First one’s the Adrenal belly or Adrenal shape, caused by increased levels of cortisol. When going through stressful periods, the production of cortisol increases, and this favours the accumulation of fat around the waist, leading to a saggy abdomen. Both men and women are likely to gain weight around the waist if they are constantly exposed to high levels of stress, and besides the excess belly fat, they are also likely to experience fatigue, back pain, nervousness, poor memory and sleep problems.

YOU DO NOT NEED THIS BOOK. The cleanse that it recommends works because 1) it slashes calories to around 1000 per day; and 2) it eliminates most added sugar, with the carbohydrates mostly coming from fruits, vegetables, dairy and whole grains. If that was all you did, you would lose weight. You would drop a fair amount of water weight the first few days just by cutting added sugar from your diet. It recommends replacing sweetened drinks with tea which isn't a bad idea - if you're drinking Frappuccinos and soda all day, you will lose weight if you drink tea and water instead. It's that easy. Save your money, you don't need this book for that. If, however, you want brief summaries of the benefits of different kinds of tea and some low-carb, clean recipes for smoothies and dinners, by all means buy this book - that's why I've given it a couple stars. I just wish I could get my money back. I bought this in a moment of weakness for nearly $15 when it is worth maybe $2.
So what can we do to reduce the fat around our belly, no matter the type? Dr. Charlie Seltzer, a physician who is board certified in obesity medicine, says it is quite simple.

Where the fat comes off first is largely based on your genes."

Apple Cider Vinegar will balance your body's PH level. And when your PH level is balanced or alkaline, your body's metabolism will start working properly...allowing you to lose weight.

It's one thing to simply sedate. But kava kava actually reduces anxiety levels by helping you get a healthier perspective on life. In one study, 120 mg of kava-kava was administered daily over 6 weeks to patients who had stress-induced insomnia. The results suggested a statistically significant improvement in sleep latency, duration, and waking mood. A 2010 study out of Melbourne found its efficacy so impressive that the Kava Anxiety-Lowering Medication (KALM) project was established to lobby for its re-introduction.

Imagine clearing out those harmful toxins and relieving stress at the same time. This detox water recipe includes pineapple and basil. Pineapple has bromelain that cleanses the bloodstream and breaks down harmful enzymes so that they can be flushed from your body. Basil fights free radicals and is an excellent source of magnesium so it’s really good for your heart. Using spring or filtered water, mix together in a pitcher five strawberries, about ½ cup of chunked pineapple, 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, four or five fresh basil leaves and some ice. Allow it to steep in the fridge for at least an hour and enjoy.
I know this is not a green smoothie. But it is detoxifying. I started drinking non sugary detoxifying green smoothies in early February and two weeks into it I had a day when I felt so sick I could hardly get out of bed. My body toxins must have been coming into my system for elimination. After that I felt much better and have not had another day like it. I’ve heard that a person can have a “healing crisis” when they begin to detox. So take it slow and even if it is just a sip or two at first you can work up to more as time goes by.
Your morning snack and lunch will consist of a Zero Belly Drink. Each delivers the three core nutrients (protein, fiber, and fat), and is based on plant protein, which reduces both sugar and bloating that you often get from whey-based proteins.

The drink recipes at right pack such a nutritional punch that you’ll know you’re getting the vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy fats you need. Before each meal or snack, ask these three questions: Where’s my protein? Where’s my fiber? Where’s my healthy fat? Check out our picks for the 4 Best Zero Belly Smoothies for Weight Loss.

I lost 4 pounds on this diet, which I followed for 7-out-of-8-days. Probably didn't lose more because my daily calorie intake was already relatively low, but this did push me out of a plateau and helped me loose those stubborn last few pounds. I don't know how much of an impact the tea had on my weight loss (I image sticking to around 1000 calories per day was the main factor), but it is what drew me to this book.
In fact, stress is considered one of the leading causes for lower belly fat building around your midsection. Stress releases a hormone called cortisol that increases the amount of lower belly fat your body holds on to, according to a study from Yale. Essentially, as your stress increases, so does your levels of cortisol and as a result, so does your lower belly fat.
Rooibos tea is made from the leaves of the “red bush” plant, grown exclusively in the small Cederberg region of South Africa, near Cape Town. What makes rooibos tea particularly good for your belly is a unique and powerful flavanoid called Aspalathin. Research shows this compound can reduce stress hormones that trigger hunger and fat storage and are linked to hypertension, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Yup, sometimes the kettle can be as effective as the kettlebell.
Every drop of this iconic pineapple detox water is packed with vivacious charm. The recipe is astonishingly simple, but it yields an incredible source of hydration. The heavenly elixir only requires 2 sticks of sugar cane, approximately 5 pineapple chunks and 2 liters of water. All H2O should be filtered, and spring water is the best choice. Upon combining the ingredients, this brew can be consumed immediately; however, every minute of stewing increases the fun for the tongue. The deliciousness is special enough to make every sip a divinely uplifting experience. Meditative properties are enhanced by pineapples ability to expel toxins.
The first type of belly fat to know about is intra-abdominal fat, which Dr. David Greuner, a New York City surgeon, describes as fat that's closely related to your glucose and insulin metabolism. "Intra-abdominal fat is that inside the peritoneal cavity, made up of fat on and within the organs (liver and intestines) and the omentum (an apron of fat that hangs off the stomach)," he says.
I love Teami products. The teas are amazing. I want to try the Boost tea and Matcha tea next. The detox really works. It is important to take the detox tea at night. My stomach is very sensitive and it helps me to take it every other night. The caffeine levels don't cause me to crash or feel droggy. Also, the natural taste of the tea has caused me to reduce adding sweetness to many other food items and beverages I use. The tumblers, I love them. I'm a very satisfied customer.

At one time, we might have accepted these changes as an inevitable fact of aging. But we've now been put on notice that as our waistlines grow, so do our health risks. Abdominal, or visceral, fat is of particular concern because it's a key player in a variety of health problems — much more so than subcutaneous fat, the kind you can grasp with your hand. Visceral fat, on the other hand, lies out of reach, deep within the abdominal cavity, where it pads the spaces between our abdominal organs.
