Visceral fat: a source of problems in men

When women get fat, they immediately hit the alarm. Fat on the thighs or the tummy makes them look different diets, sports clubs and more to look out for herself in the mirror. But to worry about fat would be worth more as times men. The so-called "beer belly" can replace the endocrine gland — the prostate. And then all of men's problems will become a priority. But they can be prevented if you know what...


Protruded we would have some bones, if not for subcutaneous fat. It accumulates in the subcutaneous fat layer is obvious, in order not to freeze us in the cold season. And does not pose much of a threat to the body.

If subcutaneous fat we see the visceral, invisible. Itaccumulates around internal organs and also helps to survive, as it warms the internal organs, creates around them a soft cushion and supports them in position and also softens the shaking of the internal organs during movement.

In other words, he protects. Normally it is at all and needs to be 10% of all fat accumulations in the body, 90% belongs to the subcutaneous fat. If it is less, even a small intra-abdominal pressure, for example, sneezing or coughing can cause a prolapse of the kidneys, liver, spleen, intestines, gall bladder. But more of it squeezes the internal organs from all sides by fat.



A large amount of visceral fat deposited in the omentum, which is located in the abdominal cavity. Apparently a man with skinny legs and an enlarged abdomen. Very often this occurs in people who often find themselves in a stressful situation.

Accumulation of fat occurs in the stuffing box, the bag under the influence of corticosteroids, adrenocortical hormones, which are secreted during times of stress. And that is in excess of this fat becomes a source of many problems. Increases blood pressure and raises the risk of colon cancer, can develop diabetes the second type. Heart, liver and spleen just "choke" from these arms, and the blood "feeds" the fat leaked into the bloodstream. That's why increases the content of cholesterol and blood pressure begin heart attacks and shortness of breath.

The main danger of internal fat is that, squeezing his mass of internal organs, disrupts their livelihoods: compresses the ducts of the gallbladder, pancreas, that affects the secretion of bile, gastric juices, impairing digestion. Visceral fat is actually an endocrine gland that produces the hormone, causing a constant feeling of hunger.


In men visceral fat is an active endocrine gland. It secretes the hormone leptin, which affects the operation of energy, metabolic and neuroendocrine reactions. Leptin inhibits testosterone, preventing the burning of internal fat. His danger in the fact that it alters the entire hormonal balance in the body, leading to urological and other problems, as well as reduced muscle mass and changes in the skeletal system.

Visceral fat converts male hormones (testosterone) to female hormones (estrogens). This is why men have a greatly reduced potency, and you receive a chest. An excess of estrogen in the woman's body contributes to the development of breast cancer and in the body men for prostate cancer. But as a blocker of testosterone, leptin acts in the case when he upgraded. It is therefore important to reduce the level.

Visceral fat is dangerous because it forms carcinogenic substances that contribute to the development of cancer, and atherogenic substances that contribute to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in the blood vessels.

To find out if visceral fat, measuring the waist circumference. Men should not exceed 94 cm and women 80 cm



In our body there are fat cells that can stretch. And their number does not change. The more fat in these cells, the greater the size and mass they have.

So the first thing to do is to release fat from the cells. And for this, the body must receive an energy deficit (help exercise). Then the blood will begin to enter specific enzymes and hormones which, transporteras through the bloodstream to the fat cells, release the fat. He hauls himself out of fat cells, the fat is transported to the muscles and is burnt in the mitochondria, which perform the role of plants in human body.

The oxygen is supplied in any aerobic exercise: running, swimming, Cycling and others. Training should last no less than 30 minutes. But the loads need to be alternated because the body is able to adapt to them.


It is equally important to cleanse the bowel to adjust good metabolism. The mistake is to completely abandon the consumption of fat: this will slow down the digestion and lead to the fact that their place will be carbohydrates, and the problems will remain.

The main thing — instead of beer to drink more plain water: 2-3 liters a day. It will accelerate your metabolism, and belly fat will "melt" faster. Will help products-weight loss: dairy with low fat, fruits and vegetables. Need and protein foods: fish, eggs, olive oil, nuts. But sausage, biscuits, cookies, chocolates, preferably from his diet completely remove and limit the amount of sugar, replacing it with natural honey.

It is impossible to prevent the emergence of painful feelings of hunger, as this will lead to the accumulation of more visceral fat. You should take vitamin C, drink coffee as caffeine and ascorbic acid decrease the activity of the adrenal cortex, resulting in inhibited synthesis of corticosteroids.


They have a slight laxative effect, removing waste products and toxins, and do not allow to absorb the extra fats, improve metabolism, promote weight loss. Amino acids omega-3 help to accelerate the decomposition and elimination of already accumulated fat.

However, the dose should not be exceeded because excess seeds can impede the absorption of other essential nutrients in the body. In the diet of flax seed should be included gradually, starting with 0.5 tbsp a day and not to consume more than 3 tbsp take them to 30 minutes before a meal. You should start with 3 grams and bring to 30 g at a time. The recommended dose per day — 90 g (split into 3 doses).

Jelly for weight loss: 2 tbsp flax seeds, 1 liter of water, 2 cups of fruit juice. Seeds pour in the boiling water and boil for 1 hour. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add fruit juice and stir.

However, flax seeds have the property to reduce sugar levels and thin the blood, so in some types of diabetes and poor blood clotting, their use is undesirable. They are also contraindicated in case of intestinal obstruction, fibroids and endometriosis, Crohn's disease, men with risk of prostate cancer, polycystic ovaries.
