3 Best Reasons Why You Should Lose Belly Fat

Jun 5, 2008
No one likes having excessive belly fat. But the excess fat clinging to your stomach affects far more than the size of your jeans. The frightening truth is that belly fat is more dangerous than than excess fat on your thighs and butt.

Having additional belly fat forces the liver to work overtime releasing fatty acids. This in turn causes your cholesterol level to increase. The cholesterol, in turn, increases your chances of developing diabetes, heart, disease, and high blood pressure.

Belly fat can be stubborn as we all know, so you may have to trick the body a little in order to get rid of it. You see the body stores fat as energy for the future, it does this to protect itself against starvation.

Losing belly fat can be difficult due to the reason it is produced in the first place. In actuality, belly fat is your body's natural way of protecting itself from starvation. It is simply stored energy. Although this is a natural biological function, as mentioned previously, too much of it becomes detrimental to your health.

Reason number two, having belly fat increases your risk of heart disease. Once again as your cholesterol levels increase there are many knock on effects which puts your health in danger. The worst of all is that visceral fat can be located deep in the abdomen which then surrounds your vital organs.

That's where interval training comes in to play. Interval training means switching up your exercise training or short breaks between exercise periods to "shock" your body into using its stored energy and preventing it from reaching a plateau.

Although the majority of people are motivated to lose their belly fat to look better in a swimsuit or fit into their "skinny" jeans, losing belly fat is about far more than how you look. It's also about how the rest of your body's organs, and indeed your body as a whole, function. Fat around your thighs can cause stress on your leg muscles, true, but belly fat can literally suffocate your vital organs.
