Belly Fat Is Still Just Fat
One of the biggest misconceptions about belly fat is that there is something special about it due to its location. It’s still just body fat. However, it’s also true that fat does tend to accumulate in certain areas on various body types (apple, pear, hourglass, etc.) and can have some serious health consequences.
In post-menopausal women (and men with that rotund shape), the problem is an accumulation of fat around the organs. This is dangerous for a whole host of physiological reasons, but the worst is that it tends to show up significantly in cardiac arrest cases.
The way to get at it is to cut down on your overall body fat – not attempt to spot train. You know how to lose belly fat - eat less and exercise more. What it takes is cutting back enough on fats and carbohydrates and other high calorie foods while monitoring the amount and duration of your exercising.
If you bump up your level of physical activity even one notch, it can make a significant difference in the amount and speed of your weight loss. Simply going for a 20 minute walk a mere 3 days a week can account for the loss of 10 to15 pounds over the course of a year.
Look for places where you could add a little exercise to your daily activities and get ready to feel better and look better. The only way to get at dangerous belly fat is to amp up your cardio routines and burn more calories than you consume. Get your hands on a Body Mass Index (BMI) chart and plot your fat level. It should be in the mid to low twenties if you want to experience optimum health.
