Recently I often hear about topics related to visceral fat and lifestyle diseases.
Obesity, hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia (diabetes), hypertension and so on.
The state where these are compounded is called “metabolic syndrome”, and the cause of the disease may be visceral fat type obesity, abnormal lipid metabolism, abnormality of glucose metabolism, abnormality of blood pressure, etc.
By the way, let’s tell about various ways of metabolic syndrome and how to improve by diet therapy this time.
Metabolic Syndrome The cause of metabolic syndrome is overeatment and lack of exercise. It may cause visceral fat, abnormal metabolism may occur if visceral fat is made more than necessary. As symptoms progress,
blood cholesterol and neutral fat increase more than necessary, causing arteriosclerosis.
Since eating habits and exercise can prevent and improve in many cases, let’s review the lifestyle first.
◆ Are you a metabolic syndrome? What? What?
□ Are you making belly buttons?
□ Do you take a lot of dietary fiber such as vegetables?
□ Are you chewing and eating slowly?
□ Have you used oils with a lot of oil ingredients for cooking?
□ Have you refrained from eating out supper?
□ Are you using a lot of seasoning, such as soy sauce, yakumatsuyu, or much?
□ Is alcohol used moderately?
Those who apply mostly to these check items may be a metabolic syndrome.
Let’s try to figure out more in detail.
◆ Diagnostic criteria for
metabolic syndrome · Establishment of diagnostic criteria for metabolic syndrome in April 2005
【Accumulation of visceral fat】
① Waist circumference male ≧ 85 cm
Female ≧ 90 cm
(corresponding to ≧ 100 cm² for both internal fat area and males and females)
② blood glucose level → hungry Hypoglycemia ≧ 110 mg / dL
③ blood pressure → systolic phase (maximum) blood pressure ≧ 130 mm Hg
diastolic (minimum) blood pressure ≧ 85 mm Hg
④ serum lipid → high triglycerideemia ≧ 150 mg / dL
low HDL cholesterolaemia <40 mg / dL
※ If more than 2 items out of 3 items of ① waist circumference plus, ② ~ ④ apply, please take medical examinations or get medical examination at your family’s medical facility etc.
In my example, I was hospitalized because I had a sickness, but before I was hospitalized I was obese. However, when I was discharged because of the hospital stay during hospitalization I was losing 6 kg. Even now, I continue diet restrictions at home. In this way, it is better to continue the meal restriction so that rebounding does not become metabolism even after giving results with the first meal restriction.
“Continuity is power” is not it?
◆ Improve meals and review lifestyle
<Before reviewing the amount to eat …>
It is important to eat with a diet regimen considering the balance of calorie and nutrients, but
try ① “bellybone”.
② It is important to incorporate ‘Japanese food’ with less animal fat.
It is very easy to take Western food such as bread meal and cornflakes at breakfast, but why not try switching to “Japanese food” considering the disease?
Vegetables, beans, mushrooms, seaweeds, etc. are low calories,
and it is also one of the optimal ingredients that do not increase visceral and visceral fat if you mention the ingredients.
Besides, this dietary fiber will also act as a hindrance to the absorption of lipids and carbohydrates in the body, so
it will be like two birds with one stone.
<Review of lifestyle habits>
First of all, what will lead to lifestyle diseases? What? What?
Generally said cause is like this.
· Meals / diet
· irregular sleep
· lack of exercise
· menopause (disease due to decrease in female hormone)
Such a thing is now spreading also for children, and
it is an era when the disease name of pediatric lifestyle disease (children’s illness) is emerging.
In such a background, when an adult shows such a cause as described above, it
infects children as well as a chain, and it falls into a vicious circle.
