9 Interesting Facts about WellaFreeze Fat Freeze or Cryolipolysis
1. Fat Freeze is Cryolipolysis
Fat Freeze is technically known as Cryolipolysis, which means cooling down fat cells down to a temperature initiating the apoptosis process. In short, Fat Freeze kills and disposes the fat cells targeted. This is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses low temperatures to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. During the procedure, the practitioner vacuums the skin above the area of fatty tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperatures numb the area, and some people report feeling a cooling sensation.
2. Our Body Clears the Frozen Fat Cells Effectively
Our body is really good at making sure we don’t have cells we no longer need left around and breaks them down after they have been frozen during treatment. A 2015 review Trusted Source published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery analysed 19 previous studies of cryolipolysis.
Researchers found that when the studies had measured fat reduction with a caliper, which is a tool similar to a ruler, people lost an average of 14.67 to 28.5 percent of the fat in areas treated by cryolipolysis. When the studies measured the fat reduction with ultrasound, people lost 10.3 percent to 25.5 percent.
3. We Really Do Pee Away the Fat cells!
Peeing, pooping, sweating and breathing is all part of the natural process of ridding ourselves of waste. The fat cells that are killed by the treatment is disposed through the lymphatic system. There are no major health risk factors associated with the procedure. There was no reduction in liver function or lipid levels, meaning that WellaFreeze Fat Freezing is purely a cosmetic procedure.
4. The Treated Area May Feel Like a Chilled Chicken Thigh
Immediately after treatment, the areas will of course feel colder but it rarely freeze solid. The skin will be pink for a while, but this will last for between 30 to 60 minutes after. Most cryolipolysis procedures take around an hour. There is no recovery time because there is no damage to the skin or tissue. Some people report soreness at the site of fat freeze, similar to that they might have after an intense workout or minor muscle injury.
After the procedure, it may take around 4–6 months for the fat cells to leave the body. In that time, the area of fat will decrease by an average of 20 percent.
5. Results are not Instant and You will Need to Be Patient
How long does it take to see results from fat freezing? WellaFreeze results can be seen in as little as three weeks. As the body takes time to naturally dispose the dead fat cells, you will take between 30 days to 90 days to see the full extend of the treatment.
The best ways to improve the results is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to exercise regularly. If you combine these two things with the treatment, it can help to optimise the results achieved.
Because it takes some time for the dead fat cells to break down and then flush out of the system, you need to pay attention to what you are eating. If you fall back into your old habits, you aren’t going to achieve satisfying results.
Another way to improve results is with massage. Try to massage the treated area for five minutes after treatment. Doing this can help improve fat reduction by up to 68 percent after the initial two months.
Drinking more water may also help improve results of Coolsculpting. While there’s no documented proof, many doctors recommend this. That’s because when your body is properly hydrated, it flushes dead cells more efficiently.
6. WellaFreeze is Not Just for the Belly
While the belly or stomach is the most popular treatment area, other areas ideal for fat freezing includes many areas. The hips, inner thighs, lower back, upper arms or even chin can be treated.
The abdominal area is the most common area treated with Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing). Stubborn fat can accumulate in both men and women of all ages, even with regular exercise and diet the stubborn fat may stay in this area and this can be very disheartening. For men, its the beer belly, surgery, medication; for woman, its after pregnancy, medication, hormone change and more. It can be very difficult to get rid of this stubborn body fat in your stomach area by yourself, but thankfully it is one of the best body areas for Cryolipolysis treatment. It helps clients achieve flatter stomachs, flatter abs that they can really sculpt through further exercise, and boost body confidence in all genders and ages.
7. wellaFreeze can Also Treat Man Boops or Gynecomastia
Man boobs – medically, gynaecomastia – is often the result of a hormone imbalance, when a man’s ratio of oestrogen to testosterone shifts too far to the female side. It’s a problem that affects around half of all men, according to the Cleveland Clinical Journal of Medicine.
