Belly fat ranks as women’s number-one biggest body complaint.
Beyond making us cringe when we look in the mirror, belly fat is even more frightening on the inside, increasing our risk for heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Unfortunately, belly fat simply expands as we age.
According to medical experts, this is tied to an increased production of cortisol, the stress hormone. Combined with other hormonal factors such as low androgens, fat cells become inflamed and tissues expand to create fat where you want it least – around your middle. Called omentum, this blubbery tissue pumps out chemicals that keep you fat, creating a vicious cycle and potential health issues you can’t hide from, even with an oversized shirt.
To conquer your over-40 belly once and for all, follow this easy 4-step plan:
Due to stress, our body releases a hormone called ‘cortisol’, which leads to belly fat. Find some effective ways to relax do meditation and breathing exercises, spend time with friends, control the situation and calm down. Furthermore, you can reduce stress by avoiding surprising situations by planning and organizing.
With age comes more responsibilities and often more stress, which directly affects the belly by inflaming fat cells and causing weight gain. Studies have also shown a link between a moderate amount of alcohol consumption and less belly fat. Reduce stress where you can and also drink one glass (6 oz) of red wine a day. It’ll help you relax and also provides antioxidant-rich resveratrol, known to reduce inflammation.
Build more muscle
Fat burns two calories per pound while muscle – even at rest – burns six to 10. And when in motion, your body’s muscle can help you burn up to 15 to 20 calories per pound! Therefore, toning exercises like pushups, lunges, dumbbell curls, and overhead presses are all fabulous metabolism boosters that will boost your body’s overall fat-burning potential.
It is a mistake to believe that starvation diets are effective enough to lose a good amount of weight after crossing 40. Instead, you need to make a healthier choice to derive those vital calories in the body.
Lose weight the FAST way. Try to “fast” for 12 hours each night. Eat most of your calories during the day, when your body is naturally active and you need the calories for fuel. Then close down the kitchen at 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. the next morning, when you can start your day off fresh with a big healthy breakfast to help rein in your appetite for the rest of the day. As a bonus, you’ll probably sleep better at night.
Savor a splurge
Food should be your friend – not your enemy. Aim to eat healthy six days out of the week, and then enjoy what I call a “super splurge” on the seventh day. It helps you enjoy yourself and not feel so deprived, so you’re ready to recommit to healthy eating the following week.
