Fat & Weight Loss

What is Obesity?

Obesity is excess deposition of body fat to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health.

How do I know if I am obese?

  • Obesity can be measured using BMI.
  • BMI is calculated by dividing body weight (kilograms) by height (metres) squared.
  • BMI= WEIGHT(KG) / HEIGHT(m)2
  • World Health Organisation BMI classification system for adults
    BMI range (kg/m2) Classification
    < 18.5 Underweight
    18.5 – 24.9 Healthy weight
    25 -29.9 Overweight
    30 – 39.9 Obese
    > 40 Morbidly obese

What are types of fat?

Subcutaneous Fat

  • Subcutaneous fat is found directly under the skin. It’s the fat that’s measured using skin-fold calipers to estimate your total body fat.
  • This fat aids in the process of homeostasis, by forming a layer of insulation to slow heat loss.

Visceral Fat (Intra-abdominal fat)

  • Visceral fat gets deposited around the inner organs like belly fat (stomach, liver, intestines, kidneys, etc.) and spells trouble for your health.
  • It interferes with sugar metabolism & also increases blood cholesterol level.
  • Visceral fat increases your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even dementia.

WHAT IS HEALTHY (scientific) WEIGHT LOSS?

Healthy weight loss consists of-

  • Reducing surface fat
  • Reducing visceral fat
  • Improving your muscle mass & metabolic rate

Recommended rate of scientific weight loss by WHO is 2-3 kgs/month.

 

Solution

Get one step closer to the figure you’ve always dreamed of with non-surgical body contouring treatments. They use advanced technology to safely and comfortably deliver energy below the skin’s surface, where it works to shrink fat cells. The result is a slimmer figure with a more defined shape. Today’s treatments can target both smaller, hard-to-hit areas like the arms and jawline, and larger, more common problem areas like the abdomen and thighs.

We use Venus Freeze to target your problem.
