Carrying around excess abdominal fat is detrimental to your health and can be deadly. This fat is particularly challenging to lose, and basic sit-ups don’t seem to do the job.
We look and feel better when our waistline is toned. And the benefits of losing fat around the waistline go far beyond aesthetics.
This video gives you an idea of fat-reducing exercises that can be done at home.
With the challenges of the past year, we are more acutely aware of the critical need to take responsibility for our own health and boost our immune system to stay healthy. Having a strong immune system does not just protect from serious illness, including the current viruses, but also reduces the risk of contracting a wide variety of systemic illnesses such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, and other chronic illnesses.
Extra belly fat causes the heart to work harder, and it produces inflammatory molecules and high inflammation levels. Ideally, your waistline should be no more than half your height in inches. Reducing your waistline and strengthening your core not only reduces the risk of chronic illness but helps to improve posture and reduce stress on the spine, hips, knees, and feet.
Diet is especially important when working to reduce fat around the waist. You cannot exercise your way out of a bad diet. Cutting out the sugar, adding in the GOOD fats, removing processed foods loaded with toxins, upping nutrient-dense foods, and reducing overall consumption of processed carbs will help to reset your body and reduce unhealthy fat.
At Foresight Chiropractic, we focus on helping patients strengthen their immune system and holistically improve their health. In addition to providing precise and gentle Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic, we offer the following services to help reduce and eliminate your joint and muscle pain and enhance your exercise program:
BEMER vascular therapy. Many professional sports enthusiasts use BEMER to warm up prior to a work out and to relax and detox the lactic acid after a workout. For general wellness, 8 minutes twice a day is all it takes.
Advanced Muscle Integration Technique sports therapy helps to reduce and eliminate joint and muscle pain and restore balance in the body. Trauma, accidents, repetitive motions and illness impacts the brain and nervous system and can “shut down” muscles or muscle groups -- like a circuit breaker -- to protect the body from further damage. This unique technique, after testing over 600 muscles, will “turn them back on.”
