4 Excellent Tips to Lose Belly Fat and Become Truly Healthy and Happy

Everyone in the world wants to lose weight. Modern day research has proved that obesity is bad for health. Hence, all are after losing weight in whatever way they know.

But have you ever considered how fat is distributed in our body, what are fat cells, are they really good or bad and so on? Here are some interesting facts:

  • We have a set number of fat cells in our body which doesn’t change with dieting or exercise. We can only change the size of these fat cells. Procedures like liposuction take some of these cells out of the body.
  • Fat distribution in our body is of three types – visceral or belly fat, subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin) and intramuscular fat (fat interspersed in skeletal muscles). Out of these, belly fat is the most dangerous because it’s strongly associated to diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and many other serious diseases.
  • Belly (visceral) fat secretes higher amounts of adipokines (compounds that trigger inflammation) and more fatty acids in the bloodstreams, while subcutaneous and intramuscular fat cells keep fatty acids within themselves but don’t secrete them in the blood.
  • Fat around hips and legs is more passive and secrets fewer chemicals in the circulation.

In short, what you should make your priority is the reduction of belly fat than the fat anywhere else in your body, although losing fat from anywhere in the body is good for your health. In this regard, the procedure named ultra-cavitation can be considered because it helps move the fat from one spot to another in the body though it doesn’t help reduce it. Consult your doctor and read ultra cavitation reviews before trying.

Although belly fat is quite dangerous, it’s equally difficult to remove. However, the good news is that there are several things that can be tried to remove this stubborn fat. Here are a few.

1. Include a Lot of Soluble Fiber in Your Diet

Soluble fiber has an amazing ability to absorb water and create a mass that slows down food while passing through the digestive tract. This makes you feel full for longer and you eat less. What’s more, it also reduces belly fat. Shirataki noodles, blackberries, avocados, Brussels sprouts, flaxseeds and legumes are some excellent sources of soluble fiber.

2. Stay Away from Trans Fats

Trans fats are associated to abdominal fat gain, insulin resistance, heart disease and inflammation. It is made by adding hydrogen to unsaturated fats, like soybean oil. Trans fats occur in some spreads and margarines and also usually in packaged foods. Read ingredient labels carefully. Trans fats are usually listed as partially hydrogenated fats.

3. Reduce the Intake of Sugars and Starches

When you cut down sugars and starches, your hunger level reduces and you eat much fewer calories. This also makes your body burn stored fat for energy rather than carbs. Cutting down carbs has another benefit of lowering insulin levels, in turn making your kidneys to remove excess sodium and water which in turn reduces unnecessary water weight and bloat. It’s not impossible to lose up to 10 pounds by eating this way, just within the first week, both water weight and body fat. Kpop diet plan is an amazing example of fat loss by avoiding starches and sugars and eating more fresh fruits, vegetables, protein and fiber.

4. Include Fat, Protein and Vegetables in Your Diet

Consider including a fat source, a protein source and low-carb vegetables in each of your meals. This will automatically make your carb intake come in the recommended range of 20-50 grams per day.

Your fat sources should be avocado oil, coconut oil and olive oil, protein sources should be chicken, pork, lamb, fish like shrimp, trout and salmon and eggs, and low-carb veggies should include spinach, kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumber, lettuce and so on.

Have an aim of becoming healthy by following these tips instead of just losing weight. That will make you truly healthy and happy.
