Visceral Fat, Why Me?

March 8, 2020 in Fitness / Food / Home

I am lazy and I own it. I actually enjoy working out; however, the effort needed to get up always escape me. After talking to a friend about her new nifty scale, I decided to purchase the RENPHO Body Fat Smart scale.

Visceral fat is body fat that is stored within the abdominal cavity and is therefore stored around a number of important internal organs such as the liver, pancreas and intestines. Visceral fat is sometimes referred to as ‘active fat’ because research has shown that this type of fat plays a distinctive and potentially dangerous role affecting how our hormones function.

I cried, felt bad for myself, then jumped on my Bowflex.
