3 Tips to Burn Belly Fat
It’s Matt, and today I have a little science lesson for you about your “belly fat” hormone, also known as cortisol. It’s a hormone that your body releases to deal with stress, and unfortunately, high levels of cortisol have been linked to increased levels of abdominal fat.
Want to reduce cortisol and burn more belly flab?
Here are 3 things that you can do starting today:
New research shows that if you work more than 48 hours per week, the likelihood of consuming excess alcohol goes up dramatically. Alcohol consumption increases cortisol, and together they both increase belly fat. If you’re looking to shrink your belly, trimming back your working hours while choosing calorie-burning exercise for stress relief (in lieu of alcohol) will do wonders for your waistline.
Don’t Consume Caffeine After 6 P.M.
Although caffeinated beverages can enhance fat-burning when consumed in connection with exercise, caffeine can be a double whammy on cortisol levels—especially if consumed at night, when caffeine is likely to negatively affect the quality of your sleep. Getting quality, uninterrupted sleep each night is critical to reducing cortisol. So you’ll want to avoid caffeine in the evening hours.
Take Time to Unplug
A recent Canadian study showed that those who were constantly "plugged in" to technology throughout the day (TV, smartphones, computers, etc.) were significantly more stressed than those who took time to "unplug" during designated time blocks each day. More stress equals more belly fat. So if you want a trim belly, start planning some device-free time each day.
Now, if you really want to get the cutting edge on reducing belly fat, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a brand new way to burn belly fat that has been shown in more than a dozen research studies to help you burn fat and slim your waist at an accelerated rate.
In fact, one breakthrough study showed that those who performed this belly-burning trick just twice daily burned 400% more fat than those who didn’t. Another study published in The Journal of International Medical Research showed that those using this powerful flab-burning trick lost 20% of their body fat in just 12 weeks. And get this...
The trick takes less than 1 minute to perform!
Keep fit and have fun!
