I've been encouraging DH to reduce belly fat for ages as I don't think its healthy to be carrying so much weight around your belly. I've also read that it is bad for health as it means that your organs are likely covered with a layer of fat which is not good for the vital organs. Unfortunately, he loves food and fatty stuff and asking him to cut down on those really kills him! Sigh, I wonder why men have such low focus and willpower. Perhaps because beauty is less important in the male world!
