Too much fat around the waist primarily poses a threat to the development of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, reports Express.

Why belly fat is problematic

Visceral fat is a type of fat located deep in the abdomen, often causing a protruding belly.

A small amount of visceral fat is necessary to protect and insulate your organs, but an excess of it is known to significantly increase the risk of developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart diseases, and even cancer.

Therefore, if you've noticed that your belly has become larger than before, it might be time to consider necessary lifestyle changes to reduce weight. One way to achieve this is through healthy, balanced eating and regular physical exercise.

How much water to drink

However, a simple adjustment to what you drink can also help reduce unwanted body fat.

Water is the best choice for proper hydration. According to health experts, increasing daily water intake can aid in burning belly fat and protect vital organs.

Yet, the idea of using water as a substitute for food to quickly feel full is incorrect. Instead, you should increase water consumption as part of a long-term lifestyle change to promote weight loss.

The UK's National Health Service recommends consuming six to eight cups of fluids per day, including tea, coffee, and a bowl of soup.

As previously reported, a nutritionist identified a magic potion for body cleansing.

Prior to that, a dietitian named a Ukrainian product as the food of longevity.
