4 Belly Fat Culprits That You Need to Eliminate!
Have you ever wondered what it's like to wear a crop top without having those love handles steal the show from you? If your belly fat resists disappearing even after proper diet and exercise, then there could be some other reasons you are still getting those extra curves!
- Regularly drinking carbonated drinks
Research shows that people who consume about one to two cans of soda every day are more likely to increase their waistline five times faster than people who barely drink carbonated beverages in a week. The high sugar content in sodas tends to trigger one’s food cravings, allowing you to eat more than usual during mealtimes.
- Eating late at night
While the body naturally burns fat during sleep, it may not do so efficiently if you hit the sacks with a full stomach. Not only does this cause body fat, but it also puts one at risk for getting indigestion or acid reflux. To avoid this, eating smaller portions of meals at night and waiting three hours before lying down is highly recommended.
- The concept of “comfort food”
Some people cope with extreme emotions like anger or sadness by binge-eating — and some may do so unconsciously. Think twice about consuming an entire tub of ice cream on your next PMS attack as emotional eating may not necessarily make you feel better. What you are most likely to get, instead, is that extra belly fat. It may be much better to vent out those emotions by talking to a friend or taking long walks.
- Giving in to low-fat foods too often
You may be led into thinking that consuming low-fat foods regularly can decrease your risk of storing fat in your belly. However, a lot of manufacturers often put more sugar to these low-fat products. This means that consuming a lot of them may even increase your chances of adding inches to your waistline.
