liposuctionIf you are considering liposuction to minimize abdominal fat, or have had this procedure, you may be interested in the findings of recent studies. According to research, individuals treated with liposuction may experience a new problem within just a few months of their procedure. This problem is visceral fat.

The Nature of Liposuction

The goal of liposuction is to gently and permanently remove unwanted fat cells from a target area. The tissue that is removed lies just beneath the surface. It is called subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat is different; it develops far deeper beneath the surface where it cannot be seen, but where it can cause ongoing problems for your shape – and for your health.

How to Tame your Tummy

Liposuction is a wonderful solution to lingering fat cells near the surface. To decrease hidden fat, you need only develop if you consistent habits.
Watch what you eat. Understanding the diet that is right for you can be a challenge. Some say low-fat diets are optimal. Other experts recommend eating a complete balance of protein fats and various micro nutrients. The truth is, your body will tell you what it needs. Pay attention to how you feel after you eat certain foods. It is likely that you will notice increased energy comes from whole, fresh foods.  This includes healthy servings of good fats. Good fats include poly-unsaturated fats in walnuts, coconut oil, and avocados.

Watch how you move. If we’re honest here, we have to admit that not many people really like to exercise. However, it is crucial to move on a daily basis if you want to prevent abdominal fat. Here’s the good news: you can reduce or avoid visceral fat with a simple 30-minute increase of your heart rate three times a week. If lifting weights is not your thing, that’s OK! Head to the yoga studio, the martial arts studio, or the dance studio. The point is to find the type of physical activity that you most enjoy. This way it will be easy to maintain your habit of regular exercise.

Watch your stress. The stress hormone cortisol is directly linked to belly fat. This is because there are more cortisol receptors in the abdomen. When you are chronically stressed, you will have chronically high cortisol, and this hormone will hoard fat cells around the midsection.
