Have You Heard of Visceral Fat? Its Trouble Baby!

Visceral Fat? That’s a big one. But if you want to stay healthy, you need to pay attention to it.

What is Visceral Fat? According to WebMD, Visceral fat is fat that wraps around your abdominal organs deep inside your body. You can’t always feel it or see it. In fact you may have flat tummy and still have visceral fat.

Why is visceral fat dangerous.
Too much body fat is not good for the health especially visceral fat because it leads to serious medical or terminal conditions. It raises the risks of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and high cholesterol, all conditions strongly linked to too much fat in the system.

How To Measure It
There’s no way to particularly measure or know how much of this dangerous fat is in your system since you could have  a flat tummy and still have visceral fat. Unless of course  you do an imaging test which you may not really need.

Nutritionists, medical researchers have suggested you use Body Mass Index(BMI)  to calculate how much you weigh relative to your height.

Some  Significant Clues
Waist size. This is an easy way to get a rough estimate. Wrap a tape measure around your waist over your belly button. (Don’t suck in your stomach!) In women, 35 inches or more is a sign of visceral fat. In men, it’s 40 inches. Warning: This is a crude tool, especially if you’re a very big person

Hip-to-waist ratio. You divide your waist size by your hip size. Some doctors think the number gives a good idea of your risk for visceral fat. But studies suggest it may be no better than a simple waist measurement.

Body shape
Hey, check yourself out in the mirror. 
 Where your body tends to store fat can offer you a clue. If you are shaped like an apple  (usually  among men,  rounded waistline  and slim legs) this may suggest more visceral fat.  Women are more likely to be pears having bigger hips and thighs. Research shows that upper body fat is more dangerous to your health, which might be one reason why women usually live longer than men. Who knows?

Getting Rid of It
Eat Healthy. Eating a  healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruits and whole grains may help reduce abdominal obesity. Avoiding saturated fats and big portions may also help.
Exercise. Frequently. Take long walks, do push ups…exercise…exercise and exercise.

Lastly
It’s good to see your doctor if you have concerns. He can check your blood pressure, heart rate and other vital signs. They also may test samples of your blood or pee to get a full picture of your condition.
