So far in this 7-part blog series, I have told you about a number of ways you’re losing your energy, including the effects of food sensitivities and allergies, caffeine, stress, and toxins and preservatives. This fifth post in the series talks about the how extra body fat storage is robbing you of your get-up-and-go.
Blubber. Lard. Flab. No matter what you call that extra body fat, it’s another energy enemy.
Fat around the belly is not just a place to store extra calories. Fat around the belly is very active, secreting all kinds of inflammatory chemicals. In fact, fat around the belly, also called “visceral fat,” has even been labeled as another endocrine organ by some folks.
Inflammation resulting from belly fat leads to all types of imbalances…including abnormal insulin responses. Yes, again, inflammation and imbalanced blood sugar affect your energy levels.
So how do you deal with extra body fat and to help get back your get-up-and-go?
You can start with a three week cleanse program. It can immediately help rid you body of the harmful fat it’s storing.
