Visceral fat refers to the fat accumulated inside the organs of the abdominal cavity or in the empty space between the organs and organs. When there is a lot of visceral fat, substances that interfere with the insulin action of our body and cause inflammation increase, which can cause various diseases.
Abdominal obesity caused by visceral fat is known to increase the risk of colon cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer as well as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and heart disease. Some studies have shown that middle-aged people with severe abdominal obesity have a 3.6 times higher risk of developing memory loss and Alzheimer’s dementia in old age.
To improve abdominal obesity, diet and exercise should be combined, and food should be covered well before eating. In this regard, let’s look at foods that are good for removing visceral fat introduced by’Shape.com’.
1. cruciferous vegetables
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage are rich in vitamins A, C, K, folic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium, and fiber, helping to remove visceral fat from the abdomen.
2. Plain yogurt
Plain yogurt or Greek yogurt that does not contain any other things such as sugar and fruit are not only good for your health, but also good for relieving abdominal obesity.
Probiotics such as lactobacillus in yogurt (living bacteria that are beneficial to health) keep the digestive system healthy. In this way, the stomach is filled with gas and bloated symptoms are reduced, and constipation is eliminated, so the stomach is kept flat.
The sourness and strong scent of vinegar is effective in combating fat. This is the result of a study of people who are overweight.
Those who ate 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily for 12 weeks had noticeable decreases in body mass index, visceral fat, and waist circumference compared to those who did not. The acetic acid in vinegar activates a gene that releases large amounts of fat-degrading proteins.
4. Whole grain
Studies have shown that whole grains that have only the skin of the grains without refining are particularly effective in losing belly fat. Whole grains, such as whole wheat bread or brown rice, can help remove fat from the abdomen by lowering insulin levels.
