What Causes Visceral Fat?

  • Fat gets stored when you consume too many calories and have too little physical activity.
  • Some people tend to store fat around their belly rather than on the hips because of their genes.
  • In women, getting older can change where the body stores fat. Especially after menopause, women’s muscle mass gets less and their fat increases.

  • In men, age and genetics also play a role in developing visceral fat. Drinking alcohol can also lead to more belly fat in men.
