To combat belly fat, it is important to give up alcohol and smoking. In addition, you should engage in regular aerobic exercise, advised the doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov.
According to him, attempts to pump the abs in this case are useless, because the muscles will remain "under the layer of fat."
He stressed that body fat is a factor in the fatal metabolic syndrome that leads to cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Everything is flooded with salom: kidneys, liver, intestines, heart. This visceral fat increases mortality, - said Myasnikov on the air of the program "On the most important" on the TV channel "Russia 1".
Myasnikov added that it is possible to get rid of body fat by eliminating not only sweets from the diet, but also foods containing sugar in general. The TV doctor said that sugar is present not only in the usual lemonades and juices, but even in ketchups and sausages.
