Visceral fat is a type of body fat which is stored within the abdominal cavity and located near vital organs, thus making it a dangerous type of fat to have. Visceral fat has been linked to metabolic disturbances and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. According to health experts, minimising these four food group could significantly help you lose your visceral fat.

Wheat

Wheat tends to go through a process known as hybridisation which is when all of its nutrients are stripped and is pumped with gluten.

This process can negatively affect the digestive system and causes serious problems such as inflammation.

Professor Nicola McKeown at the Friedman School and a scientific advisor to the Whole Grains Council conducted a study which found that higher intakes of refined grains such as wheat led to more visceral adipose tissue fat.

White flour

White flour is highly inflammatory and contains no nutrients because it has been refined and stripped of the outermost and innermost layers of grain, removing most of the fibre, nutrients, and even proteins.

That means that it will be digested rapidly, creating a cascading effect of increased insulin levels, increased fat storage, and an increased waistline.

In addition, the low fibre content of white flour won’t leave one feeling very satisfied, which can often lead to eating more calories than you really need thereby increasing belly fat.

Dr Sheila Dugan, a physician and rehabilitation specialist said: “One good place to begin improving your food choices is to eliminate sugary drinks – and not just soda, but juices.

“Sugar increases belly fat and fibre reduces belly fat; thus, when you’re juicing fruits, you’re removing the fibre, leaving pure sugar.

“So, one quick fix, a very concrete fix, would be eliminating sugary drinks.

“Replacing sugary beverages with water will help dramatically cut down your sugar intake, and then once you’ve taken that step, you can figure out how to cut down on foods that are high in sugar.

“If you have a sweet tooth and need to put that final accent to your meal, eat an apple, melon or fresh berries. Just remember, fruit is not a substitute for vegetables.”
