Body weight reduction
Our modern lifestyle leads to a great number of people that eat unhealthy foods and have little to no physical activity. As a result, obesity is increasingly common, especially in children. There are two distinct build types of obese people – apple-shaped (mostly men) and pear-shaped (mostly women).
Negative consequences of obesity are:
- Increased blood pressure
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Joint pain
- Back pain
- Loss of muscle tissue
- Inability to do sports
- Potential for body deformities
Because of the wide-ranging consequences of obesity, it is paramount to try to reduce body weight by correcting dietary habits and employing physical activity under expert medical supervision.
Programme for reducing bodyweight
A BMI (body mass index) is calculated, which determines the degree of obesity, percent of muscle tissue, fat tissue, visceral fats, etc. This is followed by anthropometric measurements (height, weight, extremities’ size).
After consulting with a nutritionist and physiotherapist, a goal is set, along with a detailed plan and programme for reducing body weight..
The body weight reduction programme is individual and depends on the type and extent of obesity, as well as the patient’s physical aptitude. Our programme of body weight reduction consists of creating a dietary plan as well as conducting training, depending on the patient’s physical aptitude and health.
