Warning on harmful hidden fat

Warning on harmful hidden fat

A new survey has indicated that ninety per cent of Irish people are unaware of a significant health risk, visceral fat.

Visceral fat surrounds abdominal organs and can increase the risk of life-threatening diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

The European survey, which included Ireland, included over 12,000 adults who wanted to lose weight.
It showed that 90% of Irish people do not know what visceral fat is but after hearing about the associated risks, 79% said they were more motivated to lose weight.

Waist measurement is regarded as the best clinical indicator of excess visceral fat and therefore the best predictor of risk.
Experts say visceral fat is a stronger predictor of premature death than overall weight.
Steady weight loss with a 5% to 10% decrease in body weight can reduce visceral fat and significantly benefit health.
The study found that of the Irish people surveyed who had previously dieted at New Year, almost half admitted to being unsuccessful.
