So what causes obesity? Although there are many reasons for overweight physique, the main reason is that as adults grow older, the body's lean body composition (tissues other than fat, including muscles, bones, body fluids, etc.) gradually decreases, which in turn leads to basal metabolism. levels are getting lower and lower. A person's basal metabolism begins to decline around the age of 25. Therefore, the World Health Organization recommends that people reduce their caloric intake by about 5% when they are 40 years old, and reduce their caloric intake by about 5% when they are 50 years old. By the age of 60, people's basal metabolism has dropped significantly, so calorie intake should be reduced by another 10%. That is to say, after the age of 60, the calorie intake should be reduced by more than 20% compared with the age of 40. Otherwise, the middle-aged and elderly people will consume too much calories but cannot consume them, so they will definitely gain weight.
How to Calculate Obesity Rick Rate Correctly
Obesity is mainly divided into two categories, one is simple obesity, the other is secondary obesity. Secondary obesity mainly occurs on the basis of neuro-endocrine-metabolic disorders, and the proportion of obesity in obesity is very small, only about 5%. Most of the obesity seen in life is simple obesity, which has no obvious endocrine and metabolic diseases.
Simple obesity is mainly caused by genetic factors and acquired overnutrition, accounting for about 95% of the total number of obese people. In terms of Asian populations, in 2003, China's "Obesity Working Group" determined the cut-off value (BMI) of adult obesity in China. Normal, between 24-27.9 is overweight, >28 is obese. The BMI calculation method currently recognized by the World Health Organization is: BMI (kg/m2) = weight (kg) ÷ [height (m) × height (m)]. In addition, Asian people of ordinary body size can also be diagnosed with obesity based on waist circumference. Men with a waist circumference of ≥ 85 cm are overweight and ≥ 95 cm as obese; women with a waist circumference of ≥ 80 cm are overweight and ≥ 90 cm as obese. Waist circumference reflects the content of visceral fat, so measuring waist circumference is also a good way to measure obesity, which can be combined with body mass index to judge.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Weight Loss Effects
The theory of traditional Chinese medicine believes that the occurrence of obesity is also closely related to the dysfunction of the spleen, stomach and kidney in the human body. Acupuncture therapy is used to stimulate the corresponding acupoints, dredge the qi and blood blocked in the meridians, and adjust the spleen. , Stomach, kidney function, make them coordinate with each other, cooperate with traditional Chinese medicine to regulate endocrine, drain water and detoxify, so as to achieve better weight loss goals. Since the 1970s, Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion have carried out research on the weight loss treatment and conditioning of obesity. The first application is auricular acupuncture treatment, and later it has gradually developed into acupuncture and scraping and other methods of treatment. Acupuncture and moxibustion in traditional Chinese medicine for weight loss plays a two-way regulating role. By stimulating acupoints, it has the functions of "replenishing" and "relieving" at the same time. It not only treats diseases, but also improves the body's own immune function and adjusts the human body's skills. to a benign state of activity.
The key to weight loss by acupuncture and scraping lies in the selection of acupoints and the order of the meridians of scraping. The most effective treatment is to formulate a treatment plan according to different constitutions, individualized acupoint selection and physical conditioning with traditional Chinese medicine. Obese patients regain self-confidence and health.
In the process of treatment, the weight loss rate may be faster between the first and second courses, and during the 3-4 courses, the weight will enter a stable platform, and after the 4-5 courses, the weight will decrease. Entering a slow weight loss period, at this time, weight, waist circumference, etc. will slowly decrease again. After a period of relaxation, the skin will slowly shrink back, so scraping and acupuncture to lose weight is a cumulative process. Because the fundamental treatment and the relatively long natural course of treatment may make the patient lose confidence, which is indeed a common reason for giving up treatment, but this is precisely the critical period for the patient's body to rebuild a new collective metabolic balance. Treatment is very important. General excessive dieting to lose weight, the faster the weight loss, the greater the damage to health. However, scraping for weight loss is different, because the weight loss process of traditional Chinese medicine does not require patients to actively diet, but regulates metabolic balance by stimulating acupoints, etc., which fundamentally regulates appetite, so that the excess turbidity in the body of obese people dissipates, weight loss, and the patient's hunger not only can Get effective control without general discomfort. TCM weight loss can achieve "no diarrhea, no anorexia, no fatigue", so it is a scientific and healthy weight loss method.
Besides traditional Chinese medicine, what else could I do?
While acupuncture, scraping, and traditional Chinese medicine conditioning treatment, patients should cooperate with guidance and change their unreasonable eating habits in the past. Limit the intake of carbohydrates. The cereals, noodles and other foods we usually eat mainly contain carbohydrates. If we eat too much, the remaining calories will be converted into fat and stored, so we must limit the intake of such foods. . Limit the intake of fat, mainly to limit food with high fat content such as cooking oil and fatty meat. In the weight loss diet, the daily fat intake should be limited to about 40 grams. The restriction we are talking about here refers to controlling the intake of food within a certain range. In order to lose weight, many people adopt excessive dieting methods. It seems that they can only lose weight if they eat less and are hungry. However, Chinese medicine believes that losing weight should be bid farewell to Excessive dieting, and the key is to reduce fat intake and increase energy consumption is the most scientific.
