Excess abdominal fat is not only ugly, but extremely dangerous to your health!

  1. 1. Excess Abdominal Fat is Not Only Ugly, but ExtremelyDangerous to Your Health!This is More Than a Vanity Issue!The difference between subcutaneous fat and the more deadly "visceral fat"by Mike Geary, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainerauthor of best-selling program: The Truth about Six-Pack AbsAlthough this picture depicts an extremely overweight man, this article applies to dangerous types of fatinside the bodies of both men and women... and this discussion also applies even if you only have aslight amount of excess stomach fat.Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? Its true --as much as 70% of the population in some "westernized" countries such as the US and Australia are nowconsidered either overweight or obese. The first thing that most people think of is that their extraabdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self consciousabout showing off their body.However, what most people dont realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but isalso a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly determined that although it isunhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous tohave excess abdominal fat.There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your absfrom being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of theabdominal muscles.The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper inthe abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in givingcertain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the sametime, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but sciencehas shown thathaving excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both typesof fat greatly increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleepapnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.Excess stomach fat has also been associated in studies with higher levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), anindicator of inflammation within the body that can lead to heart disease and other health issues.
  2. 2. Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that studies show that it releases moreinflammatory molecules into your system on a consistent basis.One of the major reasons that some people accumulate more visceral fat than others can be from a highcarbohydrate diet that leads to insulin resistance over time (years of bombarding your system with toomuch sugars and starches for your body to properly handle the constant excess blood sugar) ... andstudies show that high fructose intake particularly from high-fructose corn syrup can be a majorcontributor to excess visceral fat.If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones, reducing your abdominal fat (includingreducing visceral fat) should be one of your TOP priorities! Theres just no way around it. Besides, a sideeffect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive abdominal fat is that your stomach will flatten out, and ifyou lose enough stomach fat, you will be able to visibly see those attractive six pack abs that everyonewants.So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat, including visceral fat?Is there actually a REAL solution beyond all of the gimmicks and hype that you see in ads and oncommercials for "miracle" fat loss products?The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution. There are no pills orsupplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster.Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either. Youcant spot reduce your stomach fat by using any of these worthless contraptions. It simply doesnt workthat way.The only solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a soundnutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program thatstimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake aswell as your training program are important if you are to get this right.Ive actually even seen a particular study that divided thousands of participants into a diet-only group andan exercise & diet combined group. While both groups in this study made good progress, the diet-onlygroup lost significantly LESS abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined group.Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick.The majority of people that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectivelyenough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this every day at the gym.Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part styleweight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doingsomething useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months ofno results and wonder where they went wrong.
  3. 3. Well, the good news is that Ive spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, andapplying it "in the trenches" with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to seewhat works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss.From my research, two of the most important aspects to getting rid of visceral fat are:1. The use of high intensity forms of exercise and full-body resistance training. Low intensity cardioexercise simply isnt as effective for removing visceral fat in particular.High intensity exercise such as interval training or full-body weight training are very effective at helping toimprove your bodys ability to manage glucose and increases insulin sensitivity, a crucial step in removingvisceral fat. These types of high intensity exercise routines are also very effective at increasing your fat-burning hormones and creating ahormonal environment conducive to burning off abdominal fat, including visceral fat.2. In addition, its vitally important to get blood sugar under control to help restore insulin sensitivitythrough the right nutrition. This means greatly reducing sugars and refined starches in your diet(including fully eliminating any use of harmful high fructose corn syrup!), and focusing more of your dieton healthy fats (such as avocados, nuts, seeds, coconut fat, olive oil, free-range eggs, fatty fish and fishoils, etc), as well as increasing protein and fiber intake. The standard diet recommended by thegovernment, which contains an unnaturally high grain intake is NOT conducive to controlling blood sugarand reducing visceral fat!Reducing grain-based foods in your diet and getting more of your carbs from veggies and high fiber fruitssuch as berries can go a long way to helping to solve this problem.Learn the Truth about Losing Your Stomach Fat PermanentlyYou may not realize this, but the entire basis of my Truth about Six Pack Abs program is NOT aboutabs exercises... instead, its actually about detailed strategies for both nutrition and exercise thatmaximize your ability to lose abdominal fat.

This is notguesswork... it is a proven system that works time and time again for all of my clients on every corner ofthe globe that actually apply these strategies.

  4. 4. One of the main reasons that most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions atfirst to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slipright back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.I want to help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra abdominal fat that is not only UGLY, but alsoDANGEROUS.
