Throughout or lives we are always worried about something, and often as women and men we worry about our midsections, our bellies so to speak. We have great disdain for the flabby and large, and great envy for the slim and trim. It is not only our vanity that is important here, but a trim waistline is also very important for our healthy. For those of your entering menopause this is going to be an even bigger issue in your life, since the body changes whether we like it or not.
According to certain specialists, one of the main reasons that it is difficult to lose belly fat is because of how they are related to our hormones. When a woman hits menopause, she experiences a drop in a hormone called estrogen. This drop changes where her body will store fat and will make her more prone to storing fat in her belly region.
Of the many things being discussed on how we can burn fat and especially the fat around our mid section, here is a list from a popular doctor that includes the following.
Whether we like or loathe exercise, it is a vital part of losing weight and belly fat. One does not need to engage in crunches and high intensity workouts, but instead would benefit from trying things like yoga, dancing and walking
vigorously which are far more sustainable.
2. Avoid hydrogenated oils.
Many processed foods are high in oils that are called hydrogenated oils. It is very important to read the packaging on the chips and goodies that you are buying and look for food items that do not have hydrogenated oils. Hydrogenated oils (or trans fats) are thought to be in part responsible for the movement of fat from other parts of your body to your belly.
3. Eat food that burns fat.
Certain foods exist in this world that have properties that can increase the bodies ability to burn fat. These foods include things like turmeric, green tea, coffee (just 1 a day though!) and healthy fats from olive oil, avocados and nuts and seeds.
