Muffin tops used to be something good, as in yummy. Today the phrase refers to that ugly spillover of fat at your waist.
Belly fat is more than unsightly. The overflow you see is just regular old fat. Scientists call it “subcutaneous,” which just means “under the skin.” But underneath that visible fat often lurks a hidden layer of fat, called visceral fat, made up of active cells that can trigger an inflammatory process in the body.
