Fat tissue might induce several medical problems, starting with increased levels of cholesterol, glucose, triglycerides etc. These higher levels, if left untreated, might induce several conditions that are not mild or light at all. First of all, there is diabetes, a condition that requires a lot of discipline and a strict life regime. And there are heart problems, which might lead to a tragic end. Of course, we are talking about people who live with extreme obesity for decades, so fat tissue should be eliminated as soon as possible.
There are certain areas that cannot lose fat so easily, or that is just what it seems to us. We are talking about belly fat. It seems that abdominal area tends to store more fat than most of the other areas in the organism. Also, the problem here is that when overeating, intestines tend to become wider, increasing the overall volume of the abdomen, tricking us into thinking there is more fat than there actually is. To lose stubborn fat easily, nothing else than the usual things must be done and those are dieting and exercising.
To burn fat, it is essential to reduce the total amount of calories taken by food. The difference in value of calories taken and needed will start a fat burning process. If the difference is big, more fat will be burned. But, some caution is needed here because total reduction of calories will start certain processes in the organism, which have toxins as a final product, toxins that might be very harmful, especially for the brain (brain and blood cells use only glucose). Therefore, a healthy diet, with only slight reduction of calories taken should be the safest possible option. Weight reduction will happen slowly in this case, but it will be much healthier. Some experts recommend a short diet that would eliminate a lot of extra pounds, followed by a healthy diet.
Even though working out specific muscle areas will put focus on the wanted muscles and they will become a lot stronger, fat will not be eliminated easily like that from those regions (belly, for example). Cardio workout is much more suitable because it burns fat more easily throughout the entire organism, including abdomen. Exercises like sit ups and crouches should be done, but in combination with running and swimming. This is the best option when it comes to losing stubborn belly fat.
