A little fat on the stomach, in fact, is not so bad. But only a little, because it protects your stomach, intestines and other organs from mechanical damage. This fat can also be used on days when you do not eat anything. But, when you have a lot of this fat – it is not a healthy situation and it is fraught with high blood pressure, diabetes and even colon cancer. Here are some common mistakes that prevent us from bidding farewell to visceral fat once and for all.
You are dieting without the “right” fats
“Correct” means monounsaturated, or, more precisely, monounsaturated fatty acids. Many, to lose weight, refuse all fats, including monounsaturated. And this is a gross mistake. Because such fats are necessary for the brain and the body as a whole. Such, for example, include nuts, avocados, olives and cold pressed olive oil, as well as peanut butter. It is proved that with a diet which contains a high level of monounsaturated fatty acids, fat leaves faster, and a third is just visceral. Monoacids are therefore called saturated, because they quickly saturate, and this helps us to consume less food and, accordingly, calories.
You have stress or depression
Do not be surprised, but it also affects your figure. In a recent study by the University of Rush Medical Center, scientists have proven that the depressive state affects the reduction of physical activity (even if the person continues to work, the load is greatly reduced). And also on nutrition – lots of sweets and other “garbage” products, and here you go – extra calories as they are. If you are in a depressing mood, on the contrary, strengthen the load. It will regulate the metabolism of fats, not to mention the mood!
You avoid cardio loads
Going to the gym is good. But pumping exercises must necessarily be combined with aerobic exercise. These are the one that helps burn fat. Download Kyle Cooper’s book The Fat Decimator right now to find out how to start burning fat in your body right now.
Your food is out of the box
It means everything that is sold in packages, for example, various drinks, chips, fast food. Such food is stored for a long time, which means that various emulsifiers, preservatives and other chemicals are added to it. Plus sugar. All this stimulates the liver to store reserves in the form of fat. Do not forget: the best food is the one cooked by yourself, steamed and with a minimum of salt and spices.
You like burgers…
When Swedish researchers divided the participants of the experiment into two groups in one study, the participants in the first group were given a daily nutritional rate of 1500 calories – and basically they consisted of salads and useful carbohydrates. At the same time, people in the second group were fed with hamburgers, though with the same amount of calories – 1500/day. And, the results showed that after seven weeks of experiment the participants of the second group accumulated twice as much visceral fat!
You like beer
Alcohol is associated with weight gain. And although the beer more provokes the appearance of a “wheel” around the abdomen, wine can also be considered the culprit of your “tummy.” The latter is especially true for women.
You save on mineral water
Many know about the benefits of water for a figure. However, in order to save, they prefer to drink regular tap water. Don’t do that! Mineral water is not simply purified compared to that which flows from the pipe, it also contains useful minerals, including magnesium. A study in 2013 showed that people who consumed it more, had a lower level of sugar and insulin in their blood. And, at least twice a day, eat foods rich in magnesium, such as dark green leafy, bananas, soy and beans.
You drink diet coke and other drinks
Dietary drinks or water marked “zero” or “light” – one of the reasons why people do not lose weight. Although, it would seem, it should be vice versa. Why is that? Because people overestimate the effect of such drinks – dietary does not yet mean “zero calories.” And even more, it does not mean that such drinks are completely harmless. People forget about it and drink it like crazy. The result is later seen on your waist and abdomen.
