In this video, I walk you through how visceral fat differs from subcutaneous fat, what the dangers of elevated levels are, how you can lose visceral fat fast, and what the main areas are to help you keep visceral fat off your body over the long-term. So, get out your pen and paper and make some notes. (…or just use this description) 😉
*What Is Fat? (0:37)
Fat cells are essentially storage containers that store energy that can be used by the body at a later stage, for activities or natural bodily functions. When you eat, energy is being taken into the body by the food you eat (hence calories are a unit of energy). If you store more calories than you burn each day, you end up with constantly increasing fat stores (a belly)!
*What Is VISCERAL Fat? (1:32)
When your body takes in an excess of fat that is not being burned off through exercise or natural movement, you end up with stored fat. As well as storing under your skin, which is known as subcutaneous fat (the fat you can pinch), fat can go deep and be stored around your organs.
In small amounts, this is protective. In large amounts, this is toxic and dangerous! An increased amount of visceral fat can literally strangle your internal organs, reduce blood supply to your organs, and actually cause issues like fatty liver when the increase in fat cells in your blood goes inside your organs.
*How To Get Rid Of Visceral Fat (2:33)
Getting rid of visceral fat is done in pretty much the same way as losing fat in general, in that you should make sure you sleep enough, get enough water each day, follow a healthy meal plan and do more physical activity or formal exercise. Our guidelines for this, are:
• Sleep at least 7 hours per night
• Drink half your body weight in lbs, in oz’s of water
• Follow a sustainable meal plan →
• Follow a structured workout →
*How Does Exercise Help Me Lose Visceral Fat Quickly? (3:40)
Exercise will help you to improve the circulation throughout your entire body, so will help reach the deep fat cells to pull energy from there too. This will help to mobilize the energy contained in that deep visceral fat and pull it to our muscles so we can perform regular movement, physical activity, and formal workouts.
*How Will I Know I’m Losing Visceral Fat? (4:35)
Measuring your belly circumference is a good starting point to seeing if you’re losing visceral fat from your belly. If your belly circumference is shrinking, it’s very likely your visceral fat levels are also decreasing. This is a simple way to measure it, but is an effective way too. You can go further and actually have a DEXA scan on your body, which will identify the levels of visceral fat in your body. This is very expensive, but obviously much more accurate.
I hope this information has been helpful and valuable for you and has taught you the key areas of how to lose visceral belly fat. I wish you the best of luck on your journey and don’t forget we’re here for you all the way!
