shape of hearts. For extra love, add strawberries or raspberries to complete the Valentine’s Day vibe.
REFLECTIONS OF LOVE While you’re busy cooking up a feast, your kids will most likely visit the bathroom to get ready for the day. What will they see when they walk in?

BEYOND ELIMINATING BODY FAT
How Emsculpting Tones and Strengthens Muscle
When you’re trying to look like your best self, you can do more than just get rid of excess body fat. CoolSculpting will absolutely get rid of any pesky flab that sticks around regardless of proper diet and exercise, but that’s only half the battle. What about the
that the procedure is proven to work as intended and is largely painless. The device issues electromagnetic pulses to your muscles, which simulate muscle contractions. These contractions cause muscles to release chemicals that signal fat cells to break down their contents into fatty acids, which then overwhelm and kill those fat cells. Then, they’re metabolized normally through the body. That’s not all. While Emsculpting breaks down fat, it simultaneously builds up muscle fibers. One study found that Emsculpting patients experienced muscle fiber growth of 16%. Receiving electromagnetic pulses might sound extremely painful, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. While there’s not quite any feeling to which you could directly compare Emsculpting, the company describes the feeling as “like an intensive workout.” Any discomfort is mild and bearable, and there is no residual pain after the treatment. This treatment is a supplement to a proper diet and exercise — not a substitute. I’ve used Emsculpting to help me play golf better, and I can speak to its effectiveness.

It’s a procedure that’s meant to strengthen and tone various muscle groups (most popularly, the abdominal and gluteal regions) without risking overexertion in the gym. Just one 30-minute treatment to your abs is equivalent to 20,000 crunches! With claims like that, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re a bit skeptical. Most people are when they first hear about Emsculpting. Rest assured, however,
