Tips on how to lose belly fat fast with hormone correcting peptides.

Belly fat is not only visually unattractive but extremely dangerous to one’s health. Clinical studies have been investigating into the whys and how’s of abdominal adiposity for decades. They have found that much of what has been stored on the belly is a result of poor diet and lifestyle choices.

The reason belly fat is so hard to lose, is often a result of hormonal dysregulation. Before you make a quick assumption that hormones are not your problem, realise that it is extremely common to have hormonal imbalances. Unless you have been living in a bubble, it is hard to side step the effects of environmental and chemical stressors. These nasties we find in our food, and in pretty much everything marketed as a consumable – even our medicines. Their ability to disrupt the normal functioning of the endocrine system is astounding, which is why hormonal dysregulation is not so far fetched.

Granted, its easy enough to increase belly fat if you have a hard time sticking with an exercise regime or eating healthy foods. Over time poor choices come back to haunt you. Luckily however, science has granted us with a viable solution to losing abdominal fat and with it comes a new found respect for the hormonal system. Understand how it affects us as we age, and you can lose belly fat, build lean muscle, experience a recharge of energy and much more.

Hormonal imbalances that cause belly fat:

Did you know?

Clinical studies reveal through the use of GH stimulating supplements, subjects with abdominal obesity were able to decrease subcutaneous fat stores and visceral fat. This was true in both males and females studied, and even shown effective in menopausal and postmenopausal women.  

Insulin: The Culprit

Insulin - Sweet Doughnut TreatsThere are a number of hormones contributing to your acquired belly fat. The biggest culprit however is INSULIN. Insulin is the fat storage hormone. When there are high levels of insulin, your body receives communication via the cells to gain weight around the belly. Insulin drives inflammation and oxidative stress. These cause a myriad of health issues.
Insulin resistance is what happens if you don’t get a handle of your health. Once insulin resistance occurs your body generates belly fat and then holds onto it for the rest of your life. One will start to feel extreme fatigue, especially after meals alongside a host of other related issues:
  • intense sugar cravings
  • hypoglycemia
  • high triglycerides
  • low HDL
  • lowered sex drive
  • problems with blood clotting
When food is scarce, we are programmed to store belly fat in response to sugar so that we can survive the winter. High insulin levels affect your body on so many levels. They have the power to influence other hormones in your body to your disadvantage.

Leptin for example, is the hormone that tells your body when you are full and have been adequately fed. When insulin blocks leptin, your body is fooled into thinking that you haven’t had enough food – this even after polishing off a large portion of food such as a “Man Sized” Beef Burger, Fries and Soda. Leptin resistance will lie to your brain and tell you that your hunger has not been satiated.

Sugar, sure it tastes good, but it is a devil in disguise. Sugar is a meddler in your body., sugar muddles, scrambles and muddies all of your normal appetite controls. Sugar hijacks your metabolism and over time creates insulin resistance.

Fructose tastes as sugary as it is metabolically damaging. Fructose takes the direct route straight to your liver and immediately starts manufacturing fat. Fructose is sneaky. The direct route to the liver means that no information or feedback is given to the brain signalling the calories received. It doesn’t reduce ghrelin (the appetite hormone) that is usually reduced when you eat real food.

When consuming sugars, your fat cells signal for more insulin resistance which in turn results in elevated blood insulin levels. Elevated blood insulin levels cause your body to store everything, most of this finds its home within the abdominal region.

Fatty liver is just one of the symptoms of insulin/hormonal related belly fat. A fatty liver, in turn generates more inflammation. The excess inflammation causes additional weight gain. Any condition within the body that causes inflammation will signal messages of insulin resistance.

 

Why Belly Fat is Not Your Biggest Challenge

The biggest challenge with being overweight is actually not your waistline, nor is it your weight.

Who is to blame?

Your brain!

Remove those ideas that keep you stuck in an endless cycle of yo-yo dieting.

Thinking the way you’ve always thought and doing things you’ve always done will only lead to more of the same.

Its Simple:

organic food for health
Eat food that is natural, organic and real.

Real food, which contains many nutrients means our body becomes satisfied more readily and responds physically as well as biologically. When you get true vitamins and minerals out of the food you eat, it helps you burn calories, it regulates your appetite as it should, lowers inflammation, boosts detoxification, aids digestion, regulates stress hormones, and helps your cells become more insulin sensitive. Load up on green vegetables. Protein should be in every meal.
Just say NO to stress Cortisol and its functionChronic stress makes your brain shrink and your belly to widen. Chronically elevated levels of cortisol (stress hormone) causes increased blood sugar and cholesterol, depression, dementia, and influences the accumulation of belly fat. You crave sugar and carbs and seek comfort food.

Food sensitivities = Our bodies are communicating with us.

We often crave the very foods we are allergic to. Remove them and within two to three days without them, you’ll experience renewed energy, relief from cravings and begin to shed belly fat.

Gluten and dairy are two big food sensitivities that once you remove from your diet will promote reduced belly fat and a slimmer waistline.

Sleep is a must – 7-8hrs suggested per night

Not getting enough sleep drives sugar cravings up more than a notch, alongside the cravings for carbs. Even a partial poor sleep can contribute to insulin resistance. Poor sleep adversely impacts fat-regulating hormones such as leptin and ghrelin.
Optimize your nutrient levels:

Be sure to consume multivitamins that contain blood sugar-balancing nutrients
Optimize omega-3 fat as they are important for controlling insulin functionality. Make sure you optimize your vitamin D. Low levels of this critical vitamin impair appetite control. Consider taking natural supplements for cravings control. L-glutamine and PGX (a super fiber) are among the natural dietary supplements that can help reduce cravings.

Drinks after work
Monitor your alcohol intake.

A nice glass of red wine with a meal, a cold beer on a hot day –  alcohol can do more harm than you realise, particularly if you suffer from diabetes or controlling your belly fat.

Two glasses of wine a day =   72,000 extra calories a year = an extra 20 pounds a year. These liquid calories go right to your stomach.
