6 Types of Obesity: How to Overcome Any of Them
Have you ever thought about why you can’t lose weight even when you do physical exercises and adhere to a strict diet?
Perhaps you are not succeeding because you are making the wrong efforts that are needed in this particular case. The answers lie in the type of obesity you are dealing with. The choice of an effective weight loss strategy depends on where exactly fat accumulates on your body.
Here are 6 types of obesity, and tips on how to deal with each of them.
Overeating is the main cause of overweight problems in the world. If your fat accumulates evenly in all upper parts of the body, then you eat too much sugar and generally overeat. It may seem to you that this is not the reason: colleagues, or family members eat even more, but they do not gain weight so quickly. What can I say? Most likely, you underestimate the amount you eat and overestimate the amount eaten by others.
In general, if you have this problem, then three simple rules will help you. First, drink 500 ml of clean water half an hour before a meal. This will help to eat less at lunch or dinner.
Secondly, start drinking tea and coffee without sugar (get used to it soon, and you will even start to like it), and for some time you will have to give up sweets completely.
Thirdly, be sure to devote at least 30 minutes a day (every day!) To moderate physical activity. Charging is your everything!
If your fat accumulates exclusively in the abdomen, then its cause is either in depression, or in stress, or in the constant feeling of anxiety with which you have to live.
People suffering from a "nervous stomach" eat a lot of sweets to seize up stress. If you find a way to get a little nervous, then drastically reduce your consumption of sweets. This will get rid of excess fat.
People who have extra pounds accumulate in the hips are victims of hormonal imbalance or menopause. To combat this kind of obesity, you need to avoid smoking and alcohol, try to sit less and move more.
You need to "restart" your metabolism. Otherwise, you will sigh all your life, standing on the scales.
Atherogenic metabolic imbalance.
People with this type of obesity tend to accumulate fat in the abdominal cavity, and therefore have breathing problems.
The first thing you should do is stop drinking alcohol. Well, then - according to the traditional list: morning exercises, once or twice a week - to the gym, and a new diet. It implies: more food of plant origin and less - animal.
Obesity of the venous channels.
It is believed that we will inherit this type of obesity genetically. Fat concentrated in the legs is not the result of an improper lifestyle. It's getting worse.
Women with this type of obesity are constantly struggling with swollen legs. This problem is especially acute during pregnancy. People suffering from full legs need to run and climb stairs more often. Give regular exercise to your legs!
This type of obesity is characteristic of people who were previously very active physically. For example, engaged in sports or hard physical labor. And now they are inactive, sitting in offices or cars, and because of this they have a huge belly.
To get rid of this problem, you need to avoid long periods of hunger. You need to eat more than once or twice a day. Really. This will save you from chronic overeating in the evenings.
You are unlikely to start running anyway, so you have to seriously restructure the approach to the diet. There are more, but less. More vegetables - less pasta, more fruits - fewer donuts.
