In a world of social media filters, Photoshop, and perfect lighting and angles, we can forget one very important fact — most people have cellulite. It’s totally normal! Some have cellulite on their stomach, or on their thighs, tush, or on the backs of their arms. Of course, cellulite is nothing to be ashamed of and is a totally normal part of the human body.
That being said, we understand that carrying excess fat in your belly can be a cause for concern since this type of fat can be dangerous to your health, putting you at risk for issues such as heart attacks and strokes, type 2 diabetes, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Sleep apnea, hypertension, arthritis, fatty liver disease, depression, and dementia have also been linked to high levels of visceral fat in the stomach.
If you’re concerned about belly fat and looking to reduce the cellulite in your tummy area, doctors and personal trainers shared these tips in helping diminish your stomach cellulite.
