Visceral fat: Reduce animal fat in your diet. Otherwise, start aerobic work out. If you do it on treadmill, make sure you bring your heart rate to the fat burning mode level. Do it no less than 30 minutes a day, no less than 5 x/week. Avoid unhealthy calories - sweets, fast food, soft drinks. Push 0 calorie foods - veggies. Add fruit and plenty of water. ...Read more
Hi my body visceral fat lvl is high for the past two years. I lift 5 days a week, sleep 7 hours daily and have balanced diet. Why? I'm worry. Pls hlp
How do you LOOK?: I'd be less concerned with numbers purporting to give measurements than how you actually look. As a weight lifter, you're well-aware of how much surface fat you have and whether this robs you of definition. If you are trim / look lean and do not have an obvious pot belly, I would ignore both calculations and the "high tech scales" that gave you this result. ...Read more

How does stress, and cortisol increase the amount of visceral fat? Does it make you eat more, alsoadds sub. Fat, or it makes you gain it around organs?
Not that simple: Stress and steroids causes weight gain but you can't direct the fat to the areas it will go. Our body makes cortisol (steroids) when under stress causing many reactions to occur. Eating fried foods, fatty foods and not exercising causes weight gain that will distribute itself throughout your body and go to areas around your vital organs and under your skin. So you will lose your shape ; health ...Read more

Is there a medical procedure for losing visceral fat? It's usually the last to go. Due to health reasons I accumulatd a lot.
First I need to know your BMI from your height and weight. If you do not now it, please provide me with information. Surgery comes after failure of standard medical management. Patients are subjected to a psychiatric assessment, and within each team a work up is performed.
Surgery now days has changed very much, is usually performed using endoscopic techniques, and the complications are low. ...Read more

I have a belly that protrudes about 2 inches. How do I know how much of this is visceral fat and how much of it sub cutaneous fat?

Probably: It seems like your fat percentage is a little high. However, your overall body weight is very low, and maintenance of a low body weight reduces risk. It would be better to focus more of your calorie intake on low inflammatory proteins and complex carbohydrates; simple carbs promote visceral fat deposition and also the deposition of high percentages of fat in general. TY for this fun question! ...Read more

Does small amounts of second hand smoke cause visceral fat accumulation? I know that smoking itself increases visceral fat, but what of this variety?
Not that I know of: Am unaware of any evidence that associates second hand smoke with anything like that, particularly if in small amounts. Do your best to keep your home, or at least your living space, smoke free, and ask smokers not to do so in your vicinity, but don't think it is related. Visceral fat, for the most part, is influenced by diet and exercise, and to heredity to some extent. ...Read more
Because of excessive visceral fat accumulation due to medical issues, are there any procedures like laparascopic (supracolic) omentectomy that will work (safe)? Or any other medical treatments? What kind of specialist could I consult? Not obese. .
More info needed: How was this diagnosed and are you having any symptoms? The momentum can be easily removed with an open operation, and it might be possible via laparoscope, depending on the size of the momentum. The question is what symptoms are you having, there may be another problem as well. A general surgeon would be the one to consult. ...Read more
Hard belly sticking out (pot belly).Iv always had a belly like that. Its hard&sticks out when standing&flat laying. Visceral fat or weak muscles?

Cardio Mix: You can not target the abdomen specifically for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue to lose (not everyone does), then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more
Fat Depots: These 2 areas are referred to as fat depots. Natural areas that the body prefers to store fat for later use when food is low. These are typically the harder places to lose fat because the body planes it that way. It will only pull fat from those areas when absolutely necessary and starving oneself to try and get the fat off will not work. The body will just burn muscle. Exercise and water... ...Read more
