A Public Health England survey revealed that 61.7% of adults were overweight or obese (65.3% of men and 58.1% of women) in the UK in 2014 and these figures have only increased in the two years following the study. While more and more adults have become heavier and health advice has been issued encouraging us to eat less and move more, with countless ‘wonder’ diets advertised in the hope that we can avoid suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes and other conditions associated with having a large waistline, many people are embarrassed or ashamed of their body shape.
If your figure gives you grief, don’t worry you’re not alone in your quest to look for ways and answers to the question: how to get rid of belly fat and flab in other areas of the body? Working in conjunction with healthy amounts of exercise, a positive and wholesome lifestyle and alongside nutritious eating habits, we offer many belly fat and body flab reducing treatments. For example, our non-invasive Laser Liposuction procedure shrinks fat cells to diminish the inches.
Alternatively, our hypnoslimmer treatment takes a different approach. Here, as licensed hypnoslimmer consultants, we work with you to reeducate your body to eat when hungry and stop when you are full. The programme includes a CD to use at home and workbook to help you lose belly fat and tone up your frame.
Whatever solution you choose to help you lose belly fat and plumpness in other body areas, our treatments will leave you feeling comfortable and confident again, just as your body deserves to be!
You’ve probably heard a lot about ‘calories’. These are units of measurement to quantify the energy in food. People need a certain number of calories to burn up in the body each day to keep going. Consuming more calories than what the body needs to use as fuel and energy means extra calories get stored as fat reserves to protect the body against the bleak possibility that calories (or food) might be hard to come by in the future. These stored fat calories get used when there is no food available, rendering the body to look for alternative sources of energy.
When people make a regular habit of eating more food and calories than their body needs, they gain weight. These extra calories are stored as an evolutionary response from times when food was less available (the days before Tesco!) and people had to work hard, carrying out intense manual labour obtain food. Nowadays, we have lots of food readily available so these excess calories don’t get burnt off and we are left with obesity and being overweight as a result.
People also gain weight naturally with age as our muscle mass shrinks, and our metabolism slows down. Stress and mental health issues can also lead to certain people ‘binge eating’ as a coping mechanism leading to weight gain. People who are menopausal or have just given birth may seek to lose belly fat and heaviness from other areas as weight gain is also possible during these stages of life.
