6 Types Of Body Fat And How To Get Rid Of It
The findings and conclusions from this study are essential to understanding the underlying causes of obesity because understanding what caused it in the first place can shed light on how we can defeat it. This is a major breakthrough in obesity treatment, but there still a lot of research needed to further confirm these findings.
You may think that the pictures above, have nothing to do with this study but the truth is that understanding where one holds weight is crucial to losing it as well.
There are two types of body fat distribution: Android and Gynoid
PositiveMed defines these terms as:
“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.”
“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.”
And here are the 6 major types of body fat and the best way to get rid of it:
- Upper Body Obesity (Android)
This is linked to a high food intake and low exercise level. You should cut back on the sweets, and start exercising for at least 30 minutes a day. If you still can’t lose the weight you should consult a professional.
- Stomach-Centered Obesity (Android)
If you have extra weight in this area it’s linked to stress, depression and anxiety. The best way to resolve this problem is by trying some pairing exercise and relaxation techniques
