Banish Belly Fat – It’s killing you

Published on 11th Jun 2017

Excess abdominal belly fat is not only distorting your physical appearance, it’s increasing your risk of mortality by 17% for every 2 inches over 37 inches, if you’re a man and it’s increasing your risk of mortality by 13% for every 2 inches over 31 inches for a woman.

In-depth research on 350,000 people across Europe established that waist size in combination with your body fat% is the most accurate way of determining your health. Having a large waist is dramatically increasing your chances of dying prematurely. Adipose Visceral Fat (AVF) is fat stored around your organs. It’s not just affecting the way you look. It’s affecting the way you feel. It could be preventing you from losing weight or fat from other parts of your body.

Visceral Fats stored in the stomach are actively secreting hormones and other compounds into your bloodstream. It’s 24 hours a day, 7 days per week process. They are responsible for causing Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and related Cancers just to name a few. Excessive abdominal fat: it doesn’t feel good. It doesn’t look good either.

Metabolic Syndrome, has reached pandemic proportions according to research at Virginia University. Its complex clustering of physical/metabolic problems are associated with ageing. Men over 40 with waist sizes in excess of 37 inches and women over 40 with waist sizes over 31 inches with just a few of the following: high visceral and subcutaneous abdominal fat, high blood pressure, low HDL levels, high LDL levels and high fasting blood glucose, run a high risk of Metabolic Syndrome.

These individuals find it difficult to lose fat, especially visceral abdominal fat. They tend to find it difficult to metabolise carbohydrates and fats. They don’t respond well to general exercise. In fact low intensity endurance type training actually increased visceral fat levels in many individuals according to research from the American College of Sports Medicine. It has established that even in this difficult group of people high intensity exercise induced far greater reductions in abdominal visceral fat when compared to other forms of training.

Why was weight training found to be MORE EFFECTIVE? The research has shown it to greatly increase post exercise levels of fat liberating hormones, epinephrine and growth hormone. It’s not about how many calories we burn during exercise. It’s the post exercise metabolism that counts. These hormones continue to burn fat for 12-24 hours after exercise has finished. So do your health and body a favour once and for all and take action now.

What Our Clients Say:

"Walking out of New You approx. 14 weeks later was easy. The whole world seemed different, I weighed 60lbs less, I was lighter on my feet having much more energy. Weighing 13 stone 5lbs with a 37.5 inch waist, felt great. Having lots more muscle tone, that felt even better. I am now significantly stronger tighter and fitter than ever before." - David Kiely

"After 12 weeks of 6am starts, constant attention from John, good pains and a well-balanced diet... I love what I have become. I couldn't believe that I fitted back into my leather trousers that I couldn't pull up above my knees. And boy do they fit well! I suppose losing 12 kg of body fat and over 8 inches from my waist whilst gaining nearly 2 kg of muscle had to make a difference. " - Caroline

"Its nearly 11 months since I started with New You. I haven’t put any weight back on, in fact I have continued to get considerably leaner lighter stronger and fitter.* I weigh just over 13 stone, my body fat is now under 15% which makes me pretty athletic, my waist is down to 32 inches and my lean tissue has continued to improve." - Colin Duffy

"Walking through the doors of NEW YOU for the first time was extremely difficult. At 55-years of age I had very little confidence and low self esteem. Twelve weeks later I walked out of NEW YOU a completely different person. I had dropped 37lbs of body fat, which meant I had gone from just over 11 stone to 8 and a half stone." - Yvonne

"I would like to thank my trainer and the medical support from New You and all the team who took a keen interest in my results. Also a special thanks to my mother Christine who got me started and supported me all the way. I have to say that one of the life changing moments I have had besides everything else… is to be able to buy clothes off the peg." - Kieran Smith
