Subcutaneous fat is the vast majority of fat found on your body. It's the fat that lies right under the skin and creates the pinchable inch -or more that creates a muffin-top appearance. Because it's more metabolically active, visceral fat tends to respond faster than subcutaneous fat to efforts to lose it. Subcutaneous fat is notoriously stubborn, so you may notice the circumference of your belly reduce relatively expediently, but your muffin top or pinchable fat on your abs hangs on for longer. Liposuction can be a solution for these stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction can be an option when all kinds of diet and exercise have failed, and the fat bulges not reduced. Consult us now to know if you are a candidate for this procedure.
There are 40 billion fat cells in an average human adult. When a person eats more than they can burn off, these fat cells multiply and can increase up to a 100 billion cells. The more we sit down, the more fat cells in the buttocks expand creating a rounder bottom. Scientists at Tel Aviv University revealed that 'cellular expansion' plays a key role in fat production because the pressure on cells causes them to increase in size by 50 per cent. Professor Amit Gefen, from the Department of Biomedical Engineering said 'We found that fat cells exposed to sustained, chronic pressure such as what happens to the buttocks when you're sitting down experienced accelerated growth of lipid droplets, which are molecules that carry fats." He also said "Obesity is more than just an imbalance of calories. Cells themselves are also responsive to their mechanical environment. Fat cells produce more triglycerides, and at a faster rate, when exposed to static stretching." Sedentary position can leave you with a BIG Bottom. Move around, take breaks, stretch your legs, be on your feet.
Don’t sit still, activate your Lipase and lose weight Lipase is a fat burning enzyme produced in your body. When inactive, the body stops producing this enzyme. Marc Hamilton, an associate professor of biomedical sciences said “The enzymes in blood vessels of muscles responsible for ‘fat burning’ are shut off within hours of not standing. Standing and moving lightly will re-engage the enzymes” A scientific discovery published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society could really help people struggling with obesity and serious related health problems like heart problems and diabetes. It also says” Stand and stretch every hour, and you’ll boost your metabolism by about 13%” Researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that constant fidgeters burn hundreds more calories a day than those who stay still. So, keep fidgeting and increase your metabolism.
Leptin , Obesity & Weight loss Leptin is a hormone secreted by the adipose tissue (fat cells). It controls hunger and feelings of satiety. Leptin acts on the hypothalamus of the brain. The amount of leptin released is directly related to the amount of body fat. In a normal person, the more fat a person has, the more leptin they will have circulating in their blood. This in turn acts on the receptors of the hypothalamus and you know when it’s time to stop eating. It then increases the metabolic rate in order to achieve energy balance. In Obese people, even though there is a lot of leptin hormone in the blood, it fails to act upon the brain. This is called Leptin Resistance. In this state, the brain does not read a signal to stop eating. So it leads to over eating, cravings. The cause of Leptin Resistance is unknown.
Paneer & Tofu are both food options for vegetarians as part of their recipes. Paneer is derived from animal milk (cow, goat) while tofu is plant based (soya milk). Both are similar looking with a slight variation in taste. For people looking to lose weight, tofu is an excellent replacement compared to paneer. Paneer contains 265 calories per 100 gms as compared to tofu which has 62 calories per 100 gms. Also one must note the fat content in both paneer & tofu. While paneer has 20.8 g of fat, tofu has 2.7 g of fat per 100 gms. People who have undergone Bariatric Surgery or Metabolic surgery must consult your surgeon before including these in your diet plan.
Falling asleep in random places due to Sleep apnea caused by Obesity can be a dangerous symptom. Obesity is considered a major risk factor for the development and progression of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The prevalence of OSA in obese or severely obese patients is nearly twice that of normal-weight adults. Furthermore, patients with mild OSA who gain 10% of their baseline weight are at a sixfold-increased risk of progression of OSA, and an equivalent weight loss can result in a more than 20% improvement in OSA severity. An article in the National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health, it is mentioned that "it is possible that obesity may worsen OSA because of fat deposition at specific sites. Fat deposition in the tissues surrounding the upper airway appears to result in a smaller lumen and increased collapsibility of the upper airway, predisposing to apnea." BARIATRIC SURGERY can be a advantageous solution for Sleep Apnea as well as the root cause for it- OBESITY. Choosing BARIATRIC SURGERY can relieve you of this dangerous problem.
Scientists at Maastricht University in the Netherlands have found that being mildly cold can increase the rate of energy burnt by between 3 and 30 per cent. Their study recommends avoiding always being in perfectly temperate environments, and also warns: “By lack of exposure to a varied ambient temperature, whole populations may be prone to develop diseases like Obesity. US research shows that increasing your Brown Fat not only helps you Lose Weight, it decreases the risk of TYPE 2 DIABETES
