Does belly fat have effects other than self image? Things like health, hunger control, diabetes?

I have fibromyalgia, so I can't do a bunch of aerobic exercise. I have about 30 pounds on my waistline, and many diet issues, including symptoms of diabetes without actually having diabetes. I've heard that belly fat effects metabolism and actually makes one feel more hungry. What do you know about this?

    definetly…the body fat percentage is a direct indicator of the body's current ability to metabolize sugars efficiently. persons that store the majority of the weight on the waistline need to be aware of the healthy effects regarding central obesity, which is what the BMI was designed for, to measure the risk factor for that.
