Are You Sick And Tired Of Carrying Around Extra Belly Fat?

Tired of that impossible-to-get-rid-of belly weight? We are going to show you how to obtain that flat stomach you have always wanted! For most of us who are overweight, we seem to have the most fat on our belly. And when someone wants to lose weight, the main thing they really want to do is lose belly fat.

Some say obesity is an epidemic these days, but we beg to differ. We think belly fat is the real epidemic. Yes, there are plenty of people who have fat on their arms and legs, or evenly distributed throughout their bodies, but the majority of overweight people today harbour more fat on their belly than anywhere else on the body.

And there's a reason for it. Today's life is hectic, rushed, and stressful. We don't routinely cook anymore, and when we do it's not actually cooking at all. Instead, we warm up microwave meals, or mix something with water out of a box. If it can't be ready in a few minutes, most people won't bother with it.

That's convenience. That's why fast food is so popular... we don't have to spend any time or effort on it. But that's also why we have so much belly fat in the United States today.

Try this math on for size: Your typical full size hamburger, small fries and Coke equals out to be around 1000 calories. Not only does the average woman only require 1800-2500 calories per day, this meal will exceed both fat and sodium requirements by a large margin. That 1000 calorie feast is usually consumed in half an hour or less, (considerably less if eaten while driving). It took half an hour to consume; now how long will it take to burn off that same amount of calories? Depending on the activity it could take two hours on up to about six.

You see, your body is a very smart, very efficient machine. When you feed it junk and convenience foods, you're not giving it much in the way of nutrition. Instead you're actually giving it a lot of sugar and empty calories.

The body thinks you're starving, though. Since there's no decent nutrition being fed to it, you must be in the midst of a famine. So the body's job is to keep you alive. And if it thinks you're in a famine phase, it will store away anything it can, in any way it can. And this usually ends up meaning you get more fat stores added.

Now the body creates these extra fat stores on your belly, because that's the core part of your body. You need your arms and legs to run away from predators and survive in general. Over hundreds of thousands of years, the body has evolved to allow you easier free use of your arms and legs.

This is all part of the body's built-in survival mechanism. The body hasn't had time to adapt to modern uses of its self. It evolved into its current state over thousands of years, but we've just begun to use convenience foods and processed, chemical-loaded junk in the past hundred. So it's still doing what it needs to ensure you stay alive; thus you get fat created on your belly.

Getting rid of belly fat is fairly easy to do, but most of us don't like it. Why? Because it generally involves not eating those sugary and convenient foods we adore so much these days.
