Dr. Berg talks about the reasons people have flabby arms and how to burn arm fat. The main reason that people tend to have fat arms is loss of collagen, which happens over a period of time as a person grows older. Out of all the hormones, the growth hormone tends to be the single most critical factor that is responsible for lose arm fat. In adults, the growth hormone controls factors such as fat burning, tightening muscles, protein synthesis, energy. The major causes for flabby arms is lower levels of growth hormone and high cortisol levels.
In the second part of this video, Dr. Berg talks about how to get rid of flabby arms. To lose arm fat and avoid loose skin one must lower cortisol levels and raise the growth hormone. Lower cortisol levels can be achieved by low intensity exercises (walking), sleeping, avoid stress, potassium foods, avoid sugar. Higher growth hormone can be achieved by high intensity exercises, sleeping, proteins, avoid sugar.
Loose skin normally stems from a loss of collagen, which occurs when the adrenal glands become stress. This is common during and after menopause, primarily because the adrenal glands act as a back up gland for the ovaries. The buffer for cortisol is GH (Growth Hormone) and as GH drops, there is nothing left to counter the bad effects of cortisol.
1. Low intensity exercise
2. Increase sleep
3. Support adrenal gland
4. Avoid stress
5. Increase potassium
6. Increase B vitamins
7. Avoid sugar

5. Decrease Cortisol and insulin
6. Support the liver
