What Are Visceral Fat And Subcutaneous Fat?

Hi, friends of SlimGourmet! Happy Early Week and hope you are having a good start to the week. Some of you might know the difference between visceral and subcutaneous fat. For women, the presence of these fats are kind of worrying, moreover if it is in high levels in your body. These kinds of fat can affect your health and body composition, which relates to your physical appearance. However, what exactly is visceral fat and subcutaneous fat? Let's find out.

Visceral fat is the fat stored in your abdomen and surrounds your vital organs like stomach, liver, gut, heart, and kidneys. Central obesity can lead to high levels of visceral fat causing an increased risk of degenerative diseases such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and alzheimer. Visceral fat can be reduced by having a good dietary habit and exercising regularly. Different from visceral fat, subcutaneous fat is fat that is below your skin and affects your physical appearance but not health. Generally, subcutaneous fat is higher in thighs, hips, arms, and stomach. For people who are overweight or obesity, losing 5-10% of their body weight will help lower both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat as well as reduce their risk of degenerative diseases.
