CAN YOU SPOT REDUCE FAT ?





Spot reduction is one of the biggest myths in the weight loss community. You cant just choose an area to lose weight. Fact is that the stomach area is the hardest place to lose fat for most of us.


One of the biggest misconceptions in the fitness world today is the belief that you can reduce fat in specific areas of your body by targeting them with exercise. Well you can't. Proper nutrition will lead the way when it comes to loosing that extra fat. Exercising and weight training will definitely accelerate the process of loosing weight/fat loss,
but you have to take care of your eating habits,How much macros you take,the amount of carbs,proteins and fats you are consuming.

For mens usually fat gets accumlated at lower abs/love handles, the lower chest, or lower back. However for women, it's usually thighs, glutes, hips, and under arms where the fat gets stored.

Unfortunately, this is all simply due to genetics and how the body displaces body fat differently for men and women.





Is it possible to spot reduce?

Not really. Doing crunches and tons of ab exercises won't make your abs show, or else you'd see many overweight people with a six pack. When you lose body fat it will come from different areas, but we can't control it. What we can control is building muscle in those areas to help speed up the process. Abs are the biggest area l see that people think they can crunch their way into having abs. Remember that abs are muscles and they can grow, if you overdue the ab training your waist may get wider.



Conclusion

You can't reduce fat in any particular area of your body by targeting it with exercises, You can reduce fat by proper dieting, and your body will decide how it comes off (which areas will become lean frst and which will be stubborn). Our bodies are all genetically programmed differently, and there's nothing we can do to change that. We all have our "fat spots" that annoy us to no end, and that's just genetics for you.
