That's what makes belly fat so dangerous!

If you want to get rid of the small rolls and cuffs around the midsection, then it's not just about the aesthetics. But for your health. Because abdominal fat, as several studies have shown, is the worst kind of fat. It causes inflammatory reactions in the body, increases cholesterol levels, blood pressure and vascular calcification and increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And also with otherwise slim people who have a completely normal BMI (between 18.5 – <25), but just a Kullerbдuchlein!

Why do we get rid of belly fat so badly

But why does the deep belly fat – in the jargon "visceral fat" – have such a negative effect on our health? The scientists of the University of Illinois in Chicago found out in a sensational study. It is guilty of a molecule with the cryptic name TRIP-Br2. This molecule prevents fat loss in the body – and in our abdominal fat to a much greater extent than in other layers of fat. This is related to the cell structure, which re-uses the nutritional nutrients called endoplasmic reticulum (ER). So – and now it comes to a diabolical cycle, which also explains why we get rid of the belly fat much more difficult than other love handles. Because if we eat too much, we also supply too many nutrients to our body at once. The ER sitting in the abdominal fat cells is thus completely overwhelmed. It gets under stress and can no longer optimally utilize the energy – Zack! Belly fat starts. But more belly fat also means more sturgeon molecules for lipid metabolism, which means more belly fat again and more sturgeon molecules again … you can guess how the story goes on.

That's why the belly fat is so dangerous

It comes to overweight. Another burden for the ER, which knows how to help but with a defense reaction of the immune system: it produces inflammatory markers. However, a chronically inflamed body leads to lasting damage. Evidence that TRIP-Br2 is the culprit succeeded the researchers from Chicago in an experiment with laboratory mice. When they switched off the sturgeon molecule in the animals, but continued to feed them with a lot of calories and fat, the mice barely increased. They also showed no inflammatory reactions – and there was no insulin resistance. Now drugs are to be developed that specifically suppress the harmful molecules in humans.

How do I get rid of belly fat?

Not by starving. In fact, in a diet or starvation diet, the body only loses water and subcutaneous fat. The bacon you can only move with a change in your lifestyle to body. Exercise three times a week or at least exercise and a balanced diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, fish and healthy vegetable oils. In this way you lose weight was not fast, but the belly fat is reduced by it.
