5 Habits that cause belly fat
5 habits that cause belly fat
nothing quite as frustrating as that stubborn belly fat that sits
around your waist, makes your pants tight and destroys your confidence.
If you have belly fat to lose, then chances are great that you are
harboring one or more of these 5 habits that cause belly fat.
Read the 5 Belly Fat Habits below to identify the reason why your stubborn belly fat won’t budge…
Belly Fat Habit #1: Too Much Sugar
Sugar is found in many of the foods that you eat daily. From breakfast
cereals, to coffee drinks, to protein bars, to energy drinks…more items
in your daily diet contain sugar than you’re aware of. All of these
sugar calories add up quickly and translate into many pounds gained.
Make it a habit to read the ingredients and the sugar count in the
foods you are eating. Pay special attention to breakfast items, yogurts,
protein bars and any item that is packaged. Avoid eating foods that
contain added sugars as a part of your daily diet.
Belly Fat Habit #2: Daily Dessert
There used to be a time and place when desserts were reserved for
Sunday evenings and special occasions. Not anymore! These days dessert
has become a daily occurrence. Much like the first Belly Fat Habit,
having dessert is another form of having too much sugar, and all those
sugar calories rapidly turn to fat.
Forget eating dessert
everyday. Save desserts for cheat days and special occasions, and stick
with fresh fruit as your daily after-meal sweet.
Belly Fat Habit #3: Bad Snacking
In recent years snacking has been named one of the best ways to
maintain your metabolism, in order to burn fat all day long; and while
there is some truth to eating small, high protein-high fiber meals
frequently, for the most part all of this snacking has done nothing
better than make us fat.
Most snack items are crunchy and
salty, 2 qualities that you’ll rarely find in a healthy snack, and
contain loads of simple carbohydrates and, you guessed it, more sugar.
In order to avoid belly fat you’re better off avoiding all traditional
snack foods, and to fall out of the habit of ‘snacking’ entirely.
If you’re hungry between meals then eat a small amount of protein and
fiber, such as a hard boiled egg with cucumber, or a packet of tuna with
Belly Fat Habit #4: Daily Alcohol
Having that drink with dinner (or two, or three…) can quickly become a
fast and steady habit. It’s easy to justify the drinks because you had a
long, hard day and you deserve it. The alcohol takes your mind off of
your troubles and loosens you up for a good time. However, all those
alcohol calories are basically sugar, and all that sugar is going
straight to your belly. (Beer belly, anyone?)
daily alcohol habit is tough, I’ll give you that, however it may
motivate you to know that it’s nearly impossible to lose fat on a day
when you’re drinking alcohol. Alcohol = fat storage mode. Also it’s
great to know that once you’ve allocated alcohol to cheat days and
special occasions, you’ll lose fat quicker and easier than ever before.
Belly Fat Habit #5: Lack of Exercise
This one is kind of a no-brainer, right? If you aren’t moving your body
in a consistent, challenging way then you’re going to store body fat.
Plain and simple. An effective, invigorating exercise routine is the
ticket you need to dump that fat for good.
