Talk about ugly stuff! It took me a while to look at the model of visceral fat, much less pick it up! And to think I’ve been carrying it around in large quantities, that’s just WORSE than the sugar picture I took a while back.
What is visceral fat? WiseGEEK does a great job of explaining not only what it is but why it is scary stuff. Here’s an excerpt, but I’d encourage you to read the whole link:
“Visceral fat, or abdominal fat, is a type of body fat that exists in the abdomen and surrounds the internal organs. Everyone has some, especially those who are sedentary, chronically stressed, or maintain unhealthy diets. A different type of fat — subcutaneous fat — which builds up under the skin, has less of a negative impact on health and is easier to lose than visceral fat. In fact, excessive deposits of visceral fat are associated with many serious health problems including cardiovascular disease, types 2 diabetes, and increased blood pressure.”
One of the things I love about BeNew is that the product is designed to go after the subcutaneous fat AND the harder to fight visceral fat! That’s part of what makes this product about HEALTH and not just losing weight. When you understand the ramifications of the damage visceral fat does, suddenly losing weight becomes less of a vanity issue and more about life-saving changes.
Below is my off-the-cuff attempt at talking about visceral fat. I was just winging it and said a couple of things incorrectly. The main one is I said I’d carried around 50 pounds of visceral fat. NOT true. It just sort of popped out of my mouth and I realized what I said too late to pull it back. I just dropped 50 plus pounds of fat, most of it subcutaneous and some of it visceral! But the fat blob in my hand still makes an impacting statement.
I almost didn’t share this due to the mistakes, but hey, we’re all friends here, right? The point is I want YOU to know about the dangers of this nasty killer and take back your health!
Attack visceral fat before it wins its attack on you!

Oi. I got some to get rid of too. You look so amazing.
Even really thin people have visceral fat . . . so it’s something we can all work on! The article I linked to mentions that it takes cardio, not just stuff like sit-ups to help fight the visceral stuff.
