If you notice your belly is becoming bigger, and you aren’t sure whether it’s just water retention, or stored fat, you should definitely take a look at it, and see which type of belly you have.
There are four different types of belly fat, and you can easily determine which type is yours by reading their characteristics, and comparing them to your own belly.
So, let’s take a look at each type.
4 TYPES OF BELLY FAT
Bloated belly fat
If your belly is bloated, it is usually an indication that you are eating foods that your stomach has difficulties processing them, foods that don’t have many vitamins and minerals, or you have food allergies.
If you think this is your type of belly, you should consume more natural drinks that will improve the digestion and reduce the swelling.
A well-balanced diet is the best way to de-bloat your belly.
Punctured-tire belly fat
If you have the so-called ‘love-handles’, and your belly looks like a punctured tire, you are probably living a sedentary lifestyle, and you eat too much sugar.
You should lower the amount of sugary foods you eat, as well as ditch the soda drinks and alcohol.
If you do this, and you start to walk more often, you will definitely lose few inches off your waist.
Low belly fat
If you spend your day mostly in a sitting position, and eat the same foods every day, you will most likely have soft belly formed in the lower part of the abdomen.
You can be slim, but still have this type of belly if you aren’t physically active.
Therefore, you should include any type of physical activity in your everyday life, and have a balanced diet.
Stress belly fat
If you have a round belly in the lower part of the abdomen, you are most likely a perfectionist, or you have problems with digestion and swelling.
In order to get rid of this type of belly fat, you should ditch the junk food, lower your coffee consumption, and stop skipping meals.
