Why it’s so difficult to get rid of belly fat

I just found out that one of the reasons we find it so difficult to get rid of belly fat is that it is doing more than just sit there idly waiting to be burned when we need to call on it for fuel.

Belly fat actually has another role as a kind of toxic waste dump. I'm not kidding.

It turns out that as part of the toxin filtration system our body relies on to ensure that we don't end up poisoning our internal organs, excess chemicals that the body cannot metabolize get locked away in fat.

Apparently it is a way to keep the little poisons we put into our body at bay. Kind of like encasing spent radioactive fuel in lead and tossing it down a deep hole. Only it is fat, rather than lead that is providing the protective layer.

So what does this have to do with our struggle to get rid of belly fat? Well, until you have cleaned up your food and reduced the amount of toxins going into your body, your fat cannot release the toxins it has accumulated, and your body cannot release the fat!

If you live in North America you are being subject to more than 3,000 chemicals that are added to the food supply. Plus there are another 70,000 or so chemicals that make their way into out environment from industrial process.

Research has shown most people have between 400-800 chemical residues stored in their bodies, including: PCBs, dioxins, xylene and dichlorobenzene.


Unfortunately it is hard to do much about protecting ourselves from most of these chemicals. But we can do a great deal to eliminate the chemicals coming into our bodies directly from food.

This is important because not only are these chemicals keeping us fat, once the toxic load in our bodies has reached a "tipping point" they begin to cause major dysfunction, like damage to our endocrine system, hormone imbalances, cancer, and other illnesses and disease.

So do you remove the toxins from your body?

Part of it involves learning to eat the RIGHT kinds of foods. Carolyn Hansen has been preaching this approach for a while, and now she has launched a fat loss membership site which addresses this exact problem.

She calls it her No Excuses Body Makeover program. So if you have been struggling to find a method to eliminate the unwanted excess fat pounds that seem to cling stubbornly to your midsection or butt, I recommend checking this out.

Also, while you are there you can download her popular fat loss report for FREE on "The Best Way To Lose Weight"

It even reveals the real reasons why most of us simply don't get anywhere with our plans to lose weight.
