Ladies, remember when someone else’s “muffin top” might’ve made you giggle?
Then… one day… it happened to you. Despite your best efforts, your own muffin grew a top and popped right over your waistline.
Not so funny anymore, is it?
Don’t worry. I’m here with a muffin-fighting plan that’ll chop the top and give you the waistline of your dreams.
But first — a new study exposes the biggest risk of muffin top, and it’s not the giggles of younger and more slender people staring at your waistline, unaware that one day it’ll happen to them.
Muffin top isn’t just a sign of any old fat.
It’s a sure sign that you’ve built up a deep inner layer of visceral fat, the dangerous blubber that builds up inside your abdominal cavity.
On the outside, it forces the external layer of fat to pop over your pants and form that distinct muffin shape. On the inside, it puts the squeeze on your vital organs.
But the new study finds it does something else, too.
Once it forms that solid layer deep inside your middle, visceral fat sets up a factory that works overtime cranking out a protein called FGF2. That’s short for fibroblast growth factor-2, but don’t bother trying to remember the name.
Just remember what it does: It causes normal healthy cells to go haywire and turn into cancer cells.
The more FGF2 your body cranks out, the more of those cells form. And when you have enough of those cells, you’ve got a recipe for a deadly tumor.
To see the process unfold, researchers plucked those protein-pumping fat cells from human women and then implanted them into mice.
It was almost like they fertilized those poor little critters with “Cancer-Gro” as the muffin top fat cells quickly transformed the surrounding healthy tissue into cancer cells.
And that’s just ONE way the dreaded muffin top can lead to a tumor!
When that ugly layer of fat plops up, it also causes your hormone levels to go haywire. Since that layer usually appears after menopause, you’re already struggling with estrogen.
That one-two punch could fuel certain types of cancers, and that’s why you need to act to chop the top.
First, make sure you’re eating a healthy diet low in carbs and with zero processed foods.
But even if you’re eating a perfect diet, low estrogen can make it hard to lose weight and easy to gain it — so, get your hormone levels tested by a naturopathic doc.
If you’re low, he can help work with you to boost your body’s production with treatments up to and including safe and natural bioidentical hormones.
