The Obesity Virus

Scientists The University of Louisiana have found that obesity can be caused by a virus.

Even if a man is following a correct diet, many persons are missing the fact that every body is unique, and what's good for one may cause harm to another .

Scientists made an assumption that there is a virus that can affect human metabolism.

After some laboratory experiments it was showed that the infection with human adenovirus-36 (AD-36) - long time known as a cause of eye and respiratory infections in humans - causes adult stem cells obtained from fat fat tissue to transform into fat cells. the other stem cells (not exposed to the virus) remained unchanged.
The study also reported the identification of a specific gene that seems to be implied in the obesity effect.

Are They going to find a vaccine for obesity?

How to Lose Belly Fat

It's not a secret that the best way to lose fat is eating right and exercising regularly. Actually the fastest way for getting rid of belly fat is to combine the weight lifting, healthy eating (good diet) and weight loss pills.

Belly fat is an unused energy, so all we have to do is to burn it. Most of us are conscious that the extra belly fat is quite ugly, we don't like it, but we also don't like to get rid of it. It's not so difficult, we just need to take some action, of course if you belly is not a huge one - then it's gonna be a longer road for transforming that fat into muscles.

From all exercises aiming the weight loss, the ones for belly fat loss can be the most difficult. Practice exercises at least 30 minutes a day, jump rope for about 2-3 minutes, then squat thrust into a push up (Slowly squat down with your head forward and bring your hands to the floor just outside of your feet, hands pointing forward too. Then in one movement, push your legs back and out behind you - into a pushup position. Perform one strict pushup and then jump back into your squat position and then stand back up.), do it for a few minutes also, then repeat with the rope jumping. Use your imagination. Keep saying that you are losing fat.

Overweighted persons usually carry too much fat around their belly, and even if not overweighted, there can still be too much fat rounding the stomach - that makes the organs work harder.

Make sure to watch what you are eating! Decrease, or even stop alcohol consumption, try not to eat late night snacks and forget about junk food.

Work with weights about 2 times per week, don't forget to exercise and repeat for yourself that all this is gonna make you slimmer.

The abdominal area would be the winner in the course for the most desired place to lose fat. :)

An important thing to do is to eat frequently, but in small portions rather than two times and a lot! Establish your goal and go for it!
