Here's How Much Weight The Average Singaporean Gains After Entering The Workforce

April 20, 2023

Many people have tried going on fad diets but they end up on a yo-yo diet, where one loses an amount of weight, and then gains it all back…and then some.

As we get older, our metabolism naturally slows down.

The change in lifestyle, from students to working adults, plays a large part in our weight gains and losses too.

Many people have tried going on fad diets but they end up on a yo-yo diet, where one loses an amount of weight, and then gains it all back…and then some.

The cycle repeats, but it only brings more harm than good for the body.

There are a variety of reasons why we gain weight when we enter the workforce – stress and age are some of the most obvious reasons.

While you can’t stop your body from ageing, stress is something we can control (or at least, learn to manage).

In a JobsCentral online survey in 2013, it found that 61.7 percent of Singaporean workers have gained weight since starting work, and 16.8 percent of those surveyed have gained “at least 20kg since joining the workforce”.

This is also in line with the results from a Health Promotion Board (HPB) study.

Men put on more weight than women

According to The Straits Times, the average Singaporean is 3kg heavier than he/she was 15 years ago.

Both studies also show that men put on more weight than women, even though women are more prone to gaining weight.

While the HPB study showed that the cause of these weight gain was an increase in calorie intake (2 percent more than their recommended), the JobsCentral survey showed 76.1 percent of respondents saying it was the lack of time and energy for exercise.

Achieving A Slim And Healthy Body Doesn’t Have To Be Hard

Sticking to an exercise regimen or a meal plan for the diet you’re following can be very difficult.

This takes a lot of discipline and willpower to follow, which is rather difficult for the majority of working people.

But with the help of a professional and a weight loss plan that is designed to your body’s needs, it doesn’t have to be a chore.

Amaris B. Clinic’s customised weight loss program has helped many to lose weight, adopt a healthier lifestyle and take control of obesity-related conditions including diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and arthritis.

Losing the extra kilos is about getting the life-saving and life-changing benefits that come along with it, like lower blood cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.

You’ll also have decreased pain, fewer medications, increased mobility and energy, and improved sleep—better overall quality of life.

Individualised approach to healthy weight loss

Amaris B. Clinic’s individualised approach to healthy weight loss addresses each client’s unique medical, nutritional, and fitness needs.

With that data, they are able to identify realistic lifestyle changes, assist with goal-setting, and start individuals on a path to sustainable weight loss and better health.

Even after losing the extra kilos, but stubborn areas of fat have yet to trim?

Vaser Liposuction: Trimming stubborn fat

Going on the Vaser Liposuction treatment, a minimally-invasive liposuction technique can help with that. It can target the fat tissues in specific areas, like the arms and effectively get rid of those Bingo wings.

This can be the solution for extremely stubborn and seemingly impossible fats that can’t shift with dieting and exercising alone.

Vaser Liposuction utilises ultrasound waves to selectively destruct fat cells by means of emulsification and enhances skin tightening which is not achievable by traditional liposuction. The procedure only targets fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues undamaged, and involves minimal downtime leaving you with more defined and slimmer arms.

Guided by Dr Ivan Puah of the Amaris B. Clinic, who is the leading physician in the field of body sculpting and aesthetic medicine since 2004, you’ll be able to achieve a healthier you and regain body confidence.
