In these modern times obesity has become very frequent, but unfortunately this weight issue brings many severe health conditions. Obesity can result from various factors, and because of that the treatments are different.
In order to treat this issue many methods are being applied, but there are not always positive results. Fortunately, researchers have found out the reason for it.
As per recently conducted Yorkshire Health study that secured a participation of 4,000 obese adults, made the following categorization. The obese people were divided in 6 categories:
Young healthy females – obese women, this group experienced less obesity-related issues, such as type 2 diabetes.
Heavy-drinking males – obese men, these men also did not experience quite a lot health issues, but they showed higher alcohol intake.
Unhappy and anxious middle-aged – (in most cases women)who were with damaged mental health and wellbeing.
Affluent and healthy elderly – obese people with prevailing good health, but proneto higher alcohol intake and high blood pressure.
Physically sick but happy elderly – older obese people having good mental health, but struggling with chronic diseases such as osteoarthritis.
Poorest health – obese people dealing with many chronic diseases and at the lowest economical level.
In this study every factor was taken into consideration which resulted in obesity in people. Once the real reason is determined for this weight condition, the treatment can be more effective and successful.
You are already familiar with the fact that fat is differently distributed in people, and as a result of that it is divided in two types, android and gynoid.
According to Positive Med:
Android Fat Distribution, “An ‘android’ fat distribution pattern is so called because more men than women exhibit it. You may have heard it described as an ‘apple’ body type when the waist circumference is greater than that of the hips.”
Gynoid Fat Distribution, “A ‘gynoid’ distribution is most commonly seen in women. This is what many call the ‘pear’ body shape. In this pattern, hip circumference is greater than waist circumference.”
In order for the weight loss to be successful you need to determine the right cause of its development. There is a reason why fat accumulates in certain body areas. Here are the explanations:
Android – Upper Body Obesity
People with this type of obesity eat a lot, but do not exercise at all. In order to lose weight these persons should limit the intake of sweets, and exercise at least 30 minutes on daily basis.
Android –Stomach Centered Obesity
This weight gain is a result of anxiety, depression, and stress. For that reason, implement in your daily routine some relaxation techniques and exercise.
Android – Swollen Stomach Obesity
The swollen stomach is due to higher intake of alcohol and/or breathing problems. This weight can get reduced if you limit the alcohol intake and introduce some breathing exercises which are in fact a full-body workout.
Android – Large, Protruding Stomach with Upper Back Fat
The main culprit for this type of weight is lack of physical activity. Therefore, you must exercise and thus regulate your blood sugar levels. Plus, make certain to lower the sizes of your meals.
Gynoid – Lower Body Obesity
When gynoid is concerned mostly women are being affected of this type of weight gain. For the ladies with lower body obesity it is recommended lower-body resistance training, combined with cardio exercises.
Gynoid – Lower Body Obesity that Includes Lower Legs
Swollen legs are common issue in pregnant women; therefore they should try water aerobics in order to lower the pressure on the leg and feet joints. Likewise, they should elevate their feet while sitting during the day for a certain period of time.
If you have tried everything and still you are not successful in losing weight, then it is most likely that it is due to genetics or hormonal imbalances. In such cases, you should seek for an advice from a health care professional to solve the issue.
