Belly fat (visceral fat) that surrounds your internal organs may raise the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer. New research suggests that exercise may be more effective than weight-loss meds when it comes to melting away dangerous belly fat. When compared to the meds, aerobic exercise yielded the greatest reduction in visceral fat as measured by CT or MRI scans. Strength training was also beneficial. Experts think that exercise stimulates the release of a signaling protein, interleukin-6, that helps regulate energy metabolism and is involved in burning fat.
