Back in the olden days, the only way to lose a few pounds was to cut back on your eating and exercise more. Well thankfully for us all, those clever scientists have been busy coming up with faster and more convenient ways of helping us towards that beach body. There are now dozens of weight loss treatments out there, all different yet all promising the same thing: shedding the pounds with minimal effort. So whether you’re looking to get wrapped up like a mummy, plugged into a Power Plate, or sweat it out the old fashioned way, there really is something for everyone.

New technology is all about encouraging faster weight loss from those stubborn fatty areas. Yes, we’re talking bums, tums and thighs – the bits that are usually last to go. A revolutionary technology that has gained popularity in recent times is Vacunaut, which works by applying pressure to the middle section of your body while you partake in a gentle jog on the treadmill. This encourages blood flow to the lower regions of your body, helping you use those fatty deposits that can be hard to shift with normal exercise. Don’t fancy the jog? Fear not, electro stimulation may be the way forward. Certain machines, such as Power Plates, can contract and relax your muscles - almost as if you’re doing exercise while you lie there. Not that we’re lazy of course…

There are also a number of weight loss treatments at your local salon, which don’t involve machines that look like they’re from a science fiction movie. The body wrap is a contouring product that can tighten, tone, and firm any area of the body by getting you sweaty and removing excess water. It’s not one to sit around the pool sipping a gin and tonic, but body wraps like the Universal Contour Wrap claim to shrink a minimum of six inches per sessions and regular treatment can result in smoother skin with less visible cellulite.

Not feeling those new-fangled techniques? You can’t go wrong with the old tried and tested method of healthy eating and exercise. Personal trainers can design custom routines and nutritionists, diets to target certain areas of your body and help you lose weight quicker. Or maybe you want to inject a bit of fun into your exercise? Why not join in with the hundreds of unique group exercise classes across the country, from boot camps to health farms to yoga, you feel like flab to fab in no time...
