Having excess belly fat is no fun.
Carrying around unwanted fat in your abdominal section can negatively affect your self-image, damage your confidence and it also bears with it a number of health risks.
Because of this, there is no doubt that you want to get rid of this belly fat and you may even have a personal reason for doing so.
Whether it’s to improve your overall health, get your summer body ready for a beach vacation or to make a positive impression on a girl you’re thinking about asking out, there are some life-changing benefits that can come from losing your beer belly.
Here are 5 of those benefits:
1. Improved Self-Image & Confidence
Women are more susceptible to public opinion about their body fat than men but the fact is that being overweight affects the self-image of both men and women alike.
It has been proven that men who are lean and fit have more confidence than overweight men.
2. You’ll Eat Better
The great thing about dieting is that you not only get to eat healthy foods that are good for managing your weight, but you also learn which foods to avoid if you want to keep the weight off.
When you reach your goal weight, you can be feel so proud and accomplished and this usually means that you’ll work just as hard to keep the weight off.
Losing your beer belly can help you adapt a diet that is more healthy for you. This also means you’re less likely to binge or over-eat as well as reduce foods that are processed or unhealthy.
3. Better Clothes
After losing your beer belly, you would no longer need to shop for clothes in the men’s plus size section of the store where you would usually have a limited selection.
Your clothes will not only fit better but you’ll have a wider selection with your new size and you can shop just about anywhere and have access to more styles.
You’ll also feel much better getting compliments when you’re dressed up sharply in your new outfits.
4. Get More Dates
This is actually related to confidence and self image but you can see why you would get more dates if you got rid of the beer belly.
Obviously, this applies to single men but if you’re married, your wife may have a new full time job trying to get women off you.
Lose your beer belly and get more dates due to renewed self confidence and body image.
5. Live a Longer, Healthier Life
A beer belly comes with lots of health risks including heart disease, stroke, cancers, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and more.
Losing belly fat improves your blood flow and lessens inflammation which reduces all these health risks. You can add years to your life just dropping 10 pounds of fat.
Luckily, when you lose weight, the fat would usually get burned off from your abdomen first before other areas of the body so you’ll lose your beer belly first.
While you may have your own personal reason why you want to get rid of your beer belly, and it may even be one I mentioned above, we can all agree that the benefits you get from doing so are worth it.
Take these five reasons as motivation for dropping the pounds and getting rid of your beer belly.
