Ever wonder why you collect more body fat in one area of your figure than another? Science suggests that fat distribution patterns are linked to specific health habits. The more you know about why you’re gaining weight in certain regions, the easier it becomes to modify your eating and workout routines to optimize your weight loss results.
#1 Upper-body obesity:
This always means that you are eating the wrong foods and not exercising. Seeing a doctor is a great first step to formulating a fitness plan.
#2 Stomach-centred obesity:
This can be linked to the stress hormone cortisol being overly present in your system. Combining proper eating and exercise with stress and anxiety management techniques is the best route for this issue.
#3 Swollen-stomach obesity:
This is often caused by excessive alcohol consumption or difficulties breathing. Curb your drinking habits or check with your doctor if breathing is a concern.
#4 Protruding stomach with fat upper back:
This is often a sign of inactivity and poor eating habits. It can be a result of either not eating frequently enough or overeating at meals.
#5 Lower-body obesity:
It is critical with this form of obesity for you to focus on lower-body resistance training. Again, this fat collection is linked to lack of exercise.
#6 Lower-body obesity that includes lower legs:
This can occur due to pregnancy, and should be dealt with in the same way as #5.
