Why Tummy Fats are Hard to Burn. And What Should You Do?

www.healthtap.com
As you age, tummy fats are harder to melt or burn. When you were a teenager or in your early twenties, it was a big wonder why your tummy never changed size despite the way you devoured food, even fatty ones.

But things changed since you reached past 25 or so. It seemed even small bites made you gain weight--and especially, your tummy was slowly gaining size. What happened?

Stomach muscles are hardest to move. Flexing muscles during movement or exercise is a key to burning fat. However, muscles in the tummy are thin and they are hardly involved in majority of the body movements you do. So fats there seldom really get burned.

For instance, lots of folks brisk walk or jog to lose belly fat. They keep doing it for years and their arms, chests, shoulders and legs all lose fat except their tummies. They wonder why their tummies still bulge. I have jogging classmates in our community who have been jogging for years yet remain fat in the middle.

To make matters worse, they stopped eating rice (because they know how rice can make tummies bigger) and substitute that with white bread (which is actually worse). White bread just makes you fatter.

So, what should you do?

Try exercises that move more tummy muscles and add them to your regular regimen. For instance, sit on a stool (with no back rest) with both feet flat on the floor. Then lean backwards, just enough to tense your tummy muscles but not too much to cause back aches.

Hold your tummy as you lean backwards and you'd feel the muscles tensing. That's good. The muscles are squeezing the fats. Also, try holding the leaning position for 5 to 10 seconds before going back to a upright sitting position.

Do it repeatedly, as you can endure, several times a day, daily. After 6 months, see what happens.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

Apple Stem Cell Health Benefits and Why You Need Them

We all know how advanced aging damages skin quality. But plant stem cells, especially from apples, were found to powerfully delay aging and its toll on the skin. This was discovered in many plant stem cell researches.  Stem cells are plant cells extracted from plant stems. As simple as that. So they're all-natural. And they divide and renew themselves continually as long as they're alive. Imagine if your cells are like that. Swiss Malus Domestica Apple plant stem cell (malus domestica) grown and enhanced in Switzerland since the 18th century is most apt for stimulating aging human skin stem cell, lessening unsightly skin wrinkles. It prolongs or extends the life of skin cells so you get a more youthful and radiant look.  When you age your skin cells' ability to divide slows down, unable to create enough new skin cells. So you get lots more of old or dying cells than new cells. These skin cells in your body must be replaced---and here is where the Swiss apple stem cells ent…
