What to do about abdominal fat

Despite its archaic sound, "middle-age spread" is a growing problem. Women have a higher fat-to-body weight ratio in their middle years than men. Extra pounds tend to gather around the belly.

Previously, we may have accepted these changes as part of aging. But we've been warned that waistlines increase health hazards. More so than subcutaneous fat, abdominal, or visceral, fat is a major source of many health issues

Visceral fat increases metabolic abnormalities, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes risk. It is linked to breast cancer and gallbladder surgery in women.

How can we fix tubby stomachs? A lot, turns out. Moderate-intensity physical activity for at least 30 minutes each day (and possibly 60 minutes) is the first step to weight loss and belly fat reduction

 Weightlifting may also reduce abdominal fat. Sit-ups tighten abdominal muscles but don't burn visceral fat.

Diet matters too. Consider portion size and choose complex carbohydrates (fruits, veggies, and whole grains) and lean protein over white bread, refined-grain pasta, and sugary drinks. 

Also, replacing saturated and trans fats with polyunsaturated fats can assist.

Scientists want to develop stomach fat-targeting drugs. Experts say lifestyle, especially exercise, is the greatest strategy to fight visceral fat.
