Lots of people nowadays have excess abdominal fat. Most of them become self conscious, especially women, they tend to hide it with the help of stylistic clothing.

They did not realized that excess abdominal fat is not just hideous but is also a threatening risk factor to their health. Generally, it is unhealthy to have excess body fat in all parts of your body. But,  did you know that where that fat appear on your body has an implication? And, what is the most dangerous part to have excess fat? It is in the abdominal area.

If you have pear-shaped body, larger around the hips than round around the abdomen, you are harboring subcutaneous fat. These fats covers up your abdomen from being obvious, and positioned directly underneath the skin and on the top of the abdominal muscle.

More over, possessing an apple-shaped body is harboring visceral fat. These fats rest deeper in the abdomen, underneath your muscles and surrounding your organs. Have you noticed some men with “beer belly” appearance, with their abdomen protruding and if you push it, it is somewhat kind of hard? It is visceral fat!

To be pear-shaped is healthier than to be apple-shaped. But, having any of these shape is a serious health risk factor. Having excess abdominal fat increases your risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, sleep apnea, variety of cancers and other degenerative diseases.

If you possessed excess abdominal fat now it is not too late yet. Right diet, healthy lifestyle with much stress on exercise, some help from health specialist and a determination to get rid of that unwanted baggage will help you achieve your goal.
