WHAT IS BELLY FAT:
The problem with belly fat is that it isn’t just the inch you can pinch known as subcutaneous fat. The real danger is the fat that’s in your abdomen and surrounding your internal organs known as visceral fat. Studies have shown visceral fat puts us at higher risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and in women it’s even shown to increase the risk of breast cancer.
THE ABRAHAM DIET PORTION SIZE EXPLAINED:
Now the Abraham diet comes from a study done in Oxford and to help participants reduce the amount they were eating, they were encouraged to measure portions based on the size of their hands.
The Abraham diet aims for a daily intake of,
• Three fist-sized servings of carbohydrates (Examples: Pasta, rice, sweet potato, breakfast cereals, bread, wholegrains e.g. bulgur wheat, quinoa)
• Three palm-sized servings of lean protein (Examples: Fish, meat, poultry, eggs, nuts, soya products e.g. tofu, quorn, legumes and pulses e.g. lentils, kidney beans)
• Three cupped handfuls of vegetables or salad (Examples: All kinds of green and root vegetables (not potatoes) and salad vegetables)
• Two fist-sized servings of fruit (Examples: Any fresh, frozen or fruit canned in natural juice or water)
• Two servings of fat or oil covering the tip of the thumb (Examples; Any vegetable oil, butter or fat spreads.)
Aim to have some dairy in your diet, participants could have 200ml/⅓ pint skimmed or semi-skimmed milk, or two 125g pots of natural or low-calorie yoghurt.

The results from the study were pretty incredible participants lost 0.5 to 1kg every week if done correctly!
But here’s the best part, after 6 weeks the study showed that each individual also reduced their,
• Dangerous visceral fat by 14%
• Blood pressure
• Had a 5cm reduction in their waistline
And this is all without any extra exercise just by using a very simple portion sizing technique.
Before beginning any diet it’s definitely worth checking if you actually need to lose weight as you may already be at a healthy weight and the easiest way to do this is to check your BMI at the following link: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-weight/bmi-calculator/
The Abraham Diet does not need you to do any additional exercise for the weight loss benefits already mentioned. But if you are incorporating exercise and training I think the results will be even better.
