“Taking care of myself is not a sin or being selfish, it is taking care of the best gift God has given me on earth”_”Divine-Royalty”
Everything God created is beautiful, talk more of human being He created in His image and after His likeness! God of all good things cannot create what is ugly. When you are maintaining yourself, you are manifesting God’s purpose, spiritual and physically, because people will see you and glorify your father in heaven, and also admire you. (Who don’t like what is good?)
I have once concluded that big stomach or (pot-belly) is in my tribal nature, after I have done whatever I could to reduce my stomach and nothing happened. Not until I meet a Jamaica friend in a gym who ask me, I have being seeing you in this gym for a while but your stomach are still the same. What is your problem? And I told him, I don’t know what else to do. Then he as me, how do I eat. And I explained . He said “NO!” That the problem is how I eat, and he sit me down and lecture me. “After which” I go and read more about it and become verst.
No one can teach you this in the church and if anyone try it, over spiritual people will tag the person canal minded, but if they want to marry, watch them. They will be looking for gòod looking Sisters.
In my study of life, “forget pretend” I have not seen any man that sees a beautiful woman that does not grance at her for a second time and I have not seen any handsome man that women does not glance at her look for a second time. Awkwardness is not spirituality.
“Women” Men want to see the best (model) in his wife, Or in a woman he want to marry. men is motivated with what they see and does not want to be at the back position in that aspect.
“Men” Away with negative jealous over your Woman, do the necessary thing and you will be her “lord”. Women Is motivated with what they hear, they have hard that gòod body out fit is invoke. They trip with anyone that has it and say something like. I wish it is my man. Moreover, No matter how expensive your cloth is, it will not look good on your body until you keep your fit nice.
Are you a married Woman or Man that said you have married, there is no need of stressing myself going for walkout or gym, keeping fit. I’m very sorry, you are putting sweetness in your marriage to flight mood. Don’t make yourself a cross for someone to carry. Are you a young man or woman that is not taking care of the wonderful body God has put in your care. Men there are some women that knows what they want. Who can take shit. Women, stop running around in prayer houses, no one is after you. “You are your own enemy” stop building a wall and build a bridge because wall can hinder you but bridge can help you to cross over.
If you are long-troth type of human. If you cannot be man or woman enough to embrace self control especially when you see free food, I promise you, you cannot succeed in reducing abdominal fat. It is TOUGH! but become TOUGHER!! When you set something as priority, you can go extra miles
Belly fat is not just a problem because it can look bad. In fact, having lots of fat in the abdominal area is strongly linked to diseases like diabetes and heart disease. For this reason, losing belly fat has massive benefits for your health and can help you live longer.
In women is known as abdominal obesity. If you have a lot of excess fat around your waistline, then you should take some steps to get rid of it even if you’re not very heavy overall.
Fortunately, there are a few proven strategies that have been shown to target the fat in the belly area more than other areas of the body. As I was advise in gym form a friend and what I grab when I read about it.
(1). Avoid sugar-sweetened drinks
(a) Studies show that it has uniquely harmful effects on metabolic health.
(b). Sugar is half glucose, half fructose, and fructose can only be metabolized by the liver in significant amounts.
(c). When you eat a lot of added sugar, the liver gets overloaded with fructose and is forced to turn it into fat.
(d). Numerous studies have shown that excess sugar, mostly due to the large amounts of fructose, can lead to increased accumulation of fat in the belly and liver
(e). Some believe that this is the primary mechanism behind sugar’s harmful effects on health. It increases belly fat and liver fat, which leads to insulin resistance and a host of metabolic problems
(f). Liquid sugar is even worse in this regard. Liquid calories don’t get “registered” by the brain in the same way as solid calories, so when you drink sugar-sweetened beverages, you end up eating more total calories
(g). Studies show that sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to a 60% increased risk of obesity in children, for each daily serving
(h). Make a decision to minimize the amount of sugar in your diet, and consider completely eliminating sugary drinks. This includes sugar-sweetened beverages, sugary sodas, fruit juices and various high-sugar sports drinks.
