The belly is one of the most problematic areas for women around the world. Even thin girls can have a "life buoy" - this is how fat in the abdomen and thighs is called. When losing weight, extra centimeters are the last to go from this part of the body. Rambler explains what contributes to the accumulation of belly fat and why it is so difficult to remove it.
Cortisol is called the stress hormone due to the fact that it is produced when a person is stressed or worried. A small amount of cortisol is good for a person: it helps to normalize blood sugar and blood pressure, and also improves memory. When too much cortisol is produced, excess weight is produced and a "cortisol belly" appears, that is, fat deposits in the abdomen. To get rid of stress-induced fat, it is necessary to normalize the nervous system, while you need to approach in a complex way: to establish a sleep schedule, eat right, play sports and be more often in the fresh air.
Fat in the body is gained when a person consumes more energy than he spends. Therefore, if your diet consists of high-calorie foods, and you lead a sedentary lifestyle, you need to reconsider your diet or exercise. Try to calculate how many calories you eat per day and calculate your daily value. It depends on your gender, age, height, purpose, activity and current weight. Accordingly, the more activity, the more calories you can consume per day. When your weight decreases, you need to cut back on the calorie intake.
Lack of physical activity
The stomach also has muscles that need to be constantly kept in good shape. If you do not do this, you will accumulate fat, and the belly itself will be flabby. In order to keep the muscles in good shape, it is enough to walk more and do minimal physical exercises for 20 minutes a day.