WellaFreeze can also be used effectively to treat male chest reduction or gynaecomastia, the swelling of beast tissue in males.
8. Side Effects are Very Minimal or Non-existent
Side effects are very minimal and only include pinkness that lasts up to an hour after the treatment. There is also no down-time.
The most common side effect during treatment is a tugging sensation which is something most people endure with no pain. The side effects recorded afterwards are minimal, and most patients will experience a little bit of redness, bruising, minor swelling, sensitivity, numbness in the area that was treated.
9. You can do Two Body Parts Concurrently
At Wellaholic, our machines allow you two concurrent sessions at one go, thereby saving you time for treatments. This is useful if you are planning to treat both your left and right body part. For example, you might want to target your left and right love handles. Or you might want to target your left and right thighs. This helps you to save time over the course of repeated treatments.

WellaFreeze Fat Freeze Always Starts with the Measurement of Your Treatment Area
Wellaholic, we take our Wellafreeze fat freeze or cryolipolysis treatments very seriously. This is because the fat freeze treatments involves deep freezing, or apoptosis, which is the ideal exposure of sub-zero temperatures for non-invasive fat reduction.
The fat cells are eliminated through a gradual freezing process that does not harm surrounding tissues. The body's natural metabolic process will then remove the unwanted fat.
Now, because the thickness of the treatment area will impact the duration of treatment as well as the temperature, it is highly important that our therapists measure the treated layer via both a pinch test (with fingers) as well as with the calipers. The measurement is then recorded to gauge progress of the customer over time.
Even if the customer insists on adjust to a lower temperature or prolonging the treatment process, we do not allow it. This is because the safety of the customer must come first, and effectiveness and efficacy next. By over-treating the area, the chances of a freeze burn increases dramatically. A freeze burn is a very painful process , similar to a second-degree burn which can lead to permanent scarring. For the safety of all our customers, our therapists take extra caution to prevent any possibility of freeze burns.
Using the Skinfold Calipers to measure Fat
The Skinfold caliper is a device which measures the thickness of a fold of your skin with its underlying layer of fat. By doing this at the key locations can be a quite accurate representative of the total amount of fat that is on your body, it is also possible to estimate the total percent of bodyfat on your body.
If you're right handed, pull out the fold of skin with the underlying layer of fat with your left hand and hold it with the fingers of the left hand. Then with the calipers in your right hand, place the jaws of the calipers as shown in the diagrams below. The jaws of the calipers should be about 1/4" (7.5mm) from the fingers of your left hand which continues to hold the fold of skin. Release the trigger of the calipers so the entire force of the jaws is on the Skinfold. Do not release the fingers of the left hand while taking the readings.
It is important to keep holding firmly the fold of skin with the fingers so that the calipers are measuring just the thickness of the fold of skin. You will notice that when you place the calipers on the Skinfold that the calipers will "creep" a little, after a few seconds the “creep” will slow down and this is the time that the measurement should be taken. You must note the reading on the scale before releasing any pressure off the calipers.
We Limit the Number of Treatments in a day
Also, if a customer wants to do several WellaFreeze Fat Freeze treatments in a single day, we will always limit the number of session to three hours a day. Why is this the case? Now, when several body parts are treated, it results in a high percentage of frozen dead fat cells, which affects the overall body acidity. This phenomenon, is known as metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis is a condition that occurs when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body, and may lead to lightheadedness, muscle twitching, prolonged muscle spasms and other complications. Once again, the safety of our customers always comes first!
Remove 14% to 28% of Visible Fat via wellaFreeze Fat Freeze
With these possible complications, is there a silver lining? Fortunately, there is! WellaFreeze Fat Freeze uses the Coolsculping or Cryolipolysis procedure which has shown to be effective in removing between 14 to 28% of visceral fat 30 to 60 days after each treatment. This makes this treatment the safest non-invasive treatment to liposuction, which is more expensive and also carries higher risk.

