A bulging midsection is not just the result of genetics and your father and mother’s body type! It is also the result of several lifestyle choices that you make. You are aware of some of these choices and you may not be aware of some of them. But the net result may be the same-a bulging midsection.
Take a look at some of the areas of your life so you can make effective changes that will help reduce your belly fat!
Work. Are you seated from eight in the morning until five in the afternoon? How’s your stress levels at work? Are you always thinking about a lot of things that you barely have time for yourself? If you are working so much, chances are, your body is releasing unhealthy doses of cortisol that undermines testosterone levels and increasing your body’s tendency to store fats instead of burning them.
Eating habits. If you are working a lot, you tend to eat anything that is available-most often, fast food! Beware of fast food-especially the deep fried stuff such as French fries and your regular burger. You may not know it but you are packing in lots and lots of empty calories that will accumulate in your belly. If you want to reduce your belly fat, you will need to overhaul your eating habits!
Sleeping Habits. How many hours of sleep do you get every evening? Do you get at least six hours of sleep? If you don’t, then you do not have to wonder why you are always sluggish, sleepy and always lacking energy! Get ample sleep in order for you to become effective at the things you do! It will also help your body rest and prevent the accumulation of fats!
Mindset and motivation. How’s your motivation lately? Can you say that you are pursuing your passions? When you are at work, do you tend to complain more or do you tend to encourage other workers? Your mindset dictates the kind of lifestyle you will live out and your lifestyle will determine your levels of joy, happiness and contentment.
Be happy! Being happy brings a lot of benefits to your life. And it is not just to your emotions. Most of the time, if you are happy, you are also healthier and you tend to help brighten up the world, even if just a little! A gloomy mood can curdle milk and darken the mood of other people around you.
Lifestyle is the key to a better health and fitness situation! If you have a big belly and you want to reduce it, take a look at your lifestyle. When you do, you will be weeks away from a better and healthier you!
