Stubborn Fat Removal
Stubborn fat, while not technically a medical term, is generally considered as that last bit of fat you want to lose to achieve your goals. It’s often what holds you back from developing muscle definition in your abs, slimming your buttocks, or getting rid of flabby arms.
Stubborn fats are, as the name implies, difficult to remove – which makes them really really annoying!
People carry excess fat in various ways. Men tend to accumulate them in the mid-section, while women store excess fats on their hips, thighs and buttocks. These areas tend to be problematic. While working out, people tend to concentrate on those troubled areas and neglect other parts of the body which can lead to unequal distribution of fat and muscles.
People also respond to diet and exercise in different ways. There’s always that one person who can shed fat with little effort, while others struggle to do so despite exercising and eating healthily. Don’t you just hate those guys who have it easy?
Facts about stubborn fat that you may not know
Research shows that once past adolescence, the number of fat cells in your body stays the same for the rest of your life.
When you lose “weight” or reduce your body fat through conventional means such as dieting and exercise, what really happens is the amount of fat in your fat cells is reduced. The fat cells are still there. Unless, of course, you remove them with fat busting procedures.
