The two types of abdominal fat
There are two types of fat- subcutaneous fat and organ fat. Subcutaneous fat is between your skin and muscle. You can grasp and it feels soft. Organ fat is sitting around major organs like the heart, lungs, stomach and liver. Organ fat is also known as visceral fat.
Too much organ fat also hinders the functioning of our organs, thereby increasing the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and even cancer.
In short: Too much organ fat and subcutaneous fat together are the cause of a big belly.
What causes a big belly?
When you eat more calories than you consume, you are going to store fat. The place where you store the most fat is not entirely due to your genes.
Your body has a certain "state" which creates the abdominal fat. It is well know fact that the hormone cortisol has a lot to do with creation of abdominal fat.
Cortisol - which is the stress hormone - is produced by the body at the time of stress, lack of sleep or when we eat unhealthy food.
Yale university did a research study which showed that stress is a major contributor to belly fat. This happens due to function of the hormone cortisol.
Cortisol changes the way your body handles fat, by as much energy as possible to save around your abdomen because cortisol is most active in that part.
Also, cortisol is known to increase your appetite, making you likely to eat more.
Why exercises do not work on belly fat?
The biggest misconception about abdominal exercises is that they burn only belly fat. No matter what exercise you do, if you burn fat it never happens locally. You burn fat from all over your body.
Abdominal exercises strengthen the muscles in your abdominal area and have a stabilizing function, but they have little or no role in burning belly fat.
The truth is that abdominal exercises only strengthen the abdomen. If that is your goal, then you can go for abdominal exercises.
If you're mostly interested in burning belly fat, abdominal exercises will be of little help.
You do this not to be too heavy because the expansion of the waist circumference equally affects slim types and we are seeing more prevalent in women. Storing extra fat in the abdominal area is a fairly normal occurrence and natural body function to handle fat.
Often you may find that your stomach in the morning is not really bloated but gradually expands throughout the day and gets rounder and weaker is the afternoon and evening, and then still more convex after the meal.
This is not only because of our predominantly sedentary lifestyles but also certain food items such as processed food, soft drinks, too much carbohydrates and even certain fruit mixtures cause sagging belly.
