2. Drop belly fat
Excess body fat can have a number of adverse effects on your health. Not only does it impact your physical appearance, but it can also increase the risk of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. There’s also another adverse effect associated with excess body fat that many people aren’t aware of: it can impair your body’s production of growth hormone.
One study found that people who were carrying excessive belly produced significantly lower amounts of growth hormone levels than people who were lean. It seems that men are more likely to suffer a reduction in the production of growth hormone when they carry more body fat than women; however, it can affect both genders. Of all the excess fat that the body can store, belly fat is the most dangerous. If you’re looking to increase your growth hormone levels, lower your levels of body fat.
