Five Things You Must Know About Deep Belly Fat

Trying to lose that stubborn fat that is camping around your midsection? Knowing these five things can help you comprehend deep belly fat, and to understand what you are up against.

1. Everyone has those last few stubborn pounds they want to lose. Trying a new workout routine, a new fad diet or keeping up with the same diet does not always help shed this weight. The problem with losing some of this weight is that it is deep belly fat. Deep belly fat is different than other factors that affect someone's weight; for one thing, deep belly fat is known to cause serious health problems. Because of the stubborn nature of deep belly fat, it is harder to get rid of.

2. Deep belly fat requires a different approach than one that works on water weight or other types of fat that we retain in our bodies. The most important thing to remember when dealing with deep belly fat is that once you lose it, the result is worth the effort. You will know that you have optimum total body health. The fruits of your labor will mean not just great looks, but you are healthy now, and that most certainly means a longer life.

3. Deep belly fat is exactly what the name implies: fat cells that have built up deep inside our abdominal organs. These areas can include the area around the intestines and stomach, as well as below the skin in a deep layer. This is the layer of fat that is seen covering abdominal muscles but not necessarily why we have our fat appearance. It is the combined fat deposits that make up that fat appearance or buldge. Despite doing core and specialized exercises, those beautiful sculpted abs can easily be hidden by deep belly fat that needs blasting. Just thinking about already having a solid set of six pack abs but can't see them because of that deep belly fat concealing our muscles is just not something we want to contemplate.

4. Losing this deep belly fat is the most difficult fat that we can lose on our entire body. Once the thin layers of fat around the body are trimmed and water weight disappears, it is ideal to start focusing on losing deep belly fat. This is when the rest of you is already toned and trim from doing a workout routine comprised of strength training (resistance) and other exercises, and you have more muscle mass to burn more calories from fat. Deep belly fat will melt away once the rest of your body is fit.

5. Deep belly fat is different than other types of fat and weight in that it takes several sessions of resistance training on a weekly basis to shed this weight. Water weight is an excess of water stored by the body due to the types of food ingested. A diet rich in salt can add to water weight. This type of “fat” can be taken care of by a change in diet and some general toning. The appearance of fat could also be due to over eating. Portion control can work on this type of appearance. Without portion control you will only gain deeper belly fat.

Deep belly fat is hard to get rid of because of the misconceptions between all different types of fat. Regular aerobic workouts will not take care of this fat alone. In order to rid one’s self of deep belly fat, workouts must take place three to five times a week. Resistance workouts of various degrees of difficulty are ideal. A healthy diet is also important, including unprocessed grains as well as the daily recommendation of fruits, vegetables, and water. Working out can be tiring, so it is also important to have a cheat meal every once in a while to boost morale and stay on track.
