Most of us dream of having a flat stomach, so much so that for some it becomes an obsession.
No matter how many crunches you do or what kind of diet you eat, that fat is always there surrounding your midsection like a belt you don't want.
Do you feel identified with that?
Well, I'm telling you that you could suffer from non-alcoholic fatty liver, a disease that is rarely talked about, but that affects millions of apparently healthy people, changing their figure and increasing the chances of developing other more complicated ailments.
Few symptoms, many consequences
When we feel fatigue, abdominal pain or heaviness after meals, we usually associate it with indigestion, stress or even the flu.
But if these discomforts are repeated frequently and worsen, you could suffer from non-alcoholic fatty liver.
And if you also have a bulging abdomen, high levels of insulin, triglycerides and cholesterol... Be very careful!
Fatty liver disease and abdominal fat are not the same. The first is nothing more than the excessive accumulation of fat and inflammation of the liver. If it is treated in a timely manner, it can be fought quickly, but if you let a long time pass, it can lead to more complicated ailments such as cirrhosis of the liver and even cancer.
A lifestyle-related epidemic
Non-alcoholic fatty liver is more common than you might think.
It is believed that 20% of the population suffers from it and in the United States, the figure corresponds to about 100 million people, which is considered an epidemic figure.
It does not discriminate against race or age and is more common between 40 and 59 years of age. Most associate it with high alcohol consumption but it is not.
It's associated with something known as metabolic syndrome, which is a cluster of factors that also increases the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Those factors are:
✓ High cholesterol.
✓ Excess abdominal fat.
✓ Insulin resistance.
✓ And deterioration of intestinal health.
All of this has a lot or everything to do with bad habits and unhealthy lifestyles.
Why is it so hard for you to lose your belly if you have NAFLD?
One theory is that insulin resistance is created by making it difficult for the pancreas to produce enough to remove sugar from the blood.
And do you know what happens with excess sugar? It becomes fat that accumulates there, right in the abdominal area.
You choose: prevent or treat
To find out if you have non-alcoholic fatty liver you need to perform some special tests.
Until now there is no drug that cures this condition, but we can prevent it or minimize its impact.
So get to work.
To get rid of that extra fat that resists exercises and diets. Create healthy routines and turn them into life habits.
get active with exercise
Any physical activity can help you. Cardiovascular exercises such as running, cycling, swimming, jumping rope, or going up and down stairs. Also high-intensity exercises such as functional circuits or HIITS... Or if you're just starting out, choose something you like and gradually incorporate it to maintain enthusiasm and move forward.
Eat healthy and balanced
This is one of the most important points to avoid the accumulation of fat in the liver.
Forget about processed foods such as sugars and flours, as well as saturated and trans fats.
✓ Include fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your diet, because they are rich in vitamins and fiber.
✓ Some research recommends certain foods and drinks such as olive oil, avocado and nuts.
✓ Also antioxidants such as green tea and include between 10 and 14 grams of fiber a day in your diet...
✓ Avoid miraculous or lightning diets.
Lean on supplementation
Many studies have shown that there are food supplements that facilitate the reduction of liver fat and therefore the risk of suffering from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. So I'm going to mention some of them.
Eye! If you have already been diagnosed with the disease or suspect that you may have it, consult your doctor. Here we go:
Helps reduce liver fat by up to 20% in obese women. It is recommended to take at least 10 grams of whey protein 30 minutes before meals to reduce insulin spikes that occur after eating.
It is an herb known for its protective effects on the liver and has been shown to regenerate healthy liver cells.
It is an antioxidant with anti-cancer properties, which also positively influences more than 586 diseases.
It is also associated with the reduction of liver fat, the reduction of the body mass index, and the levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose.
It is the precursor to glutathione (the master antioxidant). Stimulates liver function and strengthens the immune system.
It is a tonic that works as a liver protector.
At Evolution Advance Nutrition we have verified through studies and scientific evidence that ALL these ingredients are as effective as they are healthy.
For this reason they are an essential part of some of our formulas.
In addition, you can get the other 4 ingredients that I just mentioned through our Detox.
