How To Reduce Waist Size Fast

Apart from being aesthetically displeasing, the accumulation of fat in the abdomen, is known to be extremely unhealthy, due to the fact that the increased waist size is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and diabetes.

So, is there a diet that can help you
waist size fast?

The reduction in waist size requires reducing your total body fat percentage, so potentially any weight loss diet can be used for that purpose. However, the type of one’s body shape is largely a matter of genetics and if the main area of fat storage in your body is around the waist, then there is no diet in the world that can help you reverse that.

The good news is that there are some ways to slightly increase fat loss from the waist and also prevent the accumulation of fat in the abdomen. It seems that following a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and whole grain products that is also low in red meat, fast food and soft drinks is associated with a lower waist circumference.

The hormone cortisol is also a factor. High cortisol levels have also been correlated with insulin resistance and abdominal obesity. Therefore, stress is among the factors that lead to the accumulation of fat in the abdomen. What is more, the link between insulin resistance and increased waist size goes both ways. In other words, increased waist circumference causes insulin resistance and insulin resistance causes an increase in waist size.

This makes it obvious that a diet of low glycemic index, which leads to decreased insulin secretion and reduces insulin resistance, can prevent the increase in waist circumference. The conclusion is that a low glycemic index diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, lean sources of protein and whole grains may be the key to a more harmonious fat distribution.

To put all that into practice, it would be a good idea to start your day with a breakfast that is rich in protein and fiber. This will reduce your appetite for unhealthy snacks throughout the day. According to many studies, low protein intake in the morning leads to the increased consumption of high glycemic index foods that increase insulin secretion and lead to the accumulation of fat into the abdomen. On the contrary, it seems that people who consume enough protein for breakfast to dinner, experience increased satiety and eat less food throughout the day.
