Pictures are worth a thousand words.
🎙I sat down with @drseanomara and he explained the risks of different types of fat.
⚠️It’s healthy to have body fat, but not all fat is created equal.
🚨Visceral fat is body fat that’s stored in the abdominal cavity. It’s also near vital organs, including the liver, intestines and stomach.
🚨It can also build up in the arteries.
🚨Visceral fat is sometimes considered active fat as it can actively increase the risk of serious illness.
(In the video, pink is the visceral fat).
WHAT CAUSES VISCERAL FAT?
🍩A main component is processed carbs.
Subcutaneous fat is different. Belly fat can have subcutaneous fat, which is stored just under the skin. Subcutaneous fat is also found in the arms and legs whereas visceral isn’t as easy to see.
⚠️Subcutaneous fat isn’t dangerous like visceral fat.
HOW CAN YOU REDUCE VISCERAL (deadly) FAT?
❌ @drseanomara says removing all processed carbs is the key.
⚠️For some people even keeping in rice, honey and nut butter are still too many processed foods that cause visceral fat to remain.
🏃🏻♀️And while exercise doesn’t move the needle enough, sprinting has shown to also reduce visceral fat.
