A study published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology has provided even more information about the kind of fat that leads to increased risks of heart disease. The fat just under the skin and the fat¬†deeper inside the abdomen both increase risks, but “individuals with greater increases in fat inside the abdominal cavity showed substantial increases in metabolic risk factors including high blood sugar, high triglycerides and low HDL, or good cholesterol.”¬† Losing excess belly fat is an important factor in preventing heart disease. How do you maintain healthy weight to prevent the risks of heart disease?
