Definition of central adiposity

Central adiposity refers to the distribution of body weight in the upper part of the body, more specifically, around the tummy with significant abdominal fat. Studies have shown that intra-abdominal fat, as measured simply by waist circumference, is a predictor of risk for obesity-related diseases. In fact, this belly fat is so important as a predictor of risk that comes from weight that it is one of the 5 criteria in metabolic syndrome.
