Do you carry extra weight around your midsection? Visceral fat, also known as belly fat, doesn’t just have a negative impact on appearance, but is also one of the most dangerous fats to your health. Belly fat has been linked to everything from an increased risk of heart disease, to type 2 diabetes, cancer, and even Alzheimer's disease.
But the good news is just making small lifestyle changes can dramatically decrease this harmful fat. Increasing your intake of foods rich in nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acid, and even vitamin D can dramatically help to shrink your waistline. In fact, researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found eating foods rich in soluble fiber, such as vegetables and beans, can help reduce visceral fat, or belly fat, around the midsection. The study found that incorporating these foods into your diet and making key lifestyle changes can have a big health impact.
