Many people go to the gym regularly and watch what they eat, but still don’t get the results they want. Some of them give up, but some decide to undergo very painful and expensive plastic surgery. Each year, Australians spend approximately $1 billion on plastic surgery. But, did you know that the gym and simple dieting are not the only alternatives to cosmetic surgery? Here are five new trends you must try that are much less painful and much easier on the wallet.

The ketogenic diet will get you ripped 

The keto is one of the most-searched wellness trends in 2017 with new Instagram accounts, cookbooks and blogs about the diet popping up every day. Even though a plant-based diet is still going strong, people are starting to dig into the benefits of high-fat, low-sugar diets. The main goal of the ketogenic diet is to train your body to rely on fat instead of carbs for fuel. When you restrict the intake of carbs, your body enters a state called ketosis in which the body burns fats to produce energy. Keto enthusiasts say that this diet has great anti-inflammatory effects, increases energy levels and muscle mass while decreasing total caloric intake, making you ripped and fit. So, who needs liposuction?

Virtual boxing 

No list of fitness and wellness trends in 2017 can go without boxing, but now this popular physical activity is getting digitalized. Virtual boxing is great for everyone who doesn’t have time to go to the gym but craves some serious sweating. The program is composed of various 30-minute videos of boxing sequences and techniques that you need to mimic. For instance, you can go through a couple of shadow-boxing rounds, HIIT training, and finish off with a knockout round. This is bound to make you fit because you’ll burn up to 600 calories per session. Not bad!

Cryolipolysis: feel the cool 

This revolutionary non-invasive procedure is a great substitute for painful and expensive liposuction. It uses cold to permanently kill fat cells without any surgery. The cooling process targets on fatty areas, such as the belly, inner thighs or love handles, and it lowers the temperature of the area too -9°C. Fat cells during cryolipolysis procedure freeze and gets destroyed at such low temperatures, which results in an instant fat loss. Frozen fat cells are then eliminated naturally from your body.

Power yoga 

Yoga’s been a popular way of sculpting your body and mind for many years now, but if you never wanted to join the trend because of its slow pace, now it’s the time to rethink your decision. Power yoga is done to high-paced modern music and the tempo will just kick your ass. You will sweat as you move, stretch and twist. There’s also a hot power yoga option which is done in a heated and humid room for an extra sweat session. No matter which style you choose, you’ll feel happy and refreshed, but also quite drained. So, if you want to transform your body, mind, and spirit, join power yoga!
