You finally achieved your goals for slimming down through exercise and diet – just don’t look under your chin or at your love handles. It’s very frustrating for those who have worked hard to be in shape but not be able to lose some stubborn fat pockets.
Excess Fat versus Fat Loss
Fat stores energy. Not only is fat more difficult to get energy from, making the body prefer other sources like the body’s sugar before using fat, fat cells in problem areas also get used up at slower rates compared with other fat cells. Other factors like being older, your genes, and some hormones may also make it more difficult for you to achieve permanent fat loss.
