I’M going to share with you today the 5 factors that contribute to excess belly, fat exercise, insulin, stress protein and menopause and, more importantly, what you can do about it. So, you can lose weight around the belly area and feel really good about yourself. When I was young, I was teased for being fat, and I believed that my whole self-worth was attached to the size and shape of my body.
My mum used to say to me that I wasn’t fat. I was just soft, and then I started believing that soft equates to fat. My mindset was set and nothing could change it and, like many girls in my position, I starved myself lost a lot of weight, and then I decided that I was now okay, because I wasn’t fat anymore and that led to sickness and a very unhealthy obsession with My body, but here’s the thing, no matter how much weight I lost my belly would still be big, but not every day.
Just some days and I’d say to myself, I literally haven’t eaten anything and if the goal is to burn more calories and I consume what’s going on, I became determined to find the answer, and I’m going to share with you today what I’ve found and what works For me, the first thing, though I urge you to stop beating up on yourself. If that’s, what you’re doing, and you’re doing the best you can a little bit of belly fat is normal, and it’s okay and later on, I’m going to show you exactly how hard it is and the extreme lengths you need to go to to get a flat Stomach with a six-pack when you’re over 50, and you’re not going to believe how hard it is, the first biggest mistake to losing belly fat is we’re not exercising properly.
The mistake we make is we don’t exercise enough, and we don’t vary our exercise routines enough to get good results and, as I always say, we don’t have to be athletes now we’re over 50, but we do need to do some form of physical exercise every single Day we can’t spot reduce our, so the solution is a combination of cardio and high-intensity interval, training to increase our heart rate and our strength, training to build muscle.
We need to work on our core strength and create a well-developed, abdominal muscle, as opposed to a flabby belly that hangs forward because of a lack of muscle tone, making our stomachs look bigger than they actually are.
This diagram here is the perfect example to help you understand: that represents. A normal abdominal wall with toned muscles B is a normal abdominal wall with toned muscles and a layer of fat see is an abdominal wall with a little tone, but no extra fat. This is where you can see belly fat hangs out despite the lack of fat and D, is the abdominal wall with a little tone and a layer of fat.
Just knowing this little bit of information really helps us to understand that the muscle holding up the fat, if it’s strong, it’s going to lift and if it’s soft and weak your belly is going to droop over it. The second biggest mistake with belly fat is insulin because it causes belly fat. If we don’t regulate it, when you eat sugar, it becomes energy, and when you don’t use that energy it gets stored as fat.
When we digest our food, our bodies turn our food into glucose. This glucose is then regulated with a hormone we already have in our bodies called insulin, which helps turn the glucose into energy for our bodies to use when there’s an excess of glucose that can’t be used in our body.
The glucose is stored as fat for later use here. I’ll give you an analogy: insulin is the taxi glucose is the passenger and your body’s cells other stores. The passenger wants to go to the taxi, which is the insulin, picks up. The passenger, which is the glucose and drives it to the store, which is your cell, where it can then be used for energy immediately or stocked on the store shelves for later use. The problem is that, if your store has too much of this extra energy – and you never burn it – you end up with larger and larger fat stores sitting on the shelf for later use, and because a lot of this excess is sent straight to your belly.
You can start to notice weight gain around your belly, a lot quicker. What’s the solution? Well, insulin reacts differently. Depending on the foods we choose to eat foods, rich in refined, carbohydrates and simple sugars such as white bread, white rice, our sugary, cereals, cakes. They cause a rapid rise in our blood sugar and our insulin levels, leading to increased belly fat storage.
When you reach sugary foods, the sugar becomes energy and when you don’t use that energy it gets stored as fat. On the other hand, foods high in protein healthy fats and fiber slow the breakdown of sugar into the bloodstream, helping our blood sugar levels remain fairly consistent during the day the third-biggest belly fat mistake is allowing our stress hormones to get out of control and stress plays Such a significant role in your control of belly fat, so in order to be successful and get rid of belly fat once and for all, we must get our stress levels under control, and this is the perfect example of what happens to my belly.
Calm. Happy life is good and me, with lots of stress when you’re under stress your body increases the production of adrenaline, which signals our fat cells to release their stores of fatty acids into the body where they’re used as energy. This release gives a sudden burst of energy, which is called the fight and flight response.
This response was perfect in the day of the Stone Age when we had to escape from a tiger that was chasing us, but today’s stressors are from work, quarantine, relationships, 24/7 news, and these stressors are all day every day and also the foods that we put into Our body really stress our body and because our stress occurs due to mental stresses rather than physical stressors.