REFUSE TO LET YOURSELF WALLOW IN SELF-DOUBT. YOU'RE ALIVE TO SUCCEED

Remember, effort make's the different. It's inescapable. Effort is more than "if you pay me more, I will work harder." It is not about cheating yourself out of your potential.
And if you put in effort to look your best, you can be the best version of yourself. When you look your best, the whole world stops and stares for a while.
Laser Hair Removal - Answers to Your Top 10 Questions
Curious about laser hair removal? If you have questions about laser hair removal and seek answers to them, let us help. Laser hair removal is becoming more common in Singapore, and at Wellaholic, we have treated more than a thousand customers with our SHR laser hair removal. Here are the top 10 questions regarding laser hair removal. Physician assistant Tonianne Grobmyer helps to provide more information on the most common ten questions asked about laser hair removal, whether its IPL hair removal, SHR hair removal or diode hair removal.
1. How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light which is then absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour. Depending on a person's pain tolerance, lasers can feel like a gentle pinch or the snap of a hot rubber band.
2. How Many Treatments for Laser Hair Removal to work?
The process only works during the hair’s growth cycle, so the procedure is often done multiple times. You may have great results after three treatments, or it sometimes takes as many as nine or more. From Wellaholic's experience, it will take several treatments, spaced four weeks (or 28 days) apart to achieve 78 to 80 percent of reduction in hair growth. For best results, always get maintenance treatments done on a yearly basis to keep the follicles in check.
Treatment needs can vary because the laser targets melanin, or dark pigment, in the hair follicles. The darker your skin is, the harder it is to distinguish between the skin colour and the pigment in the follicles. You can still get good results, but it may take more treatments. If you have light skin and dark hair, you will likely get good results after just a few treatments.
3. Does Laser Hair Removal Work for Everyone?
Laser hair removal is often touted as a method of "permanent" hair removal. That is not necessarily true and laser hair removal might not be able to give you a lifetime of complete hairlessness, either.
Generally, technicians and doctors who perform laser hair removal consider a hair loss of 70 percent to be a success. Many men and women who have gone through a full series of sessions report that it does work, for the most part. It is very common to hear stories of nearly hairless areas after treatment, with the occasional straggler that pops up and needs to be dealt with. Then again, there would be a small minority that would find laser hair removal to be less effective for them.
Laser treatments are not permanent because hair follicles that were not damaged can grow back over time. That is why you need to commit to multiple sessions in order to have any degree of success. This is not a one-and-done system.
4. Is Radiation Involved?
No radiation is involved. The word “laser” stands for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation,” but it’s not like an X-ray. The treatment simply uses light and heat.
5. How can One Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
The hair should be shaved a day before your appointment. Otherwise, the entire hair will absorb the energy and heat up, which can burn the skin, as that singed hair hits the skin. It also means less energy will reach the base of the follicle, so the results will be less than optimal.
It is also a good idea to stay out of the sun as much as possible before the procedure. Ultraviolet light stimulates melanocytes, which create more melanin in the skin. This makes it harder for the laser technician to distinguish between the skin and follicles, which also makes the treatment more challenging.
6. How Long Does a Laser Hair Removal Session Take?
The length of each laser hair removal session depends on the area being treated. For example, it takes 1 minute to treat the upper lip, 5 to 7 minutes to do both underarms and 25 to 30 minutes to do full legs. Generally, at Wellaholic, for our Unlimited Packages, we provide up to 2 hours per visit for the customer if he or she is doing a full body treatment.
7. Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Everyone’s pain threshold is different and can vary depending on things like where you are in your menstrual cycle or medications that can make the skin more sensitive. “Some clients describe the sensation as warm and tingling likened to the feeling one has after a day on the beach” explains Tonianne. “Others compare the feeling to a rubber band flicking the skin.”
