Best Way for a Vegan to Lose Belly Fat [Video]

The Best Way for a Vegan to Lose Belly Fat
Educational Video from Dr. Eric Berg
Although the general perception of vegans is that they are healthy and skinny (which bears out in certain scientific studies), there are some vegans who struggle with weight issues, particularly abdominal or belly fat.

This could be due to various reasons including genetics, age, hormones and, of course, lifestyle.  Some vegans are sedentary and do not exercise regularly.  Other vegans make poor vegan food choices.  Not all vegan food is healthy.  Plenty of processed and junk foods qualify as "vegan" but have the same deleterious health effects as non-vegan foods.

In this 8 minute video, Dr. Eric Berg explains what causes the accumulation of belly fat, the role that the hormone insulin plays in visceral fat, and which foods vegans should eat as well as avoid in order to stop gaining and storing belly fat or to begin losing it.

Love your Starbucks Cafe Mocha or Green Tea Latte?  Feel that you might even be addicted?

It turns out that many of these types of drinks are laden with fat and sugar and that's why they taste so good, keep us craving them and coming back for more.

But, according to diet and weight loss experts, combining fat and sugar is one of the surest ways to gain weight, especially belly fat.

Read:  Sugar + Fat = Belly Fat

This fat + sugar complications also leads to higher risks for chronic disease, such as diabetes.

Finally, the experts tells us to be very careful about drinking calories.  Drinking excessive calories is much easier and faster than eating them.  High calorie and high sugar drinks also spike blood sugar levels, which can lead to metabolic disorders.

All this doesn't mean you have to give up your Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha (if you are healthy and don't have weight to lose). But, some of these types of coffee and tea drinks should be thought of and consumed as deserts, as special treats on rare occasions - not something to drink on a daily basis.

As the scientific evidence pours in, more than ever it is very clear that your diet has everything to do with your health status.  Your health status, in turn, impacts your weight and the amount of dangerous, toxic visceral (belly) fat you accumulate.

If you have a weight and/or belly fat problem, holistic and integrative health practitioners will advise you to first and foremost examine your nutrition and diet.  What are you eating?  Are the foods and beverages you are consuming hurting or helping your health (and by extension, your weight)?