The free fatty acids that are released, aren’t burned off, as energy stress equals fat and, if you’re not burning it off, it stays as a result. Your adrenal glands release the hormone cortisol to help collect and store the unused fatty acids. Sadly, though, cortisol loves our belly, so it tends to deposit fat there versus other cells in our body. This is where exercise comes in.
Exercise is the best way to de-stress, along with meditation and creativity, to reduce your cortisol levels. The fourth big mistake with belly fat is not including enough protein into our diet. Getting adequate dietary protein is one of the most important factors in preventing weight gain high-protein diets. Make you feel full and satisfied increase your metabolic rate, and it leads to a spontaneous reduction in calorie intake. In contrast, low protein intake may cause you to gain belly fat over the long term.
My personal goal is to consume 30 grams of protein 3 times a day. So basically, what I do is I reduce my carbohydrates, but don’t eliminate them increase my protein and my fat. The fifth thing to be aware of is menopause. Gaining belly. Fat during menopause is extremely common.
At puberty, the hormone estrogen signals the body to begin storing fat on their hips and the thighs in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Around the time of menopause, a woman’s estrogen levels drop dramatically, causing fat to be stored in the abdomen. Rather than the hips and the thighs, it all squishes upwards, some women gain more belly fat at this time than others and has partially due to genetics, as well as the age at which menopause starts and to help regulate menopause symptoms. Everything I’ve outlined above will help exercise, eat right, destress and you’ll start to see improvement as promised. This is what it would actually take to achieve this body.
This diet is very strict, as you can see, there’s a lot of calories there, but there’s not much variety, and you have to be super strict with it, and the workout plan is pretty intense lots of cardio and the weight training is intense. So, all of this for the arms and when you get to a leg day, its amped up with weight, so lots and lots of weight and lots of leg work. And most of these exercises will also target the ABS. And please be aware that you would only do something like this as extreme as this and a strict supervision but wow what a lot of work a little bit of belly fat is. Okay, with me.
Take the time to read through all of these steps and all of the things that you have to do it’s a six week, diet and workout plan to shred body fat, build muscle, including a six-pack, to look like this. Let me know if anyone you know has tried this or if you’ve tried it. I want to know what happens to your mood and your hormone levels and, if you’re able to stick to it and of course was it worth it.

5 Steps to a Flat Belly After 40
As ladies age, oestrogen levels decrease and the way their bodies disperse fat changes too. Expect it to be even more difficult once you have passed the 40 mark if losing weight in your twenties was hard. While it is more difficult to drop weight after 40, it is possible and well worth any effort it takes to get a flat tummy. Not only will a trimmer midsection make you look better, it will also enhance your health and minimize your danger of some major health conditions.
Step # 1: Get Your Priorities Straight
The more important it is to you to reach your objectives, the most likely you are to prosper. While getting a flat stomach may be necessary to your self-esteem, it is the association in between tummy fat and a number of severe health conditions that must offer you with the greatest inspiration. People who have additional weight around the middle have actually been shown to be at a higher threat for developing hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease and high cholesterol.
Losing the fat on your abdominal area is an important step towards living a healthier life in your 40’s, 50’s, and beyond. Instead of just thinking of looking much better in your swimsuit, think of the long lasting and favorable effect losing those extra pounds could suggest.
Step # 2: Upgrade Your Exercise Plan
Ladies frequently find it irritating that men can reduce weight so much faster than they do. Guys have more muscle, giving them a greater capability to burn calories. Ladies likewise lose muscle as they age. To compensate for the loss in muscle, you need to either do more extreme cardio exercises or perform them at longer periods than you would have ten years ago. A lot of the more popular workouts today have sections where they do high-energy periods, or blasts, that accelerate the heart rate to burn more calories than maintaining the exact same strength throughout the workout.
In addition to cardio, you need a well-rounded exercise regimen that benefits body and mind. Yoga and Pilates are excellent options that you can do at home with a video or in a class at the fitness center. They also improve flexibility and enhance the core which simply takes place to consist of the abdominals!
Action # 3: Eliminate Stress
Meditation, breathing exercises, and talking to pals are simply some of the methods that you can step back, relax down, and take control of any circumstance. Take actions to prepare ahead and stay organised so that last-minute issues don’t creep up.
Action # 4: Say “No” to Dieting
While a slowing metabolic process means decreasing your calorie consumption to get the flat tummy you desire, the bigger focus will need to be on making much healthier options from which you get those calories. Eating foods that are high in hydrogenated oil leads to stomach fat. Consuming foods that are high in unsaturated fat leads to a boost in muscle tissue.
Step # 5: See Your Physician
Stomach fat typically goes with aging, however so do a number of health conditions that might be causing your sudden weight gain. Make sure that you have a clean bill of health before you begin working towards your goal.
