Belly fat can be irritating, and it is the development of excessive fat around the stomach when we consume more calories than required by the body. The excess fats that cover the internal organs are known as visceral fats. Most of us would love to eliminate belly fat because it makes us look ugly, but many of us failed to lose our belly fat. Here are the reasons you are not losing your belly fat:
#1 - Genes
Different people have different body figure, some are born with an apple shaped figure, others have pear shaped figure. If you have an apple shaped figure, then you have more fats on your tummy than any other parts of your body.
#2 - Stress
People who are in stress would always tend to grab something that is high in calories and fats, for instance, chocolates or beer.

Women usually has their estrogen level decreases when they are getting old, and when they reach menopausal stage and gain weight, the fat they accumulate goes straight to their belly. Apart from that, men's testosterone levels also decrease as they age, but at a slower pace.

#5 - Wrong Diet
Too much processed food is bad for your health and belly because it can cause inflammation in the body which is associated with developing belly fat. Moreover, taking saturated, polyunsaturated, and monosaturated fats may increase the visceral fat.
