Spot Training: A Myth that I Really Wish Were True
If I had a dime for every time someone asked me how to lose the fat off their belly, inner thighs or upper arm I would be a seriously rich lady. The cold hard truth is that it doesn’t work that way…and it’s sad. There is no magic way to reduce body fat in only certain areas of your body. But good news…there is a way! Here is what you can do:
Resistance Training- build lean muscle through regular resistance training workouts. You can use your own bodyweight, Dumbbells, resistance bands, TRX, you name it. Just get your muscles working against resistance. This will build lean muscle that makes you appear trimmer and more toned. Building muscle also increases your metabolism so you can burn that fat literally while you sleep. Seriously, sign me up.
Eat Clean- shed body fat all over by eating real food (lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and yes healthy fats too) by eating 4-5 times a day. Remove processed foods, refined carbohydrates, sugar and alcohol as much as possible.
That’s it. No magic pill. Diet and exercise. Body fat is going to come off by doing this. We can’t control where it comes off first but we can absolutely control how soon we start taking it off. I challenge you to start TODAY!
