Abdominal fat is largely broken into 2 categories: visceral and subcutaneous. Visceral abdominal fat surrounds the abdominal organs whereas subcutaneous abdominal fat lies between the skin and the abdominal wall. While neither type is good for your overall health, visceral fat has been strongly linked to serious risk factors like insulin resistance which sets the stage for type 2 diabetes. In addition, excess abdominal fat is also linked to poor metabolic health. Other major risk factors associated with excess abdominal fat include heart disease, high blood pressure, abnormal blood fats, inflammation and premature death.

What can you do to lose the excess abdominal fat?
Studies are showing that the best way to exercise to decrease you excess abdominal fat is through aerobic exercise. Even though weight training can help you get lean and tone, aerobic exercise will shed that excess fat faster.

Using a statistical technique called meta-analysis, scientists were able to determine, with a sample size of more than 2,000 individuals, that aerobic exercise decreased abdominal fat while weight training had no effect.

So if you are looking for a way to boost your abdominal fat loss, focus on aerobic exercise. Types of aerobic exercise include running, swimming, biking, rollerblading, soccer, spinning classes, Zumba and basically any type of exercise that keeps your heart rate elevated and breaking a sweat.
