Belly fat has quite a few nicknames – Jelly Belly, Muffin Top, Spare Tire, Santa Belly, Beer Belly. We’ve heard the derogatory terms and know exactly what they mean. Some doctors even refer to belly fat as the apple shape, which doesn’t sound all that bad. But whether derogatory or not, they all mean the same thing – too much fat around the middle of the body that either sticks out noticeably or flops down over our belts.
But just what is belly fat and why should you be concerned at all?
Fat actually has two labels – visceral and subcutaneous. The word subcutaneous means beneath the skin. The subcutaneous fat is the fat you can see as what’s commonly called cellulite. Some people refer to cellulite as lumps or flab, but it’s all the same. The subcutaneous fat, while unsightly, is not nearly as dangerous to a person’s health as visceral fat.
Belly fat is scientifically known as visceral fat. It’s also been called intra-abdominal fat which means fat that you carry in your abdomen and it’s deep in the body surrounding your internal organs. Now you are beginning to see why it is such a dangerous fat to have.
Consider what this fat does to your liver. Your liver works to transform fat into substances you need but it also transforms fat into cholesterol in your body. Not the good kind either and we all know what bad cholesterol does to our arteries.
