Stubborn Fat

Fat deposition in the body is mostly associated with several disorders including metabolic syndrome, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes, genetic factors, age, diet and exercise habits could be the cause for stubborn pockets of fat.

Eating food with high sugar and fat content increases fat deposition but it is not only these types of food that cause this problem; high calorie intake regardless of the food source will affect abdominal fat accumulation.

Underlying health problems for abdominal fat such as insulin resistance, hypothyroid, cushing syndrome (excessive hormone production by the adrenal glands) should be first investigated.

Menopause triggers oil deposition in the body. Sedentary life and resulting decrease in energy consumption, excessive alcohol consumption also increase abdominal fat. Chronic stress is one of the most important causes of abdominal fat.

If you have more abdominal fat despite having the same calorie intake and eating the same food as before, this can be linked to insufficient physical activity and ageing. Because with ageing, people who do not follow a certain physical exercise program they experience muscle loss. Losing muscles, the system lowers our metabolism rate leading to a reduction to daily calories burned. That means even if you take the same amount of calories, your body may not burn the same amount of calories that it did 5 years ago.

The most important fact that needs to be known is that the fat that is formed in the body is different from the fat consumed. Body fat is increased not only with intake of fatty foods and oils/fats but also with the excessive intake of carbohydrates and proteins such as pastries: pies, doughnuts, soft drinks, chips, desserts, broths and gravies, salad dressings and the fat deposits get stored around the waistline.

In fact, you can use a pedometer to observe how much calories you spend a day. Studies show that everyone should take 8.000 - 10.000 steps per day. The most practical way to understand how active you are is to buy and use a pedometer and increase the number of steps you take every day to increase the calories you burn.
