Belly fat is the most stubborn fat in the human body. Even with diet and exercise routines targeting the abs, it takes so much effort and time to finally get rid of it.
Some people are however not as successful. But what exactly causes belly fat?
Here are some possible reasons:
- Sugary Foods and Drinks
High sugar drinks like soda are very bad for your belly. Sugar filled foods too, including cake, candy, and sweetened yogurt, will lead to increased belly fat over time.
- Trans Fat
The reason why belly fat is so hard to remove is actually because it contains more trans-fats than most other parts of your body.
Junk and fast foods are notoriously high in trans-fat. Avoid them if you can reduce your intake substantially.
Alcohol is a popular beverage and when it’s consumed in moderation, it has no side effects whatsoever.
But if you’re drinking too much alcohol, you’re likely to run into major health issues including lots of belly fat.
- Sedentary Lifestyle
A lot of people these days spend so much time sitting and doing nothing. This isn’t healthy and will most likely lead to weight gain and belly fat. Even small bursts of activity like walking to work can have positive health benefits.
