If you are like most guys trying to balance the pressures of life, it’s easy to let healthy eating slip; but the long term effects of neglecting good eating habits are not awesome and a deadly killer.
Belly fat is a symptom that your physiology is out of balance…and has been for awhile.
Are you noticing your mind isn’t as clear these days, maybe you are forgetful, or finding it difficult to make decisions? Belly fat is also linked to cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s and Dementia which are now being referred to as Type 3 Diabetes.
Just remember: as your waistlines grow so does your health risk!
A waistline of 40inches (101cm) means you are already in an inflamed state. A 10lb (4.5kg) weight increase will add 2cm to your waistline. Visceral belly fat effects the liver which will produce more LDL – bad cholesterol.
Did you know that more visceral fat is created when you are stressed?
Lifestyle factors that promote belly fat are lack of sleep, high stress, and high blood insulin. So make sure you are going to sleep early, meditating or winding down, and managing your insulin intake.
