The belly fat is the most problematic body fat and believe it or not, even people with flat abs have it. It is a completely normal thing, but if you have it in excessive amounts it can affect your overall health. This fat is not only problematic to lose it but it also affects the health in ways that no other body fat can.
Too much body fat, like for instance the visceral fat which surrounds the body organs and puffs the stomach into a “beer gut” is a predictor of various diseases like insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers.
Even though it is believed that overweight people are the ones that suffer from diseases, this is not always the case as there are many overweight people who are in excellent health. In fact, there are plenty of normal weight people who experience metabolic issues related to obesity.
