Electro-Acupuncture Treatment of Obesity
Russian scientists have discovered that acupuncture can help children suffering from constitutional exogenous obesity.
Electroacupuncture was given to 62 children with constitutional exogenic obesity and the children’s body mass and lipid metabolism were monitored both before and after the treatment.
Reduction of Body Mass Index and Fat
The treatment was found to have a beneficial effect; not only did the children report feeling better within themselves, but tests showed that the treatment led to body mass reduction and decrease of fatty tissue content, increased performance abilities, recovery of cardiovascular function, and normalization of blood serum lipids.
The results were so significant that the researchers recommended that acupuncture treatment should be utilised for children with constitutional exogenic obesity.

Weight Loss Advice
No matter how much excess weight or fat you have, if you want to lose weight permanently, your diet program should be directed toward a slow, steady weight loss. According to official government dietary guidelines, unless your doctor feels your particular health condition would benefit from more rapid weight loss, you should expect to lose no more than 2 pounds of fat a week, although initial loss (mainly water) may be greater. Losing more weight is no guarantee that weight loss is likely to be permanent.
