3 things you need to know to in order to get understanding about the abdominal fat
- Our body is composed of different types of fat cells and some of these cells are very difficult to burn and lose.
- Belly and hips are parts of the body where these fat cells are particularly stubborn.
- To burn those fats, a specific diet combined with a sport can help you achieve your weight loss goal.
And for those who have tried everything and have not lost a single centimeter, perhaps genetic factors are not in question; the problem is probably somewhere else. Remember that reduction of intake of carbohydrates and sugars in combination with sustained cardio activity is not always the solution.
However, do not despair! To get a flat stomach, just follow the right method.
In order to lose belly fat, you must first understand how the fat burning mechanism. For when our body burns fat, a two-stage process is triggered: lipolysis and oxidation. When fat cells reject the stored fatty acids in the blood, the body is under lipolysis, and when the cells begin to burn fatty acids, oxidation talking.
Production of hormones such as adrenaline and noradrenaline (or catecholamines) triggers the process of lipolysis. When the chemical synthesis of organic compounds reaches the fat cells, they will stimulate our receivers and then stimulate the fatty acids to allow other cells to absorb and burn.
When you are on a diet, and you do not lose fat in the areas you’re targeting!
When you follow a diet to lose the extra kilos, you find that after a few weeks you have lost some weight. Unfortunately usually fat lost is not always located in the targeted areas. Result: you lose the fat on arms or chest but the belly and thighs always look the same! There is a scientific explanation for this: catecholamines do not have the same “effect” on all fat cells of the body; some respond well, others not. Why? This phenomenon is related to the fact that the cells are consisted of two categories of catecholamine receptors, alpha and beta. They are completely opposite: the beta receptors activate the process of lipolysis while alpha receptor blocks it.
Here’s the REAL reason why you can not lose fat around the belly. Fat on the belly and thighs is much harder to lose because the fat cells in these parts contain much more alpha than beta receptors.
