The main reasons for excess belly fat is lack of exercise, diet which includes food flavorings as well, and years of improper dieting. So what is your next step in finally getting rid of the belly fat? If you are looking for the 8-pack abs, you will need to do the sit-ups, but if you just want to drop the fat and establish a “less mushy” waistline, there are a few key things that you can do to get rid of the “mush.”
- Reduce cortisol by using a natural “Stress Reducing” Supplement
- Reduce the amount of salt in your diet
- Add cruciferous vegetables to your diet
- Start your day with a natural protein shake that contains Leucine
- Drink enough purified, pH balanced water
Cortisol is a stress hormone and is linked to excess belly fat, otherwise know as visceral fat. When there is excess cortisol in your body, you will store excess body fat in your abdominal area. By using a supplement that is natural helps you in times of high stress, your body won’t need to store the excess.
When wanting to reduce abdominal fat or that “mush” , reducing salt will lower the water retention in that area and your waistline will become smaller. Salt or sodium is hidden in all sorts of foods. By watching labels, cutting down on eating out, and eating as much raw, organic food as possible, your salt consumption will go down and so will your waistline.
Cruciferous vegetables are vegetables that contain phytochemicals,vitamins and minerals, and fiber that are important to your health. They are also known for their properties to specifically reduce belly fat. These vegetables belong to the cabbage family… such as…broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, and bok choy.
Starting your day off with a healthy breakfast will reduce cravings, give you energy and help in your weight-loss. My favorite is a protein shake . For one it loads you up with the nutrition that you need and aids you in your weight loss. Be certain that it is natural and contains the right amount of Leucine. Leucine will assist in preserving those precious muscles and allow the fat to be lost.
Drink water! There are many benefits as you know in drinking water because we are primarily made of water. Specifically in our abdominal area, it will prevent water retention and as we are losing weight, we need that water to flush the fat from our bodies. Along with this, make sure is is purified water, preferably add electrolyte and pH drops. Un purified water may contain chemicals which can contribute to the storage of more belly and body fat. By alkalizing your water with pH drops, you’ll enhance your weight-loss and improve your health.
By doing these five items, you can say goodbye to that stubborn, unattractive, unhealthy belly fat.
