Where does the fat go in my belly?

It’s sometimes difficult to imagine where all the fat is stored in our bodies.  There’s only so much you can grab between your fingers on the outside of your abdominal muscles, there’s only so much it can be distributed beer bellyacross other regions of the body.  A lot of fat, however, is inside the abdominal cavity, lining the intestines and other organs.  Because of this accumulation of fat inside the abdomen, the belly protrudes in the classic beer belly fashion. This article shows a diagram that illustrates this point.

Remember, it is impossible to spot-reduce a fat belly.  Do all the sit-ups, crunches, whatever you want – you will get nowhere.  It comes down to getting rid of fat in general.  The only known method for spot-reducing fat is liposuction.
