Men’s pot bellies usually has to do with the wrong food diet and lack of exercise, and that can turn on you quickly, producing too much excess insulin (from to much sugar in the diet and not enough exercise) depositing FAT into your GUT! Abdominal fat is different and more dangerous than fat elsewhere. Unlike fat under the skin, Belly Fat adheres to Organs and is associated with ( CRP) C reactive protein, just one of the markers of inflammation. Even worse, would be when your pancreas burns out over the years of producing excess insulin, that will begin to build up in your arteries resulting in possible heart attack and strokes.
These are some of the steps people can take to overcome this problem!
Drink at least 16oz of water when you rise in the morning as that will help flush toxins out. Drink at least a gallon of water throughout the day. Eat in reverse! a LARGE hearty healthy breakfast, eat a MEDIUM Lunch, and then eat a small Dinner, unlike most people who normally eat ( light breakfast- medium lunch -heavy dinner late at night.)
When you eat a healthy breakfast of whole grains, cereal, proteins, fruit, (not bacon-home fries-sausage-burgers-pancakes etc)it will get you energized for the start of day and sustain you until lunch time. People who eat a protein rich breakfast of around 600 or more calories lose more weight than those that consume less than 300 for breakfast. Don’t be tempted to snack on Junk food in between. There’s no nutritive value, just calories and that will increase your sugar level.
Lunch! Try a peanut-butter sandwich with maybe some Honey, even one at around 3pm will give you the necessary whole grains and muscle building protein to give you the energy to work out in the afternoon or evening, and of course you won’t need that big dinner.
Dinner! The thing about dinner is people tend to eat too much and too late in the evening resulting in food turning to sugar, turning too fat while lying motionless for 8 or more hours. It’s beneficial to eat something light for dinner. Eating a small colorful salad with some virgin olive oil and vinegar will help slow the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. This prevents spikes in blood sugar and insulin which signals the body to store fat. Maybe add some tuna for protein and a piece of fruit. Set a goal to not to eat after 7 -7-30pm and drink water before bed.
