The Truth About Belly Fat

Everyone has some belly fat, even people who have flat abs.

That’s normal. But too much belly fat can affect your health in a way that other fat doesn’t.
Some of your fat is right under your skin. Other fat is deeper inside, around your [heart], [lungs], [liver], and other organs.

It’s that deeper fat – called “visceral” fat – that may be the bigger problem, even for thin people.
