There are two important things to know if you want to burn stomach fat.
Firstly belly fat is not all created equal.
Secondly, unfair as is, as a woman ages she will accumulate more belly fat compared to a man.
The two types of belly fat are subcutaneous and visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat lies around the belly and is the fat you can easily pinch around the waist. On the other hand visceral fat is located on the inside of your abdominal muscles and surrounds your organs. If you want to burn stomach fat and get a toned and tight six pack you will have to lose both types of fat, especially the subcutaneous fat since it hides the abdominal muscles you are looking to tone and make more visible.
Fortunately, when you succeed with a fat loss diet, you will lose both types. However it is important to know that visceral fat is a very dangerous type of since it is linked to diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Unlike subcutaneous fat, visceral fat does more than sit around the organs. It will actively promote inflammation which many scientists believe cause many diseases known to man.
The reason women gain more belly fat than men as they age is because after a woman goes through menopause, it has been shown that her body fat begins to be deposited less in her arms, hips and thighs and more around her stomach.
Also with increasing age and the slowing of the metabolism, the fat in the body will very slowly increase. This change in the fat distribution is caused by the hormonal changes women go through during menopause. When this occurs, women experience a greater overall percentage increase in fat deposit than do men.
The good new is that it is possible to prevent this extra body fat storage in the stomach - it is not as complicated as most people would believe. The approach would be to attack the stomach fat as you would any other type of fat - eating a reduced carbohydrate diet, doing interval and metabolic resistance training. This three tier approach to burn stomach fat is actually as effective for men as it is for women
The important thing to remember is that with increasing age our level of activity and metabolism both decrease and will lead to increased storage of fat deposit around the stomach. Planning to stay active will stimulate your metabolism to burn more calories and fat and is definitely the best approach women can use to lose fat around the stomach (it also works for men).
