Do you know that your gut health can affect your waistline?
For most of us the place we hold our extra weight is round our waist or tummy. It's possible this could be related to our bowel health as much as to what we eat and how we move.
Most of our vital organs are located in our abdomen, they help to keep us alive so the body always wants to protect them.
If the bowel does not function well, has wastes sitting in it too long, creating toxic gas and bacteria, then this creates too much acidity.
So now the body needs to protect the organs from this toxicity and acid, so it lays down a layer of fat to protect them. Visceral fat.
Some visceral fat is necessary but when the tummy becomes barrel shaped then this is too much.
