Belly Fat Is Not Just A Vanity Issue

Belly Fat Is Not Just A Vanity Issue

Too much fat around your stomach (belly) can pose danger to your health. So beat the belly fat before it beats you!

In a recent study done in rats, a US researcher has found that a plant oil with a unique fatty acid profile might help indirectly to reduce belly fat. While we wait for more research to substantiate this finding, let's look at why storing fat in your belly is harmful to health. 

The fat that lies just below the skin of your belly (subcutaneous fat) is not as harmful as the fat which is deep-seated around the organs in the abdomen (visceral fat).

Possible health risks with increased belly fat -

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Dementia

There are no short cuts to reduce belly fat. A combination of sensible eating and regular exercise is the only way to tone up your abdomen. So watch your waistline to save your health!
