Five habits leading to the emergence of "crunch"


The German Nutrition Association reported that there are some misconceptions that lead to the accumulation of abdominal fat.

1- Lack of sleep

Lack of sleep produces more cortisol steroid hormone, which is responsible for eating cravings, and to lower the level of cortisol you should sleep for between seven and eight hours at night.

2- Drink sweetened beverages

The large sugar content found in sweetened beverages increases the desire to eat, and light drinks are not a solution, as they also increase appetite, but it is better to drink water than these drinks.

3- Eat low-fat foods

German nutritionists have warned that foods on their packagings are usually high in sugar, and instead, they should eat other foods that contain healthy fats such as nuts, avocados, eggs, and fish.

Healthy fathas an anti-inflammatory effect, helps reduce abdominal fat and protect the vessels, and helps to feel full.

4- Sitting for long periods

Prolonged sitting slows down metabolism and circulation, discouraging fat-burning enzymes, and German experts recommend combining movement and activity during everyday tasks, such as walking instead of taking a ride, climbing the ladder instead of an escalator.

5. Eating late

When you eat shortly before bedtime, it straining the stomach because it's too busy to digest. Nor are they performing their functions optimally. Experts recommend that you do not eat any food two hours before bed so that fat does not accumulate in the abdominal area.
