- Abdominal fat poses a serious health risk
- Here are three simple ways to tackle this problem for good
People who carry a lot of weight in their midsection, are prone to serious health problems that could be deadly in the long run. They carry the risk of heart diseases, liver diseases among others.
Here are three simple ways to get rid of it.
1. Be mindful of what you eat:
It’s important to be mindful of what you are eating. Opt for good, nutritious and healthy food. Ensure that you have a balanced meal that is high in proteins, omega fats, and lean fats. You can on occasions, have a cheat meal. But by and large, stick and be very deliberate and focussed on your diet.
2. Sleep well:
It goes without saying, a well-rested sleep is good for mind and body. An adult is expected to get 7-8 hours of good sleep. When you skimp on your sleep, your hormones get affected, especially fat-regulating hormones called leptin and grhelin.
The best way to lose weight is to have a healthy balance between your food and exercise. Exercise is a must. It needs to be a disciplined lifestyle. Incorporate a daily cardio workout – be it walking, swimming, cycling or jogging. Ensure that you walk for at least 30-45 minutes a day. Also, it’s a good idea to switch up your exercise, so you don’t get bored. Also include weight resistance training as well.
