Jelly Belly - What? Why? Solutions

'Jelly Belly' (also called middle-aged spread, dumbbell roll, muffin top & prosaic tummy fat), is the most evocative symbol of unwanted weight gain. Some facts about 'Jelly Belly', why it happes & solutions below:-

  • 'Jelly Belly' afflicts a lot of us in our late 20s, 30s and 40s, even those of us who are slim or skinny.

  • They are the most obvious indications of problematic and unwanted fat depositions in one's body, sometimes generously peppered with stretch marks.

  • Eating wrong type of food coupled with a total lack of exercise. Pregnancy is another reason. Female's primary hormone production begins to slow down promoting fat desposition in belly, chin and upper arms by 30.

  • Also there is imbalance between the two hormones as fat cells produce oestrogen which now the body craves.

  • By 40, one could even develop a condition called insulin resistance which is a hormone produced in our bodies. It helps in digestion by breaking down the carbohydrates. Common causes for 'Jelly Belly' are : Heredity, Improper Diet, Lack of Physical Exercise, Hormonal Imbalance, Hypothyroidism & Metabolic Syndrome.

  • Another condition which has a jelly belly as an integral component is metabolic syndrome. This is a combination of some other factors like abdominal fat, increased cholesterol, taking cholesterol medication, high BP, high BP medication, high blood sugar or high blood sugar medication.

  • Metabolic syndrome itself is considered to indicate hormonal imbalance, an increase in oestrogen and cholesterol, and an increase in androgens in women - all of which predispose a woman to deposit fat on the belly, or become apple shaped.

  • Deficiency of the thyroxin hormone produced by the thyroid gland could be yet another reson why women tend to gain weight around their waists.

  • All the causes mentioned above are inter-linked. The remedial measures that help in tackling one of them can also control some of the other casual factors.

  • To overcome 'Jelly Belly', it is ideal to have plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and choose lean sources of protein and low-fat dairy products.

  • For most healthy adults, moderate aerobic activity like brisk-walking for at least 150 minutes a week or vigorous aerobic-activity like jogging for 75 minutes a week is good to burn the fat.
