WHAT IS BELLY FAT:
Belly fat is a more significant issue than the aesthetics of squeezing into last year’s skinny jeans – it’s an indicator of your overall health. There are two types of fat that sit around our midriffs. One is the subcutaneous fat – the fat under your skin that is distributed all over your body. It’s what is referred to when asked if you can pinch more than an inch. The other type is visceral fat, which surrounds all our vital organs such as the liver, pancreas and intestines.
Visceral fat is said to be more “metabolically active” than subcutaneous fat, and researchers have found that the stress hormone cortisol significantly increases its storage. It has been strongly linked to both insulin resistance, inflammation and metabolic disease, even in those who have a normal BMI. But although it is considered more dangerous to our health, the good news is that it is easier to shift than subcutaneous fat.
Use this calorie calculator to find out how many calories you need to consume to maintain your weight. Then reduce that figure by 500 calories as explained in the diet portion size guide to start losing weight and belly fat quite quickly.
They aimed for a daily intake of,
• Three fist-sized servings of carbohydrates
• Two palm-sized servings of lean protein
• Two cupped handfuls of vegetables or salad
• Two fist-sized servings of fruit
• Two servings of fat or oil covering the tip of the thumb
But the clear winner was our group the diet-control group. This group lost an average of 3.7kg each over just six weeks. Their average waistline reduced by 5cm. Dexa scan readings showed an average of 10 per cent of their existing body fat being lost, and an impressive 20 per cent reduction in the visceral fat inside the abdomen. This group lost overall body fat as well as abdominal fat, and saw improvements in their other general health parameters too. Including resting heart rate, blood glucose, blood lipids, weight and blood pressure.
