“Visceral fat diet book” is popular


Recently, books on “visceral fat” have been selling well.
Such as Dr. Toshio Iketani’s “The best method to reduce visceral fat by a doctor who keeps
body fat rate of 10% even after the age of 50”, and Dr. Koji Ebe’s “Dieting to drop visceral fat
with certainty,” when doctors write about diet books on visceral fat, they become best sellers.

Dieting is something what many people want to do, which is same as before.
But considering that these two books mentioned above are best sellers, people’s wishes may
have evolved a bit since before that, they just wanted to lose weight but now they want to lose
visceral fat.

Three types of fat

A decade ago, visceral and subcutaneous fats were grouped together, and people just “wanted
to reduce fat”.
The title of the book is now specified as “drop visceral fat”.
In other words, it has been well recognized that “visceral fat is bad”, not just fat in general.

To clarify, fat includes “subcutaneous fat” immediately below the skin and “visceral fat” around
the stomach.
The purpose of measuring abdominal circumference in a medical checkup is to check the
status of this visceral fat.
Basically, there are two kinds of fat: subcutaneous fat and visceral fat, but these fats aren’t
supposed to be produced in or around certain organs, such as the heart and liver. That category
is called “ectopic fat”.

Of these, visceral fat and ectopic fat cause health problems.

Obesity, high blood pressure, hyperglycemia, and dyslipidemia increase the risk of
vascular emergencies

“Metabolic syndrome”, known as a condition that is likely to cause occasional vascular
emergencies such as heart disease and stroke, is known as “visceral fat syndrome” in
Visceral fat-type obesity is associated with high blood pressure, hyperglycemia and
Each one of these is known to promote arteriosclerosis, but when combined, they further
promote arteriosclerosis and increase the risk of causing heart disease and stroke.

Having at least one of visceral fat type obesity, high blood pressure, hyperglycemia,
dyslipidemia, and smoking increases the risk of heart disease and stroke by a factor of three
-some says if you have the factor of these, the number of the risk will be higher by multiplying
by 3 times for each factor.

How to remove visceral fat

With visceral fat-type obesity, high blood pressure, hyperglycemia, and dyslipidemia are more
likely to occur, so you have to lose excess visceral fat.

However, visceral fat is a fat that’s easy to remove.
When I go on a diet, it’s easy to reduce before subcutaneous fat becomes visceral fat.

Speaking of the method, it’s emphasized in “The strongest method of dropping visceral fat
which is taught by a doctor with 10% body fat rate even after the age of 50” and in there, he said
“Diet where visceral fat drops off ” is a meal.
In particular, carbohydrates should be reduced (however, there is a difference between the two
teachers in the opinion of ​​how much carbohydrates should be reduced).

In any case, it’s hard work to reduce visceral fat by exercise alone, so it’s essential to review
one’s diet.
And lifestyle-related diseases such as high blood pressure, hyperglycemia, and dyslipidemia
cannot be disregarded, considering the dread diseases they cause. If you have been alerted by
a medical checkup, don’t leave it as it is, but get testing and treatment.