8. Are There Areas Where Laser Hair Removal Doesn't Work?
The most popular places are the face, underarms, bikini line, back and chest (for men) and legs but laser removal can be applied anywhere that has hair. The only places that are off-limits are ones that can’t be seen such as inside the nostrils.
9. What can One Expect After the Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
The treatment is effective for most people and is very safe. The only problems you might experience post-treatment are a little swelling, redness or irritation around the hair follicles. This can last for a couple of days. Nevertheless, at Wellaholic, we see very little occurrence of any post-treatment symptoms or irritation. Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening) also sometimes occurs, but that typically fades pretty quickly. Burns or blisters may arise, but they are very uncommon.
10. Will the Hairs Grow Back Again?
It is entirely impossible to predict. No one can that how successfully the lasers will work on you. It varies man to man or person to person. And the results of a laser hair removal depend on some facts including the type of hair and follicle. It is clinically proved that the laser hair removal provides a long-lasting result. It works very fast over the course of treatment. Nevertheless, all the hair is not in the same growth cycle. Also, not all hair is at the same point in the growth cycle. For this reason, all the hair is not damaged at the time of the laser treatment. So some hair may continue to grow even after the laser hair removal treatment.

Why Microneedling for Men is Becoming the Latest Trend
Introduction to Microneedling
Microneedling facial is becoming increasingly popular for men in Singapore. In general, aesthetic treatments are certainly on the rise for men, as a means to improve skin quality and also to combat the signs of ageing. While some male customers are entirely new to aesthetic and cosmetic procedures, others may have tried chemical peels or microdermabrasion, but not ready for laser treatments.
Fortunately, Microneedling facial is an excellent non-surgical treatment that can help men achieve smoother, clearer skin and natural results. Microneedling is extremely effective to smooth acne scars and lighten pigmentation. Read on to find out more!
Fast Facts On Microneedling
Microneedling is an anti-ageing treatment which uses a mechanical device with thin, surgical-grade needles to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. The body then responds by generating new collagen and elastin to fill these wounds. To stimulate even greater collagen production, the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma may be applied over these tiny punctures. Additionally, topical serums are delivered via the precisely-made holes to boost the wound healing effect and cellular rejuvenation.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
Despite taking care of their skin with sun protection and a daily skincare regimen, many guys have unwanted photo-damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling is able to target all of these concerns in a 30-minute session. It can be performed on the face, chest, neck, and other parts of the body. In addition, the procedure can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and repair acne scars, stretch marks, and surgical scars without the thermal damage or recovery associated with lasers.
Microneedling Facial Singapore
Microneedling Facial Singapore for men can improve skin tone and texture, diminish wrinkles and fine lines, soften acne scars, and reduce discoloration with minimal downtime. Plus, microneedling offers men a safe and natural way to enhance their appearance because the treatment uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to produce results.
What is Microneedling?
Targeted Areas for Microneedling
Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:
How Quick Can One See Results?
When can one see results from Microneedling?
After their first session, most men notice that their skin is softer and brighter. Additional effects become apparent over the next several weeks and can continue to progress for up to six months. The number of treatments recommended varies from person to person and depends on skin quality and specific concerns and goals. However, a series of three-to-six treatments is typically advised.

Brazilian vs Bikini Laser Hair Removal - Which one is right for you?
It seems that, no matter how often we get a wax or when we last shaved, the area never quite has a smooth, flawless appearance. Whether razor burn, ingrown hairs, or stubble growing back from the morning’s shave cause the flaws, they tend to be most noticeable at the least convenient times. Everything appears decent enough in the mirror at home, but the sunlight on the beach always reveals the spots we missed or forgot altogether. It’s because of this that many women become interested in laser hair removal, and more often than not, they start with the pubic region.
This ultimately leads to the big question: Brazilian hair removal or bikini laser hair removal? To figure out which option is better for you, we’ve provided an overview of each option below.
What’s the Difference Between Brazilian and Bikini Laser Hair Removal?
