Beer Guts

This is a colloquial term referring to deposits of fat in the male abdominal area and is associated with a sedentary lifestyle and over-consumption of beer. Beer guts are common in men, partly because many are genetically 'programmed'  for central weight-gain anyway.

The most common reasons for beer guts are excess alcohol and food, with lack of regular exercise. Beer/Lager is implicated as it is high in calories and is often taken in relatively large amounts.

Dietary Considerations
Cutting alcohol (especially beer) out of your diet will help. Eating healthy foods is the best way to improve this condition.

When to seek further professional advice
If you have beer guts you should see your doctor or rather a dietician so that they may give you a healthy diet to follow and help you to take up a regular exercise regime.

Alternative Treatment

Western Herbalism: Treatment can help, plus an effort by the person concerned, to improve the liver and digestive function.
Other therapies include auricular therapy, Acupuncture, Chinese Herbalism, and Autogenic Training.
