Inner abdominal fat


Content << >> No 1 health killer

Just a few years ago, the health apostles did not care where the fat deposits were. Obesity was considered unhealthy anyway, regardless of its place in the body. An uneven distribution of the fat deposits was therefore more of an aesthetic problem than a question of health.

But medical studies have shown that fat in the abdominal cavity, the so-called visceral fat, is more associated with health problems than fat on the hips, buttocks and other parts of the body.

The internal abdominal fat is supposed to promote the development of heart attacks and strokes and thus lead to the death of millions. The subcutaneous fat tissue, on the other hand, is now considered relatively harmless, at least with regard to the promotion of cardiovascular diseases.

These relatively new findings have led to an increase in the use of tape measure to monitor the health risks posed by obesity.

One knows thick bellies predominantly from men, who carry their belly like a ball before themself. However, women from middle age onwards are also often affected by thick bellies because the balance of hormones changes over the years. Younger women are less likely to be overweight with an emphasis on the abdomen. They have rather strong legs and rounded hips.

Because of the body shape, which results from the fat distribution, one speaks with belly stressed overweight also of the apple form and with hip stressed fat of the pear form. The shape of pears has been largely acquitted as a health problem and the shape of apples is nowadays the main problem with obesity.

However, some questions arise on the subject of abdominal fat that cannot be answered by normal diet or health books.

Is the internal abdominal fat really that dangerous?

What about the so-called life belt, is it dangerous too?

Why do some people gain weight in their belly and not elsewhere?

How do you get rid of your big belly?

This website is dedicated to answering these questions.
