3 Reasons You're Not Losing Belly Fat
Losing belly fat isn’t just a summer thing - it’s a goal that many women (and men) struggle with at times. If you’ve been trying to switch up your diet and hit the gym more but still aren’t seeing the results, these might be the reasons:
You’re doing the wrong workout
Cardio workouts alone won’t help you slim down your waist. What you need is a balance of cardio strength training and weight resistance training. Muscle burns more calories than fat, which means you naturally burn more calories by having more muscle.
You’re eating too many processed foods
Refined grains like white bread, chips, and sugary drinks only increase inflammation in your body. Continuing to eat these processed foods will only slow the process of losing belly fat, so start incorporating more natural foods, fruit, vegetables, and whole grains which into your diet. They all have anti-inflammatory properties and can prevent belly bloat.
It’s not just a myth - as you mature, your body changes the way it gains and loses weight. Your metabolism slows and you will experience menopause. In menopause, the production of estrogen and progesterone slows. The testosterone levels start to drop, but at a slow rate. This causes women to hold weight in their bellies. You can, however, fight this by doing a combination of weight and cardiovascular training.
