belly fat picDid you know that not all body fat is created equal? AND – not all abdominal fat is the same. In the belly there are 2 main types of fat – fat that builds just under the skin and fat that forms on and around the abdominal organs. Why is this important?

The fat that forms deep within the abdomen is more dangerous to your overall well being. It is associated with diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease. The good new is – fat buried deep in the abdomen is the easiest fat to loose! It is most responsive to diet & lifestyle changes that help to shed fat cells and build lean muscle.
