We now know that this type of fat, called visceral fat, is metabolically active and churns out stress hormones like cortisol and inflammatory substances called cytokines that affect you body’s production of insulin. The result is worse than just being generally overweight; you’re looking at increased risks of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, some cancers, and even dementia.Unfortunately, some women are just more prone to carrying weight in their middle instead of their hips and thighs. Sometimes, it’s genetics—maybe your mother was more apple-shaped. Belly fat can also increase around menopause, or … [Read more...] about 13 Ways to Lose Stubborn Belly Fat For Good

Health Obesity Fat Diet Excess storage of fat is linked to many different chronic diseases. But some areas of fat storage on the body are worse than others. In general, women have greater absolute body fat percentages than men. Typically, women carry more fat around the legs, hip and buttocks, as well as the chest and upper arms. Women have more subcutaneous fat—the fat you can pinch under your skin—while men typically have more visceral fat, which is stored in and around the abdominal organs. People who have greater fat stores around their butt and thigh (gluteal-femoral) regions are at lower risk of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, than those with greater fat stores around their middle. Why is belly fat more dangerous? Excess fat around the tummy is subcutaneous fat—which you can pinch—as well as visceral fat, which is in and around the organs in the abdominal cavity and only visible using medical scans. Researchers have found excess … [Read more...] about Why Is Belly Fat the Most Dangerous Fat of All?

More than any kind of fat, the kind that deposits itself deep in your abdomen increases your risk of insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes. A new study at Columbia University Irving Medical Center found that abdominal fat raises the production of DPP4 (an enzyme) which travels through the bloodstream, and causes inflammation. The researchers have good news, though. Reducing belly fat could enhance insulin resistance.

THE sugar tax on fizzy drinks WON'T help combat obesity, one weight-loss expert today blasted. Instead, Brits need a dose of "tough love", with a clampdown on "ridiculous" fat acceptance campaigns promoting the idea that big is beautiful. From today a levy on sugary drinks will push up the price of favourites Coca Cola and Pepsi. Under the new rules, drinks with at least 8g of sugar per 100ml will cost 24p a litre more, falling to 18p for those with 5g to 8g per 100ml. That's the equivalent of around 8p extra on a can of Coke, or 6p on a can of Sprite - plus the extra sting from VAT. But some brands are cutting their sugar content, in a bid to dodge the tax. A Sun probe found Fanta Orange, Dr Pepper, Lucozade, Vimto and Ribena will all change their recipes. Fizzy drinks with less than 5g of sugar per 100ml won't go up in price. The move, announced by Chancellor Philip Hammond in his budget statement last year, is designed to help tackle spiralling obesity rates. One in three kids leave … [Read more...] about Forget the sugar tax – charge fat people for TWO plane seats and ban obese models, says weight loss guru
Kevin Daly should have felt great after losing than 30 pounds following open-heart surgery in 2015, but he knew something was amiss with his health. Despite the weight loss the 63-year-old from Hoboken, New Jersey achieved through exercise and a healthy diet, his protruding belly did not budge. "I'm 6'3" and went from 232 pounds to 198 and didn't lose an ounce out of my stomach. I almost thought it got even bigger," Daly told CBS News. Up until then, doctors had told him what most older adults hear: weight settles in the stomach area as you get older and stubborn belly fat is tough to get rid of. "But after the weight loss, to not lose an ounce in my belly, it made no logical sense," Daly said. His doctors agreed and ordered some tests. Daly underwent a CT scan at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City in December of 2017. That's when he got the harrowing news: "an extremely large mass" had invaded his midsection. "For two seconds I felt completely vindicated," Daly said. "And then … [Read more...] about Man’s “beer belly” turned out to be a 30-pound tumor
