The Dangers of Your Belly Fat

Did you know that the vast majority of women have excess abdominal fat?

The first thing that most women think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body.

However, what most women don’t realize is that excess abdominal fat, in particular, is not only ugly but is also a dangerous risk factor to their health.

Scientific research including Harvard Medical School [1] has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly more dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdomen. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. 

Both subcutaneous fat (outer layer) and visceral fat (inner layer) in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat.

Both of them greatly increase the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.(2)

Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that they are thought to produce a greater amount of harmful chemicals, such as excessive hormones and toxins. And because their fat cells are so close to the organs, especially the liver, it can be damaging to all your body’s system and health.

It’s no longer just about the appearance. Your quality of life and loved ones is at risk and reducing your abdominal fat should be your TOP priority!

There’s just no way around it.

Besides, a side-effect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive ugly abdominal fat is that your stomach will flatten out, and if you lose enough stomach fat, you will be able to visibly see those sexy defined abs that everyone wants.

So what gets rid of extra belly fat?

Is there actually a REAL solution beyond all of the gimmicks and hype that you see in ads and on commercials for “miracle” fat loss products?

The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution.

There are no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster.

Not even liposuction can remove the visceral fat. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either.

You can’t spot reduce your stomach fat by using any of these worthless contraptions. It simply doesn’t work that way.

The ONLY solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body.

Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right.

Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick.

The majority of women that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this everyday at the gym.

Most women will do their typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their belly fat.

Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.

Well, the good news is that we’ve spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it with countless women to see what works to really stimulate belly fat loss.

The entire solution… all of the nutritional strategies, as well as training sequences, exercise combinations, and more have all been compiled in Fitwirr’s 4-Week Bikini Body Express Plan.

Keep in mind that the point of this whole program is NOT abdominal exercises (that is only a very small portion of it).

The main point of this program is showing you the absolute most effective strategies for losing your stubborn stomach fat and slimming down all over, so you can get rid of that dangerous health risk, get a flatter more defined abs and achieve a leaner, sexier, healthier body. 

If you follow the guidelines, you WILL lose your belly fat that has been plaguing you for years. This is not guesswork… it is a proven system that works time and time again for many women.

If you apply it, the results will come. It’s really that simple.

The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.

We can help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra belly fat that is not only UGLY, but also DANGEROUS.

Don’t waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for MAJOR diseases.

Get rid of the dangerous and unwanted belly fat today and start enjoying your life.
