Belly Fat in Albany, NY

One of the biggest problem areas for men and women is the belly. Patients in and around the Albany, New York area who are looking for help to tone and firm up their abdomen muscles can visit Lipo Spa.

Many people find that even if they are near or at their ideal weight, they still need to lose belly fat. Even underweight people can sometimes have a belly “pouch” around their midsections, caused by bloating or skin stretching during pregnancy.

Subcutaneous vs. Visceral Fat

There are two types of fat present in the abdomen. Subcutaneous fat is found just under the surface of the skin. Visceral fat surrounds and protects internal organs. Some visceral fat is necessary, but too much can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Both types of fat have to be reduced to flatten the belly. To help reduce the amount of subcutaneous fat you can make modifications to your diet by reducing sugars and starches. Meanwhile, in order to get rid of extra visceral fat you need to reduce your overall body weight. Subcutaneous fat can be removed through one of the non-invasive liposuction procedures offered at Lipo Spa. Those procedures will not, however, help with excess visceral fat.

The Effect of Body Shape on Stomach Fat

How you lose belly fat can also be determined by your body shape. If your body shape is naturally an inverted triangle (your lower body is significantly smaller than your upper body), you may have more visceral fat around your abdomen. Because of this, you may take longer to lose abdominal fat than a person with a naturally pear-shaped body. People with pear-shaped bodies tend to carry fat around their hips and thighs.

More men have an inverted triangle shape body than women and are more likely to carry extra weight around their abdomen. Meanwhile, post-menopausal women may also begin to develop extra weight around the abdomen due to lower levels of estrogen.

Common Causes of Belly Fat

Along with being overweight, there are many other reasons that you may have extra belly fat. As we age, we tend to develop extra fat around our abdomen. Pregnancy can sometimes split a woman’s linea alba muscle, which runs down the center of the abdomen in half. This results in a rounded belly appearance.

Other causes of extra belly fat include:

  • Poor posture
  • Not enough physical activity/ a sedentary lifestyle
  • Having more than three alcoholic drinks each day
  • Stress
  • A diet high in saturated fat and refined carbohydrates
  • Bloating
  • Hormonal changes

"I am a woman who has struggled with weight my entire life. I’ve battled with the scale for as long as I can remember.
