1. Belly Fat is Worse Than Other Fat
It’s true: Belly fat is the worst kind of fat — and not just because of the way it looks in beach pictures.
Deep belly fat (the kind that makes for a classic beer belly) actually churns out proteins and hormones that make all kinds of bad things worse, including LDL (lousy) cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, and triglycerides. It’s also a player in insulin resistance and red-alert-causing inflammation. Makes that fat on your thighs seem downright charming, no?
2. Dropping Belly Fat Isn’t Just a Calorie Game
The type of food you eat affects whether belly fat stays or goes. In a study, two groups of people ate the same number of calories.
One group got their carbs from refined grains, the other from beans and whole grains. The latter group lost more belly fat. You can, too! Replace two servings a day of refined grains (e.g., white bread, white pasta) with a couple servings of satisfying lentils, chickpeas, or kidney beans.
3. Certain Condiments Can Make Belly Fat Vanish
In a study in which obese people consumed either 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or a placebo each day, the apple cider vinegar group shed more body and belly fat than people who took the placebo — even though everyone was on the same diet and did the same workout.
4. Sitting Promotes Belly Fat
Belly fat prefers when you sit, so if you want to make the bad stuff around your waist scram, it’s time to get up and move. Just 3 hours a week of aerobic exercise (e.g., walking, jogging, cycling, elliptical training) can bust belly fat. You just need to do it at an up tempo, not at window-shopping speed.
5. TV Remotes Have a “Bye-Bye Belly Fat” Button
Chase away belly fat by pushing the “off” button on your TV remote. People who cut their TV time in half consume 100 fewer calories a day without even trying. That’s a pound every 35 days without even trying!
6. A Thousand Crunches Won’t Do the Trick
Crunches can firm up the muscles under your fat and keep your core strong, and that’s important for many reasons. But they won’t make that fat magically vanish on their own. For fat erasing, you need regular aerobic exercise, such as walking.
7. You Really Can Blame Your Boss/Sister/Loud Upstairs Neighbor
The higher your stress, the bigger your waist. Stress makes the hormone cortisol climb, which makes you crave high-calorie snacks that get stored in your belly as fat. You don’t have to quit your job, fight with your sister, move, etc. We recommend you grab a soothing cup of Javita Energy+Mind Coffee, Lean+Green Tea or even Burn+Control Coffee to lift your spirits and chill out. The people around you can thank us for this.
8. Flat-Belly Success is Measured in Inches, Not Pounds
Ditch the scale in favor of a tape measure. This is a better way to monitor belly fat because everybody’s weight tends to fluctuate a little from day to day.
9. You Really Can Eat More and Still Shrink Your Belly
Studies have shown that people who eat six small meals a day have smaller waists than people who eat two or three large meals a day. Of course, “small” is the key. To nix belly fat for good, don’t sustain it with sugar, syrups, and saturated and trans fats. Instead, sustain the rest of you with whole grains, lean proteins, fiber, exercise, and stress control. Your waist’s loss is your life’s gain.
10. You can Change Your Coffee/Tea, and Change Your Life in an easy, relaxed manner!
The medical research is in and it’s conclusive! You can ditch the belly fat by doing what you are already doing: drinking coffee and/or tea WITH HEALTHY BENEFITS (infused herbs) each and every day just like you already are doing!
In an article in Woman’s World Magazine, January 21, 2013, Dr. Oz reveals that Garcinia Cambogia is an all natural supplement that will help you become skinner, happier, less tired and melt off as much as 8 lbs a week for some people; he says that it converts fat into energy, reduces appetite and boosts happiness hormones.
Dr. Oz states that there is now solid evidence that dieters who take Garcinia Cambogia extract stand to lose 200-300% more weight than dieters who don’t.
He goes on to explain that, “Instead of say taking off 15 lbs on your New Year’s health goals, add Garcinia Cambogia extract to the mix and expect to drop 30 even 45 lbs” – so this is really exciting, because with Javita Burn+Control Coffee or Lean+Green Tea, there’s no more pills or protein drinks to choke down!
Have you ever heard any one say, “Oh darn, I forgot to drink my cup of coffee (tea) this morning.”
And that’s the genius behind Javita! No more having to remember to choke down pills or protein drinks.
