Overall Weight Gain

Overall weight gain refers to a fairly even distribution of weight gain and accumulation of fat cells on the entire body, mainly on areas such as the arms, tummy, waist, thighs, buttocks and face. Fat cells are enlarged and aplenty; and tend to deposit themselves all over the body, predominantly in the lower part of the body. People who are overweight will have an astounding amount of 1500 to 3000 million fat cells deposited all over their bodies, whereas normal people only have 250 to 300 million.

Causes
  • Hereditary - Usually around the ages of 12 to 18, women will start to show early signs of weight problems, with genetics being one of the main causes. Most overweight women actually start developing weight problems as a kid.
  • Overeating (of fatty, oily and sweet foods), bad digestion and lack of exercise, can also cause apparent weight gain. In more serious cases, one may even put on 10kg or more every year.
  • When ladies enter the workforce, long hours of sitting at work, late dinners as well as the lack of exercise will cause one's metabolic rate to slow down significantly, thus resulting in weight gain.
Consequences
  • Overall weight gain is highly disruptive to one’s lifestyle. Low self-esteem, frustration over not being able to find clothes that fit or being socially ostracized are some of the common problems that overweight ladies face.
  • Besides, increased risk of diabetes, heart diseases, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, are some other concerns that overweight ladies have to deal with.
Treatment
  • Resolving overall weight gain can be quite a challenging and arduous task. However, ladies in their 20s are said to be in their prime period for losing weight. Undergoing slimming treatment at this time will bring about fast and effective weight loss.
  • Ladies in their 30s might have accumulated stubborn fats in their body for years, and not seeking appropriate treatments can affect their chances of giving birth or may even cause depression to set in.
  • By the time one reaches 40s or 50s, stubborn fat would have deposited themselves in all areas of the body. This can be the start of permanent weight problems. If one does not seek treatment promptly, condition will worsen and health risks will become very high.
  • When one reaches the middle-aged phase, it will be extremely hard to regain a slim, svelte figure. In other words, seek treatment as soon as the problems appear. Don't wait till it's too late.
