What is B.I.G :
B : Belly Fat
I : Insulin
G : Growth
Abdominal fat or also know
clinically abdominal obesity
What causes belly fat ?
consumption of more calories
and stress .
Excessive fructose (sugar)
Quality of protein consumed in
24 hour .
Health risks & Myths of Belly Fat
Heart disease , Hypertension and diabetes
50% men and 70% women in United States between the
age of 50 and 79 have abdominal obesity .
Myths: Sits up Vs. Belly Fat
Sits ups , crunches and abdominal exercises are useful
in building abdominal muscles .
No effect , only give the impression of reduce fat
Muscle to fat ration increase .
One of the most important hormone of belly fat is
Visceral adiopose are more likely to be insulin resistant
than other cells on the body.
Cells resistant to insulin can use regular store glucose as
glycogen and as fatty acids.
Insulin is required for uptake of glucose into cells of
Surge of insulin after ingesting a sugary meal or spike in
blood glucose levels.
Insulin Resistance & Diet
The best way to treat insulin resistance is a
balance diet centered around food with low
Glycemic index is the measured effects that
various carbohydrates have on blood sugar levels.
Compounds that gradually release glucose into the
blood have a lower glycemic index (GI)
Protein hormone with 190 amino acids synthesize and
secreted by cells.
Major role of Growth hormone is to stimulate body
growth and metabolic effect.
Growth hormone increases when Insulin level are low
+GH ->- IR
Protein comsumption increase Growth Hormone levels
Growth Hormone Release
Two ways GH is release : Sleep and Exercise
Sleeping: the largest burst of GH occurs during the
early hours of sleep, the first 30-70 minutes.
Exercising : Any type of exercise cause increase in GH
But more vigorous exercises like strength training cause
greater release than aerobic exercise.
Combination of high resistance and major muscle groups
How to Stop getting B>I>G ??
Reduce Belly Fat , reduce Insulin Resistance , Increase
Eat moderate amount of low Glycemic carbs
Substantial quantities of protein and copious amount of
fruit and vegetables
Intense Exercise like Weight Training
