Having more visceral fat on your body is associated with a higher mortality rate. What are the risk factors that come with a higher rate of visceral fat? How does weightlifting and cardio fit into a plan to reduce it? How can you become more self-regulating? On this episode, doctors and I talk about the dangers of visceral fat and tips, hacks and strategies to reduce it.

Three Takeaways

You can eat and get ripped on a diet that’s not necessarily healthy for your arteries.

High protein diets in certain individuals will escalate inflammatory markers, but Mediterranean diets work very well.

A device like the Skulpt Body Fat Scanner can help you keep track of your body and make you more self-aware and self-regulating.

When you build muscle the bone will follow.

At the start of the show, Dr. Rob talked about his upcoming presentations, and then the doctors shared their strategies for reducing visceral fat including diet, exercise and supplements. The doctors also talked about the importance of being realistic about what their patients can do with their health. We also talked about the importance of getting real exercise, not walking the dog or doing steady state cardio. “If you want to burn fat, you have to incorporate high intensity interval training (HIIT), low intensity, long duration exercise doesn’t work for fat burning.” We also answered questions on structural integration, the use of peptides and joint issues

We also talked about:

  • Mediterranean diet vs. animal protein-based diets
  • Mistakes people make with exercise
  • Biomedical systems you can include in your life to get feedback about your body

Visceral fat is hazardous to health because it plays a role in the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer if it goes unchecked. It’s so important to come up with a targeted plan to get rid of hormonally active visceral fat because it will make a big difference to your health. Get your visceral fat measured by a doctor or invest in a biomedical tool that allows you to measure it yourself. Reduce your intake of alcohol, bread, sugar and soda and adopt a Mediterranean diet. Exercise is necessary too, even 20 minutes of HIIT training on an Assault Bike will make a huge difference.