Keep in mind that none of this applies to whole fruit, which are extremely healthy and have plenty of fiber that mitigates the negative effects of fructose.
The amount of fructose you get from fruit is negligible compared to what you get from a diet high in refined sugar.
If you want to cut back on refined sugar, then you must start reading labels. Even foods marketed as health foods can contain huge amounts of sugar.
(2). Eating more protein is a great long-term strategy to reduce belly fat
Protein is the most important macronutrient when it comes to losing weight.
It has been shown to reduce cravings by 60%, boost metabolism by 80-100 calories per day and help you eat up to 441 fewer calories per day (10, 11, 12, 13).
If weight loss is your goal, then adding protein is perhaps the single most effective change you can make to your diet.
Not only will it help you lose, it also helps you avoid re-gaining weight if you ever decide to abandon your weight loss efforts
(a). There is also some evidence that protein is particularly effective against belly fat.
One study showed that the amount and quality of protein consumed was inversely related to fat in the belly. That is, people who ate more and better protein had much less belly fat
(b). Another study showed that protein was linked to significantly reduced risk of belly fat gain over a period of 5 years
(c). This study also showed that refined carbs and oils were linked to increased amounts of belly fat, but fruits and vegetables linked to reduced amounts.
(d). Many of the studies showing protein to be effective had protein at 25-30% of calories. That’s what you should aim for.
So make an effort to increase your intake of high-protein foods such as whole eggs, fish, seafood, legumes, nuts, meat and dairy products. These are the best protein sources in the diet.
(e). If you struggle with getting enough protein in your diet, then a quality protein supplement (like whey protein) is a healthy and convenient way to boost your total intake.
Consider cooking your foods in coconut oil. Some studies have shown that 30 mL (about 2 tablespoons) of coconut oil per day reduces belly fat slightly.
Eating plenty of protein can boost your metabolism and reduce hunger levels, making it a very effective way to lose weight. Several studies suggest that protein is particularly effective against belly fat accumulation.
(3). Cut carbohydrates from your diet
Carbs restriction is a very effective way to lose fat.
(a). This is supported by numerous studies. When people cut carbs, their appetite goes down and they lose weight
(b). Over 20 randomized controlled trials have now shown that low-carb diets lead to 2-3 times more weight loss than low-fat diets (20, 21, 22).
This is true even when the low-carb groups are allowed to eat as much as they want, while the low-fat groups are calorie restricted and hungry.
Low-carb diets also lead to quick reductions in water weight, which gives people near instant results. A difference on the scale is often seen within 1-2 days.
(c). There are also studies comparing low-carb and low-fat diets, showing that low-carb diets specifically target the fat in the belly, and around the organs and liver (23, 24).
What this means is that a particularly high proportion of the fat lost on a low-carb diet is the dangerous and disease promoting abdominal fat.
Just avoiding the refined carbs (sugar, candy, white bread, etc) should be sufficient, especially if you keep your protein intake high.
However, if you need to lose weight fast, then consider dropping your carbs down to 50 grams per day. This will put your body into ketosis, killing your appetite and making your body start burning primarily fats for fuel.
Of course, low-carb diets have many other health benefits besides just weight loss. They can have life-saving effects in type 2 diabetics, for example.
Studies have shown that cutting carbs is particularly effective at getting rid of the fat in the belly area, around the organs and in the liver
(4). Eat foods rich in fiber, especially viscous fiber
Dietary fiber is mostly indigestible plant matter.
(a) It is often claimed that eating plenty of fiber can help with weight loss.
This is true, but it’s important to keep in mind that not all fiber is created equal.
It seems to be mostly the soluble and viscous fibers that have an effect on your weight
These are fibers that bind water and form a thick gel that “sits” in the gut.
