Belly fat is not as difficult to get rid of as you may think.
If you're like most of us in our midlife years, there's been an instance where you've retrieved that comfortable pair of jeans from your closet only to be disappointed to discover they've mysteriously shrunk? How is that possible? It seems like only yesterday you were sporting that trim figure and rockin' those jeans?
As disconcerting as it may feel, you suddenly realize that your body shape isn't quite what it used to be. While the unenlightened few may concede defeat, you and I cast aside our dismay and take determined action to shed our unwanted belly fat.
But where does one start? Exercise, diet? It all seems so daunting. Well, guess what, I'm here to tell you it doesn't have to be difficult.
I was in my mid 40's when someone shared with me what I'm about to share with you. And what they shared, made sense!
It breaks down into 2 major factors we ALL face on a daily basis. Environmental toxicity and nutrition depletion.
Chemicals reside in EVERYTHING we eat, drink or breathe due to the 21st century realities of food production, shipping regulations and the ways of the world. Antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, hormones ... you name it. It's out there AND in our belly fat.
As we introduce these nutrient deficient foods into our bodies our liver will produce additional belly fat to protect us and store the toxins safely away from our system.
As a result you'll never maintain your optimum weight and health until you can CLEANSE the body of this toxicity and replace it with the nutrients your body craves.
Cleansing WITH nutrition. That made sense to me!
The environment has provided us with nourishment and energy for millions of years. Simply being exposed to sunlight and fresh clean air makes a difference in how we feel.
In the not-so-distant past there was a general feeling that the natural supply system was infinite and the vastness of the environment could absorb the human waste through natural assimilation.
With increasing populations and synthetic production, the earth's limitations have become increasingly apparent. The NEED TO CLEAN and be green mentality has risen to the forefront.
The concept of sustaining health by controlling pollution and maintaining the biosphere has been accepted as critical to our survival as a species.
Why is it, I often ponder, when I broach the subject of cleansing the "pollution" from our own personal "environment", that I receive blank, skeptical stares as if I were hawking the latest incantation of snake oil to unsuspecting neophytes.
Cleansing our bodies of toxins while replacing it with nutrition makes sense but in order for it to be valued and practiced, individuals must be knowledgeable and educated on it's usefulness, benefits and the contributions it makes to the quality of our lives.
Cleansing is a systematic, science-based process that purges unwanted matter in order to prevent harmful or adverse effects. Effective cleaning reduces this exposure to hazardous matter, reduces your risk of developing disease and prevents the onset of dreaded belly fat.
It is much easier to manage our "own house" than to influence society where the causes and control of pollutants are much more complex. Yet, our national attention to a great extent, seems to be focused on our outside environment rather than our inside environment.
I understand. We all want to make a difference in the world and to know our lives mean something. However, helping others is much harder to achieve if your current personal situation doesn't align with your outward cause.
How can one save the world's biology while your own biology falls by the wayside.
Before you can help others you must first take care of yourself.
If we ALL did our own personal part, the world could be ALL OF THE ABOVE.
