The average American is carrying around about 30 billion fat cells.
Now, not all FAT is created equal. There are 2 types of fats: Subcutaneous and Visceral fat.
Subcutaneous Fat is the fat that lies just below your skin in most of your body — the kind you can grab with your hands.
Visceral Fat is the fat in you’re belly. The reason for its name is because it builds up in the spaces between and around your viscera — internal organs like your stomach and intestines.
According to Samuel Agogo-Jack, MD, president of the American Diabetes Association – “This visceral fat in your middle makes toxins that affect the way your body works”
Among those toxins are chemicals called cytokines that boost your chances of heart disease and makes your body less sensitive to insulin, which can bring on diabetes.
Eric Jacobs, PhD, a researcher at the American Cancer Society, says “Cytokines also cause inflammation, which can lead to certain cancers.” He also mentioned that “In recent years, scientists have uncovered links between belly fat and cancers of the colon, esophagus, and pancreas.”
Belly fat is very sneak and has tremendous hidden health risks. A defined midsection has always been seen as a form of fitness, and as you can see it defines something so much bigger — A flat tummy is the hallmark of people in control of their bodies and, as such, in control of their health.
How can you tell if you’re belly is putting you at risk?! All you need is a tape measure…Go ahead — grab a tape measure and check your results…
The higher the number, the greater the danger your tummy poses to your health.
For women, a waist measurement of 35 inches or more is cause for concern.
For men, a waist measurement of 40 inches or more could spell trouble.
