Getting Rid Of Belly Fat Safely
A fat belly can cause some serious health problems, and getting rid of it can be extremely beneficial to your health and appearance. Getting rid of belly fat is not easy for many people, but there is a simple, tried-and-true diet to lose belly fat. By cutting out all manufactured/packaged foods, grains, dairy, and legumes (beans, peanuts, etc.) for two months, with unlimited intake of lean meat, fish, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruit, and water, the body is reprogrammed to its optimal fat burning state. This way of eating is the way humans ate for a millenia.
A common worry about adopting this diet is a lack of calcium. Our body’s acid/base balance covers this. Dairy, grains, and sugar cause a net acid load in the body, which leads to de-mineralization of bones. While meat can cause an acid load, a high amount of vegetables and fruits yields a net alkaline load, which is much better for your health and lets our body use every bit of calcium it takes in from the same vegetables and fruits.
Another concern is the relatively low amount of carbohydrates ingested in this diet. No worry is necessary, as the body actually only needs a very small amount of carbohydrate. Such small amounts are needed to keep the brain active and to expand red blood cells that even eating just fruits and vegetables yields more than enough carbohydrate.
A final issue most people have with this diet is lethargy for the first two to three weeks. This is fine, as your body is just adapting to the changes in diet to burn more fat instead of more carbohydrate. Belly fat is unattractive and harmful to your health, and getting rid of it is a great achievement that can add years to your life. The simple guidelines previously stated make up a safe, effective diet for losing belly fat that simply needs to be tried. If no results or progress are made, the beauty of this diet is that if people don’t like it, they simply switch back to their original way of eating and look for other options
