Belly Fat

Belly Fat is a problem that many of us have, it sometimes stays behind when we lose weight, whether we want to admit it or not.

We might try to hide it, or we might deny it, but we know that it is there.

It makes us feel self-conscious and even uncomfortable at times.

The problem many have found with belly fat is it will not go away, no matter what we do!

You are not alone, if you find yourself caught in this trap…

In fact, it is a widespread problem due  to the fact  so many people have NOT a single working clue about  how to get rid of it.   What it looks like to Not have Belly Fat….dream come true!

What can I do about Belly Fat?

You might be in what seems to be a losing battle with belly fat, but you can turn things around by following these tips.

  • First off, you cannot shed that belly fat just by eating healthy
  • You also have to exercise.
  • This does not  mean stomach exercises, either

You have to get your cardiovascular system going by doing aerobic type  exercise.

You can get your metabolism going by jogging, walking, bicycling, or swimming several  days a week.

To make it simple, plan on walking or bicycling 30 minutes each day.
This is vital if you want to shed that pesky flab.

What Exercise Will Get Rid of Belly Fat?

The fact is, you need to work out all parts of your body – not just your stomach.

It is absurd to believe that you can burn belly fat by doing curls or squats, because it just doesn’t happen!

A full-body workout will help your body optimize its ability to burn fat.

You do not have to do intense, life-changing workouts in order to work out all parts of your body.

  • Find something you enjoy, and then stick with it!
  • Plan to exercise 30 minutes every day.
  • Make a choice or mix it up
  • Walk every day
  • Ride a bicycle
  • Bad Weather solutions:
  • Indoor exercycle
  • Walk in the Mall

And finally, you can add in those stomach exercises that you thought from the start you would be told to do.  That is if you wish.

Mix up these exercises, doing crunches, sit-ups, and other ab exercises, instead of just picking one thing and sticking to it.

But again, if losing weight is your first priority, don’t add a heavy duty gym workout to your schedule.

The reason is you will begin to build muscle in your stomach and even though you are burning  fat down there all at the same time, overall weight loss will stall.  Belly still there!

You cannot win the battle against belly fat if all you do is eat healthy and do stomach workouts, even though each of these is important.

Find a way that you can fit in your full-body workouts and your aerobic exercises, setting up a schedule that will allow you to do this.

In time, that belly fat will start to melt away, and you will be happier and happier with the way you look!

Here is a quote from the Diet Manual from a well know diet.  I have a copy of the whole 45 page manual that you can download as a gift.  NO selling, just free!  (directions for downloading at bottom of this page).

What the Body Needs and What it Doesn’t
Our bodies need nutrients, vitamins, minerals and water for good health and proper functioning.

This diet alone will produce amazing weight loss. However,
by following the exercise program, we can nearly double our weight loss goals, while
obtaining some very favorable body composition changes.

 

It goes on to discuss exercise as a component of body needs.  Also the fact is our body is quite capable of obtaining most of its nutritional  needs from the food we eat.

Just something I have noticed:  Actually, Belly Fat can be a symptom of a disease or an indicator  one is working it way into your body.  More on that later.

A Look at Paula Deen and Diabetes 2

Didn’t get to watch Paul Deen on TV this morning, talking about her Diabetes 2.  I was up late and sort of over slept! 

I’ve often wondered, when watching her show, if she ate all the time like she cooks, or was just giving people recipes and ways to cook foods that are Very Southern and need to be seasoned and cooked in a certain way to duplicate what her Mother or Grandmother did to change these staples around a little and make Dinner time a little festive.

I grew up on a backwoods farm in the “Foot Hills of the Smokey Mountains” in North Western South Carolina.  For the most part, the farm was self sufficient.  There was No electricity, No running water (had a spring down in the “holler”) until they finally dug a well next to the back porch and therefore no refrigeration so my Grandmother spent a lot of time canning, pickling and drying fruits and vegetables for later use.  In the fall Grandpa dug a pit in the middle of the smoke house, lined it with straw and then Apples, Pumpkins, Onions, Turnip roots, sometimes a few green tomatoes, hard squash and a water melon or two were stored wrapped in straw, if they had survived  8 kids, the rabbits and the birds!

Some of these processes…like making pickles and sauerkraut involved a lot of salt.  So did the meat preservation…Grandpa and our Uncle would slaughter the Hogs, then they were butchered and placed in the smoke house which had shelves laden with salt so it was heaped over the meat and the hams and shoulders were hung up on the rafters.  They then smoked the meat for days.  I don’t know for how long or even how they knew when it was time to stop! I can just remember the smoke curling out of the vents they had placed in the smoke house and that wonderful smell…like bacon!

But back to Paula Deen and her Southern Cooking.  Even if she is from Georgia, there is a great similarity in the farm food or Southern as you might want to classify it in South Carolina and Georgia.  Since we had cows, chickens, the pigs and really a lot of wild game:  deer, possum, raccoon and of course squirrel and rabbit, a cook had to be on her toes to make meals, then get it all eaten up before it spoiled as you had no freezer or refrigerator.

