How to Lose Belly Fat – Is Targeting Possible?
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to pick and choose where your body gets rid of fat? Of course we ALL know that’s not really possible… or have we been wrong all this time?
New research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicate that optimal amounts of calcium and vitamin D actually did change the zone of fat loss between two groups who essentially lost the same amount of weight. Those who had additional amounts of these two nutrients lost more of the fat from around their organs than the other group.
As it turns out, the fat that accumulates around your organs is much more detrimental to your health than fat accumulation in other areas of the body. This is referred to as visceral adipose tissue or VAT.
Be sure you are getting adequate calcium in your diet and sunlight exposure.
Use this calculator to calculate the approximate time needed in direct sunlight to get adequate vitamin D.
Or, to make it super easy, take a pharmaceutical-grade supplement from a trusted manufacturer.
For me personally, I love getting outside as often as I can, and I make sure I supplement!
Yours in Health,
