Excess fat

At IHYA Clinic in Birmingham, we understand that excess fat can be frustrating and sometimes difficult to get rid of, no matter how well we eat or how regularly we exercise.

This is why we offer a range of treatments, to melt away pockets of excess, subcutaneous fat and sculpt a more slender physique.

Factors causing excess fat

There are several factors that can increase your chances of experiencing excess fat:

  • Not drinking enough water to flush toxins from the body
  • Eating the wrong types of foods (over-processed/ convenience foods)
  • Eating large portions when not needed
  • Drinking excess alcohol
  • Leading a sedentary lifestyle
  • Emotional eating / overeating
  • Underactive thyroid syndrome
  • Genetics
  • Insulin resistance
  • Certain medications
  • Hidden sugars within packaged foods
  • Poor eating habits

Causes of excess fat

As we get older, our metabolism slows down and it can be harder to keep weight off, especially from those stubborn areas such as the hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, flanks and upper arms. Stubborn fat consists of brown fat cells, which are particularly tricky to budge. If you are considered clinically obese however, it may not be just subcutaneous fat which is causing the issue. Visceral fat which is the deeper fat, surrounds the organs, and cannot be removed by the treatments we provide. Therefore we recommend that you seek assistance from your GP or a nutritionist, so you can undertake a healthy eating and exercise regime.

Treatments for excess fat

Whilst some people are lucky and find it easy to lose weight and keep excess fat at bay, many can get frustrated with those areas that won’t budge, no matter how healthy a lifestyle they lead.

This is where our treatments, whether administered as a single protocol or several combined, can make all the difference in helping you to reach your body goals faster than diet and exercise alone.
