Proven Methods for Reducing Belly Fat & Stubborn Fat
Losing those last 5 to 10 lbs can be challenging. Many fit men and women have stubborn fat deposits, like belly fat that resist diet and exercise. Fortunately there are proven methods to deal with the last inch of fat. Learn about the many options available, and discover which fat reduction methods are backed with clinical research and really work and which methods are actually myths.
Losing that Last Bit of Fat that Just Won’t Budge
Stubborn fat deposits that refuse to respond to diet and exercise is an aesthetic bane for most adult men and women (especially women who have given birth, but can’t figure out how to get rid of the post pregnancy belly fat.) Those last 10lbs of fat that tend to cling to certain parts of the body, such as the belly, upper arms, thighs, or hip area may seem impossible to lose, no matter the effort.
Why is it so hard to get rid of stubborn fat deposits?
The first thing to consider when it comes to losing those last few pounds that have settled around your mid-line is not all fat is created equal. “The moderation in all things” mantra certainly applies to body fat. Too much is not healthy, but neither is too little.
For active, healthy people, a stubborn area of fat, such as a belly pooch, is not a bad thing…at least not for your body. It may be an aesthetic burden, but it’s a physiological one. In fact, your belly pooch or thunder thighs may even be healthy. Fat is a fundamental energy source that your body needs to stay alive and function properly. Scientist believe this may be one of the reasons fit people struggle to lose those last 5 to 10 pounds of weight. Evolutionary left overs, have programmed your body to consider that stubborn fat deposit as beneficial, serving as an emergency energy reserve. Considering that it doesn’t harm anything, your body keeps hold of it for good measure, just in case you ever need it, like if you become stranded on a deserted island, or some other unlikely survival situation.
But, if you are like most people, you live in a city with a Trader Joes a few blocks away from you, and so the slight advantage a stubborn fat deposit may provide your body in an emergency is no longer applicable to your living situation, and it certainly does not neutralize the discouragement of what a handful of belly fat can do to the appearance of your body.
Get the body you deserve
You work hard to stay fit, and you want it to show. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact there is a lot of good in that. Scientific findings link improved mental and physical well-being with the confidence that comes when all your hard work at the gym and dedication to your diet pays off with a lean, toned beach bod. Not to mention that trying and trying and trying to get rid of a stubborn fat deposit, but always failing to do so, can cause significant stress, and stress can kill you.
