Belly fat is stored for a few reasons.
- We have become a fat storing machine instead of a fat burning machines.
- We have less muscle than when we were young and active, so our metabolic rates have shut down.
- We produce more cortisol when we are overwhelmed, which is the hormone that is related to belly fat storage.
