Excess Abdominal Fat is Not Only Ugly, but Extremely Dangerous to Your Health – This is More Than a Vanity Issue!

The difference between subcutaneous fat and the more deadly “visceral fat”… Plus the simple steps to REMOVE this fat permanently

by Mike Geary, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer

Although this picture depicts an overweight man, this article applies to dangerous types of fat inside the bodies of both men and women… and this discussion also applies even if you only have a slight amount of excess stomach fat.

Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? It’s true — as much as 70% of the population in some “westernized” countries such as the US and Australia are now considered either overweight or obese. 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 about showing off their body.

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 your health. Scientific research has clearly determined that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess 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 where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.

Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both types of fat greatly increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that studies show that it releases more inflammatory molecules into your system on a consistent basis.

One of the major reasons that some people accumulate more visceral fat than others can be from a high carbohydrate diet that leads to insulin resistance over time (years of bombarding your system with too much sugars and starches for your pancreas to properly handle the constant excess blood sugar) … and studies show that high fructose intake particularly from high-fructose corn syrup can be a major contributor to excess visceral fat.

So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat, including visceral fat?

Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right and the good news is that I’ve spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it “in the trenches” with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss.

I’ve actually even seen a particular study that divided thousands of participants into a diet-only group and an exercise & diet combined group. While both groups in this study made good progress, the diet-only group lost significantly LESS abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined group.

From my research, two of the most important aspects to getting rid of visceral fat are:

1. The use of high intensity forms of exercise and full-body resistance training. Low intensity cardio exercise simply isn’t as effective for removing visceral fat in particular. High intensity exercise such as interval training, sprints (bike sprints or running sprints), AND full-body weight training are very effective at helping to improve your body’s ability to manage glucose and increases insulin sensitivity, a crucial step in removing visceral fat.

These types of high intensity exercise routines are also very effective at increasing your fat-burning hormones and creating a hormonal environment conducive to burning off abdominal fat, including visceral fat.

2. In addition, it’s vitally important to get blood sugar under control to help restore insulin sensitivity through the right nutrition. This means greatly reducing sugars and refined starches in your diet (including fully eliminating any use of harmful high fructose corn syrup!), and focusing more of your diet on healthy fats (such as avocados, nuts, seeds, coconut fat, olive oil, grass-fed butter, free-range eggs, fatty fish and fish oils, etc), as well as increasing protein and fiber intake. The standard diet recommended by the government, which contains an unnaturally high grain intake is NOT conducive to controlling blood sugar and reducing visceral fat!

Reducing grain-based foods in your diet and getting more of your carbs from veggies and high fiber fruits such as berries can go a long way to helping to solve this problem.

Here is my New Picture…and the story of my journey so far…

Hi I’m Mindy Beall, and this is long, but have not really told my whole story yet.This is why I love Skinny Fiber so much.In 2001 I was Pregnant and diagnosis with Thyroid cancer. When she was 11 mnths old I had surgery and Radiation.Then again in 2004, they found more cancer, surgery and Radiation again.Since then I have not had energy at all.It took everything to just do what I needed to do, absolutely none for working out.So my weight has been a real issue. I am now Pre Menopausal, adding to the issue. LOL, and have been put on anxiety Meds, Which also make you gain weight, and my cholesterol is High. Then I lost my Husband, 5 yrs ago to a heart attack.Now you kinda know where I am coming from.

Having, and I mean, I have tried a lot of weight loss products, some making me feel so bad and jittery, yet none successfully worked.As, Probable most of you, I kept seeing Testimonies and such, on Facebook, for quite awhile. I knew this was just another weight loss Product, But finally the Testimonies of real People just got to me and I new, For health reasons, I needed to lose, or at least take it for the Enzymes and Fiber I knew I so needed. SF having a 30 day money back guarantee,at that time, now 90 day on the specials pkgs helped my decision to try. Thank God I took that chance,My first 90 days I lost 14 lbs and dropped a pants size, and I know, my weight loss might go slow with my Thyroid Meds.( Levothyroxin) but honestly the best part for me is, I FEEL WONDERFUL, I have energy, Good natural, feeling energy , I feel alive again, I have now been on SF for 3 1/2 years and am at a total of 25 lbs and so many inches, I am down 3 sizes completely.. I have 3 wonderful children, I still Homeschool my daughter, I Work From Home, with this Amazing Company, I have the most Incredible Boyfriend, we have our farm and all our animals. God has Blessed me with all this, and now finding Skinny Fiber I can finally enjoy all of it.
I am Skinny Fiber 4 Life.

I feel better, my cloths fit better, and with the help of SF I have really changed the way I eat and my whole outlook on life…Because of what it has done for me I have become so passionate in wanting to share this with everyone….

Baked Oatmeal Casserole
Total Time: 50 minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients
2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar(I use coconut sugar)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnut pieces
1 cup raspberries {any berries work}
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 cups milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, peeled, 1/2-inch slices

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F and generously spray the inside of a 10-1/2 by 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the walnuts, half the strawberries and half the chocolate. (Save the other half of strawberries, walnuts and chocolate for the top of the oatmeal).
In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.

Add the oat mixture to prepared baking dish. Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts and chocolate on top. Add the banana slices to the top then pour the milk mixture over everything. Gently shake the baking dish to help the milk mixture go throughout the oats.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the milk mixture has set. For an extra tasty top, sprinkle a tablespoon or so of extra brown sugar (coconut sugar)fb_img_1487511959065

If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

Be the person you could have been NOW!

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday! 🙂 Make it a GREAT one!
Today’s ACTION plan:too
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?…
One man in his late eighties was asked: “If you could come back and live the life of anyone, who would you want to come back as?”
His answer: “I would want to come back as the man I could have been, but never was.”
He went on to say, “This time I’d act with more courage. I wouldn’t allow my fear to turn me away from opportunities I didn’t take.
I’d risk more; I’d take the chances I wish I had. I’d allow myself to fail more, love more, and laugh more. This time, I’d be sure to live more.”
Wow. Don’t wait until you’re eighty and filled with regret.
Instead, be the person you “could have been” now.~Darren Hardy

DIY Alternative To The “Cone of Shame”!

This is one of the best ideas I have ever seen. Thank you

Sewchet

Back last Summer, Fifi had some mammary tumours removed and had to wear the Cone Of Shame for ten days. She hated it for the first few days, then gradually adapted to moving and sleeping with an unwieldy plastic funnel clipped to her neck.


This week, another trip to the Vet meant either another plastic cone, bandaging or some other method to prevent her from literally licking her wounds.

I found some leftover fleecy fabric from a nightshirt that No.3 Son made, and decided to make her a comfy coat instead. Whilst she already has several coats, none of them were long enough underbelly to cover the affected area.

So, for those of you who would rather not put your own dog through the trauma of The Cone, here’s a quick way to make a lick-prevention jacket.

Measure your dog around the widest part of her ribs, just behind the…
