Danger of intra-abdominal fat
There are two types of fat in our bodies that can result in
Subcutaneous fat is the one right below our skin. Eric calls
this kind of fat his ‘love handles’.
The other type is intra-abdominal fat. This is the fat that coats
our organs and causes the most concern. Even though we don’t

By taking a few small measures and making some swaps throughout your day, you can help decrease your risk of chronic disease.
