The dangers of not working on the accumulation of fat in the body
It seems that everyone is pregnant. Look around you and you will see both men and women with belly fat or belly fat. From the media to social media there are invitations from many so-called experts announcing ways to reduce belly fat in two weeks. Is it that easy? For African men, the belly is considered evidence of a well-off person, hence the somewhat carefree attitude towards handling accumulated fat. Therefore, a “big” man is expected to have a plump belly. The belly in men is mainly due to the consumption of alcohol and food. What about female people?
Women are more concerned because as they go through middle age, their ratio of fat to body weight tends to increase, more than men. However, women, particularly young women, know that belly fat interferes with their figure-eight frame.
But beyond the desire to preserve a good physique and appear attractive in public, many people, men and women alike, could ignore the risk posed by abdominal fat. Similarly, the frequency with which women hit their belly is observed in the hope that for each slap, their protruding bellies will contract. Interestingly, people with excess belly fat produce loud or quiet “windbreaks” that are unbearable. In short, accumulating belly fat can have serious health consequences that go beyond physical appearance.
1. Abdominal obesity.
Belly fat or abdominal fat is a combination of visceral and subcutaneous fat. It can also be called abdominal obesity, android obesity, or trunk obesity. The fat accumulated in the lower body is subcutaneous, while the fat in the abdominal area is largely visceral. The problem with abdominal fat is that it is not limited to the extra layer of padding located just below the skin (subcutaneous fat), but also includes visceral fat that is found deep in the abdomen, surrounding the internal organs. Although subcutaneous fat raises cosmetic concerns, visceral fat is linked to much more dangerous health problems.
Why the concern for women? There are reasons for alarm because abdominal fat can be pathological or physiological. “It is pathological in the sense that it is harmful to the body; and physiological in the sense that it is not harmful. He also pointed out that it could also be genetic since African women naturally have fat in the abdomen after childbirth. Especially in the Menopause, he adds, extra pounds tend to accumulate around the midsection as the proportion of fat in lean tissue changes and fat storage begins to favor the upper body on the hips and thighs.
Additionally, it was claimed that women who deliver by cesarean tend to have larger bellies than those who deliver through the vagina. Really, an expanding waistline is sometimes considered the price of getting older. On the other hand, men with low levels of testosterone have larger bellies, while women with higher levels of testosterone have thicker waists.
2. The syndrome of abdominal fat.
Obviously, abdominal fat syndrome is even more common in women today than it is in women. According to an instructor at Kayrom Lee Squash Gym and Fitness Center. “We have a lot of women and women alike who come here just because they want to reduce belly fat. We also have teenage girls who have accumulated body fat,” he said.
Our eating and drinking habits are important factors in this phenomenon. The more people eat a lot of fatty foods, the greater their tendency to have belly fat. In addition, people who lead a sedentary lifestyle with little exercise are also at risk of accumulating abdominal fat.
Fat storage in the abdomen is caused by consuming processed foods, particularly restaurant foods. Similarly, cooking oil and chocolate are rich in cholesterol. Many young women have belly fat due to their high consumption of fatty foods, chocolate, and calories. The more fat we consume, the greater the tendency to accumulate abdominal fat.
There are dangerous health risks associated with a lack of abdominal fat control beyond an uninteresting physical appearance.
Risk factors include:
1. Diabetes mellitus (type 2)
2. Fatty liver disease
3. Heart disease and hypertension.
Other serious health implications that can result from visceral abdominal fat include:
1. Breast cancer
2. Colorectal cancer
3. Gallbladder problems
4. Cardiovascular disease
5. Metabolic syndrome and other chronic diseases.
In fact, it is noted that excess abdominal fat can cause organ failure. Additionally, research has also associated abdominal fat with an increased risk of premature death as it disrupts the normal balance and hormonal function of the body.
3. How to get rid of abdominal fat.
Belly fat can be reduced to size. While many worry about how they look and worry about their tummy, they seem unwilling to give up their eating and drinking habits. For the few who take the step to work on their stomachs, they do not show the necessary commitment to the task. General exercise is key.
One fitness instructor argues that exercises such as sit-ups, aerobic dance, jogging, and cycling must be combined, over time, for any tapering effect. Aerobic exercise is very necessary because it burns more calories and removes fat from the core more easily. These specific exercises help because the body adapts to change. Reducing alcohol intake, reducing chocolate consumption, and controlling the cholesterol level of cooking oil are also important. There should be a cautious consumption of fatty foods.
People should watch what they consume, how and when they consume it to reduce belly fat.
To get rid of belly fat, in short, you must combine regular exercise and a healthy, low-calorie diet. The fitness instructor, however, emphasizes that only consistency and commitment to these exercises and a cautious lifestyle can produce the required results.
The researchers found that “people who did not exercise experienced a nearly 9 percent increase in visceral fat after six months. Regular, moderate-intensity physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day and perhaps up to 60 minutes a day would help. enormously to control weight. Pay attention should be paid to portion size, and the consumption of complex carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, and whole grains) and lean proteins should be more emphasized than simple carbohydrates such as white bread, pasta refined grain and sugary drinks. “
