Fat around your abdomen is worse for your health then the fat you carry around on other parts of your body, like your hips or thighs. More damaging than visible fat, however, is the fat you can’t see. Visceral fat is the body fat that is stored in your abdomen and surrounds internal organs such as your liver, pancreas and intestines and even your heart. It puts you at risk of diabetes as well as other diseases and even death. There is no better time to start losing that extra fat than right now.

Chew on this

Eating good food is one of the easiest, least expensive, and – my favorite reason – the most delicious way to get healthy. The hardest part about well is getting into the habit, and even that isn’t very tough. Here’s a way to start: just grab a bag of unsalted almonds and some raisins. Snack on that. When you feel like it, whirl them in the blender along with some cocoa powder and voila! You’ll have cacao almond balls. Once you get hooked on eating delicious food, you’ll start making it. Eat well and live well.
