5 "Innocent" Habits That Increase Your Belly Fat

5 "Innocent" Habits That Increase Your Belly Fat

With over 50+ years of combined experience, our coaches, trainers, AND Chris and Heidi have always taught this major truth…

Weight loss isn’t about dramatic lifestyle changes, but small, sustainable changes.

But unfortunately, this truth also has a downside to it…

Because you’re sabotaging your weight loss goals with small, “innocent” habits without even realizing it!

On the surface, many of these habits don’t SEEM harmful, but each one is increasing your belly fat! 😱

Let’s talk about what these “innocent” habits are, and how you can make small, meaningful changes to accelerate your weight loss TODAY!

1. Eating While Distracted

A team from the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom scoured the medical literature for studies that have looked at how attention and memory affect food intake. [1]

All of these studies had at least two groups, such as one group that ate a particular meal while watching television and another that ate the same meal without television.

They learned two important truths:

  1. Being distracted or not paying attention during a meal tends to make you eat more.
  2. Paying attention to your meal is linked to eating less later on.

This means that, the more mindful you are when eating your meals, the less you’ll eat, making your weight loss goals will be much more attainable!

2. Eating Too Fast

You’re busy, always rushing from one place to another, and always with a million things on your to-do list.

We certainly understand how that feels. 😅

But it’s important to slow down, and mindfully eat your meals to achieve your weight loss goals.

This is because it takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to send the signal to your brain that you’re full. [2]

If you’re eating too fast, it’s hard to catch that signal. Plus, eating too quickly causes you to swallow more air, which can cause bloating and gas. Bleh.

So remember, when you’re eating, take the time to chew slowly and mindfully!

3. Skipping Meals

It’s a common misconception that skipping meals will help you lose weight.

But that couldn’t be any further from the truth!

In fact, studies have shown that the opposite is true! [3]

Because skipping meals, particularly breakfast, is closely correlated with obesity! That’s because skipping a meal can cause your metabolism to slow down, which can cause you to gain weight and make it harder to lose weight! [4]

So, if you’re thinking about skipping breakfast, just grab a quick Meal Replacement Shake instead. 😉

4. Poor Sleep Habits

Yes, if you’re not getting enough sleep, then you will find weight loss much more difficult!

In adults, sleeping 4 hours a night, as compared to 10 hours a night, appears to increase hunger and appetite. [5]

And many observational studies have also shown a link between sleep restriction and obesity!

So next time you think about watching another episode, just turn it off and get some rest.

Your body will thank you.

5. Not Getting Enough Movement

Physical activity levels are declining not just in the U.S., but across the world! [6]

And when you’re trying to lose weight, it’s absolutely CRUCIAL for you to increase your activity level.

But we’re not talking about going to the gym for hours at a time...

Exercising for just 10 minutes a day can have incredible health benefits!

When you start to increase your activity level to just 10 minutes a day, you will [6]:

  • Increase your energy expenditure, helping you lose weight
  • Help you control your weight and increase lean muscle
  • Reduce depression and anxiety levels

Again, you don’t have to go bust your butt at the gym every day, just increase your activity level a little bit each day!
