Cityrag.com has some photos of Harry Connick, Jr. on a beach. He’s exhibiting typical male pattern fat distribution. Many men (and some women) deposit fat intrabdominally when they gain weight. Instead of putting it on the love handles, butt, or thighs these people deposit it inside their abdomen, around their intestines and other organs. Other terms for this are visceral fat or omental fat. It causes men to have potbellies and women to look pregnant when they are not. The only remedy for intra-abdominal fat is diet and exercise. Liposuction and tummy tucks do not remove this fat, unfortunately. It’s also known as the fat that puts a person at higher health risk.
I’m a big fan of Harry Connick, Jr. I’ve been to three of his concerts, have a dozen of his CD’s, and have been listening to him since he came out with the When Harry Met Sally CD. He’s truly a class act, as evidenced by his actions after Hurricane Katrina, and seems like a genuinely nice guy.
Thanks for reading.
