I believe we all know at least one person who seems to act proud of that belly they have. Either they act proud or they laugh it off with a joke or two. They claim it is the beer and cold weather insulation.
I find it impossible to laugh at these statements!
I don’t mean to seem cold hearted or the dull one at the party, but it saddens me. It cuts to my heart because I wonder how much shorter that person’s life span will be. I have a desire that they live life to its fullest but if that belly fay is allowed to remain, the odds are unlikely.
So before I move forward with today’s post, I must ask you to
Please share this with people. There are social media buttons at the end to allow you to do so.
In this post, I am going to explain about belly fat, why it is so dangerous, what to eat and how to start erasing that belly fat.
There are 2 types of belly fat
Belly fat comes in two forms. Both are dangerous to your health, but one holds a higher amount of danger than the other. Both types can lead to:
- heart disease
- high blood pressure
- and many more health issues
This form of belly fat is normally soft and covers the abs and is immediately below the skin. I would say it is easier to get rid of than the next type. Much of that just requires proper diets and exercise.
Visceral fat is extremely dangerous. You can tell if your belly fat is visceral fat if it feels hard when you push on it. Visceral fat is deeper in your abdomen behind your muscle and surrounding your organs. This is the most common fat when associating “beer belly.” And you can see why it is so dangerous just in the fact that it surrounds your organs. I look on it like a boa constrictor snake squeezing your organs and suffocating them.
Studies have also shown that visceral fat releases inflammatory molecules into your system on a consistent basis.
Is it just beer that causes visceral fat? NO!!
Beer is high in carbs so it plays a role, but all foods high in carbs, high in sugars and starches create visceral fat. All of this not only creates visceral fat, it leads to insulin resistance. It is no wonder that diabetes levels have skyrocketed.
One of the primary contributors to visceral fat is high fructose corn syrup.
Read labels and take the high fructose corn syrup out of your diet and you are making an active start in ridding your body of visceral fat.
The only ways to get rid of visceral fat
There are 2 things you need to do on a consistent basis to erase that visceral fat:
1: Exercise: You need high intensity exercise. The low intensity exercises will not do it. Some of the exercises you need to look into are:
- Interval training
- Sprints – Running or bicycle
- Complete body weight training
I can help you design a complete exercise program to get the visceral fat off. Feel free to contact me.
2: Your diet: You MUST eliminate sugars, starches and most importantly, high fructose corn syrup. Increase protein intake and healthy fats such as:
- Nuts and seeds
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
- Grass fed meat and butter
- Fatty fish
Eliminate many of the grains and you will be much better off.
A secret from Tara
What many people do not know is that certain chemicals that have been introduced into our food from pesticides, herbicides, pollution and more are forcing our bodies to store excess fat. These are known as xenoestrogens. And, it is believed these also lead to various cancers.
You need to eat a heavy supply of vegetables that fight xenoestrogens. Here are some of the veggies:
- Brussels Sprouts
Yes, cruciferous vegetables have nutrients that are a huge defensive force against xenoestrogens.
I know of a product that can give you a huge supply of these nutrients and many more. You will love the Daily Dose Organic Super Greens. Check them out here.
Let’s work together and get your body free of abdominal fat. I long to see you healthy and enjoying life.
