CDC noted that being overweight is a major risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. But the inch you can pinch (subcutaneous) isn’t the most troubling kind of fat. Hidden layers of fat around organs (visceral) are thought to drive up the risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Normal-weight people who are TOFI—thin outside, fat inside—may look healthy but still have excess visceral fat that increases their risk.
Visceral fat is fat that wraps around your abdominal organs deep inside your body. You can’t always feel it or see it. In fact, you may have a pretty flat tummy and still have visceral fat.
EMSculpt NEO can help with reducing visceral fat, in addition to diet and exercise.
