What You Don’t Know about Belly Fat
When diet and exercise aren’t helping you lose belly fat, non-invasive medical fat reduction treatments may be your solution. But to burn your belly fat, which kind of fat, subcutaneous fat or visceral fat, do you need to treat? The type of belly fat you want to reduce determines the appropriateness of the medical treatment.
When you can pinch the fat you want to remove, you may have some subcutaneous fat. Located just under the surface of your skin, you can “pinch an inch” of subcutaneous fat, whereas visceral fat is found deep in your abdomen wrapped around your internal organs.
Reduce Subcutaneous Fat with Sculpsure®
The remarkable non-invasive body contouring procedure, Sculpsure®, reduces up to 24% of the fat in the treated area in just one treatment. Sculpsure® is the most advanced technology for fat reduction. Sculpsure® causes the death (apoptosis) of the fat cells causing a permanent fat cell loss. Learn more about Sculpsure®.
You may have some visceral fat if you have a large waist and a protruding belly. If you have a large belly that’s hard to the touch, you may have visceral fat. Visceral fat accumulates deep within your abdomen and surrounds your internal organs, including your liver, pancreas and kidneys.
Why Visceral Fat is Dangerous
Visceral fat does more than make you cringe when you look in the mirror. It raises the risk for multiple serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and stroke. Storing excess fat around your organs, visceral fat produces harmful chemicals and interferes with the regulation of your appetite, your weight and even your brain function.
Reduce Visceral Fat
Surgical treatments, like liposuction and tummy tucks, do not treat visceral fat. Similarly, most non-invasive fat reduction treatments cannot penetrate to the depth necessary to reach all of the visceral fat. Radiofrequency fat reduction provides some reduction. Radiofreqency technology can penetrate deeply enough to effect some of the visceral fat.
Lipo-Sculpt RF, utilizes radiofrequency energy. The radiofrequency energy treatment works by damaging the fat cell membrane leading to a shrinking of the fat cell. Lipo-Sculpt RF requires multiple treatments, 6-12 weekly treatments, depending on your needs.
Diet and Exercise ‘a Must’ to Reduce Visceral Fat
Though you can reduce subcutaneous fat with Sculpsure® without the need for extreme dieting and exercise, you must diet and exercise to reduce visceral fat. Research suggests that dieting alone will not lead to loss of visceral fat; rather, losing visceral fat requires a combination of exercising and healthy eating. Luckily, you can accelerate the loss of visceral fat with Lipo-Sculpt RF.
Fat Burning Diet®
Studies show that low-carb, ketogenic diets are more effective at reducing visceral fat than other diets. Designed by a physician, Sculpt Away’s Fat Burning Diet® produces the natural metabolic state of ketosis (a term describing the process of burning fat for energy) leading to a faster weight loss.
Aerobic Exercise, ‘Cardio’
Research shows that you can achieve a loss of visceral fat by combining ‘moderate-intensity’ aerobic exercises with a low-carb ketogenic diet. Moderate exercise is defined as brisk walking, which you should do at least three times a week.
Supercharge your Visceral Fat Loss
Most of us think of extra body fat as a nuisance we want to banish to look and feel better, but visceral fat jeopardizes our health. You can reduce visceral fat with a combination of diet and exercise, but you can supercharge your efforts by including Lipo-Sculpt RF.
