Why do people find it so difficult to get rid of their tummy fat?
The good news is that we are genetically no different to the hunter gatherers who inhabited Africa thousands of years ago.
The bad news: we don’t eat as good as they did!
In these times, belly fat provided a valuable energy reserve to fall back on in case people got hungry.
If they were forced to go without food for some time they wouldn’t starve, but would be able to draw on their fat reserves. Basically, your belly fat is mother nature’s way of keeping you safe.
The problem is that your body wants to build this energy reserve up whenever it can, which can lead to some people carrying a little too much tummy fat!
In short, it is hard to lose that belly fat because your body doesn’t want to – thanks genetics!
