Abdominal obesity is fast becoming a serious health risk. Currently, about 54% of U.S. adults have been found to suffer from this. Avoid these foods if you ever want to have a six-pack.
Found in many foods, such as white bread/rice/pasta, it’s what many of us grew up on. Try unrefined foods (whole wheat, quinoa, and brown rice) as healthier food choices. Then, add veggies, fruit, protein and low-fat dairy to complete your diet.
Trans fats can add as much of 7.2% of “new fat” in just 6 years. It not only specifically adds abdominal fat, but hurts your heart as well. Time to quit buying those frozen pizzas and other pre-packaged foods.
An increasing amount of studies have found that those who drank diet soda gained almost TRIPLE the amount of abdominal fat as those who did not. Furthermore, artificial sweeteners, in general have been found to become insulin resistant.
