Apron Belly: Why It Happens and What You Can Do
What is Apron Belly?
Apron belly happens when there are folds or layers of fat around your abdomen. These layers make it difficult for your organs to move properly. Your intestines, liver, gall bladder, kidneys and other vital organs cannot work properly because they have no room to move freely inside your body. A person with a large amount of abdominal fat may not even be able to stand up straight due to the weight of these layers. If left unchecked, a person’s health will suffer greatly. There are many factors which contribute to the development of apron belly including genetics, age, diet and exercise habits, stress levels and much more. The good news is that you don’t need any special training or equipment in order to get rid of your apron belly! All you need is time and patience!
How Does Apron Belly Affect My Health?
When you have a large amount of abdominal fat, your digestive system becomes less efficient. This makes it harder for food to enter your body and digest properly. This leads to problems such as constipation, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Fatty foods like meat, dairy products and eggs cause blood sugar spikes which lead to high blood pressure. High blood pressure causes heart disease and strokes. There are many other types of cancer which can be caused by apron belly. In fact, it is the leading cause of colorectal, pancreatic and uterine cancer among women. These types of cancer kill over 2,000 women each year in the USA alone. A person with abdominal fat is also more likely to become addicted to drugs and alcohol. This happens because the body becomes overwhelmed and dependent upon the external source of energy. This also leads to weakened organs and loss of mental acuity. The liver is the most common organ to become damaged by alcohol and drugs. Having a large belly can even lead to laziness and life-threatening conditions such as aneurysms and venous thrombosis.
How Do I Get Rid Of My Apron Belly?
The best way to get rid of apron belly is by losing weight in general. You can do this by eating less and exercising more. The reasons why this works are pretty simple. When you eat less you consume less energy, which means your body has to tap into your reserves of stored fat. When you exercise, you build muscle. Muscle burns fat even at rest! So the more muscle you build, the more fat you will burn over time.
How Can I Get Started?
If you are ready to make a change in your life and discover a healthy lifestyle, all you need to do is follow the instructions below. Before we get started, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First of all, you do not need any special equipment in order to get rid of your excess weight. All you need is your body and your determination. You also do not need to join an expensive gym or buy any fancy health foods. Start off by drinking more water and eating more fruits and vegetables. These things are not only good for your health, but they will also help to reduce your appetite.
Here are the steps you need to take in order to get rid of your apron belly for good: Before you start, set a realistic goal of how much weight you want to lose. It is usually recommended that you should lose no more than 1-2lbs per week. Also, make sure you choose a weight loss goal that you will be able to maintain in the future.
Once you have decided on a goal, write it down so you can keep yourself motivated.
The next step is to start eating healthy and consuming less calories. There are plenty of websites online where you can find out how many calories there are in different types of food. Try to pick meals that are both low in calories but still nutritious.
For snacks, eat nuts and fruits. Also, drink a lot of water.
Once you have found out how many calories you should be consuming each day, it’s time to start exercising! If you belong to a gym, this part will be easier for you. Go to the treadmill or the exercise bike and set the machine on a slow speed.
Start off by walking on the treadmill for 10-15 minutes. This should be easy enough for anyone to perform. Also, each day try to add a few minutes to your exercise until you reach a half an hour. If you do not have access to a gym, that’s alright! You can start off by taking a walk around your neighborhood. Also, try doing some sit-ups or push-ups. After a week or so you should be in good enough shape to go for a jog around your neighborhood. The most important thing is to start off slow and pace yourself. If you push yourself too hard, you are likely to injure yourself and that will only set you back. Go at your own pace and increase your workout as time goes on.
With these steps, you should be able to achieve a slimmer healthier body in no time!
Good luck, and start living healthier today!
