This is what the shape of your belly can say about your health

Beneath your belly button

Is your belly a little more round beneath your belly button? This can indicate an excess of belly fat or weak muscles. All you can do about this is to eat healthily and exercise regularly. Fitness, boxing, swimming and other cardio sports are ideal workouts to get rid of belly fat.

Hard and soft

This can happen when you’ve lost a lot of weight in a short period of time. The best thing to do is to just keep doing what you’re doing. That little bit of fat won’t do you any harm; in fact, it even serves as protection for your internal organs.
