According to government statistics, more than half of Hong Kong's population is overweight.
The findings are the result of a three-year survey of over 12,000 adults ranging in age from 15 to 84. It was discovered that people's diets are high in salt and low in fruits and vegetables. (Only 5.6% of respondents eat at least five servings each day, as recommended by the World Health Organization.)
Long working hours and little exercise were blamed in part for the rise in obesity in Hong Kong, as was the city's fondness for buffet-style dining
Dr. Norbert Egger, an Austrian sports scientist, established Hypoxi in 1998 to investigate why people struggled to lose fat in some areas of their bodies despite diets and exercise. According to his findings, fat burns more efficiently in parts of the body with superior blood flow. He developed the Hypoxi technique, which uses suction and compression therapy to enhance blood circulation to "problem" areas like the stomach and thighs, allowing for targeted fat removal.
