SPOT REDUCTION- REAL OR FAKE?

SPOT REDUCTION- REAL OR FAKE?

I’ve seen many people who wish or want to lose fat from a particular part of body like waistline , arms , thighs , face  , glutes etc.

Spot reduction also known as Targeted Fat Loss . To get that flat stomach I’ve seen many people doing 100s of crunches per day and targeting their only muscles that is abdomen.

It is like driving your 4 wheel car with only two wheels! Do you believe that doing 100s of crunches per day will help you to achieve that flat stomach that you are dreaming of and you doing squats daily to lose fat from thighs or are you daily chewing chewing gum for that chiseled jaw line ?

The answer is big NO! Yes, you read it right, by doing 1000s of crunches per month, doing squats & chewing gum will not help you for that flat stomach, lean thighs & chiseled jaw line that  your are dreaming of.

Now we know that it is impossible to do spot reduction. So what’s the solution for this problem?

The Solution for this problem is LOSE OVERALL BODY FAT PERCENTAGE like we had explained in earlier blog. Go check it out if you haven’t. Let us explain you how fat loss works.

HOW FAT LOSS WORKS?

The fat in your body or cells found in the form of triglycerides ,which are Stored fats that the body can use for energy.

Before they can be burned for energy , triglycerides must be broken down into smaller section called free fatty acid and glycerol , which are able to enter the blood stream . During exercise , the free fatty acids and glycerol used as fuel can come from anywhere in the body, not specifically from the area that is being exercised.

Or In Simple words we can say that you have to decrease your overall body fat percentage to get the dream body you are dreaming for.
