If you eat less and exercise more do you burn both types of fat equally? Is there anything specific to lowering visceral fat? Do these both show up on body fat tests like the bia scales? Also what causes a change in fat storage patterns? I used to be a pear shape then straight then hourglass and now I'm gaining most in the stomach. I know my hormones are off as I stopped having a period a few years ago regardless of my weight and I want on birth control. Some people say raw foodists wouldn't have periods if healthy?
