Belly Fat & Inflammation
Is Your Belly Fat a Ticking Timebomb?
Sound a little far fetched? Well, in actuality it is not. Excess weight around the belly is not a vanity issue or just about aesthetics anymore. In fact, it is a major warning sign of serious health issues brewing behind the scenes in someone’s body. When I first meet people, I admit it, I can’t help it, but I look at their belly. I don't stare, I just take a quick glance to see if their belly exceeds their waistline. Why? Because it is one of the most simple health predictors going. In fact, recent science indicates that excess belly fat is one the greatest predictors of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, various cancers and Alzheimer’s. Look around. Start noticing people and their belly. No, it’s not being rude, you are just making an observation. And you will realize that we have an epidemic among us.
Unfortunately, most people don’t realize the serious hazard of excess belly fat. Yet, it comes with serious health consequences. What is considered excess? For women, if their belly exceeds their waistline and or/exceeds 35 inches. For men, if their belly exceeds their waistline and/or exceeds 40 inches.
Belly fat is unlike other fat in your body. It is charged with fat and inflammatory “switches”. Ready and waiting at any moment to make fat AND inflammation. These messages from your belly fat communicate to the rest of your body creating problems that result in chronic inflammation leading to chronic disease. Inflammation in the belly fat can mean inflammation in any other part of the body – including your brain.
There can be a variety of causes of excess belly fat including, chronic stress, environmental toxins, gut bacteria imbalances, infections, hormonal imbalances, blood sugar imbalances, poor food choices, alcohol, artificial sweeteners, high sugar diet, lack of sleep and much more.
