You are on a fat loss mission. With intense workouts and a strict diet, you lose fat from most parts of your body except your tummy. Sounds familiar? Join the club. Most people wanting to lose weight face the same problem. Burning fat from any part of the body is much easier when compared to the belly region. No wonder it’s called ‘stubborn’ fat. But, don’t give up yet as we have found a possible solution to flatten your stomach quickly. Curious much? Read on to know more.
Before we tell you about the magical drink that can burn your belly fat, first let’s understand why exactly it is difficult to lose weight.
Why Is It Hard To Burn Belly Fat?
When you binge eat, the first area that shows signs of weight gain is definitely your stomach. Not just poor eating habits, having a desk job can also easily add a few inches around your waist. Inactivity leads to muscle loss, which lowers your body’s capacity to burn calories. This is why you will notice the fat getting accumulated around your abdominal region. You might even start eating less and exercising more but to no avail.
A bulging stomach is not only an ugly sight but also spells danger as it could be a sign of heart disease.
Here are the reasons your belly is refusing to budge.
Drinking alcohol could be adding more calories than you can imagine. It widens your waistline. Now you understand why your stomach is called ‘beer’ belly?
A girl in her teens is more likely to lose weight quicker than a woman who has reached 30. The reason is simple. As you age, your metabolic rate goes down, and so does the body’s ability to burn fat. Hormonal imbalance and menopause translate to more fat around your tummy. So, if you are in a relaxed mode thinking you have a lifetime ahead of you to lose weight, this is a wake-up call.
When you make a plan to workout, make sure you consult a fitness instructor. What worked for your friend need not necessarily work for you. Speak to a trainer who will recommend activities/exercises depending on your body type and its capacity. For example, a person with low hemoglobin cannot run as the heart takes double the effort to pump blood due to lack of iron in the body. So, it helps to know your body’s strength and weaknesses before starting any exercise. You don’t want to end up with another health issue, do you?
What’s on your plate?
When you talk of belly fat, it’s more often than not linked to inflammation. If you are having too much of outside food or what’s called junk food like chips, aerated drinks, processed foods, it can thwart your body’s ability to burn fat around your belly. Always stick to natural foods as they have anti-inflammatory properties.
One of the leading contributing factors to weight gain these days is the rising levels of stress. Hectic work schedules, increased domestic responsibilities, the environment at home and work – all these can lead to an increased level of stress. How many times haven’t you reached out for a bottle of beer or a pack of French fries to get over your pressures? The comfort that these foods give will increase your emotional eating indulgences. Besides, the stress hormone cortisol is linked to visceral fat. The bottom line is to stay calm. Meditate, take up a hobby or your favorite sport to bring down your stress levels.
Lack of sleep
The best way to lose weight is to get enough sleep. Lack of sleep leads to low energy levels that make you reach out for sugary stuff, which ultimately leads to weight gain.
Are you healthy?
When was the last time you did a complete body check up? Every person must get a full body examination done at least once a year. Your body’s requirement, ability, and condition change depending on what you eat and the environment. So, keep a check on the changes in your body. People with thyroid issues and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) are more likely to face difficulty in losing weight as compared to their healthy counterparts.
Now that you know why you are not losing weight, let’s take a look at the magical cure to lose belly fat. This is a simple solution that will drive all your weight loss worries away. So, all set to know what it is? Here you go…
