What Causes Belly Fat? 5 Belly Fat Causes

Too Much Sugar

Sugar is found in many of the foods that you eat daily. From breakfast cereals, to coffee drinks, to protein bars, to energy drinks, more items in your daily diet contain sugar than you’re aware of. All of these sugar calories add up quickly and translate into many pounds gained. Make it a habit to read the ingredients and the sugar count in the foods you are eating. Pay special attention to breakfast items, yogurts, protein bars and any item that is packaged. Avoid eating foods that causes of belly fat and contain added sugars as a part of your daily diet.

Daily Dessert

There used to be a time and place when desserts were reserved for Sunday evenings and special occasions. Not anymore! These days dessert has become a daily occurrence. Much like the first belly fat habit, having dessert is another form of having too much sugar and all those sugar calories rapidly turn to fat. Forget eating dessert every day as it is one of the causes of belly fat. Save desserts for special occasions, and stick with fresh fruit as your daily after-meal sweet.

Unhealthy Snacking

In recent years snacking has been named one of the best ways to maintain your metabolism. In order to burn fat all day long, there is some truth to eating small, high protein-high fiber meals frequently but for the most part all of this snacking has done nothing better than make us fatter. It is the main cause of belly fat. Most snack items are crunchy and salty, 2 qualities that you’ll rarely find in a healthy snack. They also contain loads of simple carbohydrates and sugar. In order to avoid belly fat you’re better off avoiding all traditional snack foods and quit the habit of ‘snacking’ entirely. If you’re hungry between meals then eat a small amount of protein and fiber, such as a hard boiled egg with cucumber, or a packet of tuna with celery.

Daily Alcohol

Having a drink with dinner can quickly become a fast and steady unhealthy habit. All those alcohol calories are basically sugar and all that sugar is going straight to your belly. It’s nearly impossible to lose fat on a day when you’re drinking alcohol. Alcohol = fat storage mode. Once you’ve allocated alcohol to cheat days and special occasions, you’ll lose fat quicker and easier than ever before.

Lack of Exercise

This one is kind of a no-brainer, right? If you aren’t moving your body in a consistent, challenging way then you’re going to store body fat, plain and simple. An effective, sustainable and invigorating exercise routine is the ticket you need to dump that fat for good.

5 vientre hábitos de grasa:

-Demasiado Mucho Azúcar: El azúcar se encuentra en muchos de los alimentos que usted come todos los días. A partir de los cereales del desayuno, a las bebidas de café, a las barras de proteína, a las bebidas energéticas, más elementos en su dieta diaria contienen azúcar que usted es consciente de. Todas estas calorías de azúcar se suman rápidamente y se traducen en muchas libras ganadas.

Que sea un hábito de leer los ingredientes y el recuento de azúcar en los alimentos que están comiendo. Preste especial atención a los productos para el desayuno, yogures, barras de proteína y cualquier elemento que se empaqueta. Evite comer alimentos que contienen azúcares añadidos como parte de su dieta diaria.

Postre -Daily: Solía ​​haber un tiempo y lugar cuando postres estaban reservados para los domingos por la noche y ocasiones especiales. ¡No más! Estos días el postre se ha convertido en un hecho cotidiano. Al igual que el primer hábito grasa del vientre, con el postre es otra forma de tener demasiada azúcar y todas esas calorías de azúcar convertirse rápidamente en grasa.

Olvídese de comer postre todos los días. Ahorre postres para ocasiones especiales, y seguir con fruta fresca como su diario después de comer dulce.

Insalubres Bocadillos: En los últimos años los bocadillos ha sido nombrada una de las mejores maneras de mantener su metabolismo. Con el fin de quemar grasa todo el día, hay algo de verdad en comer pequeñas comidas fibra, rica en proteínas de alta frecuencia, pero en su mayor parte de todo esto picoteo ha hecho nada mejor que hacernos más gordos.

La mayoría de los bocadillos son crujientes y salada, 2 cualidades que usted rara vez se encuentran en una merienda saludable. También contienen un montón de carbohidratos y azúcar. Con el fin de evitar la grasa del vientre es mejor evitar los bocadillos alltraditional y dejar el hábito de 'picar' completo. Si tienes hambre entre comidas y luego comer una pequeña cantidad de proteínas y fibra, como un huevo duro con pepino, o un paquete de atún con apio.

Alcohol -Daily: Tener una bebida con la cena puede convertirse rápidamente en un hábito poco saludable rápido y estable. Todas esas calorías del alcohol son básicamente azúcar y todo lo que el azúcar se va directamente a su vientre. Es casi imposible para perder grasa en un día en que usted está bebiendo alcohol. El alcohol = el modo de almacenamiento de grasa. Una vez que ha asignado el alcohol para hacer trampa día y ocasiones especiales, si no se pierden grasa más rápido y más fácil que nunca.

-Falta De ejercicio: Éste es una especie de obviedad, ¿verdad? Si no se está moviendo su cuerpo de una manera consistente, un reto entonces usted va a almacenar la grasa corporal, así de simple. Una rutina efectiva, sostenible y vigorizante ejercicio es el boleto que usted necesita para volcar esa grasa para siempre.
