What You Do Not Know about Abdominal Fat
More than just the flabs
An increasing number of people have been reported to have excess abdominal fat nowadays. Given the modern lifestyle we now have, where everything is instant, putting on those flabs has become much easier. The society's knowledge about abdominal fat is limited to it simply being a physical nuisance. What most people do not know is that it is the most dangerous fat in the body.
Studies indicate that while excess body fat is harmful, excess abdominal fat is a major health risk. The two types of fat in your abdominal area are subcutaneous fat, which lies on top of your abdominal muscles; and visceral fat, which surrounds your organs. Both greatly increase your risks for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, and other degenerative diseases. In fact, your belly fat is a better indicator of heart disease risk than BMI (body mass index).
Why is abdominal fat more dangerous?
Inflammation is an intriguing aspect of many health problems. It is suspected to be the cause of all diseases and is strongly linked to heart disease. Abdominal fat releases more inflammatory molecules into your body on a consistent basis than other body fats.
Belly fat is also linked to insulin resistance because it is indicative of excess fat in the liver. This degrades the liver's ability to process insulin. Excess insulin ruins your arteries and leads to heart attack. It also sends hunger signal to your brain to make you eat more, increasing your risks for obesity and other chronic diseases.
How to get rid of the flabs?
Getting rid of the abdominal fat is a lot of work. There is no quick fix solution for this problem. The pills advertised in the market today are often ineffective and unhealthy. The only way to lose your abdominal fat is to incorporate proper nutrition with a strategically-designed exercise program that stimulates correct hormonal and metabolic responses in your body. Your diet plan has to be concentrated on unprocessed natural foods. While sit-ups, crunches, and other exercises can strengthen your belly muscles, they do not eliminate abdominal fat. Overall weight loss is required for significant belly fat loss.
