Try these three simple “bella bellies” goals to improve your health and well-being.
Belly fat is one of the worst fats to have on your body. Belly fat functions differently than other fats in the body, which, frankly, is down-right creepy. Why? Belly fat contains more blood vessels and therefore a greater blood supply. Also, belly fat contains more receptors in it, making it more responsive to hormonal shifts, especially a shift in the stress hormone cortisol. Furthermore…Statistically belly fat makes women more vulnerable to cardiovascular dysfunction/failure (the leading cause of death for women in the United States), type 2 diabetes, depression and more.
Sometimes embracing a healthy life-style, one which promotes a flat abdomen, is overwhelming.
Goal # 1) Increase your healthy fat intake to reduce your belly fat and stress.
Healthy, omega fats help calm the nervous system. Studies have shown that eating omega-3 fats reduces the output of the stress hormone, epinephrine/adrenaline. Studies have further shown that men and women who have a healthy balance of omega-3 fats (supplement or food form) have reduced belly circumference. If you are pregnant, nursing or have other health conditions, speak with your care provider for his/her recommendation for supplements.
