Belly fat is a serious health concern

I know excess belly fat is a serious health issue and a vanity concern to my patients. I do worry about the excess belly fat I see on some of my clients because scientific research has shown that having excess fat in the abdominal area is dangerous and can lead to serious chronic health problems. 

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called
subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles. The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs.

Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat.

Both of them greatly increase the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

So for me, helping clients lose bellyfat is a  top priority,  not  because you’ll look and feel a lot better (although that’s a nice side
benefit), but because you’ll be at a lower risk for all types of chronic illnesses and diseases.

The good news is that there are some simple strategies that you can take to lose your bellyfat. One of the most important is taking a UltraMeal shake every morning.  UltraMeal is a medical food that helps the body decrease fat. Order UltraMeal at www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com
