3 Veggies That Fight Abdominal/Visceral Fat?
There is a specific class of vegetables that contain very unique phytonutrients that help to fight against stubborn belly fat which is the internal visceral fat that is toxic and can set you up to age faster and have a higher risk of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, auto immune and cancer.
Check out how these unique vegetables help to burn stomach fat...
But firstly check out the chemicals that force your body to hold onto belly fat.
Certain chemicals in our food supply and our environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, plastics, cosmetics, etc can react with your hormones and make your body store excess abdominal fat.
These harmful chemicals are known as xenoestrogens. Xenoestrogens are chemicals that you are exposed to (and are hard to avoid in this polluted world) that have an estrogenic effect in your body. Excess exposure can cause hormone balance disruptions for both men and women. So if you thought this was just for the guys, these chemicals can wreak havoc in the body for both guys and girls.
These estrogenic chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis can stimulate your body to store belly fat, along with many other problems (including cancer risk in the long term). These chemicals are stored in fat cells to get them out of harms way; You can have a life time of these chemicals that have built up in your tissues and fat. The muffin top and pot gut are the giveaway signs.
This is where this specific class of vegetables are so helpful.
One of the strategies that I teach my clients in a presentation or private consultation is the use of cruciferous vegetables to help fight against stomach fat and disease.
Cruciferous vegetables such as:
- brussel sprout
Plus kale, spinich, bok choy, cabbage etc
These contain very specific and unique phytonutrients such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that help to fight against these estrogenic compounds... By fighting against these belly fat stimulating estrogenic chemicals, This is just 1 more step in helping you to win the battle against abdominal/visceral fat and disease!
These are some of the excellent reasons to eat more brussel sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower and the other green and nutrient dense veggies!
Although this class of vegetables may be a super-healthy choice for achieving your lean, strong, visceral fat free and energetic body...they do contain harmful pesticides and fertilisers so organic or home grown are always best to get away from the chemicals.
Happy munching and watching that stubborn belly fat dissapear.