Difference Between Brazilian and Bikini Hair Removal
Many women do not know the difference between a bikini line treatment and a Brazilian. The two are similar, so it understandingly causes a bit of confusion. Since the subject can be embarrassing to discuss, women tend to research it beforehand instead of asking their laser hair removal technician what the difference is.
The Bikini Line
The area that lies outside of the panty line is considered the bikini line. A bikini line laser hair removal treatment typically covers up to three inches beyond this line, ensuring a flawless look in panties or a bikini. It often also addresses some areas that underwear covers, such as the sides of the labia and top of the pubic region, but this is up to the client.
A Brazilian laser hair removal treatment includes more area than a bikini treatment because it includes the labia and perianal areas as well. This option leaves women completely bare, but often those who choose Brazilian treatments opt to keep some hair in the pubic region, such as a landing strip.
Either option can be customized to fit what you’re looking for.
How Much Maintenance Do You Want to Avoid?
Full Bikini Laser Hair Removal vs Brazilian
All women know the bikini zone is one of the most troubling hair removal areas because most hair removal methods seem to cause more problems than they solve. Laser hair removal on the bikini line will create a smooth, flawless appearance and prevent stubble from growing back and the irritation that other hair removal methods cause.
Those who choose this option will still need to maintain the area, however. It will require less maintenance than before but more than if you chose the Brazilian hair removal option, which will permanently eliminate all hair in the pubic region
What Is Your Objective?
Are you looking to simply reduce the amount of ingrown hairs on your bikini line and get rid of razor burn? Are you looking to shave less often and be sure you didn’t miss a spot while lying on the beach? Then laser hair removal treatments in the bikini area might be the best option for you.
Are you looking to never have to worry about shaving again and save hundreds of dollars a year on other hair removal methods? Are you looking to permanently eliminate ingrown hairs, razor burn, sweating, chafing, and other irritations? Are you looking to have flawless skin not only in a swimsuit but in the nude as well? Then Brazilian laser hair removal treatments might be right for you.
Full Brazilian versus Regular Brazilian?
While a Brazilian can be a variety of different hair removal styles that remove almost all pubic hair from the pubic region, a full Brazilian removes it all, leaving no hair whatsoever. Choose to leave a neat strip, triangle, or no hair whatsoever -- it's completely your choice! Here are a few popular styles below:
Why Brazilian Hair removal?
Wellaholic's SHR permanent hair removal takes the process to a whole new level. Once the hair has been removed it's as if there was never any hair to begin with. These laser hair removal procedures are our most popular because many women love the idea of not having to worry about bikini bumps and ingrown hairs, and just love that fresh clean feeling every single day of the year. Not having to waste time every morning or repeatedly paying for temporary solutions like waxing are key reasons why Brazilian laser hair removal has become very popular at Wellaholic.

Using latest SHR technology
SHR or Super Hair Removal is a relatively newer technology which uses gentler pulses of energy but at a higher frequency. This laser hair removal technology allows the skin to be heated gently, but with the rapid pulses, the energy is then accumulated by the skin. While 50% of the energy is targeted at the melanin (similar to IPL), the other 50% targets the stem cells responsible for hair production.
This is a very important point to note as SHR thereby targets both fine and coarse hairs. Ultimately, this leads to less discomfort and pain, yet an improved efficacy.
Because of the gradual accumulation of the energy into the skin, there is less trauma and irritation on the skin - making it ideal and suitable for everyone, regardless of skin tone and even for customers with sensitive skin. In fact, SHR is often considered to be one of the best laser hair removal treatments in Singapore given the various technologies.

How Many SHR Treatments are Necessary for Effective Hair Removal?
If the hair is in the anagen phase of growth during treatment, which refers to the active (hair) growth phase, it can be easily destroyed as in the case with IPL technology. The advantage of SHR hair removal in this case is that it can work with customers during both their anagen phase and non-anagen phase, as SHR can target the 50% of the stem cells. Nevertheless, a three-to-four week recovery or "down" time is required to meet this anagen phase as well as to give the skin a recovery time before the next treatment.

