Weight Management ..... keeping obesity checked.




  • Whether you're an "apple" shape with excess belly fat or a "pear" with wide hips and thighs, when you lose weight, you'll most likely lose proportionately more from the abdominal region than elsewhere. Belly fat is more metabolically active and easier to lose than subcutaneous fat under the skin, especially if you have plenty of it. 


  • Belly is fat is also called visceral fat, which is found deep in the belly and around internal organs. There is no disputing the fact that visceral fat is the most dangerous for our health. Visceral fat is easy to lose and can be lost without any changes to your diet. 
  • Women with waists that measure more than 35 inches have too much belly fat and may be at risk for heart disease and other conditions. In this situation, the best thing to do is to lose weight. 
  • Men with waists that measure more than 40 inches have too much belly fat and may be at risk for heart disease and other conditions. Men in this situation should lose weight.
  • Belly fat doesn't just lay idle at your beltline. Researchers describe it as an active "organ" in your body -- one that churns out hormones and inflammatory substances. Abdominal fat is thought to break down easily into fatty acids, which flow directly into the liver and into muscle. Fats and clots get into the bloodstream, and that sets the stage for diabetes, heart disease, and more.
