The EASIEST Way To Melt Off Belly Fat
By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
Everyone has it…
Some have more than others – but everyone has some layer of belly fat.
But what is it?
Most people think that belly fat – or fat in general – are greasy pockets, full of fatty acids they get from food.
But what they may not know – and what you are going to find out – is that belly fat is SO MUCH MORE than that.
In fact, up until recently, the common thought of fat was just that – greasy, fat-filled-pockets.
But today, we know better.
Now we understand that fat – as a major endocrine organ – produces and releases powerful hormones – that have one sole purpose – to burn fat and regulate your energy levels.
However, with the state of society today – the fast food, high trans-fats, and very processed and nutrient poor food choices – we have ballooned as a population where there are more overweight or obese people than ever before.
So what can you do to help?
The Sad State of Our Nation
You may be asking, “being a little overweight isn’t that bad for you, right?”
And the answer would be YES!
Being even FIVE to TEN pounds overweight may lead to changes in your body, that prevent the release – or your body using – the powerful hormones that your fat cells create.
And that means that your body may have a harder time regulating and burning energy.
Now, there are two different types of fat – and one is worse than the other – that you can find on your body.
But no matter what type you have – the MORE you have, the higher your risk for disease is!
The first type of fat – subcutaneous – is the kind that lies right above your muscle tissue, immediately under your skin.
This is the type you would normally find hanging over your belt, obscuring the view of your feet, and what you consider unsightly when you look in the mirror.
This type is dangerous to have in your body, but not quite as dangerous as the next type.
The second type is visceral fat.
Visceral fat lies deeper in your body, wrapped around organs and, in some cases, in your muscles.
This is the type of fat – that if you have more of it – may lead to diabetes, heart disease, and other diseases.
It releases powerful hormones that cause damage to cells, vessels, and other areas of your body.
The more you have, well, the higher your risk for disease and even death becomes.
So what can you do to lower your risk?
3 Ways To Lower Your Risk
There are three specific ways to reverse your fatty trends.
These three tips should help you cut down on the fat, PLUS, burn more fat in the process!
1. Back Away From the White Stuff
Everyone says that diet is 80 percent of the battle – and they would be correct!
Staying away from foods that will boost your fat are keys when trying to lose weight.
Sugar may be the number one culprit when it comes to gaining weight and fat.
You see, when you eat a lot of sugar, there is a rise in your blood sugar. Now, your body will release insulin to counteract the rise in blood sugar, therefore ridding it from your bloodstream.
The only problem: Insulin may encourage more of that sugar to be stored as fat, therefore preventing the one thing you want--fat loss.
Avoiding or limiting your intake of sugar may do wonders for your weight--and fat loss!
2. Have to Eat the Fat to Burn the Fat
It’s true! Remember, sugar, not fat, is the main culprit to weight gain!
Good fats like polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats – when part of a healthy diet – have been shown to help burn fat and keep your weight down.
And besides that, the fats found in fish, walnuts, and other nuts--omega-3 fatty acids--have been linked to both weight loss and other major health improvements that include your eyes, brain, heart, and even in preventing some forms of cancer.
Besides the health benefits, essential fats have been linked to better meal satisfaction and appetite control.
Now that’s a fat that I’m ready to eat!
3. Catch Your ZZZZZZ’s
Sleep may be the biggest culprit (next to sugar) for excess weight and fat gain.
The problem: As a society, we don’t get enough sleep!
And that leads to a very sleepy, groggy, and grumpy society.
But sleep is important for managing your cortisol levels.
The fact is, the less sleep you have, the higher your cortisol levels are.
And this encourages the breakdown of your muscle tissue (metabolism booster) and encourages fat accumulation.
Getting enough sleep--and managing your stress levels--may lead to better cortisol levels and better weight loss.
The Easy Ways to Burning FAT
Burning fat is much harder today than it was 50 years ago – or even 20 years ago!
The right diet and exercise program may not be enough to shred the fat and get your into your skinny jeans.
However, using these three tips, you may find yourself on the path to better weight loss and weight management.
These tips are not very hard to implement, but if done the right way, you may find yourself leaner in ONE MONTH, than you have seen – or felt - in years.