7 Great Tips on Teeth Whitening
Just like everyone else you want to have the brightest and whitest teeth ever possible. However, it is important to have a dental examination to ensure that your mouth is healthy. That the problem such as cavities and gum disease need to be addressed and treated before you do your teeth whitening. Why is this the case? “Teeth whitening that is peroxide-based is meant to whiten the innermost layer, not the structure inside the tooth near the nerves,” based on Jennifer Jablow, a cosmetic dentist in New York City. In this article on teeth whitening, we are going to share with you the Top 7 things that dentists wish you would know before you start your teeth whitening treatment.
Tip #1: Get an Examination First by a Dentist
Having a dental checkup before your teeth whitening treatment is highly recommended. This is because you might be having dental problems such as cavities and gum diseases. If the enamel is not intact due to teeth or gum diseases, or because of cavities or other damage, the teeth whitening gel which is peroxide-based may leech into the nerve tissues and cause irreversible damage. In short, always ensure you have healthy teeth before heading into a Teeth whitening treatment.
Tip #2: Watch What Passes Through Your Lips
Certain food and beverages such as coffee, tea, wine or even blended juices can cause tooth discoloration. Other foods such as dark soy sauce or even curry may also cause staining to the teeth. By limiting these foods, it will help your teeth stay as white as possible post procedure. Otherwise, remember to brush your teeth and wipe then clean after consuming coffee or tea. A consistent habit will help you to save your teeth from getting stained again. Also, do consider eating more foods such as cauliflower, strawberries, seeds and nuts as they may help to whiten teeth and also speed up the whitening process naturally.
Tip #3: You May Need More Than One Treatment to See The Best Results
If you want to maintain your newly whitened teeth, you may require consistent commitment and maintenance. This is to prevent your sparkle from losing its lustre. Also, tying up with tip #2, by having regular maintenance sessions for teeth whitening, you can combat the staining that happens from staining foods and beverages. At Wellaholic, we offer TeethWhite™ Unlimited, which offers 4 weekly treatments a month. This is very popular with our customers who are working to whiten their teeth several shades at a time, as well as to maintain their teeth’s whiteness.
Tip #4: There Is A Limit to What Toothpastes Can Do
You might have seen many toothpaste brands these days, advertising and touting their “special whitening effects”. Unfortunately, health regulations limit the bleaching or peroxide content made available on these toothpastes. In addition, the toothpaste is not on the teeth long enough to be effective, and they will not intrinsically change the internal colour of your teeth effective.
Tip #5: Fake Teeth May Not Whiten
The majority of veneers, crowns and fillings will not brighten or whiten with teeth whitening treatments. This is based on a study by the American Dental Association. Hence, if you are planning to whiten your teeth, you have to be prepared for a mismatch of colouring if you do not replace the older restorations. In any case, always inform your dentist or consultant if you have any veneers, crowns or fillings for them to better advise you.
Tip #6: Not All Teeth Stains Are Easy to Remove
While teeth whitening is effective for most teeth, there is a cosmetic condition also known as “fluorosis”. Fluorosis refers to white spots or fine, chalk-like lines on the surface of your teeth. This is usually caused when your teeth were overexposed to fluoride in the earlier years of your life. These stains are very difficult to treat and may require multiple teeth whitening sessions to see good results.
Tip #7: You Can Whiten Teeth Even If You Have Braces
Yes, it is possible to have pearly whites even when you have braces. Depending on what kind of braces you have, some method may work better than others. Traditional braces, which have brackets that cover the front of your teeth, can limit your whitening options. Other types of braces, such as lingual or removable aligners do not obstruct the surface of the teeth, thus allowing for a more thorough whitening treatment to be completed. Those with braces should consider incorporating teeth whitening in their regular oral care routine.
