"The Dangers of Excessive Fat"

There are a lot of reasons why we gain weight. From illness or not being able lose the baby weight to just not being as active, the list is almost endless. Regardless, of reason, one that remains the same: belly fat is unhealthy and has a negative effect on your health.

Types of Body Fat?

There are three main types of fat: visceral (which is referred to as “belly fat”), subcutaneous and essential. Visceral fat is the type of fat that surrounds your vital organs such as the liver, kidneys, pancreas, intestines, and heart.

Subcutaneous fat is found directly under the skin and essential fat is essential for your life and a healthy body which can be found in the brain, bone marrow, nerves and membranes that protect your organs

Note that visceral fat is far more dangerous than subcutaneous fat if excessive within the body.

Dangers of Excessive Belly Fat

In addition to being a precursor to cardiovascular disease, the dangers of belly fat include hypertension, increased risk of stroke and diabetes. In addition, belly fat is an established contributor to the risks of cancer as well. Certain research has now shown that belly and thigh fat increased the risk of aggressive prostate cancer.

How to Reduce Fat throughout the Body

Getting rid of extra weight isn’t easy. And since you didn’t gain it overnight, it’s not going to disappear overnight either. To lose fat around your middle, you need to increase your physical activity and follow a low-sugar, low-carb diet. The link below provides you with an idea of what foods to avoid when trying to eat healthily.

The foods highlighted in the newsletter, can do more than just weight gain. Excessive amounts of sugar cause tooth decay whereas foods high in saturated fats can clog your arteries, leading to heart disease. In addition, consuming these types of foods can make you feel sluggish and fatigued, and that’s after sleeping eight hours a night. Unfortunately, these offenders don’t give your body what it needs to feel energized, or more importantly, staying healthy.

To reduce belly fat, you need to eliminate those top offenders from your diet. For example, if you love sweets, you need to substitute packaged cakes and cookies with desserts that are fruit-based and low in sugar. You can even find low-sugar variations of whip topping you can dollop on. You should also be eating increased quantities of leafy greens and whole grains. Fried food should be avoided and only eaten occasionally. Fresh fish and low-fat cuts of meat are acceptable, if you aren’t vegan.
