Stubborn! Does that ring a bell? No, we are not talking about kids, we are talking about fat. Fat that makes you look like you never really cared about your body. We all have had our fights with our underlying stubborn fat but the good news is that we can now get rid of fat with regular exercise.
A new research has found out that fat accumulated on the sides of internal organs can be shed off with regular and targeted exercises. This fat on the sides of liver, intestines and even stomach is known as visceral fat. Visceral fat is hidden and thus remains out of the possibility of losing as you can’t really feel it by touching your belly.
It is also important to lose visceral fat because it can affect your body functions, hormones and can cause serious diseases such as high blood pressure, heart problems and indigestion.
How To Measure Visceral Fat?
Although many doctors and health experts would say that a scan or an MRI can only truly indicate how much visceral fat you have, measuring your waist can also give you a fair idea of that. A general rule provided by work out specialists is that if your waist size is more than the recommended, that is 31.5 inches for women and 37 inches for men, you have visceral fat and which should be reduced.
