Excess belly fat (visceral fat) is very unhealthy and everyone wants to get rid of it. Here are some of the most common causes of it!
Have you recently gained a lot of belly fat and it seems like you can’t lose it? You must find the main reason that caused this problem. Even if you have a normal weight, if there is excess fat around your waist, you might be exposed to increased risk of health problems.
Pay more attention to your lifestyle and go see a specialist if the problem persists. Here is why you might have gained all this fat!
1. Poor Fatty Acid Metabolism. Your body must be able to use fat as fuel. In this way the body won’t store it on your organs and around your waist, but will use it to produce energy. Of course, you must keep in mind that a diet rich in bad fats will make you fat no matter what, so make sure that you eat plenty of good fats from wild fish, coconut oil, avocados or cold pressed olive oil. Your doctor can determine if you have a poor fatty acid metabolism and can find a way to solve this problem.
2. The Wrong Gut Bacteria. An imbalance in gut bacteria increases your risk of massive weight gain, including visceral fat. Researchers have found that obese people tend to have greater numbers of Firmicutes bacteria than people of normal weight. Studies suggest that these types of bacteria may increase the amount of calories that are absorbed from food. Go see a doctor if you’re constantly experiencing digestive problems or if you think that this might be the reason you’re gaining abdominal fat.
3. Hormonal Imbalances. Many people have to deal with hormonal imbalances nowadays. This can actually include imbalance in brain based hormones, sex hormones, adrenal hormones and insulin levels. Since hormones have a major role in the human body, whenever imbalances appear there will be many other issues like weight gain, infertility, thyroid dysfunctios or diabetes. It’s very important to see a specialist if you suffer from this.
Make sure that you have a healthy and balanced diet and go to the gym as often as you can. In this way you’ll not just keep yourself fit, but you’ll also help you organism to function better and fight all the bad. Go see a doctor everytime you feel like something doesn’t work properly in your body!
