"Sit ups, planks, and ab machines won’t get rid of your belly bulge. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the abdominal exercises that do the trick. They can strengthen, tone and pull in a waist line underneath your fat, but the fat will remain. To flatten your stomach and lose the fat for good, you have to attack the belly fat from the inside out."
Sneaky Fat Layer:
The “inner tube” sitting around your midsection is not just an indicator of extra fat under the skin. Unlike other areas of the body, fat is not only stored underneath the skin, subcutaneously, but also in and around your organs, viscerally. This type of fat is dangerous and leads to many health problems, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. For women, there is an increased risk of gall bladder issues and a higher risk for breast cancer. Getting rid of that sneaky and dangerous belly fat will take a good clean up of your diet and a well-rounded exercise program.
