The study showed that women with a waist circumference of 35 inches were twice as likely to die from heart disease and cancer than women with a waist circumference of 28 inches – even if they were at ideal body weight.
But you might be asking “How can they be at ideal body weight and still have abdominal obesity?”
There is a natural tendency to lose muscle mass as we age. When we add in the inactivity associated with the American lifestyle that loss of muscle mass is accelerated and the muscle is replaced with fat.
Thus, it is actually possible in today’s world to have both normal weight and abdominal obesity – and that is not a good thing!
Of course, the women who were both overweight and had abdominal obesity were even more likely to die from heart disease or cancer.
So it is not just about not looking good in your bathing suit – abdominal obesity is a killer!
However, the good news is that you can do something about abdominal obesity.
A combination of exercise, a healthy diet and the “Cinch Inch Loss Plan” is a proven way of getting rid of that unsightly belly fat forever.
To Your Health!
