5 Bad Daily Habits That Are Giving You Belly Rolls

Start exploring

Research shows that sitting all day without breaks is a huge health risk. 

1. You're sitting all day long.

Sitting for long periods can increase blood pressure, obesity, high blood sugar, poor cholesterol, belly fat, and early death, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Eating while perusing social media, texting, or watching videos may increase belly fat.

2. You're practicing "distracted eating."

Many of us do this, but study suggests that it might boost your calorie intake without your knowledge.

Making excuses for bad eating habits will just set you back and create belly rolls.

3. You're rationalizing your poor eating habits.

"Today was stressful, so I really deserve this dessert, drink, meal, etc." "People rationalize why they struggle to lose weight and make bad choices," Yeung said.

Potato chips, chocolate chip cookies, sweets, fast food, and soda are good.

4. You're eating junk food.

 They're addictive, full of empty calories, and unhealthy. Avoid chips and candy in the lunchroom—they're bad for your health and tummy rolls!

"You may believe 5 or 6 hours of sleep is enough, but your body knows better.

5. You're not getting enough sleep.

 "Poor sleep causes fat gain—especially around your midsection," Yeung says. Adults should sleep at least seven hours per night.
