TIPS TO OVERCOME ABDOMINAL OBESITY
1) EAT BREAKFAST
It might seem counterproductive to eat if you're trying to lose weight, but studies show that eating breakfast within an hour of waking up keeps your insulin levels steadier and your LDL cholesterol levels lower
2) TAKE AT LEAST 7 HRS OF SOUND SLEEP
Research indicates that the secretion of cortisol (a hormone your body produces during times of stress) is correlated with an increase in belly fat.
3) AIM TO TAKE 10,000 STEPS A DAY
In one study where men reduced their daily steps from about 10, 000 to less than 1, 500 (without changing their diet), their visceral (belly) fat increased by 7% after just 2 weeks
4) SWITCH OUT REFINED GRAINS FOR WHOLE GRAINS
In a scientific study, people who ate all whole grains (in addition to five servings of fruits and vegetables, three servings of low-fat dairy, and two servings of lean meat, fish, or poultry) lost more belly fat than another group that ate the same diet, but with all refined grains
5) DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Studies suggest that consistently drinking water throughout the day can lead to a more active metabolism, regardless of dieting
6) EAT GOOD FATS
Studies suggest that a diet with a higher ratio of monounsaturated fats like avocados, nuts, seeds, soybeans, and chocolate — can prevent the accumulation of belly fat
7) AVOID TRANS FATS (in margarines, crackers, cookies, or anything made with partially hydrogenated oils)
Seem to result in more fat being deposited in the abdomen.
8) EAT MORE OF SOLUBLE FIBER (such as that found in apples, oats, and cherries)
Lowers insulin levels which can speed up the burning of visceral belly fat.
