Have a Wide Waist? Here's What You Need to Know!

 Do you have a wide waist? Here's what you need to know!

If your waist is wide, there’s something that you need to know. People with larger waists have lower amounts of something called adiponectin in their bodies. What is adiponectin?

According to Miriam Webster medical is: "a protein produced and secreted by fat cells that is normally abundant in the blood and plasma but has reduced expression in those with obesity and insulin resistance."

This information is very important because health is actually a spectrum, before you have diabetes, you have things going on in your body that increase your risk of getting diabetes:

  • Glucose levels
  • A1c levels
  • Inflammation, etc

People don’t just one day pop up with type II diabetes, they develop “low grade” diabetes or semi diabetes (prediabetes) first. Waist size and your health are strongly related. People who have smaller waists have more adiponectin, they’re reaping some real benefits that adiponectin provides.

Here are the benefits:

  1. Adiponectin helps our bodies process glucose, it helps with glucose metabolism.
  2. Adiponectin also helps prevent insulin resistance and type II diabetes. Researchers are even beginning to think that adiponectin plays a major role in metabolic syndrome because not only does it help with preventing diabetes related issues, it helps prevent issues with the blood vessels.
  3. Adiponectin has been shown to help with endothelial inflammation, which is the lining of your blood vessels, keeping them from being inflamed. Adiponectin has helped in terms of preventing hypertension, coronary artery disease, dyslipidemia, triglyceride levels (keeping them in check), and adiponectin has even helped people with renal failure.

 

So you’re probably wondering how can I increase my levels of adiponectin? Well there are ways to do it. If you take in omega 3 every day, you can increase your adiponectin by 14-60%. If you follow a low calorie diet plus exercise, you can increase your adiponectin by 18-48%. And just by supplementing with fiber, you can increase your adiponectin even more by 60-115% which means you can get just about twice as much adiponectin as you currently have just by taking fiber.

So to wrap it up, if you have a larger waist, it’s likely that you need more adiponectin in your life, and the way to get it is to take omega 3, exercise, follow a healthy diet, and eat more fiber. With all these tips you’ll see your waist shrink back to a healthy size, and you’ll feel the health results because you’re improving your blood vessel health, you’re improving the way your body processes sugar and fat, and you’re preventing yourself from having some very debilitating diseases.
