If you are a typical American you may be dieting but are not losing belly weight, the numbers of people who are overweight in the United States now comes in at an amazing 100 million Americans, there are a tremendous number of people who are carrying a very dangerous amount of excessive poundage on the body. Stomach fat is extremely dangerous and can shorten you lifespan. In fact, not losing belly weight was recently linked to an increase in Cancer
Fat is more than unattractive it is dangerous
What many people are not aware of is that even a little stomach fat can cause healthy cells in the body to turn cancerous, this can lead to shortened lifespan according to recent studies. A recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reported on researchers who used CT scanner to test how the body reacts to stomach fat.
This study marks the first time CT scanning was used to study fat depots located in specific areas for direct associations with disease risk. The study revealed that fat on the stomach is simply dangerous, the researchers were surprise to find that where the fat is carried on the body really matters! Not losing belly weight was the main link to heart disease and cancer. It is in fact inflammation that is causing our inability to lose weight today. Processed foods have made the food makers rich while increasing our inflammatory obesity.
"Contrary to previously published studies comparing BMI and waist circumference, the presence of abdominal fat improved the ability to predict for cardiovascular disease, supporting the hypothesis that abdominal fat may partially underlie the association of body fat and heart disease and cancer," said Dr. Caroline S. Fox, senior author on the study and a senior investigator at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Laboratory for Metabolic and Population Health in Framingham, Mass.
Professor Luigi Fontana at Washington School of medicine stated
“Nowadays, it’s clear that atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease. There also is evidence that inflammation plays a role in cancer, and there is even evidence that it plays a role in aging. Someday we may learn that visceral fat is involved in those things, too.”
If you are not losing belly weight with dieting you are not alone, millions diet and the stomach fat does not leave, the reason for this is inflammation . The food today causes inflammation leading to belly fat, it is not your fault. The food causes inflammation and insulin resistance and this is why even thin people carry stomach fat today. When you reverse the damage from food chemicals the stomach fat goes way, a typical diet does not reverse this.
If you are one of the 100 million not losing belly weight, there is some good news;when doctors used a diabetic “Type” diet created for diabetics on people without diabetes everyone lost stomach fat,. this worked in 17 countries for those without without diabetes.
Why would a diabetic type diet cause people without diabetes to suddenly lose stomach fat? This is because only a diet that reverses inflammation and insulin resistance will remove belly fat today. This is how people in 17 countries finally lost belly fat.
