"Veggies" that burn "Belly Fat"


So the question for today is this . . . why is "belly fat" so "hard" to get rid of???


Well . . . the problem is this . . .


We have 2 kinds of "fat" . . . "visceral" . . . which is the dangerous interior fat . . . and "subcutaneous" . . . which is surface fat


And the only place the body carries "visceral fat" . . . is in our "BELLY"


So not only are we dealing with "subcutaneous fat" (surface fat) all over our body and "BELLY" . . . we also have to deal with the dangerous "visceral fat" IN our belly.


And that's why it's sooooooooo hard to get rid of our "INNER TUBE OF FAT"!!!


Okay . . . so why is "visceral fat" so dangerous to the body and our health???


Well . . . for one . . . this kind of "fat" wraps itself around our "organs".


And "visceral fat" is related to the "release" of "proteins" and "hormones" that can cause "inflammation".


This "inflammation" . . . can then "damage" our "arteries . . . enter the "liver" . . . and "negatively" affect how the body "breaks down" . . . sugar and fats.


Okay . . . so let's better understand . . .


As we know . . . "fat" gets stored when we consume "too many" EMPTY calorie foods . . . and have "too little" physical activity in our diet and life.


In "women" . . . as we age . . . the body tends to change where it stores "fat". Especially after "menopause" . . . and this is due to our "muscle mass" depleting" . . . and our "fat mass" increasing.


And unfortunately . . . the older that we get . . . the more likely we are to develop more "visceral fat" in the "belly".


Now with "men" . . . age and genetics plays a major role in developing "visceral fat".


And unfortunately . . . for you . . . drinking "ALCOHOL" can also lead to this dangerous "belly fat".


Okay . . . so what are the "health risks" of too much "visceral fat"???


Well . . . having "visceral fat" in the "belly" . . . is a sign of "metabolic syndrome" . . . which is a collection of disorders such as . . .


High blood pressure

Obesity

High cholesterol

Insulin resistance

Stroke

Heart disease

Type 2 diabetes

Dementia

Cancer

Asthma

Liver disease

Gallbladder disease

Gout

Infertility

Lower back pain

And Osteoarthritis


And with that being said . . . what will help "REDUCE" visceral fat from our "belly"???


Well . . . some of the best "veggies" to help "reduce" this fat are . . .


Broccoli

Cauliflower

Brussel sprouts

Kale

Spinach

Collard greens

And Cabbage


Why you ask???


Well . . . they're loaded with special "phytonutrients" . . . and "phytonutrients" are considered . . . "anti-obesity agents" . . . that can "reduce" body weight and "fat tissue" such as "visceral fat".


And as a bonus . . . "phytonutrients" have "antioxidant properties" that can help "prevent" damage to "cells" throughout the body. They've even been known to "reduce" the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.


So if you want to be successful with your "New Year's Resolution" of a healthier YOU . . .


Get your "GREEN" on today.


And tomorrow . . . we'll talk about another one of my little "SECRETS" to losing weight.
