Weight Management

Overweight & obesity are the terms formally used to describe individuals with increased fat. This is also defined in terms of BMI (Body Mass Index) measured as Kg /Sq.m.

BMI ranges in adults:

  • Accepted range: 18.5 - 24.9
  • Overweight: 25.0 - 29.9
  • Obese: 30.0 - 39.9
  • Morbidly Obese: greater than 40.0

The basic energy requirement in most cases is approx 2000 cal / day for women and 2500 cal/ day for men. Additional calories may be essential depending on the physical activity of the person or in conditions like pregnancy and lactation.

Causes

  • Imbalance between the energy intake and its expenditure.
  • Sedentary life style with minimum physical activity.
  • Excessive alcohol intake.
  • Certain conditions like hypothyroidism etc.
  • Hereditary factor.

Women typically tend to collect more fat in their waist and buttocks. Men on the other hand store fat around their bellies.

Risk Factors :

Obesity is more a health hazard than a mere cosmetic problem. Obesity leads to several serious problems like high B.P., Diabetes, Heart diseases, etc. It is also associated with different types of cancers in both men and women.

Other disorders of joints like Osteoarthiritis & Gout , Respiratory disorders and symptoms like Dyspnoea are all commonly associated with obesity.

Obesity also causes a lot of emotional trauma to the effected person. Obese people face a lot of discrimination in the society. This may result in feelings of Depression and shame finally leading to severe psychological and behavioral disturbances.

Treatments

The method of treatment depends on the severity of the problem. Individualization is essential in every case. Treatment should include a rightful combination of balanced diet, physical work and behavior modification. Enrollment into a club or clinic with a similar programme is not a bad idea in cases where a want of motivation is felt.

Weight Management at Angels:

Angels offers advanced treatment called "CELLULITE THERAPY" for weight reduction. The treatment aims at

  • Increasing oxidation

All this is achieved by increasing BMR (basal metabolic rate). An added bonus of this unique treatment is that the heat produced during the process relieves stiff and aching limbs, muscles and joints. Another important aspect of this treatment is the use of a "BODY FORMER" which aims at toning and tightening of the skin that loosens and sags after the weight loss.

The above programme is well complemented by a tailor-made diet and appropriate life style modifications wherever necessary to produce fairly encouraging results in almost all the clients. This complete procedure is preceded by a thorough analysis of the body composition and a detailed examination. Appropriate medical advice is also made available along with this programme as and when the need arises.

  • Regularity in food habits and lifestyle are encouraged.
