10 Exercises to Help Burn Your Stubborn Belly Fat in Less Than a Month

According to health experts, a waistline above 40 inches (or 102 cm) in men and 35 inches (or 88 cm) in women can be a sign of abdominal obesity. Visceral fat can affect your insulin production and even increase the level of stress hormones in your body with time, which is why it’s crucial to keep your abdominal area in shape.
