It is normal for the human body to have fat tissue. But did you know that too much belly fat can affect your health? The one type of fat tissue is right under the skin, but there is another type of fat that is much deeper. It is around your lungs, heart, liver and other organs and it’s known as visceral fat.
Losing both types if body fat is possible by changing a lifestyle, or by some surgical procedures such as professional tummy tuck Sydney at Breast & Body Clinic. People who usually undergo this kind of procedure are those who managed to lose a significant amount of weight, but still have some fat tissue on their abdomen, and also women after pregnancy.
Surgery will also remove your excess skin
How much abdomen fat do you have?
If you want the precise results of the amount of your body fat, you can get an MRI and CT scan. For those who would like to avoid this kind of check, there is another way. Take a measuring tape, wrap it in the level of your belly button, and check your girth. The best way to do it is by standing up and make sure that the tape is at the right level.
The results you are looking for are less than 35 inches if you are a woman, and less than 40 inches if you are a man. This test will show you where you at with the abdominal fat, and if your result is over boundaries than you should take some actions in reducing fat tissue because you most probably have more visceral fat around your organs which can be dangerous in the long term.
Some men are struggling with bigger breasts, as this goes alongside with belly fat. Reducing breast fat quickly is possible, and you can check https://www.bbclinic.com.au/gynaecomastia-male-breast-reduction/ to see how it’s done.

What can you do?
Diet. Get your body enough fiber. Some studies have shown that eating food rich with fiber will lead to low amounts of belly fat and with that, visceral fat. Make sure to avoid processed food, and consume more vegetables, fruit, and water.
Exercise. Aerobic exercises are the best for losing belly fat, and overall fat. Try to exercise at least 30 minutes 5 times a week, or one hour three times a week. It is important that you bring up your heart rate for at least 30 minutes.
Sleep. It is very important that you get at least 6 or 7 hours of sleep. One research shows that people who get this amount of sleep will have less visceral fat than the people who sleep 5 or less hours, or 8 and more.
Stress. Finding the way that works for you in stress releasing will hugely affect your body weight.
There are many factors that affect body weight, so for making long-lasting results, you should change your lifestyle. For fast solutions, there is always surgery.
