There is always a market for slimming treatments in Hong Kong, and central obesity is a worry for many Hong Kong people. What is the definition and cause of central obesity? Why probiotics can helpcentral obese people lose weight?
Definition and detection of central obesity.
The definition of central obesity is quite simple, it refers to the accumulation of excess fat in the abdomen. The two commonly used indexes to measure obesity are slightly insufficient for defining central obesity:Body Mass Index (BMI) cannot accurately represent the proportion of muscle and fat in the body, only the proportion of body fat is indicated, also the location of fat accumulation cannot be clearly expressed.
Central obesity should be judged together with body shape detection. In addition to the visual body size ratio, we also need to refer to our waist circumference. According to the guidelines of the Hong Kong Department of Health, a waist circumference of 90 cm or more for men and 80 cm or more for women can be defined as central obesity, and you should start paying attention.
Detailed explanation of the causes of central obesity.
We can revisitthe cause of central obesity, which is fat accumulation. Here we must first distinguish between subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat refers to the fat accumulated in the arms, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, etc., which is characterized by being easily pinched out by hand; while visceral fat accumulates around the internal organs. It is near the abdominal cavity and stomach. If it accumulates around the liver, it will become the “fatty liver” we often hear. If it is around the heart, it will easily lead to cardiovascular-related diseases. Therefore, central obesity not only affects posture, appearance, and personal self-confidence, but also directly affects physical health and the probability of disease. It is a problem that must be taken seriously.
You may have noticed from the above description that subcutaneous fat and visceral fat can also accumulate in the abdomen, but the cause of central obesity is mostly visceral fat. How to classify your fat type? You can try pinching your belly with your hands. If you can easily pull the belly fat, it tends to be subcutaneous fat. If you can’t, it is more likely to be visceral fat.
It is difficult to control which part of the body fat accumulates, it depends on each person’s physique. However, we can start from the cause to improve central obesity, actively reduce the accumulation of fat in various ways, and achieve the effect of reducing fat and losing weight.

However, for central obese people who are eager to lose weight, even if they carefully follow a diet with less oil, salt, and sugar, they often fail to lose weight.
