Visceral fat, also known as belly fat, is found inside the abdominal cavity. Carrying too much visceral fat is extremely harmful as it\u2019s linked to a higher risk of type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, heart disease and even certain cancers. It\u2019s difficult to judge how much visceral fat one may have, however, a protruding belly and a large waist are two signs that a person may have too much of it. Carrying too much visceral fat is a serious health problem and steps to get rid of the dangerous fat should be taken to help reduce health risks. There are two important factors to remember when it comes to burning fat and walking. The first is that a person needs to walk fast enough to raise their heart rate into the best zone for burning fat for energy. The second, is that a person needs to walk long enough that they are burning stored fat rather than just burning off the sugars the body stores for quick bursts of exercise. DON\u2019T MISS The fat-burning zone with walking The fat burning zone to help a person get rid of their visceral fat can be achieved by walking at a brisk pace. In this zone, a person will be breathing heavier, feeling increased exertion and probably sweating, however, still able to carry on a conversation. A person needs at least 45 minutes of walking in the fat-burning zone to get the body to burn stored fat.
