Abdominal adiposity or “belly fat” is a challenge for many of us. What you may not know is that there are two types. One is subcutaneous fat, that which accumulates just under the deepest layer of skin. This type presents primarily a cosmetic issue, with little effect on our overall health. The other, however, is visceral fat, accumulates deep within the abdomen, surrounding our vital organs, affecting overall health and accumulating in a sheetlike connective tissue structure known as the omentum.
Visceral fat is best treated through lifestyle and dietary changes, the object which is to optimize insulin function and limit fat storage in the omentum. Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching, a modality offered at MONACO Wellness in Suite 2125 at 100 North Tampa St., is the best way to accomplish this.
