Visceral fat in the midsection accounts for many belly fat issues, and it’s extremely dangerous. Visceral fat is a deeper belly fat, stored further under the skin and actually wraps itself around vital organs including the kidneys and liver. (2)

In addition, having excess belly fat, in general, raises the risk of dying early and having to deal with other life-threatening conditions. Cancer of the colon kidney and digestive tract is at an increased risk in women with excess fat around their midsection. Being overweight in general raises the risk of breast and ovarian cancer as well.
Although a lot of people think a thousand sit-ups or crunches a day will get rid of the flab, that’s not entirely true, Sedlock says. “Sit-ups aren’t going to get rid of your abdominal fat, per se,” she says. “Sit-ups strengthen the abdominal musculature.” So that means with enough sit-ups your tummy should have a better appearance, she says.
A trim midsection is good for many things, like fitting into your favorite jeans or walking the beach in a swimsuit with confidence. But there are even better reasons to work off extra baggage around your stomach. That baggage, known as visceral fat, isn’t just the most annoying kind — it’s also the most dangerous. As it forms between your organs, deep within your abdominal cavity, it secretes proteins that can trigger chronic inflammation, putting you at risk for heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer.
I did use a competitor’s Beta-Tor (HMB-FA) with great effectiveness. I’d have to say it was the single most effective supplement I have ever taken, but also the most expensive. I am really stoked Forge is finally available.
Would you give anything to have a flat, taut tummy? Do you envy the people who are able to walk around with their midsection showing because all you see are the lines of their well-defined muscles? Would you like to know how to transform your belly into one that looks like theirs?
The body doesn’t react to fats in the same way. Research correlates high intake of saturated fat (the kind in meat and dairy) to increased visceral fat, Patton said. On the other hand, monounsaturated fats (the kind in olive oil and avocados) and specific types of polyunsaturated fats (mainly omega-3s, found in walnuts, sunflower seeds, and fatty fish like salmon) have anti-inflammatory effects in the body, and if eaten in proper portions may do your body good. But Patton warned that eating too much fat of any kind increases your calorie intake and could lead to weight gain, so enjoy healthy fats in moderation.
Typically you don’t need a full day of rest. You can do your weightlifting in the morning and then do cardio at night. If you are following a standard 5 day split that should cover the 4-5 hours of weightlifting and then HIIT a few times a weeks.
Confused…. You wrote: “I take 3 caps of Forge… I do this twice per day”. You also wrote: “I take 1.5 servings of Forge twice a day” But the serving size for Forge is 4 caps. 1.5 servings would be 6 caps. So do you take 3 caps twice per day or do you take 6 caps twice per day?
Monounsaturated fats are better for you. Not only do they help with weight loss but they also give you more energy and make you feel better as well. If you are suffering from aching joints, you will find that a diet high in monounsaturated fats will ease pain and even increase joint mobility.
The end result for you will be a refreshing hormonal balance that will go a long way in boosting your libido and giving you a vibrant skin tone while eliminating the threat of Type 2 Diabetes and High Blood Pressure.
