What can you do about that annoying layer of fat around the middle?

Why is your waist bigger now than it used to be? What are the best exercises to get rid of it? Sit-ups? HIIT? What kind of diet? Are there certain foods I should or shouldn’t eat? Do the fat cells in your middle behave differently than your other fat cells? Is your waist size really a key indicator of your health status and the "right" weight for you? Or is your Body Mass Index (BMI) all you need to know?

None of us likes the look or feel of a roll around our middle, but there’s more to it than our vanity. That roll of fat is part of a cluster of health problems that can put you at greater risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, endometrial and breast cancer. Please join us to learn the answers to your questions, plus ten simple tips to banish that belly for benefits both in appearance AND health.

Instructor: Joyce Hanna, MA, MS, Associate Director of HIP, exercise physiologist and nutritionist.
