Your weight is largely determined by how you balance the calories you eat with the energy you burn. If you eat too much and exercise too little, you’re likely to gain unwanted weight — including belly fat.
However, aging also plays a role. Muscle mass typically diminishes with age, while fat increases. Loss of muscle mass also decreases the rate at which your body uses calories, which can make it more challenging to maintain a healthy weight.
Many women also notice an increase in belly fat as they get older — even if they aren’t gaining weight. This is likely due to a decreasing level of estrogen, which appears to influence where fat is distributed in the body.
Belly Fat – More Than Skin Deep
The trouble with belly fat is that it’s not limited to the extra layer of padding located just below the skin (subcutaneous fat). It also includes visceral fat — which lies deep inside your abdomen, surrounding your internal organs. Although subcutaneous fat poses cosmetic concerns, visceral fat is linked with far more dangerous health problems, including:
Type 2 diabetes
ageLOC TR 90 goes after both types of fat
To share my experience:
I saw TR 90 as a life-saving program. I had gotten rather soft (hard to admit) after two hip replacement surgeries and I had fallen into a routine of having a glass of wine—or two (or more) with most meals as well as that spiffy little cocktail before dinner. I knew things had to change. TR 90 plan revamped my body, my mind and my attitude.
During the 90 days, I experienced a reduction in belly fat and much more tone in my mid-section. My tightest (sexiest!) jeans are now comfortable and my regular ones are a bit looser. When I place my hands around my waist, I’m actually surprised at the difference in the level of muscle tone—so much tighter. This change actually occurred within the first month; the Jumpstart powder, taken for the first 15 days, kicks off the program and begins to change your metabolism. My arms have more muscle tone (like they used to) and it’s not from lifting weights! My inner thighs are more toned as well. TR 90 made me more aware and more conscious of my choices. Overall, I lost ___ inches. Also, there was a “bulge” of fat on my left hip that was prominent after my 2nd hip replacement. My surgeon said, “every hip is different,” when I asked him why I had this when there was nothing on the right side. After TR 90, the “bulge” is quite a bit smaller. I plan to get rid of it forever after the 2nd round of TR 90!
The biggest improvement for me was retraining myself how to eat with the simple “Eating Plan” provided with the system. I was always one to grab something in the morning—toast or coffee—and run out the door, never paying much attention to protein or anything else. Just something to fill that empty tummy. Now, my mind is thinking healthier—seeing balance on my plate (do I have enough protein? Veggies? Fruits? I don’t eat much bread anymore (and never white bread). I was actually eating more than I was used to! And, the biggest change, I no longer crave sugar or alcohol.
Now, my taste buds are different; wine just doesn’t taste as appealing; I still have a half glass at times, but no longer does it (as a friend of mine said) hit the spot. The hard liquor tastes terrible; I’ve mixed a few and after tasting it, end up pouring it down the sink! Why? My mind and body are starting to crave the HEALTHY choices! Burning fat by increasing lean muscle—that’s what TR 90 does in a nutshell. I absolutely fell in love with the Trim Shakes and can hardly wait to be able to add them to my daily regimen. When April 23 rolls around, I will do the program again—this time, paying closer attention to the eating plan, making sure that I increase my exercise significantly so that I can get even better results—and get into those new jeans that I have (a size smaller than my current sexy jeans!)
