Having a grabbable gut can be dangerous, as those who are not overweight, but carry extra fat around their midsections, have a greater chance of running into health problems than any other group. Perhaps one reason for this increased risk is the toxic fat that is stored in the abdomen. This fatty tissue makes increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, each of which can lead to premature death. If you have a grabbable gut, it is important that you do what you can to lose this extra fat to give yourself a much better chance of living a long and productive life.
Fat around the abdomen is an indicator that you are living an unhealthy lifestyle and need to make some changes. In fact, your waist measurement is a better predictor than your body mass index of potential health problems. The chemicals that are stored in this fat are likely to blame for these health problems. The more fat you have, the more chemicals are released into your body. For years, it was believed that fat simply stored energy, but this new research suggests that body fat means much more and can be deadly.
Change Your Diet
Losing weight in your midsection is the best way to get your health back on track. The less fat you have around your midsection, the fewer the chemicals you will have end up in your body. You can start eliminating your grabbable gut by avoiding sugary drinks, watching the types of fats that you eat and reducing your portion sizes. Eating the wrong foods puts unneeded calories into your body, which are then stored as fat.
Get Some Exercise
Getting exercise is also important, as being active burns fat from your body. Burning more calories than you consume creates a calorie deficit. Since your body can no longer rely on your diet to provide the calories needed to function, it starts to eat away at your body's fat for energy. Once this process starts, you will begin losing weight. You will eventually notice that you do not have as much fat stored around your waist, as your body uses it as energy. Make use of the exercise equipment that you have sitting in the basement, as it could extend your life.
The good news for those with a grabbable gut is that they have the ability to improve their health.. By following a healthier diet and getting the proper exercise, you can lose mass around your waist and improve your chances of living a long and healthy life. Even 30 minutes of a moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as walking or gardening, five days per week can help you to shed belly fat as long as you reduce your daily calorie intake.
