If you want to know what visceral fat is, why you should care about it, and how to lose it for good, then you want to listen to this episode.

“How the hell can I be this skinny with a stomach this big and fat?”

That’s the first line from an email I received earlier this week.

And it inspired this episode.

You see, I’ve worked with thousands of men and women and if there’s one thing that frustrates people most, it’s having too much belly fat.

I’ve written quite a bit about how to lose belly fat, but visceral fat deserves its own treatment because it’s a different beast than the run-of-the-mill ab fat.

So, in this episode we’re going to cover what visceral fat is, why it’s dangerous, why some people have more than others, and how to lose it.
