Why Fat Stays after Diet and Exercise

A recent Canadian census recorded a population of nearly 36 million in our country. The Canadian Obesity Network estimates that 1 out of 4 of those Canadian adults struggle with obesity. That means nine million Canadians fight with weight problems every day. Obesity is directly linked to serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some forms of cancer.

It’s important to take care of yourself with diet and exercise. However, if you know you’re fit and still have “problem areas” with fatty deposits or cellulite, professional clinicians can help reduce those spots, especially before an important event like a wedding or class reunion. In your case, there’s no need for extreme measures like liposuction or putting a band on your stomach. Small, cosmetic concerns can be treated without surgery.

Factors that Affect Fat Density:

  • Sleep (or lack of it)
  • Age
  • Disease/Medication
  • Genetics

Sleep – Sleep can be difficult if you have a newborn baby, new work hours, or are simply stressed out. Sleep is vital for health for many reasons, and can have an impact on your weight. Seven to one hours of sleep per night is recommended; studies have shown that people who average five hours are 73% more likely to be overweight.

Age – As we age our muscle tone weakens and fat may accumulate, even with regular exercise. Hormonal changes like menopause might increase fat in the abdomen.

Disease/Medication – Diseases like Cushing’s and polycystic ovary syndrome can cause weight gain. Medications like birth control, steroids, and antidepressants can make a huge impact on the body as well.

Genetics – Some people have genes that allow them to burn calories more quickly than others. For those of us who are not so “naturally blessed,” we have to make more effort with diet and exercise to reduce fat.
