Getting rid of belly fat for both men and women is a great issue and something that every man and woman should take seriously. Have you ever wondered why your belly or tummy is growing bigger and round like a pot? This is known as "belly fat" or "pot belly".

People who are experiencing pot belly have had cause to change their wardrobe often than necessary. Some men have changed their pants or trousers as a result of waistline enlargement and protruding tummy. The same applies to women too. Some women use a kind of a waist band to compress the stomach or they wear very tight pants and trousers to bring it down. Sometimes you begin to wonder if men too can be pregnant because of the protruding of the belly. Belly fat is something that anyone can have especially if such a person has a bad eating habit like eating very heavy food late in the night. Some of the other causes of belly fat or pot belly may include:

  • Stress,
  • Improper Digestion,
  • Genetics,
  • Excessive Eating,
  • Lack of Exercise,
  • Menopause,
  • Ineffective Functioning of the Liver, etc.

Belly fat increases ones risk of:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High triglycerides
  • Insulin resistance
  • Low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good," cholesterol
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Sleep apnea
  • Some types of cancer
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes

Is there really a cure for belly fat? There are various solution proffered to be the cure of pot belly. Most people have tried different advice given by so called expert on reducing belly fat but have found out that it does not really work. Let me put this straight that starving yourself is an unacceptable cure as this may cause more damage and even ulcer. Eating regularly helps the body metabolism to function effectively as required. Regular exercise will help to burn excess fat and make you stay strong and healthy.

Before you start any fat losing program you need to undergo detoxification in order to cleanse your system and get it to function well and remain healthy. You can access more information on how to lose belly fat and stay healthy everywhere on online but ensure that you subscribe to expert advice only.

Loosing fat belly or pot belly is important to every one regardless of sex. Do find means of reducing belly fat as soon as you can in order to forestall or prevent some of the ailment listed above. Do not overwork yourself as this may lead to stress and enhance belly fat. Be mindful of the kind of abs programs you subscribe to as this may end up causing you more harm than good.

Very good points. We tend to look at things as having a single cause and a single cure. You point out that this is a dangerous misconception.
