All fat is not the same
Typically when people gain weight from regular fat, they gain a kind of fat that is soft and doughy and sits just under the skin.
Hard Belly is a different kind of fat and it can have many different names, such as excess hard abdominal fat, hard belly fat, lipodystrophy, visceral adipose tissue, visceral adiposity, etc. But no matter what it’s called, Hard Belly is not regular fat.
Hard belly fat is a type of fat that lies deeper, mostly within the abdominal (stomach) area. This type of fat may also be associated with fat buildup in and around other organs.
