Visceral Fat is the Culprit!

As we gain weight around the middle, the adipose cells (fat cells) increase in size rather than number. They just get larger and larger until they are on the point of bursting. This is typical of the weight gain you experience when you become insulin resistant. As this weight gain is associated with the other symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome (also known as Syndrome X) it is increasingly being referred to as the "Killer Fat". Sounds ominous, eh?

Somehow we need to overcome the complacency that has led people to believe that abdominal obesity isn't really all that bad.

"After all look at all those stomachs bigger than mine" and

"Surely those companies wouldn't be allowed to advertise and sell those products if they were really bad for me".

Both of those sentiments are a product of the times we live in where people don't want to accept responsibilty for their own actions.

That, and the persistant marketing messages we are bombarded with daily by companies with a vested interest in encouraging us to savour their highly processed foodstuffs. The sheer frequency and pervasiveness of these cleverly targeted messages can wear down the defences of the average consumer.

The foods themselves have been cleverly constructed to ensure that "too much is never enough". Are you aware how much effort goes into engineering fast food to ensure that we don't feel sated too soon? Enhancing the desire to come back for more is the primary objective.

An understanding of the importance of the glycemic index and how some foods can make you feel full for much longer than others is crucial to learning how to lose belly fat.

As the abdominal fat cells increase in size they begin to lose functionality. As they also become resistant to insulin, the level of fat in your blood stream increases in the form of triglycerides. This condition induces additional stress on the pancreas' beta cells (lipotoxicity) and increases the inflammation of the arteries.

The seriousness of this condition is why doctors are beginning to refer to abdominal fat cells as being metabolically active and damaging to our health.

Given that 65% of the populations of USA, UK and Australia are now classified as overweight or obese, this is a message that needs to be loud and clear.

So how do we get rid of it? Bios Life Slim is the simple solution...

What is Visceral Fats?
Visceral fat is different from other body fat. Visceral fat, also called intra-abdominal fat, refers to the fat that surrounds the internal organs. Subcutaneous fat, on the other hand, is body fat that is close to the skin's surface and is considered less dangerous, and easier to lose, than visceral fat.

Studies have shown that those with visceral fat are more susceptible to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and hypertension. Sedentary people, smokers and drinkers have been shown to have more intra-abdominal fat, or visceral fat, than active people who are non-smokers and non-drinkers. Stress may also be a factor in the storage of visceral fat on the body.

Visceral fat is harder to lose than subcutaneous fat because it is more deeply embedded in the body's tissues. Visceral fat is only measured accurately by an imaging machine that can see how much of the abdomen is made up of visceral fat. A person may be within a healthy weight range, but still have too much intra-abdominal fat around the internal organs.

The liver metabolizes visceral fat and releases it into the bloodstream as cholesterol. Harmful, or "bad" cholesterol, which is Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), builds up into a plaque that blocks the arteries. Losing weight through proper diet and effective exercise can help reduce visceral fat. How much fat a person eats does matter as studies have shown that those who eat 30% or more of their diets as fat usually have high amounts of visceral fat.

Bios Life Slim helps to target those area and make you lose those stubborn fats around your belly area. As the fats are surrounding the internal organ thus its requires times and discipline of consistenly consuming Bios Life Slim to burn those fats away. Regular walking will help experdite those results.
