  • Beer bellies aren’t exclusive to beer drinkers. It has more to do with the way men’s bodies store up fat.
  • While women tend to store fat in their thighs, arms, and backside, men tend to do so in their bellies.
  • Visceral fat pushes a man’s abdominal wall outward, creating a beer gut.
  • This type of fat can wrap around your kidneys, liver, and intestines, where it releases hormones that can disrupt their normal function.
  • This can lead to issues like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer. Source.
