Before we point onto the solution, we need to discuss a few points that are vital for you to digest and understand. The littlest of things that seem irrelevant in weight loss are the easiest to disregard without analyzing its overall effects.
Cortisol is Produced by the Adrenal Glands
Take food allergies for example: Food sensitivities and food intolerances do not simply mean you can just swallow the outcome with a few trips to the lavatory plus a dose of Loperamide.
When your body experiences some form of disturbance, it adapts by increasing cortisol levels. Cortisol is one of the body’s ammunition against stress. Continue reading →
We start off by defining what is Omentum Fat. As defined by Dr. Oz, Omentum Fat is not the one you can pinch. It is located right under the depths of your belly and is closely seated at your organs.
Contrary to popular beliefs, not all fats are the same.
Omentum Fat Explained
The fat on your thighs are much more different from Omentum fat since you can easily get rid of that and propose no extensive danger to your health.

Sometimes, foods are not what they seem. We rely on what people say around us and make it a basis to discriminate certain type of food as either fattening or dangerous to our well-being. Below are foods that were considered a “Blazing Fat Loss” such but in reality, they are among the fat-burning elements that can be incorporated to any meal. They contain the vital vitamins and minerals, as well as micro-nutrients that will induce the fat burning hormones within our body. They are, of course, scrumptious and absolutely satisfying.
The list will render you such a pleasant surprise!
Berries are known to be rich in vitamins and antioxidants. They are also packed with natural sugar which makes them energy boosters.
Among the berry family are strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, all of which contains a significant amount of dietary fibers which controls digestion and absorption of sugar and carbohydrates.
This means blood sugar and insulin spikes are, as well, prevented!
It is suggested that you buy organic fresh berries which are easy on the pocket and very much well –situated.

The Thyroid Glan produce T4 hormone which is converted into T3 hormone in the body.
T3 Hormone is the active hormone circulating in your body and affect many metabolism processes going on in your body.
Some of the most important of these metabolism processes are:
Vitamin Metabolism and Absorption
Body Temperature Regulation
Thyroid Hormone and Energy Expenditure
The thyroid hormone acts on every cell in your body, this has a huge implication on energy expenditure and the state of fat in your body, remember that every cell in your body has a receptor for thyroid hormone and this by itself should tell you how important this hormone is.
The way which the thyroid hormone works on the body cells is very complex and many factors on the way can disrupt the normal process.
The end result should be getting the T3 Hormone to connect with it’s receptor in your cell (and you have trillions of cells in your body), the process goes like this… the Pituitary gland in your brain release Thyroid Simulating Hormone (TSH) which acts on the Thyroid Gland to release some T3 hormone, but mostly it will release T4 hormone, then, in your body, and mainly it will happen in your Liver!
So you can see that there are at least 3 places where something can go wrong here in this process as we have just saw:
Belly Fat accumulation is primarily caused by Hormonal Imbalance.

When you have a lot of on-going stress, wether is’t physical stress or emotional stress, Cortisol levels in your body will go up and your body will get into belly fat storing mode.
Another cause for cortisol levels to go up is by drinking Coffee in excess which in turn stimulates your adrenals which will produce more cortisol in response.
Over time this can set a chain reaction where you wear your adrenals to the point that you will disrupt the normal daily cycle of cortisol, where it should start in High peak when you wake up in the morning and go down in 1 Hour to a low levels and only come back in late evening to go up slowly into the night when you are asleep and get back to it’s normal cycle of peaking up in the morning again.
Failing to stay in this Cortisol cycle is a sure way to have sleeping problems and Belly Fat Accumulation starts to happen. Continue reading →
