3 Tips You Have To Do To Get Rid Of Stubborn Belly Fat
Two words: BELLY FAT! Gives you shivers, right? In order to get rid of belly fat, you need to understand it better. First of all belly fat can be in a number of places, NOT just your belly. It can be located just under the skin but…it can also be located deep into your belly area lurking around vital organs. This kind of fat is known as Stubborn Visceral fat. Now that you know what it is, let’s find out how to evict it!
As they say in Italy, “Mangia! Mangia!” Eat, eat! That’s right, eat! If you don’t eat regularly, your system panics and holds onto fat in case there’s a shortage. Your body is incredibly smart and knows when it needs energy. Energy comes from food. It really is that simple. Eating small meals several times a day or healthy portions and healthy food with a few healthy snacks throughout the day ensures your system doesn’t panic. A steady supply of food tells the body to use all the fat it wants. Just don’t intake a ton of fat!

Drinking is a KEY factor in weight loss. First of all, when our bodies are calcium deficient, we produce bad hormones that make us gain weight. So drink your milk like mom says! Secondly, we need fluids to stay hydrated. In addition to being hydrated and saturated in proper amounts of calcium, we need water. Think of water as your body’s personal bouncer. If your bouncer’s hands are full (sugary, carbonated and dye filled drinks) how can it do it’s job of escorting bad stuff out? Water escorts the free radicals, toxins and fat right out of the body. Without it, you may loosen then up by exercise but they can redeposit elsewhere. At night we stop drinking when we sleep, obviously, because our bodies are resting. Take notice of that first morning pee. It is darker and has an odor unlike the rest of the day. That’s because things settled in the bladder over night. If you notice the darker color or odor during the day, that means you’re not drinking enough water.
ZZZZzzzz…Speaking of sleep, sleep allows cells to heal and repair. However, did you know that a lack of sleep can control your hunger? Well, truth-be-told, it controls your hunger hormones. Ghrelin tells your body it’s hungry, while Leptin says when it’s full. These two get off balance when there’s not enough sleep. Sleep deprived people have proven to have more Ghrelin and less Leptin. The theory is that it’s because you’re staying up and your body wants the energy to stay up. Going to sleep 7.5 hours a night is what is highly recommended to keep these hormones in check.
