Stomach fat is an issue for a great deal of Canadians. A paunchy tummy can appear after a small weight gain or childbirth and is often resistant to diet and exercise. Belly fat can come with aging as you approach menopause or andropause (male menopause).
Stomach fat or visceral fat is also the most dangerous type of fat to develop as it can lead to:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
- Colorectal cancer
- Sleep apnea
- High blood pressure
Most common causes of stomach fat include:
- Poor diet – eating foods high in carbs and sugar, drinking fruit juice and soda can slow your metabolism to cause weight gain
- Consuming too much alcohol
- Lack of exercise
