6 Types Of Body Fat & How To Get Rid Of It

Obesity is one of the most common modern health problems, and it can be a result of various factors, therefore, its treatments can be different.

Yet, various methods often fail to provide results, so researchers have finally found the reason for it.

A recent Yorkshire Health study involved 4,000 obese adults, who were divided into 6 categories:

  • Young healthy females – obese women who generally had fewer obesity-related issues, like type 2 diabetes
  • Heavy-drinking males — obese men with fewer problems due to obesity, but with higher alcohol intake
  • Unhappy and anxious middle-aged – predominantly women with damaged mental health and wellbeing
  • Affluent and healthy elderly – people with generally optimal health, but defining features of higher alcohol intake and high blood pressure
  • Physically sick but happy elderly – older people with good mental health, who suffer from chronic diseases, like osteoarthritis
  • Poorest health – people who suffer from the greatest number of chronic diseases and who were the most economically deprived
