Beer Belly

Burning away your beer belly is not an impossible task!

Our bodies are programmed to hold fat in reserve for times of starvation. If you exercise more than 30 minutes, will start to trigger your body to start tapping into this fat reserve and burn it as fuel.

For moderate exercises, you might have to exercise longer than 30 minutes. And we mean exercise, not shopping in the mall. You can shop till you drop but you won’t even start to melt those fat reserve. How we wish losing that beer belly can be so enjoyable. Who doesn’t love shopping!

How did our beer belly became a mini volcano.

  • Environmental factors, eating processed foods, a sedentary lifestyle, little or no exercise at all
  • We eat and drink more calories than our body can use up.

What can we do to rid our beer belly.

  • Get your beauty sleep!
    The better you sleep, the less extra weight you are likely to gain.
    A 2006 study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed that people who slept 5 or fewer hours per night over a period of 16 years were more likely to gain weight than those who slept for longer than 7 hours per night.
    A lack of sleep may have caused changes in hunger hormones, increased in appetite and a higher risk of obesity. Although it is true that every individual needs different hours of sleep, most studies have shown that sleeping at least 7 hours a night benefits body weight and fat levels.
  • Build more muscles. 🏋️🏋️‍♀️
    Muscle tissues have a higher metabolic activity than fat tissue. Therefore if you have more muscles, you have a higher Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). BMR is an estimate of how many calories your body burns while you are at rest. If you have a low BMR, you are burning fewer calories over time.
    For instance, start lifting weights, light dumbells to build your muscle mass, stronger bones and joints. Ask your personal gym instructor for more of such exercises.
  • Let’s get physical.💃
    Physical activities simply means movement of the body that uses energy.
    The four main types of physical activity are aerobic, muscle-strengthening, bone-strengthening, and stretching. For health benefits, physical activity should be moderate or vigorous intensity.
    Above all, frequent and regular physical exercise boosts the immune system too.
  • Watch your diet.
    A well balanced diet is your beer belly greatest enemy.
    Therefore, eat plenty of soluble fibre. This type of fibre promotes weight loss by helping you feel full, so you naturally eat less. Excellent sources of soluble fibre include flaxseed, brussels sprouts, avocados, legumes and blackberries.
    Similarly, avoid Foods That Contain Trans Fats and eat a high protein diet.

In conclusion, getting rid of the beer belly requires effort, commitment and perseverance. It is advisable to get professional consultancy before you embark on any exercise or diet. This article is merely for general educational purposes only.
