It is neither aesthetic nor good news for your health. Here’s how to lose belly fat and get a flatter stomach.When people go to the forties and fifties,the proportion of fat in the total body weight tends to increase.This is seen more in women than in men. Especially after menopause,the overweight tend to be stored around the navel area,since the ratio of fat to lean tissue (fat free) currency and since the storage of fat begins to favor the upper body (above the hips and thighs).
Even women who do not gain weight can still see their waistlines expand.At one time, women could accept these tgetchanges as something inevitable in life after menopause.But they must not be forgotten that when the waist increases the health risks also increase.Abdominal fat (especially visceral fat) is a concern because it plays a key role in various health problems.Generally speaking, abdominal fat is both subcutaneous and visceral: Subcutaneous:this fat lies between the skin and the abdominal walls.You can grab the subcutaneous fat with your hand, Visceral:that fat around the abdominal organs.Visceral fat is out of reach of your hand (you can not grasp it).It is found buried within the abdominal cavity (where it padded spaces between abdominal organs).Overweight does not necessarily equal unhealthy. There are actually plenty of overweight people who are in excellent health. Conversely, many normal weight people have the metabolic problems associated with obesity. That’s because the fat under the skin is actually not that big of a problem (at least not from a health standpoint, it’s more of a cosmetic problem). It’s the fat in the abdominal cavity, the belly fat, that causes the biggest issues.If you have a lot of excess fat around your waistline, even if you’re not very heavy, then you should take some steps to get rid of it. Belly fat is usually estimated by measuring the circumference around your waist. This can easily be done at home with a simple tape measure. Anything above 40 inches (102 cm) in men and 35 inches (88 cm) in women, is known as abdominal obesity. There are actually a few proven strategies that have been shown to target the fat in the belly area more than other areas of the body.
