5 Reasons Your Belly Fat Won’t Budge

I’d like to thank the lovely Stacy for sharing this article with me:

You work out regularly and follow a clean, healthy diet, so why is your belly fat refusing to budge?

Firstly it’s important to understand that there are 3 types of abdominal fat:
  1. Visceral fat: This protects and supports the organs within the body and makes up the majority of your belly fat. It is the type of fat that, in excess, can lead to cardiovascular disease.
  2. Subcutaneous fat: This is deep below the skin; usually found in large amounts on the hips, thighs and buttocks. This is the second most dangerous fat as it poses a much lower risk of chronic health problems than visceral fat.
  3. Intramuscular fat: This is not common in the abdominal area, but can be found within the abdominal muscles. Excessive amounts of this can be linked to a higher risk of diabetes.”