Up to 12 Shades Whiter with TeethWhite
Wellaholic offers TeethWhite™, a premium teeth-whitening treatment in Singapore, using industrial-grade lamps, which can help whiten your teeth by up to 12 shades with immediate visible results. The primary ingredient in teeth whitening gel is generally Hydrogen peroxide or a close derivative called Carbamide peroxide. The molecules will become active when exposed to your teeth and with strong LED light, thereby helping to whiten your teeth thoroughly. You can see immediate whitening results right after the treatment.
TeethWhite™ is a teeth whitening treatment in Singapore which uses the LED blue wavelength light to activate our teeth whitening gel. The 6000 watt industrial lamp helps catalyse the whitening agent to speed up the reaction and causing free oxygen radicals to be formed. Any discoloured substances in the enamel (the top layer of the tooth) is then able to be removed effectively.

6 Main Types of Body Fat and How You Can Effectively Remove Them
The rising problem of obesity
It’s so easy to put on weight, and so difficult to get back in shape again. Obesity is one of the most common health problems. In fact, nearly 5 million American kids are obese. In England, severe obesity has hit an all-time high among children in England in their last year of primary school, a government report has found. Between 2010 and 2014, obesity surged 24% in Singapore, 27% in Malaysia and 38% in Vietnam.
Not everyone stores fat in the same places
While there are many guides and articles on the internet explaining how to combat obesity and lose weight, a method can be useful for one person but completely unless for another person. Why is this the case? This is because everyone has a specific body type and it is important for each person to understand how his or her body gain weight. Put simply, you have a specific body type. For you to lose weight and get in shape quickly, you will need to know what your body type is and do the right thing. At Wellaholic, we have a list of the body types and how to target each of them for the best weight loss and fat loss results.
Body Type 1: Full Upper Obesity (Android)
Full Upper Body Fat refers to people who tend to eat a lot and are physically inactive. This type of fat accumulates quickly because the person consumes more calories than what he or she can burn it away.
Best Fat Loss Method for Body Type 1
If you belong to this category, you will need to exercise. Aerobic or cardiovascular exercise is essential, because physical activity will help you to burn off the excess calories. Try starting by doing brisk walking, and then gradually progress to slow jogging. You can also consider swimming as the water buoyancy helps you to exercise without increasing the risk of any injuries from running impact. Also, it would be useful to limit your intake of sweets, especially refined sugars. Always avoid soft drinks and desserts as they pack in a lot of unnecessary sugars.
Body Type 2: Stomach-Centred Obesity (Android)
Fat can be easily stored in the stomach or tummy area. This is called Stomach-centred obesity. Abdominal obesity, also known as central obesity, occurs when excessive abdominal fat around the stomach and abdomen has built up to the extent that it is likely to have a negative impact on health. Central obesity has been strongly linked to cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, and other metabolic and vascular diseases. An excess of visceral fat is known as central obesity, the "pot belly" or "beer belly" effect, in which the abdomen protrudes excessively.
Similar to Full Upper Obesity, the main cause is net energy imbalance, where your body consumes more usable calories than it can expend. The main culprits would be the consumption of sugars or fructose, greater meat consumption as well as smoking. Also, a study has shown that alcohol consumption is directly associated with waist circumference and with a higher risk of abdominal obesity in men, but not in women.

If you belong to the Body Type 2, you can try to cut down the consumption of sugars. Also try to eat an moderate amount of meat, and wherever possible avoid alcohol consumption. A permanent routine of exercise, eating healthily, and, during periods of being overweight, consuming the same number or fewer calories than used will prevent and help fight obesity
Body Type 3: Lower Body Obesity (Gynoid)
A gynoid (or pear shaped) body type is typically defined as a rounder, lower half of the body, with more fat deposited in the hips, buttocks and thighs. Conversely, those with an android body type may have greater girth around the chest and abdomen. Gynoid fat in females is used to provide nourishment for offspring and is often referred to as 'reproductive fat'. This is because it contains long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which are important in the development of foetuses. This is also why this body type 3 applies mostly to females. Interestingly, as the female reaches post-menopause, their potential to store fat around the hips and bum decreases and they become much more ‘android’ (see below) in their storage capacity (by as much as 42%). This of course makes sense if female reproductive hormones act as a guide for gynoid storage. Although excess fat levels may lead to the client wishing to reduce them for aesthetic reasons, there is no real immediate health risk of obesity related diseases.
