An expanding waistline is sometimes seen as the price of getting older. For women, this may be especially true after menopause, when body fat tends to shift from the arms, legs and hips to the abdomen. Yet an increase in belly fat may do more than make it hard to zip up your jeans. Research indicates that it also can raise your risk of numerous health consequences. It is very important to understand what is causing belly fat in the first place in order to start working on them. Sometimes making small changes in your lifestyle makes a lot of difference.
Here are a few reasons which cause belly fat :
- Wrong eating for your body type. Different bodies need different eating plans.
- Incorrect exercise for your body type. Sustained high pulse rate exercise can work against fat burning. The body burns fat when hormones are triggered correctly.
- Incorrect exercise pattern. Optimum exercise can be determined by measuring the person’s activation and recover periods.
- Overtraining. Fat burning occurs 24-48 hours later in the rest period, not during exercise.
- Low potassium foods. Potassium assists in inhibiting fat storage.
- Poor and inadequate sleep. Fat burning occurs in deep sleep, not during the day.
- Environmental hormone mimickers. Endocrine disruptions can inhibit hormone function.
- Dieting over cravings or hunger. High nutrient dense foods turn off cravings and excessive hunger. Hinger triggers cortisol.
- Wrong protein consumption. Poor quality or excessive protein can inhibit the liver’s ability to store fat.
- Poor enzyme consumption. Foods that are cooked, processed, refined, pasteurised, and roasted inhibit enzymes.
- Hidden fluid retainers. Hidden sodium content in MSG as modified food starch and artificial sweeteners can influence fluid weight gain.
- Gland inhibitors. Alcohol, drugs, chemicals and synthetic sugars in foods can inhibit glands and organ functions.
- Hidden sugars. Sugar triggers insulin and in the presence of insulin, fat burning hormones are inhibited.
- High stress quals high cortisol. The high stress hormone cortisol can inhibit fat burning hormones.
- Eating for calorie reduction and not for health. It’s nit “lose weight to get healthy”. It’s “get healthy to lose weight”.
