Often, we get asked about how someone can target their fat loss, what exercises are best for reducing fat around areas like the thighs and stomach. Although it would be fantastic if we could target specific sites and increase fat loss, there are no such methods.
The rate of fat loss in different areas of our body is determined by how the fat cells respond to fight/flight hormones, insulin and blood flow, all of which are largely uncontrollable and genetically influenced.
The body will draw energy from fat cells in response to a calorie deficit to a limit, meaning that unfortunately these stubborn areas just need longer. These areas will we be used to draw energy once less stubborn areas (arms…) have used most of the stored energy. In summary to lose fat in these stubborn areas you simply just need keep at a calorie deficit for longer.
