How To Lose Belly Fat

Episode 497 48m


Belly fat, or visceral fat around the organs, is the number-one cause of aging. It drives inflammation, increases the risk of blood clots, changes your hormones and brain chemistry, and more. It’s a recipe for disaster in the body. Not only does belly fat surround the organs, but it’s an organ of its own that produces dangerous inflammatory cytokines that may lead to a cytokine storm. In short, we want to do everything we can to avoid belly fat.

In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host Dhru Purohit about belly fat, or visceral adipose tissue. We discuss how this form of fat is the most dangerous and why it’s so important to take steps to reduce it.
