3 reasons you can’t get a flat stomach

Ever wonder why you haven't been able to burn belly flab in the past NO MATTER what you've tried?

I’ve got a special guest article below from fat loss expert Josh Bezoni where he reveals 3 flat-belly roadblocks.

3 Reason You Can’t Kill Belly Flab

Doctors agree, internal belly fat is the most unhealthy and deadly kind of body fat. Research studies report that it dramatically increases the chance of stroke, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, certain cancers, diabetes, and even depression, sometimes suicide, plus other illness.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, it can make us look unattractive and hurt our self-esteem and confidence.

But, what makes this situation even more frustrating is the fact that belly flab is considered by many to be the most stubborn and impossible weight to penetrate and burn. It’s like the “Fort Knox” of body fat. Here’s why:

PROBLEM #1: Your Hormones Are Out of Whack: Chronic stress causes your body to release a fat-storing hormone called cortisol. The more cortisol your body releases, the more belly flab you store. Plus, eating the wrong foods causes the fat-storing hormone insulin to skyrocket, while a fat-burning hormone called glucagon gets turned off. (Hello, belly flab!)

PROBLEM #2: Your Belly-Burning Furnace Is Busted: When you want to lose a lot of weight, you should cut calories for long periods of time, right?


Cutting calories magnifies nutrient deficiencies in your body. This results in severe cravings as your brain sends emergency “low nutrient signals” to your stomach to eat more food.

Problem is, most people end up eating more “nutrient-dead food” which causes cravings to completely spiral out of control. (If you feel hungry all the time, now you know why.)

After about a week of dieting, your body is genetically programmed to fight back by lowering the hormones responsible for keeping your metabolism humming along (like the calorie-burning thyroid hormones). At the same time, it will increase the “hunger hormone” leptin. (Double whammy.)

As a result, your weight loss will come to a screeching halt, lickity split.

At this point, to keep burning fat you’ll be forced to reduce your calories even lower, and/or do MORE exercise. (Not fun… I’ve been there.)

PROBLEM #3: Your Food Is Laced with Obesity Additives: GIANT food manufacturers make BIG bucks creating “Frankenstein foods” that are stripped of belly-burning nutrients and stuffed full of dirt-cheap, artificial preservatives that make your belly bulge.

I call these chemicals Obesity Additives and studies show:
They cause a mineral imbalance that results in bloating and excess water weight.
They addict us by altering brain chemicals called neurotransmitters – just like the street drugs cocaine, morphine and nicotine do!
They cause pounds of “toxic waste” to accumulate in our digestive tracks. (Believe me, that belly bulge or “pooch” is not all belly flab.)
Those are the 3 BIG obstacles keeping you from EVER getting a flat belly.
