Adipose tissue distribution changes during rapid weight loss in obese adults

, : Adipose tissue distribution changes during rapid weight loss in obese adults. International Journal of Obesity 15(11): 733-739

Changes in adipose tissue distribution as defined by the waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), were evaluated in 16 android, obese subjects (seven male and nine female) given a very low energy ketogenic diet of 1.72 MJ (411 kcal) for 4 weeks. Total weight loss was significantly greater for the males (11.2 +/- 2.5 kg) compared to females (8.3 +/- 0.8 kg); the relative weight loss however, was similar (9.9 vs 9.3 percent). Female and male losses in percent body fat and lean body mass were not significantly different. For both groups, significant (P less than 0.01) changes in waist and hip circumferences were observed; however, no significant changes were observed in WHR. These results indicate that in obese android male and female subjects, adipose tissue distribution as measured by WHR, does not change in response to rapid weight loss.
