Have you ever asked a real estate agent what’s the most critical factor when it comes to selling a house? Their answer was probably something you’ve heard before: “Location, location, location.” Well, oddly enough, when it comes to our health and being even a little overweight, that same, worn out real estate proverb is true, as well. Study after study has shown that where our bodies store fat is nearly as important as how much extra weight we’re holding onto. People whose bodies store more fat in their mid-sections face higher risks of heart disease, certain types of cancer, diabetes and even premature death than those who store extra weight in other ways.
