A Little Bit Of Abdominal Fat...
It’s a fine balancing act, however, as storing too much fat around our abdomen can be dangerous and has been linked to some pretty nasty health problems.
Some of the culprits are fairly obvious, especially when eating a lot of processed foods and not doing much exercise. However, there can be some surprising reasons behind belly fat and these can come into play even if we think we’re living a healthy lifestyle. Here are some of the factors that can make us more likely to store fat in our abdominal areas.
#1: Eating Too Much Sugar & Trans Fat
Trans fats are another big no-no if we want to avoid belly fat. These are pretty much the worst type of fat we can consume as they promote inflammation and according to studies on animals, they also encourage more fat to be stored on and around our abdomens.
#2: Alcohol Intake
#3: A Low Protein Diet
#4: Not Eating Enough Fiber
#5: Being Scared Of Eating Fat
Monounsaturated fats are one of the good fats and are important for satiety. They help us to feel fuller for longer so we’re less likely to make unhealthy food choices that increase our potential for storing belly fat.
#6: Imbalance of Bacteria In Our Guts
#8: Not Sleeping Well
A large scale study of more than 68,000 women found that those who were sleeping less than 5 hours per night gained lot more weight compared to those who slept 7 hours or more.
#9: Not Getting Enough Magnesium
#10: Our Exercise Is Not Intense Enough
