There’s no arguing the fact that flat stomachs are attractive. Whether you’re wearing a bulky sweater or a bathing suit, a flat stomach improves your appearance. But there’s more to a flat stomach than the apparent physical benefits.
A flat stomach eliminates the danger of deep-hidden belly fat around your organs which can increase your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer.
A flat stomach means lower cholesterol, lower triglycerides, lower blood pressure and optimal insulin levels.
30 minutes of physical activity, even if it’s just walking, can have a positive effect on visceral fat, this hidden belly fat. And losing as little as 5 to 10 pounds or trimming 2 inches off your tummy can make a difference.
