Welcome to Day 11 of the New Year, New You Weight Loss Challegne!
One of the most common questions in weight loss, is how to get rid of the belly fat.
The answer is simple. You get rid of belly fat through a clean diet and exercise.
The one thing to understand is that not all body fat is the same. Meaning that where you carry fat matters.
If you carry weight around your abdomen, the health risks are greater than carrying weight in the hips and thighs area.
fat is stored deep under the surface and surrounds the liver and
abdominal organs. This stored fat is linked to a higer risk of diabetes
and insulin resistance.
The best way to avoid dangerous fat around
the belly is to cut out or cut back on food and drinks containing
calories from fructose such as energy drinks, sodas, sports drinks and
Sugary processed foods like doughnuts, cereal, candy and muffins also fall into that catergory.
Cutting out sugary food and drinks will lead to a slimmer waistline and healthier you.
If you are craving something sweet, reach for a piece of fruit instead.
Lightly flavoring your water with fresh fruits and herbs is a great way to quench your thirst without all the added calories and fructose.
Do you keep fresh fruit on hand?
