Lose weight advertisements are everywhere. Advertisers have compelling commercials to sell you on why their product is the best. Lose weight claims are subtle enough to stimulate the imagination and create the illusion of benefits in your mind.
Have you ever contemplated buying an exercise machine?
Have you ever talked to your doctor about the benefits of slimming pills?
Have ever walked into a health shop and asked for information about how to lose weight, fat-burning, or muscle-building supplements?
Have you ever bought the latest best-selling diet book?
Have you ever done a Google search or watched TV and listened to a fitness guru talk about an amazing new diet that helps you to lose weight in record time.
Have you ever surfed the web for information about diet, nutrition, or weight loss programs?
If you have done any of the above then the chances are you’ve been told many lies!
Unfortunately, if you are looking for honest, accurate information about nutrition and how to lose weight effectively, you will find that it is harder to come by than ever before, and nearly everyone has been misled at one time or another. This may of course be that the so-called guru thinks that the information they are giving is correct and may have been misled themselves. But to ensure that you are receiving or giving accurate and honest information you need to look very carefully at the scientific evidence surrounding the claims.
Most regular dieters will be familiar with the problem of belly fat. Belly fat has become the dieter’s curse. No matter how easily you are able to lose weight, undoubtedly you will be left with the problem of stubborn belly fat. This is particularly frustrating for women who are looking for that slim-line figure, but no matter how hard you try the problem persists.
Women are born with more fat cells than men, mainly for the purpose of protecting and nourishing our babies. So the removal of that stubborn midsection fat can actually be a lot harder for women than for men
One of the most important principles in any program you may follow to lose weight is to be able to see visible results quickly. Getting rid of that bloated belly can be a great incentive for most people. Better to get rid of it from the start than be left with it at the end of your diet
So what is the cause of this bloated belly?
Ingesting foods your body is intolerant to can cause inflammation and this is one of the main reasons for a bloated belly, especially if that belly is off the potbelly variety. Inflammation and excess gas caused by undigested food particles can be a major cause of both inflammation and a bloated belly. Most people who have tried to lose weight will be familiar with the term water retention and although this can often be more prevalent in the ankles and other joints it can also be a contributory factor for a swollen midsection. For weight loss to take place it is advisable to address these underlying intolerances first especially if you want to a flat belly not a fat belly as a result.
