Causes of belly fat in men

There are a few different things that can cause belly fat in men. One of the most common is diet. If you’re eating too many unhealthy foods, or not enough healthy ones, that can lead to weight gain.

Another possible cause is a lack of exercise. If you’re not getting enough physical activity, that can also contribute to weight gain. Finally, some health conditions can also cause weight gain, which can lead to belly fat.

A final cause of belly fat in men is drinking too much alcohol. Alcohol can add empty calories to your diet, and it can also lead to weight gain. If you’re drinking too much this can also lead to other health problems, so it’s important to be aware of your alcohol intake.

Belly fat can also increase due to hormonal changes in men especially around the ‘male menopause’ or andropause.
