Know Your Body Type to Start Losing Belly Fat
2 of 5
The slim type can be a surprisingly dangerous body type.
If you’re a slim person and at a normal weight for your height, you may not think you have excessive abdominal fat. The truth is that even slim people can have too high a percentage of visceral fat, putting them at risk for complications associated with this excess weight around the middle.
If you’re already at or close to an ideal weight, be sure to assess your body proportions. Take out a tape measure and determine your waist-to-hip ratio to see whether you’re at risk. If you’re at risk even though you’re already thin, reducing body fat in your abdominal area can help to improve your waist-to-hip ratio.
