Causes of weight gain in the belly

Are you a bit overweight or obese and tired of it?

  • Are you searching the web for ways to lose weight?
  • Do you have weight around your tummy or upper part of the body?
  • Do you prediabetes, or cholesterol abnormalities such as elevated triglycerides or low good cholesterol?
  • Were you told to be prediabetic or have a history of borderline blood sugars?
  • Do you have health insurance?
  • Do you know that your insurance might cover the cost of the weight loss physician visits?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are not alone and you might have what is called "metabolic syndrome" or insulin resistance that increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers. Affecting one in three Americans, metabolic sydrome is a common problem that in fact might be causing your weight gain.

How can metabolic syndrome or insulin resistance cause weight gain?

If you are insulin resistant, your basal insulin levels will be high as the body compensates for insulin resistance by increasing the production of insulin. Since Insulin is the principal anabolic(body building) hormone in the body, people with insulin resistance tend to gain weight, especially in the belly and upper part of the body, one area not good for the body to have a lot of fat! 

As per research from Mayo Clinic and other places, belly fat produces harmful chemicals that raise body's inflammation which in turn raises the risk of many health problems including cardiovascular disease. In fact, most human disease starts with inflammation including that of Cancers. No wonder, obese people have higher risk of overall disease risk including that of cancer. Watch this excellent Youtube video to understand insulin resistance.
