Will Sit-Ups Get Rid of My Belly Fat? By Jennifer R. Scot

sit ups to reduce belly fat

Many exercisers wonder if sit ups burn belly fat. If you’re like most frustrated exercisers, you do countless crunches and see only a small result. It may cause you to question the purpose of sit ups. Well, wonder no more. Here’s the low down on the popular exercise. Find out what sit ups can and can not do for your belly before you invest any more time or energy.

Sit Ups and Belly Fat

Belly fat can be especially difficult to reduce. For many people, the abdominal area is where much of their excess fat is located. It’s not impossible to get rid of tummy fat but you have to be patient.

Unfortunately, you can’t reduce the fat in your abdomen by doing sit-ups alone. Spot reducing, or doing exercises to get rid of fat in a targeted area, is not effective. When you exercise, you can’t choose where you lose fat. But that doesn’t mean that doing sit-ups is a waste of your time.

The Purpose of Sit Ups

Abdominal exercises like the sit up, or the abdominal crunch, serve a very important function. These exercises strengthen and tone the muscles in your belly area. This area is often called your core. It’s the area between your rib cage and your hip bones.

When you strengthen your core, you improve the way that your body moves during the day. Your posture improves and daily activities (like lifting heavy objects) become easier to manage. Having a strong core may help you to stay more active during the day—which can help you to burn more calories and lose weight faster.

Building muscles with sit-ups can also help to improve the appearance of your belly. But if you carry fat in your abdomen, the muscles will not show. Instead, they will be buried under a layer of fat. So to get a flatter belly, you need to do sit-ups alongside a fat-reduction program.

How to Reduce Tummy Belly Fat 

You can measure your waist circumference to see if you need to reduce belly fat. Reducing the fat that you carry in the midsection may help to reduce your risk for disease. But most people also feel that it makes them look better. And most people feel better when they lose excess weight.

With a combination of

5 Major Health Benefits of Yoga Top 5 Amazing Benefits of Yoga By Djohny Alexandre

Yoga is one of the simplest forms of exercise you can do to improve your health, mind, and body. All you need is a yoga mat, and some comfortable clothing or none if you prefer naked yoga!

Research shows that adding this ancient practice into your lifestyle can help boost your brain and heart health as well as the body strength and flexibility— just to name a few.

To put simply, there is not a thing yoga can not improve!

So if you’ve have been thinking about getting started, here are five reasons to motivate and propel you forward.

1. Improves Your Flexibility

If you’ve ever watched a yoga class or people doing yoga poses, one thing you probably noticed is that they pretty flexible.

Especially performing poses such as the downward facing dog, seated forward bend, and standing forward fold.

This doesn’t mean you need to be flexible to do yoga, but if you practice regularly and stick with it, you’ll notice a gradual increase in your flexibility. And eventually, seemingly impossible poses will become a piece of cake.

In addition to an improvement in your flexibility, aches and pains will start to disappear, which is often associated with tight

The Super Superfood You’re Probably Not Eating Five good reasons to add sauerkraut to your diet by Shelley Emling

The Super Superfood You’re Probably Not Eating

Researchers also found that sauerkraut can reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Is there anything better at a summer barbecue than a hot dog with sauerkraut tucked inside the bun? Not much. And beyond the taste, there also are plenty of healthy reasons to add this fermented cabbage to your diet — not only during the summer, but all year long. Here are just five of them.


 


1. Sauerkraut packs a punch when it comes to vitamins.

Popular throughout Central Europe for centuries, sauerkraut is a great source of vitamin C. And vitamin C — a superstar antioxidant — helps protect the body from stress and free radical damage. Other healthy nutrients in sauerkraut include vitamin K, known for its role in blood clotting, as well as calcium, potassium and phosphorus. An added bonus is that fermentation makes these nutrients easier for your body to absorb.

2. Sauerkraut boosts your digestive system.

Sauerkraut is ripe with probiotic power, or beneficial bacteria that wards off toxins and not-so-beneficial bacteria. In short, probiotics actually feed the good bacteria in your gut, which leads to better digestive health. Probiotics also have been shown to lessen gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation and symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

3. Sauerkraut could help you lose weight.

Like most vegetables, sauerkraut is a low-calorie food with a lot of fiber. As such, it can make you feel fuller for longer, which could help with weight loss. With only 15 calories in two-thirds of a cup, sauerkraut is the perfect snack when you get hungry between meals.

4. Sauerkraut may reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s.

Study after study shows a connection between the health of the gut and the health of the brain. Indeed, recent research out of Lund University in Sweden found that unhealthy intestinal flora could speed up the development of

Is Salt As Bad As Once Thought?

Woman adding too much salt to pizza, is salt as bad as once thought?

Should you avoid salt? Some sources claim it isn’t as bad for your health as once thought. David Trachtenbarg, MD, UnityPoint Health, says having too much salt in your diet is entirely possible, and while you do need some salt in your body, he explains the reasons why watching your salt intake still matters.

What’s Too Much Salt?

On average, Dr. Trachtenbarg says most people consume between 9,000-12,000 milligrams of sodium a day, roughly over three times the recommended amount. He suggests keeping daily sodium levels at 2,300 milligrams maximum, with less than 1,500 milligrams being preferred, especially for adults with high blood pressure.

“For most people, there are no side effects of having too much sodium,” Dr. Trachtenbarg says. “But, that doesn’t mean salt can’t have a negative effect on the body.”

He lists the health impacts of consuming excess sodium:

  • Blood pressure. Eating too much salt is linked to hypertension, or high blood pressure. Reducing salt intake to 5,000-6,000 milligrams per day has shown to lower blood pressure.
  • Heart health. If you have heart disease or congestive heart failure, extra salt can cause fluid retention, which can lead to shortness of breath and hospitalization.
  • Kidney function. If you have kidney disease, too much salt in your diet may cause you to retain fluid, leading to weight gain and bloating.
  • Diabetes. While not directly connected to blood sugar, eating too much salt increases the risk of complications from diabetes.

“Nearly every processed food has added salt,” Dr. Trachtenbarg says. “When eating processed foods, it’s important to look at the amount of sodium listed on the nutrition label.”

How to Reduce Sodium Intake

The simplest way to reduce the amount of salt in your diet is avoiding processed foods and not adding salt to your meal. Dr. Trachtenbarg encourages you to look closely at nutritional labels, staying away from foods with high salt content, like bacon and large pickles.

“Reduced sodium or low-sodium foods can help reduce blood pressure, but foods with close to zero salt are often tasteless. The good news is if you limit salt intake, your body becomes more sensitive to the salt in food. This means many processed foods may become too salty for your taste, and you can enjoy lower sodium foods without missing the flavor,” Dr. Trachtenbarg says.

Other common beliefs about reducing sodium don’t hold as much promise. Dr. Trachtenbarg lists why the following steps don’t balance out salt consumption.

  • Drinking more water. Extra water doesn’t “wash out” the salt. High salt intake can lead to bloating and fluid retention.
  • Sweating it out. There’s about 500 milligrams of salt in a pound of sweat. Normally, only a very few athletic people will sweat a significant amount of salt. Even though exercising in high temperatures produces more sweat and salt, it can also lead to heat stroke, which can be fatal.
  • Using “healthy” salt options. Sea salt is often talked about as being a better sodium option. And, while sea salt does have a different element make-up than salt (sodium chloride), there’s no clear benefit of choosing sea salt over regular table salt.

As for those who say at least salt is better than sugar, Dr. Trachtenbarg says that isn’t
