How to Get Rid of Belly Fat

Belly fat plagues millions of men and women. This is because fat naturally gather in the lower stomach region. Despite living a healthy life by dieting and exercising, you can still fall victim to a potbelly. The truth is that fat in the abdomen has many causes. Leading causes are gender, age, genetics, hormones, and even certain medical conditions. Fortunately, there is a way to reduce belly fat without surgeries like liposuction. CoolSculpting stomach treatments offer a simple solution for a big problem countless people face each day. Read on to learn more about belly fat and how you can destroy your stomach pouch with ease with CoolSculpting.

Causes of Belly Fat

For men, the stomach tends to be the body’s default area for storing extra fat. For women, estrogen directs the body to deposit more fat in the thighs, buttocks, and hips. As women age, the estrogen drops, causing fat to gather more frequently in the belly. Gender and hormones both also affect belly fat, as does age.

The metabolism of both men and women directly affects belly fat. The metabolism begins to decline as the body gets older, causing it to use up fewer calories in a day. Slower metabolism means fat cells are stored more easily and become challenging to lose.

Belly Fat Solutions

Eating clean and exercising consistently are both excellent ways to control and maintain a healthy weight. They are both, however, not always enough to hold extra belly fat at bay. As a result, many people struggling with excess belly fat tend to seek professional help for fat reduction.

Liposuction is one of the most popular and common fat reduction options available in the cosmetic industry. It is an effective treatment, but it does come with several drawbacks because it is an invasive surgery. For people who want fat reduced but want to avoid surgery, Coolsculpting is there to provide them a simple solution.
