Exercise Reduces Dangerous Intra-Abdominal Fat

Research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that overweight post-menopausal women who do light exercise for 45 minutes three to four times per week can lose three pounds per year.

This might not seem like a lot, but when you consider that most people, middle aged and beyond, usually gain one to three pounds every year, you are looking at a solid net benefit of four to six pounds.

Even more important, the study reports that women who engage in moderate exercise can shed a large amount of intra-abdominal fat, up to 16 percent. This type of fat, which surrounds the organs inside the body, is a hidden risk factor for many life-threatening conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and several cancers.

While the current study dealt solely with post-menopausal women, it is likely that exercise will produce the same benefit among men and younger women. In fact, Dr. McTiernan has future plans to test how exercising compares to dieting for reducing intra-abdominal fat. She hypothesizes that, when it comes to shedding this hidden yet dangerous fat, exercising may be even more important than counting calories.