Best Fat Loss Method for Body Type 3
For those with a gynoid body shape (generally seen in women, but can also occur in men), high-intensity interval training and total-body resistance training circuits can be used to effectively burn calories, improve cardiovascular conditioning and reduce subcutaneous fat. Also, try not to skip breakfast. If you do not have a good breakfast to kick-start your metabolism in the morning, you will end up getting more hungry as the day progresses and this will cause you to eat more as a form of overcompensation.
Body Type 4: Swollen Stomach or Belly Bulge
Not all belly bulges are the result of excess fat or weight gain. This could be due to either bloating, menopausal hormonal belly bulge, or a beer belly. Bloating is the feeling of pressure or swelling in the stomach. The most common causes are trapped gas or eating too much in a short time. The sensation of bloating can cause abdominal distention, which is a visible swelling or extension of your belly. For menopausal hormonal belly bulge, the hormonal changes that happen to you may contribute to weight gain, usually a few years before menopause. Last but not least, drinking too much beer maybe lead to a beer belly. Beer is made with hops, and hops contain phytoestrogens, which are plant compounds that have similar effects to the female sex hormone estrogen. Though it hasn’t been proven, there is speculation that the phytoestrogens in beer change the way your body stores belly fat.

As with the rest, by exercising more and eating healthier foods while checking on your calories will help you to lose rather than to gain fat. Always limit your alcohol intake as this has been linked to abdominal obesity. Eat more fibre and drink lots of water to maintain regular bowels. Probiotics can also help you lose weight and reduce bloating.
Body Type 5: Lower Body Fat in the Legs
Sometimes, lower body fat can accumulate in the legs. Leg fat may be comprised of different types of fat cells. Subcutaneous fat is most common in the thighs and located right beneath the skin. Intramuscular fat is the fat dispersed within the muscle itself, much like the marbling seen in meat. Now, most of the leg fat is subcutaneous, which poses fewer long-term health concerns. Leg fat, particularly on the backs of the thighs, often takes the form of cellulite, dimpled fat deposits. Cellulite is incredibly common in women and reducing it is a frequently-cited desire among women trying to lose weight.
Best Fat Loss Method for Body Type 5
The best way to burn overall body fat is via aerobic exercise. One of the best aerobic exercises for the legs would be cycling. This low intensity exercise is easy for beginners as it does not strain the knees, while increasing muscle endurance in various parts of the legs such as the calves, hamstrings, glutes and the quadriceps. Another good exercise would be lunges. Lunges are among the most comprehensive leg workouts because they tone the quads and the hamstrings while also slimming the inner thighs and buttocks.
Body Type 6: Upper Back Fat
Are you being bothered by upper back fat? Back fat can attack in a few different areas. Most men and women experience fat in one of these three areas:
Best Fat Loss Method for Body Type 6
The hardest reality about losing weight is that you can’t just circle a specific spot on your body and melt away the fat. It takes smart full-body training to really burn fat, and you’ll see the results all over. Your number one line of defence against back fat is pull ups. Your back is made up of many different muscles, and a pull-up is an all-encompassing exercise that tones and sculpts them all. Together with pull ups and back exercises, we also highly recommend that you stick to a calorie-deficit diet, which would certainly accelerate your fat loss objectives. If you have tried dieting and exercise and still have trouble with losing back fat, you can consider Wellaholic’s WellaFreeze.
