So as everyone knows I’m a new aerobic instructor, and lately I have been thinking about how I look determines how my class will feel. So I’ve been trying to figure out what type of diet to get on or better yet what kinds of things can I take out of my normal eating habits to increase my weight loss. So I’ve decided that I must get rid of the bad chocolate, I saw where eating dark chocolate was better for you, “Dark chocolate is good for your heart. A small bar of it every day can help keep your heart and cardiovascular system running well. Two heart health benefits of dark chocolate are lower blood pressure, lower your cholestorol” so who knew that it was actually good for you, next I have to reduce how much bread I eat (because I am a bread lover), at least reduce it down to 100% wheat bread, and only have a limit of how much I am going to eat. I am not going to be someone who is going to talk about “This is my New Year’s resolution” because that’s not what I want to start doing, putting a limit on this new and upcoming year, but what I am going to do is take better care of myself and live a healthier, active life.
So I was going thru my email and came across this article about “The Hidden Dangers of Your Excess Abdominal Fat - It's More Serious Than a Vanity Issue! “ By Mike Geary, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer the article tells you how the two different types of fat in your stomach are deadly, okay first of all I didn’t even know there was 2 types, so know I got to worry about an extra layer, I thought fat was fat, but was I wrong. I will include the article below so that everyone can get some important information pertaining to that good ole belly fat.
[There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.
The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.
Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases] (Geary)
