Having a big tummy is always a big problem. Dr Michael Karangwa shares the following tips on how you can trim your stomach fat the natural way.
• Get moving. Just because reducing belly fat isn’t simply about sit ups doesn’t mean you shouldn’t exercise. You should do fast walking for at least 30 minutes daily. This reduces insulin resistance by as much as 15%.
• Stress less. It’s not the stress itself, it’s the response. Thousands of years ago, stress meant one thing; there was no food. When stress hormones are elevated, they are absorbed by your belly. So whatever you eat turns to fat and is stored there.
• Don’t skip out on sleep. When you don’t enough rest, your satiety center is irritable. That’s the part of your brain that drives you to sleep and to eat. If you don’t sleep, you eat more.
• Avoid added simple sugars. Cut out on things like beer, syrup, rice, dextrose, maltose and glucose. A good way to look for these on a nutritional label is to look for anything that ends in ‘ose’, which usually indicate a syrup.
Surely after reading this and putting it to work, your jeans will not only fit better but you will also reduce risks for all types of diseases.
