All of us have one particular body part with excess fat be it stomach, hips or the back which when we look at in the mirror, we wish could disappear by some means. Spot reduction as people think is the idea if losing fat from one particular area by working on that muscle. This is an absolute myth. Spot reduction in real does not exist. For years people have fallen in the trap of advertisements of belts, vibrators etc that claim to help you lose your tummy or buttock fat which all are truly gimmicks.
We gain weight when we consume more calories than what we expend. The excess calories are stored as fat in the cells in a specific pattern which differs for every person. Thatâ€™s why we often see people exercising one body part more than the other. For example people who have a huge tummy like a spare tire, try to lose it by doing 1000 crunches. But they donâ€™t realize that by doing so they are just strengthening their abdominal muscles and the fat remains there only comfortably. Men generally have more fat on their tummy (apple shaped body) and women accumulate that fat on their hips (pear shapes body). This clearly shows that men and women are designed genetically differently. When you start losing fat gradually, the first place you put on fat is the last place you will lose fat from because of your genetic makeup. You would lose fat faster in some areas and very slowly in others.
The best way to lose fat in any problematic area you have to follow a good cardiovascular exercise routine like running, jogging, cycling, aerobics, dancing etc coupled with weight training and a balanced low fat diet is the most crucial part. This will help you lose fat overall and also in the most desired area. So donâ€™t be a part of passive fat loss ideas. Lets your body do its job at its best.
