Know Your Body Type to Start Losing Belly Fat

Apple body types are at greater risk than pear body types.
An apple-shaped person is someone who holds a large amount of fat in the abdomen, has a large waist, and has generally slimmer legs and arms. If you’re an apple-shaped person, you tend to have a large amount of visceral fat, increasing your risk for heart disease.
A pear-shaped body type tends to have a smaller waist with larger hips and legs. Although an overweight pear-shaped person may still have higher than ideal levels of visceral fat, her risk for heart disease tends to be lower because she stores more fat in her extremities. As a result, she has less toxic fat surrounding her organs and producing dangerous hormones and byproducts.
Although it’s important for every body type to maintain a healthy weight and lose abdominal fat, it’s even more critical for you to lose weight to prevent future disease risks if you’re an apple-shaped type. The Belly Fat Diet plan is perfect for you and your type, because the weight loss in this plan is specifically geared toward losing your excessive belly fat.
