SlenderForm Lipogone Lab Series
The Lipogon Lab Series Difference
By incorporating naturopathy LIPOGON LAB SERIES has identified 3 primary body shapes. The 3 different Lipogon Body Shapes have an accumulation of fat in specific areas of the body. The cause of the fat accumulation in specific areas of the body identified as the LIPOGON BODY SHAPES may be due to specific hormonal imbalances. Clients often complain about not seeing results, being on a weight loss plateau and not being able to get rid of stubborn body fat. However, losing weight is not about counting calories or macro’s or fibre or fat content. It is not about starvation diets. A healthy diet should address all the factors concerning weight loss. The endocrine system and hormones play an important role in successful weight loss. This is a factor that is often ignored by many diet plans. It is imperative to have comprehensive knowledge of the endocrine system and hormones which impact the body’s ability to burn fat. The inability to lose weight is often due to underlying hormonal imbalances. Weight gain may be a symptom of these imbalances. The Lipogon Body Shapes will help you understand the possible underlying causes that may contribute to weight gain. Understanding the link between hormonal imbalances and weight loss is imperative for a successful weight loss and slimming practice.

TRIANGLE BODY SHAPE
The cause of fat accumulation in the specific areas of this client may be due to chronic inflammation. The hormones that play a role in inflammation and fat storage are Cortisol and Insulin. This body shape can be recognised by fat stored in and around the abdomen with a sagging belly, fat storage around the bum in the shape of an inverted triangle. Adrenal stress and adrenal fatigue play a role in the inability to lose weight.
SYMPTOMS OF THE TRIANGLE BODY SHAPE
- Control freak, can’t seem to relax, overthinking
- Waking up during the night for no reason
- Premature ageing of the body and the skin due to a loss of collagen
- Elevated appetite, constant need to eat or snack
- Acid reflux
HEART BODY SHAPE
The cause of fat accumulation in the specific areas of this client may be due to an imbalance of the thyroid hormones. The hormones that play a role in this body shape are thyroid hormone and possibly oestrogen. Oestrogen dominance is most likely causing a disruption of your metabolic rate, by interfering with the function of your thyroid gland. The primary area of fat storage in the Heart Shaped Body type will be found on the saddle bags in younger individuals. Older individuals will accumulate abdominal fat with an inability to lose weight, accompanied by fat around the saddle bags area.
SYMPTOMS OF THE HEART BODY SHAPE
Heavy irregular periods and cramping
May resemble low thyroid hormone
Body temperature irregularities
- Hot flushes
SQUARE BODY SHAPE
This body shape can be recognised by storing fat all over, not in any particular position. However, the overall fat distribution around the bum will resemble the shape of a square. The Square Body Shape may have symptoms related to an imbalance in thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland of this client may not be functioning optimally. The hormones of the thyroid are not being processed by the body due to other underlying causes and secondary issues in the body. In this case, a holistic approach is advisable.
SYMPTOMS OF THE SQUARE BODY SHAPE
- Chronic Inflammation
- Loss of body hair
- Dry, patchy skin
- Intolerance to cold
- Muscle cramps and weakness
- Irregular and heavy periods
- Weight gain
