In addition to the figure, a lean stomach is much healthier. People with an apple-shaped body, ie belly fat, are more likely to suffer from obesity-related diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. People with a pear-shaped body, ie accumulated fat in the hips and thighs, are less susceptible to these diseases.
The above facts seem unbelievable. Fat is still fat wherever it is, right? This is not true because belly fat is worse than fat elsewhere. This is because of the amount of fat in our stomach, the level of C-reactive protein in our body. C-reactive protein is an inflammatory marker and high blood pressure is associated with heart disease.
