Carrying excess body fat is a major health risk, raising your chances of developing life-threatening conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and even cancer.

“Excess fat is particularly harmful around the waist. These excess fat cells, particularly visceral fat which is found in the liver and around our internal organs, actively secrete about 20 numerous hormones and other substances which can negatively impact your health,” says Dr Shanker Pasupathy, Senior Consultant and Director of the LIFE Centreat Singapore General Hospital (SGH).
