Linda Misleh Wagner: Future Former Fatty

All Fats Are Not Created Equally Part I – FFF #193

All fats are not created equally. Our bodies are made up of two types of fat, subcutaneous and visceral. Do you know the differences between the two fats? Which type of fat is a healthier fat? Is one healthier than the other?

Let’s begin by defining the two types of fat. Subcutaneous fat is the type of fat that lies under the skin. It is the type of fat you can pinch. It is the fat with which we develop belly rolls and muffin tops.

Visceral fat is the fat that surrounds your organs. Interestingly enough, visceral fat is an organ as well. This type of fat secretes hormones. These type of hormones secreted are negative and lead to insulin resistance, i.e. diabetes and heart disease.

So what type of fat would you rather have more of? “Wow, Linda”, you must be thinking. “I don’t want any type of excess fat on my body.”

All I am asking is, if you had too choose, which would you choose? The answer would be subcutaneous of course. It is easier to rid the body of subcutaneous fat than visceral fat.

You might think the best measurement of body fat would be to find out your BMI. Not true. Grab a tape measure. Your waist size is a far better guide to knowing if you are at risk for diabetes and heart disease than your BMI.

Women should not exceed a 35 inch waist, and men should not exceed a 40 inch waist. The more belly fat you have, the more likely you are to be at risk for a heart attack or to develop diabetes.

Women in menopause will add inches to their waist due to the change of level of hormones. Believe it or not, this adding of thickness in the waistline actually raises the risk of heart disease in women higher than men in this same age bracket.

At any given time, you will hear women complaining about their weight in their butt and thighs. They may not have a belly, but these women hate their fat butt and fat thighs. Guess what ladies. Count your blessings. Pear shaped women who carry weight in their butt and thighs rather than their apple shaped friends who carry weight in their bellies are at a far less risk for diabetes and heart disease. It’s all about the secretion of bad hormones.

Forget doing stomach crunches to get rid of belly fat. There is only one true way to bring down belly fat. Diet and exercise. According to a very good study done by John Hopkins University, the best diet to rid us of belly fat is low carb dieting. Patients lost 10 pounds more of belly fat than their counterparts who stuck to a low fat diet. Of course you already know this to be true. That is why you follow Aaron Snyder’s plan. It works especially at losing belly fat.

In part two of comparing the equality of fats, I will discuss the differences of fats in food. I hope you follow along and give me some feedback.

Until we meet again, this is Linda Misleh Wagner, Future Former Fatty.
