How to lose visceral fat vs subcutaneous fat


We all know that excess fat is not good for your health. But do you know there's more than one type of fat, and that not all stomach fat is bad? For individuals trying to lose weight, it may feel as though all fat is the same.  But there are two unique kinds of fat: subcutaneous and visceral. Their effect on your health is quite different. 

Much of the fat from the stomach area lies right under the skin. This type of fat is known as subcutaneous fat and isn't necessarily hazardous to your health. 

The harmful fat is the hidden fat around your organs. This type is known as visceral abdominal fat. You might have visceral fat but not be obese.
