress Jessica Alba who said that this was her way of losing weight after two pregnancies. According to her claims, she didn’t include any workout, she only wore a corset during night and day for full three months. Is corset diet really that effective and does it yield permanent results?
Corset diet – temporary or a permanent solution?
Wearing corset can really help lose weight. There are numerous before and after images as a proof. However, doctors and nutritionists warn us claiming that this is only a temporary solution which works as long as you are willing to wear a corset. Besides, the moment we wear one, we’ll notice changes at our body even without having to lose any weight.
As soon as you wear a corset, you’ll get a slimmer look. However, losing weight with the help of this garment has a simple explanation. Since your belly is tucked in, it’s impossible to eat as much food as before. And if you somehow manage to do that, you’ll throw up, says one physician. Experts also say that the secret doesn’t lie in losing fat, but in a different distribution of fat. It didn’t go away, you’ve simply “put” it somewhere else.
Consequences of wearing corset
Corset diet can be detrimental to your health. If you tight a corset too hard, you risk on injuring your internal organs like the liver or spleen. Apart from that, you can feel weak or even faint due to oxygen deprivation. Namely, corset reduces the capacity of lungs for 30 t 60 %. You’ll look nice but also breathe like a frightened rabbit. Furthermore, if you pair exercising with corset wearing, you need to pay special attention during cardio workouts and tight it so you don’t feel uncomfortable and that you can breathe with full lungs. If you have difficulties with reflux, you should consider a solution other than this to look slimmer.
Despite obvious flaws of this “invention”, corset remains a wonderful piece of clothes that gives women a gorgeous figure. But, we shouldn’t exaggerate. If you decide to go for this idea, size down corset gradually and don’t wear it during night. Let the body breathe. Nothing can ever replace a good workout combined with a healthy diet which will ensure that lost pounds never return. Besides, we know that Kim Kardashian is constantly on some kind of diet and her figure is by no means a pure result of sitting in a corset.
Be proud of your body because you are unique. Don’t change for anyone. If somebody’s gonna love you, it will be because of who you are not your figure. Be the best version of yourself and don’t do anything which makes you feel uncomfortable.
