Over the last 21 months since Bubba arrived, I was relying on a healthy diet and exercising (if you call once a month- exercising) to lose the MUCH HATED MOMMY TUMMY. So when there was an opportunity to review Marie France Bodyline (I thought about if I should go for a ‘shortcut ’ as did my research on them), I was quick to sign up and eager try out the treatments. My excuse for the easy way out: I have plateaued (I would think my lame regime worked) in my weight lost and body-firming mission AND I needed a catalyst to reduce the MOMMY TUMMY FAST!!!
Marie France Bodyline was established in Switzerland and has more than 25 years of experience in weight management. It engages intensive research across their laboratories worldwide to develop solutions to address major female body issues like cellulite, water retention and excess body fat.
Last week, I visited Marie France Bodyline at the Tampines branch for my FIRST slimming treatment. I have always been hesitant about slimming centers and I thought they were always a hoax, with exaggerated results and gimmicky techniques. I finally joined the ladies league like Irene Ang, Christy Chung and Kym Ng. When I entered, I was greeted by the warm smiles of the friendly staff who served me tea (part of the detox?) and thereafter my weight, BMI (Body Mass Index) and total body fat was calculated.
After the report was printed, I was led to the nutri-consultation room for the nutritionist to understand my eating habits and to trim my diet for me. It’s just like having a personal nutritionist cater a specialized diet for my metabolism and my body type. The nutritionist analyzed the report and advised me that I only need to lose 2kg to pre-pregnancy weight (wow!). She discussed in detail how I can firm up by changing my eating habits, implementing a more regular exercise regime and a couple of slimming treatments. It’s very exciting as I can feel the motivation to becoming the svelte Katherine before I had Bubba.
New eating habits
Have a proper breakfast to kick start fat burning. Suggestion: Cup of yogurt (protein) + fruits or/and vegetable or Oats
Drink warm lemon water first thing in the morning to detox- for better radiant looking skin.
Eat fruits and vegetable before meal- curb cravings later at night and help the body to absorb the nutrients better. Reduce carbohydrates during dinner time- cut rice by half.
Snacks at night should be a warm cup of milk or nuts- Almond and pistachios for their vitamin E and Omega.
After the consultation, I did the latest treatment that they had to offer to counter the dreaded MUMMY TUMMY (love handles)- Intensive Spot Shaping and the Contour Sculpt Body System. The treatment sounded very powerful and I was thrilled to start the treatment.
The Intensive Spot Shaping (ISS) works on the problem areas- like my love handles. The therapist started off massaging the clear gel-like anti-cellulite serum into my love handles, I felt a tingling sensation as she used the machine to massage in a circular motion to penetrate into my skin. After the application, the target area became really hot and she continued to massage for another 20 minutes and explained that the fat burning process had started. She later proceeded to wrap me in bandage soaked in a freezing cold treatment solution for another 20 minutes.
After the treatment, my love handle area still felt really warm and tingly and I felt the flab around the area is tighter (like kneading playdoh into shape)- it would have been better if I had more sessions to shrink the flab further.
