Have you neglected your diet and recent times? Have you taken a stomach because you are not physically active?
If you want to reduce your waist and lose belly, for aesthetic reasons but also health, follow these tips.
But before finding the right solution for losing weight effectively, let's start by explaining why we tend to accumulate fat in this area of the body.
Why is belly fat bad?
Storing fat in the belly means that fatty acids are released continuously into our body.
In fact, fat releases fatty acids into the circulation that are toxic to the organs.
Fat is itself a tissue that can produce inflammatory substances (and therefore cause inflammation) that will have a toxicity in organs such as the pancreas, the liver. It can promote disruptions that can lead to diabetes, hypertension, etc. It is a particular tissue that stores and releases fatty acids permanently.
Apart from the aesthetic aspect, it is also for medical reasons that it is recommended to people with bouncy abdomen, to lose belly ...
Several factors come into play and promote the accumulation of fat in the belly.
- First, there is a genetic factor. Some people have greater susceptibilities of storing fat in the belly than others. For example, for 1 kilo taken, some will store in the stomach, others in the lower part of the body.
- There is also an environmental origin, related to hygiene life. The three main factors are: physical inactivity, diet, lack of sleep.
- It should also add smoking that promotes fat accumulation in the belly. At equal weight, a person who smokes will have more fat in the belly than someone who does not smoke.
If we do not have the opportunity to change our genetic factors, we can, however, play on our lifestyle to lose belly quickly.
