Shrink Your Middle

December 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The ever so fabulous tummy area :P For most women and some men, we struggle with losing belly fat and we have no idea why. Here are 5 reasons you may fall into this category and how to change it up!

 

No1 You’re on a low-fat diet

 

  • This is a huge mistake that many people make and in order to shed belly fat, our diets must include monounsaturated fatty acids. Try and include a handful of nuts, a table spoon of olive oil, or a fourth of an avcado.

 

No2 Diet Soda

 

  • Studies have shown that diet soda drinkers were more likely to have higher belly fat percentages. The reason being is the calorie mistake within your diet. Try reducing your calorie intake when consuming diet sodas.

 

No3 Your sweat sessions don’t involve sweat

 

  • Studies have shown that high-intensity intervals followed by short periods of gentle activity or rest, helps aid in shrinking belly fat.

 

No4 Feeling Down

 

  • Women with depressive symptoms are far more likely to have extra belly fat. The simplest way to fix this is by exercising! It helps to improve levels of brain chemicals that regulate metabolism of fat, as well as your mood.

 

No5 Boxed Food

 

  • Simple carbs and added sugar cause your blood sugar to spike, which triggers a flood of insulin. This hormone encourages your liver to store fat in the middle. Try adding a healthy flare to your meals, rather than focusing your time on cutting out junk.

 

I hope you enjoyed this post about your middle! Now it’s time to get the ball moving!

 

Stay Strong & True to Yourself <3
