Fat Food Turns Into Belly Fat Within Hours

By Carolin 

As much as three teaspoons of fat could be traced to belly or hips within hours of a fat rich dinner.

Researchers from Oxford university has studied how fast dietary fat can be found on our bodies. They found that with fat that we consume after lunch can be measured as body fat within five hours. Five hours after a late night dinner containing for 30 grams fat three teaspoons of body fat could be measured on belly or hips on normal sized persons. The effect was not the same for overweight people as the body fat then is stored around the organs.

Fat accumulation around your organs (visceral fat) can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes and other serious health problems.  Fat accumulation on the hips on the other hand has been showed to decrease heart disease and diabetes.
