Just to be clear, having a little belly fat is actually good for you because it protects your intestines, stomach and other delicate organs.
It becomes an issue when you have excessive belly fat. Extra fat cells that lay deep in your abdomen, otherwise known as a visceral fat, can cause health problems such as heart disease and diabetes.
For some people when they decide to lose some belly fat they actually lose it. On the other hand, others find it a struggle to lose stubborn belly fat.
