How dangerous is it?
The problem with belly or abdominal – fat isn’t just the way it looks on the beach. It could be a sign that your health is at risk.
According to the NHS (National Health Service) of the UK:
You have a higher risk of health problems if your waist size is:
- more than 94cm if you’re a man
- more than 80cm if you’re a woman
Your risk of health problems is even higher if your waist size is:
- more than 102cm if you’re a man
- more than 88cm if you’re a woman
But it’s not just the abdominal fat that is dangerous, an invisible ‘enemy’, called the visceral fat, it is considered to be even more dangerous for our health, being responsible for serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia etc.
Visceral fat is found around our organs, like the liver, pancreas and intestines and we cannot detect it without specialised exams, using an MRI scan, a CT scan or a bioelectrical impedance machine!
Studies are showing that visceral fat can ONLY be reduced through specialised diet programs developed for each person!
