IF I SEE ONE MORE fitness account post about their “fat blasting arm workout” or “belly fat blaster” workout IMAAAA LOSE IT.
Let me be CRYSTAL clear here: Unless you get liposuction, you do NOT get to choose WHERE your body loses fat from. In order to lose fat from ANYWHERE, you need to be in a caloric deficit. This means you’re consuming less calories than your body needs to maintain its current weight. This can be done via diet, exercise, and/or a combination of the two.
Soooo, STOP the 5,000 crunches you’re doing per day if your intention is to “lose belly fat”. While targeting certain areas will allow you to gain muscle and strength in those areas, it will NOT decrease the fat lying OVER the muscle.
Moral of the story: Create a deficit, be consistent, and the results will follow. Hard work speaks for itself.
