Visceral fat

Also known as organ fat, visceral fat is stored around your internal organs in your abdominal region, including your heart, liver and intestines.

Subcutaneous fat

Stored directly below your skin, subcutaneous fat is the type of fat where you can “pinch an inch” from your belly, arms and thighs.

What may cause Visceral fat?

One of the biggest factors that contribute to the amount of visceral fat in the body is a diet high in carbohydrates, such as sugar and white breads, and bad fats, including deep-fried foods, fast foods and margarine.


Visceral fat hides within the stomach cavity and covers our internal organs, causing unseen damage. As the amount of visceral fat increases, it pushes against the firm abdominal wall, causing the waistline to expand. It is susceptible to growing to dangerous levels in the body simply because we are unable see it externally.

4 tips to reduce visceral fat:

Healthy Diet

Avoid foods that are high in sugar and saturated fats, such as confectionery and fried foods. A healthy diet consisting of lean proteins, fruits, vegetables and complex carbohydrates such as whole grains is crucial to reduce and keep off visceral fat.

Exercise

Physical inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle contribute greatly to increased visceral fat and belly fat. A great way to lower visceral fat level is through fitness exercises. Raise your heart rate by doing cardiovascular exercises such as aerobics, and improve your muscle tone through strength training. 

Stress management

Cortisol, a stress hormone that is released into the body increases the amount of visceral fat your body stores. Try effective relaxation techniques such as meditation, breathing exercises and yoga for improved mental and physical wellbeing.
