Nobody wants to be seen as fat, hence the need to reduce body fat. Being fat can come with many disadvantages, which may be physical, health-wise, or psychological. A fat person, to some people, is seen as an unhealthy person. So, reducing body fat is a priority for most of the fat people around the world today.
Hello readers, we welcome you to another blog post that centers on being healthy. In this article, we will be discussing how to take care of that extra body fat, turning it into heat and melting it away faster than you imagined. Most of us have very busy schedules, which may not allow us to burn our fats effectively. Check out my other blogs such as, “31 easy ideas to change your life“.
Someone with a fat body might say to someone commenting on the fat something like “I do not like being body-shamed” or “This is how I am”. These types of statements are for those who do not want to put in the work. For anyone with the zeal to reduce body fat, there are different solutions. Some say you can exercise, cut down the amount of food you eat, or even the number of times you eat. But have you ever considered turning body fat into body heat?
Here are some easy ways to do your body fat to heat:
Consume more peppers
Peppers have been known to deal with body fats effectively and naturally. Examples of these peppers are jalapeno and chili. They have been known to burn white fat. Recent studies have shown that heat generated by the pepper can actually oxidize the fat layers in the body.
They also contain vitamin C, a nutrient that is water-soluble, which speeds up the digestive process and boosts metabolism. Remember, moderation is paramount as too much consumption of peppers may not be good for the stomach.
Consume more turmeric
Turmeric has been known to be good for the body in so many ways. Let us take a look at this very important detail. The body is literally made up of brown and white adipose tissues. The brown ones turn body fat into body heat, while the white adipose tissues are the ones responsible for the extra fat layers in the body. Now, why are we digging into this detail?
The work of turmeric comes into play here as it promotes gene expression in these white adipose tissues, thereby suppressing these extra layers of fat. It also promotes the production of Norepinephrine, a substance with the ability to change white adipose tissues to brown. So, through your busy schedule, find some time to have turmeric with milk or some roasted veggies.
Try not to skip meals
It may be counter-intuitive, but skipping meals to avoid extra calories may be the wrong way to go about with handling body fat. The more times you skip your meals, the less fat your body can burn, and here is why. The body requires a steady intake of fibers, proteins, and vitamins, which are helpful in turning fat into heat. So, whenever you think of skipping meals; don’t. Instead, eat smart by consuming foods with more nutrients and maybe less fat. Consuming more water is another way to effectively shed some weight.
Use cold water to shower
Do you remember those two types of tissues we talked about earlier? Yes, you do—the white and brown adipose tissues. Exposing your body to cold helps it form browner than white adipose tissues, and we already talked about its relevance in turning the body fat into heat. Also, the body can help in this cause because feeling cold makes the cells generate more heat for easier adaptation. The process is known as thermogenesis.
So, taking cold showers can trigger these two reactions at the same time, and it is safe to say you can guess the results. Sleeping in the cold can also suffice. However, the temperatures of the room or water should not be too low, or it may cause cold, cough, or fever. A temperature of 19 degrees Celsius or 66 degrees Fahrenheit would be the prime temperature for the brown adipose tissues and thermogenesis combination.
Stressing your body leads to the production of cortisol, which triggers the tendency to eat even when you are not supposed to. The extra calories from the food defeat the aim.
There are other ways to handle fat, but with the methods pointed out in this article, you can effectively turn body fat to heat without having to dedicate time from a very busy schedule. So, please try out some of these methods, and you won’t be disappointed.
