Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body.

However, what most people don’t realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

Did you know that the vast majority of people in Australia have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body.

However, what most people don’t realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs.

Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that it releases more inflammatory molecules into your body on a consistent basis.

If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones, reducing your abdominal fat should be one of your TOP priorities! There’s just no way around it. Besides, a side-effect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive ugly abdominal fat is that your stomach will flatten out, and if you lose enough stomach fat, you will be able to visibly see those sexy six pack abs that everyone wants.

So it’s not just about those 6 pack abs.  This is your health I am talking about.

 

So how do you reduce that belly fat?

Well it’s not by doing sit ups or crunches.  You need to change what you’re eating and get off processed foods.

Start eating real food that once lived such as:

  • lean meats (think chicken, fish, lamb, beef, port, seafood and game)
  • eggs (free range are best)
  • nuts and seeds (not roasted or salted please)
  • fruits(tinned, fresh, frozen, doesn’t matter-get them in) and
  • vegetables (again, frozen or fresh are best)
  • Lastly add small serves of yoghurt and cottage cheese each day for variety
Secondly, you need to move your body.  You can start with something as simple as walking, but you’ll have to up the intensity if you want to see better results.
Intervals and body weight exercises are best.  You can use weights if you like, but remember to keep up the intensity.  No sitting around for a few minutes between each set!  You have to huff and puff a bit and you should work up a sweat.  Go at a high intensity for your current fitness level.  Sample workouts can be found at my website http://www.fitterfasteronline.com

  1. Hello, I believe your web site could be having web browser compatibility issues.
    Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in IE, it’s got
    some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give
    you a quick heads up! Apart from that, great website!
