From effective diets and laser technology to fitness classes, dancing and body wraps, there are many options to help you shed unwanted pounds and manage your weight. You can even lose 20 pounds by summer. We know what you are thinking: How exactly am I going to do that when summer is just around the corner? Fret not, because weight-loss and spa experts have a few solutions up their sleeves.

While we cannot explain every single weight-loss treatment available, let us look at some of the most popular and effective ones. These aids and solutions can help anyone create an excellent weight-loss management and maintenance program to achieve that overall leaner, healthier look.

 Take a shot — Firstly, lipodissolve is a noninvasive alternative to liposuction. Lipodissolve involves a series of virtually pain-free injections of multivitamins, alpha-lipid acid and soybean extract administered to different areas of the body where fat seems to congregate.

Secondly, there are the lipotropic injections, containing natural ingredients that enhance the role of the liver and gallbladder by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up the metabolism of fat and its removal. Thirdly, vitamin B-12 shots have been quite popular for speeding up the body’s metabolism, which often leads to weight loss. Vitamin B-12 shots also boost your energy and help curtail stress and depression.

Wrap your body skinny — A body wrap can be specifically designed to help burn fat and target specific fat-prone areas of the body. The gauze used for wrapping the body is soaked in a solution rich in fat-melting enzymes. The wraps not only help melt the fat away, but also release toxins from the body.

Do it like the supermodels — Have you heard of the Dukan Diet? The go-to diet of Hollywood celebrities and supermodels, the Dukan Diet is a healthy eating plan based on the eating habits of — ready for this? — primitive man. It lists the 100 protein-rich foods and vegetables eaten by early hunters and gatherers. The diet is based on phases that walk a client from the introduction of these foods to the body, to the maintenance and stabilization phase, once a goal weight is reached.

How about a full body … detox, that is — Lose all those toxins and chemicals that you have put into your body through processed foods. A full-body detox can give you an internal cleansing to rejuvenate the body. Eliminating these toxins allows your organs to function correctly, leading to a healthier outlook.

Let us get physical — Pole dancing, capoeira (Brazilian martial arts), hip-hop aerobics, Zumba, Bollywood dancing, belly dancing and jazz dance classes — talk about diversity. Each of these classes is guaranteed to help you burn hundreds of calories in one session. Do them many times and your body will look lean, strong and sexy. These are all fun ways to lose weight.

Holistic approach to weight loss — Acupuncture for weight loss basically helps with the detoxification process of the body. It stimulates the kidneys, liver and the nervous system to produce endorphins to make the client feel good. This boost of energy speeds up metabolism, which helps melt the fat away and encourages the client to get up and start moving toward her goal of a fit body.

The list goes on and on, and there are many more ways to lose weight. We do not have enough room here to list them all. But, with the help of technology and advances in beauty treatments, weight loss is now attainable for many who have been struggling for years.
