Whether you call it a beer gut, fat stomach or belly fat, the condition of which we speak isn’t just unpleasant to look at and live with. Beyond aesthetics, these layers of abdominal fat are very hazardous to one’s physical and mental health. The condition greatly increases your probability of falling victim to diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack and stroke. What’s more, studies have shown a direct connection with the increased risk of developing cancer, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. But take heart! If you think an expanding waistline inevitably comes with age, think again. Your growing girth is not preordained, and if the situation has gotten out of hand, there is something you can do about it.
Before we get to the solution, however, we should first examine the nature of fat. There are two kinds. Subcutaneous fat is stored right under the skin, while visceral fat surrounds abdominal organs deep inside your body. The latter is the really dangerous kind of fat because it acts like an organ, secreting hormones and triglycerides that impair the body’s ability to function properly.
Here’s the good news though: No matter what your midsection measurements, it’s never too late to lose. The highly-touted HCG Diet delivers spectacular results. In fact, when following this weight-loss protocol, the visceral fat is the first to go. Patients can easily lose up to a pound a day, and as needed, multiple courses of the diet can lead to the loss of 100 pounds or more.
Then what? Keeping the pounds off calls for making the diet’s healthy food choices part of your ongoing lifestyle. And after you’ve shrunk down to size, there are numerous effective ways to tone, tighten, smooth, and contour your body. Even after reaching your weight-loss goal, stubborn spot fat and cellulite may remain in thighs, buttocks, hips, back, arms and neck. To target these remaining problem areas, options include surgical liposuction and non-surgical body sculpting, where Danik recommends Lipolaser, Endermologie, Mesotherapy, Carboxy Therapy and Body Wrapping.
