Middle-age brings a lot of changes to your body, and while that’s annoying, it’s not all bad! But it is important to know how to navigate those changes in a way that boosts your energy and helps you to feel good.
Most of the middle-aged women I coach are unsatisfied with their 3 B’s: bellies, breasts and behind area. Belly fat, however, is always the #1 problem zone in losing weight out of the three.
Before we can make a change though, it is important to understand the root of the problem.
The Secret to Getting Rid of Belly Fat: The Danger It Causes to Your Body
Belly fat, also called visceral fat, is a dangerous fat in our bodies. With an excess of visceral fat, you are more likely to have high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and it’s even linked to certain cancers. The reason belly fat can cause so many problems is because it is directly related to insulin.
Now insulin helps store sugar in your cells for energy, but too much of anything can become a bad thing. When you regularly eat too much sugar, your body can become resistant to insulin. Soon, your brain may not even recognize that too much insulin is being released and tricks your body into craving more sugar when you don’t actually need it. Consequently, the vicious cycle continues!
