Your belly fat is a result of a rusty metabolic engine. Bring the running, he is working again for you and against annoying fat deposits

The biggest enemy of the 30-year-olds is sloppiness. Has in terms of the physical, catchment held in your life - without that you would have noticed it. Because he sent exploits, in this phase of life that you take care of other things. Whether you are a busy man, who invested a lot of energy into his job. Or contact professionally on the site, your job bores you, or the boss you slows down. Either way, the stress level is permanently in the red

Area. Privately, however, the competition phase is often over: "At 30, you no longer have to go to the game, no longer compete with the other guys"Says sports physician Froböse. A life partner is usually found, you can take it easy - and go there. Since you hardly get the body feedback in the form of aches and pains, it is no wonder that you lose it from view. Your fitness program (which fitness program?) Suffers, and controlled, balanced diet also can be no question.

Stress makes the brain gluttonous
That you go under such circumstances from the glue, and the aforementioned stress is due. On the one hand, because he almost always brings bad eating habits with them: unconcentrated food, fast in-itself-in stopper and snacking around the clock. On the other hand influenced rush fatally brain chemistry and thus the feeling of hunger.

The backgrounds to explore the research group of Professor Achim Peters of the University of Luebeck for many years. He has developed the selfish brain theory that could solve some unexplained phenomena on slimming ("The Selfish Brain", Ullstein, by 20 euros). After that, the brain is selfish and ensures that especially his own energy needs are met. And is enormous: Although it makes up only 2 percent of body weight, it takes half the amount of blood sugar itself. The body can, to conserve energy, stored or circulating in the blood nutrients use (so-called allocation) or he goes back to externally supplied.

If the brain is not enough glucose available, it reports Hunger (hot), preferably rich in carbohydrates. When disturbed by stress allocation that happens even when ample inventories already are there. The interested party has, despite a high blood sugar and full of fat deposits constantly hungry. "You have to imagine it like a jam in the supply chain," said Peters. But it gets even worse: Since the brain claimed all power for himself, falls you any kind of movement increasingly difficult (as you overcome this, you experienced at the end of this 30-section).

Even the desire for comfort food with excessive demands and frustration is a mild form of the allocation error. "With an energy expert brain to get even with strenuous tasks easily 4 hours longer without meal out without feeling hungry," says Peters. "It is possibly something jittery." The incorrect programming of the brain can be corrected to happiness. The most effective way that goes with a triple strategy: reduce stress, recycle nutrients, move the body.

Banish stress
The first step is the stress to come into your life on the track and to change that. Get professional help calm because: Sometimes not the workload triggers the stress out, but the attitude to the job, such as a tendency towards perfectionism. This can be seen alone and overcome difficulties. Even with proper nutrition to stress can chase. "It damages the body as protein structures are broken down. This changes the entire biochemistry, "said Froböse. In particular, essential proteins must be protected. "I advise everyone to protein-based diet. Glutathione is about as protein product of the strongest oxidative stress scavengers. It is found in many protein-containing foods, such as meat and fish. "
