Default Winning Strategies to Shed Unwanted Belly Fat

Some tips on nutrition and exercise to lose belly fat, full article here. http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fit...belly-fat.aspx



Quote:
When it comes to shedding stubborn belly fat, exercise alone is not the answer. The master key really lies with what you eat, and perhaps more importantly when you eat, followed closely by the type of exercise you engage in.lean

Scheduling your eating to a narrow window of time each day is the version of intermittent fasting I recommend for those struggling with insulin resistance and excess body weight.

Other healthy lifestyle habits such as sleep and stress reduction are also helpful, as they help keep your cortisol levels low. Cortisol is a stress hormone that, when elevated, depletes lean muscle and holds on to fat in the abdominal region.1

It’s important to realize that the benefits of reducing belly fat go far beyond aesthetics. Abdominal fat—the visceral fat that deposits around your internal organs—releases proteins and hormones that can cause inflammation, which in turn can damage arteries and enter your liver, affecting how your body breaks down sugars and fats.

The chronic inflammation associated with visceral fat accumulation can trigger a wide range of systemic diseases linked with metabolic syndrome.

This is why carrying extra weight around your middle is linked to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and other chronic diseases, and why measuring your waist-to-hip ratio is actually a better indicator of your health status than body mass index (BMI).

Intermittent fasting is what I have done for decades. The kind the Mercola writes about. Only, what is this exercise thing? That's too much trouble.

It is rare that I have anything more for breakfast than coffee. Industrial strength. No sugar. No milk or cream.

Yet as I age, it is more difficult to keep that belly fat down.

Fasting is a tremendous kick start to your metabolism. However, I would say that excluding exercise from any health program is like trying to fly without an airplane - it is just plain doomed to fail.
