Big deep breaths in through your nose, and out through your mouth slowly. That's how you relax and relieve the stress build up that causes the release of the hormone cortizone, causing that middle belly fat. Calories need oxygen to up-the-burn in your metabolism.
Your calories are distributed in the body for certain functions daily. Here's the break down:
75% basic needs
15% activity ( or lack of, stores it in empty fat cells)
100% percent of what you eat is your choice, do the right thing, and use up the 15% for spending time just moving around more than usual. Who wants to take the advice of a fat person? Me, I am trying to remind myself out loud, how quickly I forget my own suggestions.
