Let’s discuss here few types of tummy related to obesity
1.ADRENAL BODY TYPE – LINKED WITH STRESS
The first body type is the ADRENAL and the adrenal belly, which is caused by increased levels of cortisol. When going through stressful periods, the production of cortisol increases, and this, in turn, increases the accumulation of fat around the waist, leading to a saggy abdomen. Both men and women are likely to gain stress belly fat if they’re constantly exposed to high levels of stress, and besides the excess belly weight gain, they’re also likely to experience fatigue, back pain, nervousness, poor memory and sleep problems.
HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE THE ADRENAL BELLY TYPE
If your belly looks as if it drops toward the legs and you have a lot of stress going on in your life, plus you tend to worry excessively, experience frequent episodes of brain fog or crave salty foods, it might be a sign that your adrenals are tired and you need to give yourself a break! The solution for this group of people is NOT to go on a restrictive diet or to double the time spent at the gym.
The most important thing for those with a stress belly is to manage their stress levels, and ensure they get enough rest and sleep. In regards to nutrition, people concerned with stress belly fat should ensure they’re getting enough protein in their diet, as well as consuming plenty of vegetables which will give them the potassium they need to help deal with stress.
2.THYROID BODY TYPE – CAUSED BY EXCESS OESTROGENS
Increased production of the oestrogen hormone can increase belly weight gain, causing the so-called THYROID belly or hormonal belly of the thyroid body type. People who have this type of belly shape tend to gain weight in the upper and lower body simultaneously (not in one targeted area like the adrenal belly), with the fat distributed throughout the entire body. Those with a thyroid condition can often have higher levels of oestrogen caused by heavy periods or digestive liver issues and also suffer from a lower metabolism, caused by the result of a lazy thyroid gland.
HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE THE THYROID BELLY TYPE
Those with a thyroid or hormonal belly may suffer from frequent headaches, poor circulation, hair loss and brittle fingernails. They can tend to crave sweets and usually prefer sugary, starchy carbs like bread, but carbs like this should be consumed in moderation—preferably only during and after exercise to provide a quick energy burst as having too many carbs won’t help them lose belly fat.
Instead, these people should focus on restoring the normal production of hormones and lowering their oestrogen levels with the help of a healthcare professional. With regards to nutrition, ensuring they get enough protein in each meal and even including fish oils into their diet will be beneficial. Determining what causes lower belly fat in the thyroid type is important as this will have an effect on what’s best in their diet to help reduce it.
OVARY BODY TYPE – SPECIFIC FOR WOMEN
The OVARY body type or ovary belly is a female-only problem and is where weight is gained in the thigh and lower belly areas. The ovary belly type is also caused by an excess of the oestrogen hormone, and it’s often more present during hormonal changes that take place during menstruation and after giving birth.
HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE THE OVARY BELLY TYPE
Those with the ovary belly type may experience heavier periods during their menstrual cycle, headaches, acne outbreaks and ovarian cysts. Hip and knee pain, depression and increased water retention, libido problems and night sweats can also occur. The solution in this type also refers to balancing the hormone levels, but in some cases, medical treatment might be required—if ovarian cysts are present, for example. A diet that’s rich in protein and healthy fats from plant-based sources, rather than those from dairy or animal sources, is more likely to help get rid of this type of belly.
LIVER BODY TYPE – CAUSED BY LIVER AND BILE PROBLEMS
If your midsection looks like a pot and your arms and legs are rather thin, you’re likely to have a LIVER body type or liver belly. This type of belly sticks out more than the adrenal body type and is made of fat tissue that accumulates due to a decreased production or impaired release of bile, associated with low blood sugar levels in the morning.
Men are more likely to develop this type of belly and can tend to have issues like bloating, flatulence or other digestive problems, as well as some back pain and soreness. Shoulder pain can also accompany these types of belly shapes, and in the morning, irritability and an increased hunger sensation may be present. All of these are the results of a tired liver that no longer works as it should, and the solution is a detox.
HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE THE LIVER BELLY TYPE
In healthy people, the levels of blood sugar are higher in the morning, but in those with a liver belly, the glycaemia values are lower. What this means is that the hunger sensation persists after eating because food isn’t properly processed and bile isn’t released in sufficient amounts.
People with the liver belly type should avoid consuming high amounts of alcohol and sugary sodas if they want to reduce belly fat, and they should limit the amount of heavy protein in their diets and remove complex carbs from junk foods. Instead, they should look at increasing their vegetable intake as this will help with liver function and ensure they consume healthy fats from nuts, avocados and olive oil. Increasing their exercise like the other body types, and limiting starchy, sugary carbs to during and post-exercise is best for the liver belly type. Once the liver function is restored, the lower belly fat will go away also.
