Certain fat deposits are very difficult to lose. This stubborn fat is found in both men and women. In women, fat accumulates on the hips, thighs, buttocks and abdomen. In men, it is found on the abdomen and flanks. Even people who exercise regularly and have very healthy diets have stubborn pockets of fat that remain. In very low caloric diets, fat is lost in other areas first and then muscle mass is lost, but the stubborn fat can remain. With a lower caloric intake, the metabolic rate decreases, there is a decrease in fat-burning hormones and enzymes, and less fat is burned. When the body thinks it is being deprived of food, it will start to hold on to the fat for energy.
To keep burning fat, it is important to have a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Your family doctor can recommend a dietician and fitness expert to help formulate a plan for healthy living. For those stubborn pockets of fat that just won't go, UltraShape is the answer.
