Understanding Body Fat

 

The most frustrating fat our body accumulates is without a doubt our belly fat, the best method to lose your belly fat is to stat living a brand new lifestyle. Your body fat accumulates as time goes by for most people, many of us are too busy to notice until our clothes are not fitting us any longer. Instead of going shopping for a brand new wardrobe one size larger, we really should be learning how to adjust our life to rid ourselves of our belly fat? What makes this frustrating for people is there is not just one thing contributing to our belly fat, for most people the answer is a combination of many things. Let’s start with the obvious, what are you putting into your tummy which is making you fat?

 

High Sugar Foods & Beverages

 

These foods and beverages are the first place you should look to adjust to your new diet plan, checking the ingredients on what you are purchasing will help you to avoid so many of these foods and beverages. Any product which is high in sugar and corn syrup are foods which will sabotage your diet plan, many of the products we believe are healthy for us can be high in sugar. Most of us purchase canned fruit and cereal thinking these are healthy for you, if you are not checking the ingredients there can be hidden sugar in these two products. Are you eating low-fat yogurt thinking you are doing something good for your body, well some of the low-fat yogurts have added sugars for flavor?

    Hello there:)
    Very interesting and helpful article. I didn’t know that even the vitamin water had sugar and i am surprised how may hidden traps are 🙂
    Protein is very important as I understand and I would ask something. Is it better to eat protein in the morning or for dinner?
    I know pasta is not very good for our diet but I thought actually if you eat it in small quantity is healthy…I don’t know. ..
    Thanks for a good read 🙂

      Thank You Christina,

      Actually you have some protein at every meal and snack from morning until bedtime, protein fills you up and you will eat less which is good for your weight loss plan.

      Really you should consider Quinoa instead of regular pasta, it has protein and low carbs which is much better for you than wheat pasta. If you prefer another past which is healthier start buying brown rice pasta.

    I read somewhere that low-fat foods usually have extra sugar added to compensate for the loss of flavour – is that true? As a vegetarian I’m constantly being asked if I’m getting enough protein and my standard answer these days is “yes, I am. Are you?” Great to see this mentioned as it’s something many people overlook!

      Thank You

      I really am against anyone eating low-fat and diet food products, I feel they are really unhealthy for us since they are loaded with sugar substitutes which may be even worse than regular sugar.
