Interesting. Never considered this as part of the issue but I see how it can be. Many of my clients seriously struggle with third chakra issues.
I have to add that this is only one small factor that determines how much people struggle with stubborn stomach fat. Sometimes it has more to do with ignorance about the types of foods that actually make belly fat loss possible or easier.
Other times it has to do with hip flexor injuries and stomach surgeries (c-sections, hysterectomies, etc) that result in motor amnesia of the deep abdominal muscles that lead to the poochy ab look. You see this in skinny people all the time who eat right and exercise and have no weight to lose at all.
Your article makes a great point about how belly fatloss is an emotional/mental issue as well as a diet/exercise issue. My clients are a perfect example of this and it's frustrating to say the least.
