Happy Thursday! Let’s dive into another common question! Are there common areas of weight gain in men’s and women’s bodies as they age? There is not one common area of weight gain scientifically. However, most people report an increase in the midsection. This can be explained by talking about the 2 different kinds of fat. 1. Visceral fat (protects organs) and subcutaneous fat (under the skin). Visceral fat increases with age because the bodies ability to burn those fat tissues (lipolysis) decreases with age and in turn the body changes where it stores fat (ex: midsection). Here are some examples as to what leads to this for men and women. - Men= more visceral fat with alcohol intake - Women= more visceral fat with post menopause A reliable indicator of visceral fat is to take your waist circumference- you can do this by measuring yourself at the narrowest part of the waits. Measurements greater than 35 inches for women and greater than 40 for men are considered at risk
