Excess abdominal fat - More risky than you think!

Views: 22831

Did you know that majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat?

Excess Abdominal Fat

The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible and makes them self conscious. However, what most people don’t realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular is not only ugly but is also a dangerous risk factor to health.

Two Types of Abdominal Fat

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that “beer belly” appearance.

Both of them greatly increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer and other degenerative diseases. Science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat.

If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones then I believe that reducing your abdominal fat should be one of your top priorities. So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat?

The first thing you must understand that there is absolutely no quick fix solutions or pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. The only solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound strategic nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Dieting only will help you lose significantly less abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined.

The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months they abandon their good intentions and slip right 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 also dangerous.

Here are few exercises that you can do and get a flatter and more toned stomach. When performed correctly and combined with proper nutrition the following exercises can aid in the efforts to have the abdomen that you desire.

• The use of movements that do not restrict the body and do not use weight such as side bends and twists or hanging from a bar are all good for the oblique muscles of the abdomen.

• Lower your body to an angle of seventy degrees and curl the torso forward until you crunch into a full contraction of the abdominal muscles.

• Crunches are also good for exercising the abdomen.