As a general rule anything fresh was used first, this included “sweet”  milk, eggs, butter, butter milk and any fresh meat.  Chicken wasn’t on the menu often, unless we had a lot of roosters cause my GrandMa liked her eggs for making breakfast, pancakes, cakes and muffins which also used up some of the butter.  There was a spring house that had been built in the spring that would help to keep milk and butter cool so they didn’t spoil so quickly but they did not have  a long shelf life.

Then you get down to the Shortening thing.  When the Hogs were slaughtered, the fat was “rendered”, strained and stored in shiny metal cans.  The little scraps tuned into Chittlings which were used for seasoning, making cornbread with them in it or for black eyed peas or white beans.  But the fat was used for all the frying of meats, okra, potatoes and sometimes little apple pies.  It was  mixed in with the flour to make biscuits, greased the black cast iron skillets and the  black Iron Wood burning stove in the kitchen all to keep them from rusting.

Nothing much was wasted. 

While a lot of people used the intestines of the hogs to make chittlings,  most of ours were the trimmings off the meat because Grandma used the long intestines (turned inside out and scraped) to make sausage links that were hung in the smoke house, smoked and then stored on the shelves in their bed of salt.  This all took place as fast as you could do it.  They usually waited for a cold day to begin this process as it helped control  “spilage.”  Of course the Liver, Kidneys and Heart all had to be cooked and eaten unless small amounts were included in the sausage, but Grandma didn’t usually because they spoiled so easily.  There was a woman across the hill who got all the blood (caught in a milk pail and delivered) and sometimes a liver because she made Blood Sausage which my Grandma didn’t like.  She and her husband  would slaughter a cow once a year and swap beef for pork with all the neighbors.

We ate what we had. 

Corn was taken to Salem where a man had a water turned  Grist Mill and made it into grits and cornmeal.  No money exchanged hands.  He kept part of the corn for his pay and sold either the corn, grits or meal to others.  Grandma also made Hominy which again involves a lot of salt! 

About the only things we did buy were Real Mayonnaise, Sugar, Coffee, Luizianne Tea (Grandma liked the dishes they gave away), Salt, Pepper, a few spices and occasionally a loaf of  “lightening” bread  the name they used for just plain white Merita Bread which was a treat for sandwiches instead of using left over breakfast biscuits with  ham, bacon or sausage for lunch sandwiches.

But I have strayed away from Paula Deen and her Diabetes 2.  I know from the personal experience of living with a diagnosis of Type 2 or Adult Onset Diabetes that the only REAL way to live with diabetes is to control it with: 1. weight loss, 2. exercise, 3. scheduled eating times and integrate 4. Meal planning into your way of life.   There are several articles on this site that go into more details on these 4 important items.  Or check the RSS feeds on the side for relevant information.

As Paula  explained in her interview this morning (through the magic of computers and the internet I went and watched a rerun)  She has never eaten like she cooks on the show for the most part.  There are only about 30 shows per year and she was including Southern  “treat” or special recipes which are usually sweet or loaded with butter.  As I explained above…use up what you have before it spoils.

As the Doctor who was also on the show explained, there are predispositions to Diabetes which include:  Race, being overweight, not getting enough exercise, and having a sibling or parent with Diabetes as there is a genetic factor associated with Diabetes.  Also age can be factored in because as you age your metabolism tends to slow so it is easy to NOT exercise enough to burn off extra calories.  I have also noticed that abdominal fat accumulated faster than fat on arms and legs.  Is that the Diabetes or is the Fat the Diabetes?

It is still true:  You are What You Eat.

I wish Paula much success in her Fight with Diabetes, because that is what it is.  You can let it take over your life, or you can figure out what you need to do to win the battle with Diabetes 2.  It doesn’t mean you have to count every last calorie or even eliminate foods you like from your diet.  What it means is that you do some planning, pay attention to your caregiver and Educate yourself about Diabetes.  It is you and your body and your Future, so decide what you want and go for it.

I will say, if you want to succeed at controlling and  hopefully eliminating  diabetes and all its sneaky side effects from you life, you are going to need to pay attention to what you have learned and act on it.  Not on the adgenda is overeating, sitting on the couch watching TV or playing video games, not taking any medication you have been prescribed or in general just ignoring that you have Diabetes.

Diabetes is what I call a Sneaky Disease. 

You don’t hurt, the visible symptoms are tiredness, lack of energy, fatigue, frequent thirst and urination (especially at night) sometimes urgency and later blurred vision to name a few.  Occasionally if left untreated there is a sudden unexplained weight loss, but as you could see Paula has not had this symptom.  Neither did I.  As I get older, keeping my weight in check is still a chore if I overeat and don’t get in my daily exercise.

Just for your information, I have included a small part of the video rebroadcast of Paula Deen’s interview this morning.  My only advise to you is Read, Search, Learn and Apply what you have learned.   You are still What you Eat and Success can be yours if you make up your mind that YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!
