Earlier this week I read an interesting, informative, and insightful email on abdominal fat. It went something like this:
Scientific research has clearly determined that although it is unhealthy in general to have body fat, in EXCESS, throughout your body, likewise, it’s dangerous to have excess abdominal fat – BELLY FAT.
Subcutaneous fat covers up your abs from being visible and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.
Visceral fat lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs.
Both are serious health risk factors, however, researchers shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat; due to its releases of inflammatory molecules into your system on a consistent basis.
In regards to BURNING BELLY FAT and TRAINING ABS, the most EFFECTIVE way to gain control over your body fat for life, REGARDLESS of gender, is to maximize your lean muscle that your body carries, as well as working that muscle hard through intense resistance exercise regularly.
