Are You Adding Fat to Your Tummy Every Day? Here’s How to Get Rid of It
Posted: Nov 13, 2017
Many factors can keep you from a flat tummy, and your dietary habits and daily routines are among the biggest culprits. Below are some of the main reasons why the weight you gain always seem to camp in your tummy:
- You eat more sugary foods and drink more sugary beverages than you should. The more sugar you take in on a daily basis, the more susceptible you are to belly fat gain. A high-fructose diet can be problematic, more so when you consume sweet drinks, which makes it easier to take in large doses of sugar that turn to visceral fat.
- You consume too much alcohol. Alcohol is a double-edged sword that can have helpful and harmful effects to your health. In moderate amounts, alcohol can lower your risk of cardiac attacks and stroke. On the other hand, too much alcohol intake may lead to health problems like inflammation and liver disease. Alcohol also suppresses fat burning, while the excess calories you get from drinking alcoholic beverages are partly stored as tummy fat, thus the term beer belly.
- You live a sedentary lifestyle. Not only does a sedentary lifestyle lead to a round mid-section, it is also one of the biggest factors that lead to poor health. Less active individuals are more likely to become abdominally obese. Resistance to exercise also promotes increase in belly fat and abdominal fat regain.
