When a man’s stomach is full it makes no difference whether he is rich or poor    Euripides

Your defines Belly as

  1. the lower front part of the human body between the chest and thighs; the abdomen
  2. the underside of an animal’s body
  3. the abdominal cavity
  4. the stomach
  5. an appetite for food
  6. the deep interior: the belly of a ship
  7. any part, surface, or section that curves outward or bulges, as the swelling part of a sail in the wind, the fleshy middle part of a muscle, or the upper surface of a violin
  8. the front part or underside of anything
  9. ARCHAIC-the womb

Do you know the truth behind the Belly?

The belly rules the mind   Spanish Proverb

So control the belly and you can control your mind!

Human Belly

My talk is limited to the human belly, and the unwanted, unnecessary risky and even dangerous level of accumulation of fat layer in the Belly.

Belly fat can be visceral ( accumulation of fat between the internal organs ) or subcutaneous ( fat accumulation beneath the skin )

Between these two types of fat, visceral fat accumulation is more harmful causing health complications.

Any standard measurements for belly size?

  • For women, belly size should be less than 35 inches (88.9 Cms)
  • For men, belly size should be less than 40 inches (101.6 Cms)

Remember you may not be overweight and you may be under false security that everything is OK, but your belly fat is the one that tells the story of the rest of your life.

What are the health problems one can get if one has an excess of belly fat?

  • Heart diseases including heart attack
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer ( Breast / Colon )
  • Asthma
  • Dementia

Common Causes of excess Belly fat

  • Junk food
  • Sedentary life
  • Alcohol / Smoking
  • Lack of sleep
  • Never-ending stress

Junk food is cheap and gym memberships are expensive is the reason why we are getting fat.
