What kind of fat is there?

There are 2 types of fat: sub­cu­ta­neous and vis­cer­al. You can eas­i­ly feel the first one your­self: it is soft and fills the space under the skin, form­ing folds. Vis­cer­al fat is already less notice­able: it envelops the inter­nal organs. Most often, vis­cer­al fat over­takes mid­dle-aged men: because of it, a large round bel­ly grows due to a seden­tary lifestyle, overeat­ing and abuse of high-calo­rie alco­hol.

Is visceral fat the most dangerous?

This is tru­ly the most dan­ger­ous type of fat deposits: vis­cer­al fat pro­duces tox­ins that cause chron­ic inflam­ma­tion, raise blood sug­ar lev­els and destroy the body as a whole. The less vis­cer­al fat, the bet­ter. How­ev­er, you won’t be able to deter­mine its quan­ti­ty your­self: you will have to do a CT or MRI.

Measure your waist

If you are not chas­ing exact indi­ca­tors, then take a tape mea­sure and mea­sure your body cir­cum­fer­ence along the waist line: the risk group for pre­dis­po­si­tion to the for­ma­tion of vis­cer­al fat includes women with a girth of 80 cen­time­ters or more, as well as men with a waist of 94 cen­time­ters or more.

What is more dangerous: a round belly or hanging sides?

Soft folds and sides indi­cate that you are deal­ing with sub­cu­ta­neous fat. You should also get rid of it, but it will be clear­ly less dan­ger­ous than vis­cer­al fat in a firm, round bel­ly.
