Know Your Body Type to Start Losing Belly Fat
5 of 5
The male body type is more likely to have excess belly fat.
Have you been noticing that your six-pack is slowly transitioning into a keg? Men are more likely than women to have excessive levels of belly fat. And, as a result, men have a higher likelihood of diseases and disorders linked with visceral fat. Lifestyle choices, such as inactivity, poor diet, and excessive alcohol intake, can cause your body to store excessive visceral fat.
Men, similar to women, start to lose muscle mass as they age, especially if they’re inactive. In your 40s and beyond, changes in testosterone and estrogen levels may make your body more inclined to lose lean muscle mass and store fat around your waistline.
