Don't let stubborn belly fat get you down
Consuming food high in sugars and carbohydrates (complex sugar) increases the blood glucose level in our bodies, resulting in a spike in insulin level as the body’s reflex reaction to regulate/maintain the glucose level in the blood. Insulin inhibits the breakdown of fat cells and stimulate the creation of body fat; insulin stops your body from burning its fat stores and instead, absorb some of the fatty acids and glucose in the blood stream and turn them into more body fat. In short, eating foods high in sugars and carbs will switch on fat-storing mode in your body, and you will find that it is almost impossible to get rid of the belly fat!
