The stomach fat is made of visceral and hypodermic fat. Visceral fat is a dangerous deep fat that covers the vital organs. It increases your risk of diabetes and it affects the insulin resistance.
This fat releases the leptin hormone which has a responsibility to regulate the appetite, memory, and learning. Many studies proved that fat people have increased the risk of dementia.
It is very difficult to get rid of the stomach fat, but with a great effort and some diet changes, you will be able to remove the fat in 2-3 weeks.
