Waist Training Do's & Don't
Due to their restrictive nature around the midsection of the body, corsets put pressure on vital organs and can even strangle them, leading to permanent body damage when worn for extended periods of time.
From physical disorders such as meralgia paresthetica, blood clots, and gastroesophageal reflux disease to hindering and impacting a woman's menstrual cycle, there's a lot of reasons why waist training can even be deadly.
Here are three reasons why you should not hurt your body and waist train.
Experts say spot training does not produce lasting weight-loss results. It takes time for our bodies to adjust to change. True improvement takes time, so it's best to do things the right way with diet and exercise. There is no magic to pushing around body fat or getting muscles to conform to a forced shape. If you want to have a small waist, then you have to put in the work. Especially if you want to lose weight. If your body refuses to be pushed past a certain plateau, chances are you are where you need to be.
Waist training corsets might be pretty, but they aren't worth the potential kidney damage. Factoring in the cost and time associated with the long-term damage waist trainers can cause, there's really no denying that it's not worth the health risk. Sure you get a smaller waist in less time than you would with diet and exercise. But, as the corset helps you slim down your waist, it is also putting pressure on your stomach and kidneys. Pressure on the kidneys reduces blood supply to your organs. This could lead to bladder infections or stomach problems, neither of which are cost effective.
You get less oxygen when you wear a corset. The whole point of looking and feeling better about your body is to have a sense of confidence and freedom in your skin. But waist training does the exact opposite. When you wear a corset, pressure is placed on your other vital organs, and your lungs feel the pinch, too. Even if you wear the garment for a short period of time, the only way to have any lasting effects is to put it back on. That's no way to treat your lungs. Although it is rare to pass out while wearing one, shallow breathing creates other health problems such as increased risk of fluid buildup in the lungs.
Stick to a healthy diet and exercise along with a healthy dose of self-acceptance. Love the body you are in. Understand that most of these before/after photos (see my previous post) are fake, scams to sell a product or are of those who have gone under the knife to make their body look a certain way.