This gel can dramatically slow the movement of food through your digestive system, and slow down the digestion and absorption of nutrients. The end result is a prolonged feeling of fullness and reduced appetite.
(b). One review study found that an additional 14 grams of fiber per day were linked to a 10% decrease in calorie intake and weight loss of 4.5 lbs (2 kg) over 4 months.
(c). In one 5-year study, eating 10 grams of soluble fiber per day was linked to a 3.7% reduction in the amount of fat in the abdominal cavity
(d). What this implies, is that soluble fiber may be particularly effective at reducing the harmful belly fat.
The best way to get more fiber is to eat a lot of plant foods like vegetables and fruit. Legumes are also a good source, as well as some cereals like whole oats.
Then you could also try taking a fiber supplement like glucomannan. This is one of the most viscous dietary fibers in existence, and has been shown to cause weight loss in several studies.
There is some evidence that soluble dietary fiber can lead to reduced amounts of belly fat. This should cause major improvements in metabolic health and reduced risk of several diseases
(5). Exercise is very effective at reducing belly fat
Exercise is important for various reasons.
It is among the best things you can do if you want to live long, healthy life and avoid disease.
(a)Listing all of the amazing health benefits of exercise is beyond measure, exercise does appear to be effective at reducing belly fat.
However, keep in mind that I’m not talking about abdominal exercises here. Spot reduction (losing fat in one spot) is not possible, and doing endless amounts of ab exercises will not make you lose fat from the belly. (That is challenges am facing before I meet a friend and start reading about it).
(b) In one study, 6 weeks of training just the abdominal muscles had no measurable effect on waist circumference or the amount of fat in the abdominal cavity.
(c). That being said, other types of exercise can be very effective.
Aerobic exercise (like walking, running, swimming, etc) has been shown to cause major reductions in belly fat in numerous studies
(d). Another study found that exercise completely prevented people from re-gaining abdominal fat after weight loss, implying that exercise is particularly important during weight maintenance
(e). Exercise also leads to reduced inflammation, lower blood sugar levels and improvements in all the other metabolic abnormalities that are associated with excess abdominal fat.
Exercise can be very effective if you are trying to lose belly fat. Exercise also has a number of other health benefits and can help you live a longer life.
(6). Track your foods and figure out exactly what and how much you are eating. What you eat is important. Pretty much everyone knows this.
However, most people actually don’t have a clue what they are really eating.
People think they’re eating “high protein,” “low-carb” or something else, but tend to drastically over- or underestimate.
I think that for anyone who truly wants to optimize their diet, tracking things for a while is absolutely essential.
It doesn’t mean you need to weigh and measure everything for the rest of your life, but doing it every now and then for a few days in a row can help you realize where you need to make changes.
If you want to boost your protein intake to 25-30% of calories, as recommended above, just eating more protein rich foods won’t be enough. You need to actually measure and fine tune in order to reach that goal.
I personally do this every few months. I weigh and measure everything I eat to see what my current diet looks like.
Then I know exactly where to make adjustments in order to get closer to my goals.
About all after 5.00pm some study said 8.00pm. Don’t eat till the next morning. When you start it. Sometimes it will be as if you are going to die. But you are not gonna die. Persistence will win.
I also watch the pictures and videos of those I admire as my role model. And After which, i get inspired and motivated and it keeps me going because looking good is really nice and I cherish it. The compliment is inspiring and motivational
Years ago, I got a police case of a crime I know nothing about. The police was paid hudge amount of money to torture me. But as God May have it, the IPO that hold my case is a lady. She look at me and said, I cannot hurt this handsome guy. She don’t even allow me to stay inside the jail, instead she keep me in her office and ask me to promise her that I am not going to run away. I promised her and I never did because I am innocent of what they are accusing me. The money they bring to her to torture me, she will use it to get me a nice food and God did for me just as Easter got favour before the King. And at the end they later discovered the truth and say to me, I am sorry!
“May your own beautiful and handsome charm gain you favour in positive sense not negative way.
