For years, women have been faced with the problem of having, unwanted belly fat. For some, this is a major issue that can give women a complex about their appearance, lead to loss of self-confidence, depression, and more.

The Leading Causes of Depression among Women with Belly Fat

This is mainly due to promotional advertising - almost everywhere you go there is a billboard, an article, a commercial, television show, or other, promoting tight ABS. However, this is not really a bad thing, since it can actually help to motivate people, to want to look their best? And, in today’s society with fashion trends being so revealing, you almost have to have tight ABS, that is if you want to get with the trends and wear that little half shirt, or tight little black dress and look good.

Are Women The Only Ones Who Have Belly Fat?

Belly fat is not only a woman’s issue; men also have problems with belly fat. However, with females, it is usually the lower part of the belly that protrudes, wherein males; it’s the upper part of the stomach.

Even people, who are very thin, can have bulging bellies, big hips, thighs, rears, or others. Some people can be skinny on top of their body, yet heavy on the bottom and vice versa.

Why it is so important to Get Rid of Belly Fat

Of course, every woman wants to look their best, men, maybe not so much, but there are more important reasons why losing belly fat is crucial, rather than for appearance purposes only, and that’s health risks that can be critical.

Having belly fat or too much fat around any part of your body can lead to long-term health issues and put you at greater risk of developing life-threatening conditions such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and more. Therefore, everyone needs to learn more about body fat and how to lose it. The problem is belly fat can be very hard to get rid of unless you know what you’re dealing with and how to get rid of it.

Where Does Belly Or Body Fat Come From, And Why Is It So Hard To Get Rid Of It?

Fat can build up in any part of the body. It is generally the result of having more amounts of energy than our bodies are able to use. In simple terms, most of the food we eat is converted to energy. After our bodies use what energy it needs for cell structure, metabolism, oxygen, and more, it will leave excess energy that has to go somewhere. This is where exercise comes in. Exercise can help release some of this excess energy before it goes through a process called, “lipolysis”, and is stored as fat.

There are two types of fat cells that we all have in our bodies, alpha cells and beta cells that are used to store fat, only, the beta cells work slower in the process than the alpha. Therefore, those with higher amounts of beta cells, in certain parts of their body, (particularly bellies), will have excess fat in that area, where parts that contain more alpha will have less fat. This is why it is harder to lose weight in some areas of our bodies.

Changing Your Lifestyle

But there is hope. With the right diet and exercise plan, you can lose excess fat. However, the only way to keep it off is by changing your lifestyle completely.

There is more to looking good than just being thin. Matter of fact, you can be very thin, but still not look good, if you’re not healthy. Another important thing is toning and tightening your muscles so they can be firm, not saggy. So, you want to be fit, trim, and healthy altogether to look your best and stay that way.

Making the Right Choices and Sticking With them

How many times have people made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight, or said, “I’ll start my diet next week”, but never do?

Here’s something you can do to stick to your plans. Write yourself a note explaining why you want to lose weight, then every time you start to fall behind on your diet plans, read your note and remember why you wanted to diet in the first place. Stick to a good diet and exercise plan, and you are bound to see results soon. Although it would be great, these things don’t happen overnight.

Another thing I have heard people often say, “I have been dieting for a long time, but still don’t see any changes”. Are you sure about that? Did you know that if you see someone almost every day, they can go from 120 pounds to 220 pounds without you ever even noticing it? You may not see changes, but others who haven’t seen you in a while, may.

Try taking photos of yourself now, then again in 3 months, wearing the same clothes and doing the same poses and you will see the difference if you have stuck to the right diet and exercise plans.

Using Apps to Make Your Diet Experience Fun and Effective

You heard the expression there is an app for everything? Well, there are some that can make losing weight fun and effective. Many allow you to set your goal of how much weight you want to lose by a certain time, and calculate how many calories you can intake daily to achieve your goal.

There are also apps that you can use to keep track of how many calories you eat that will also keep you informed on how many you have left for the day.

Have you stuck to a diet plan that worked? Please let us know about it in the comment section below.
