Belly Fat in Men: Why Weight Loss Matters
Men differ from women because they tend to gain weight in one main area—the belly.
This produces unhealthy and ugly love handles that more importantly increase the risk of chronic disease and premature death.
The Dangers Of Belly Fat
The Mayo Clinic advises that weight loss is important in men because it has been shown that truncal obesity as is often seen in men is more difficult to get rid of and causes an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, various cancers, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome and even premature death.
