It seems that the majority of people gain weight around the midsection. This has many potential causes and factors that may be involved. We know for example, that people under stress secrete a hormone called cortisol from the adrenal glands. This hormone, to excess, can cause weight gain especially around the midsection.
People who are calorie sensitive, in other words those that consume more calories than they burn, tend to also retain weight around the belly, hips, and thighs. This seems to be a problem for both men and women. Unfortunately, there is no way to lose weight in one spot only. This concept is called spot reducing and it is virtually impossible to achieve, so when we lose weight, we lose it from head to toe. Unfortunately, since we oftentimes have more fat cells around our midsection it appears that we are not losing weight in the areas we would like as effectively. There are several things that you can do however. Firstly, be sure you are following the right weight management program for your body’s metabolism and type.
Secondly, if you find yourself under excess stress you might want to consider taking a stress supplement that provides the B complex as well as factors to nourish and support the adrenal glands. Doing so can often reduce the production of excess cortisol and thereby help to lose weight especially in the midsection. There are also many supplements that can contribute to appetite control, helping us to consume less food overall. When we are dieting we most often ingest fewer nutrients than when we are not. For this reason it is essential to take a good full-spectrum supplement, preferably in liquid form, to ensure that starvation hormones are not produced. A full-spectrum formula would address all the needs of the body for both men and women including stress supplements, healthy aging supplements, vitality supplements for men, and the best vitamins for energy. Our specialized supplement for all these conditions is called Blood Sugar Support.
