Do you feel like a total slob just because you have a ton of fat around the waist area? Fear no more, for we have got just what you need for a flat and healthy belly. One of the most stubborn areas targeted by excess weight happens to be the belly, and it might be detrimental to your health, say experts.
One of the worst places your body can store fat in your midsection, as it carries a strong risk factor for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and more. More frustrating is the fact that women hang onto more belly fat than men, and find it harder to lose it.
Women have up to nine times more alpha adrenergic receptors in their fat cells, and estrogen increases their activity. The stress hormone is also one of the main culprits for fat storage around the midsection.
