Genetics play a large role in where and how we store body fat and thus women are more predisposed to gain weight in their hips, butt and thighs whereas men are more likely to gain weight in their stomach which is why exercising these areas will help the muscles underneath grow. A large layer of fat over these muscles will become more visible with growth and may make the area look slightly tighter and more muscular than previously if you are not carrying these but you won’t actually be losing any fat in that area because those areas will look larger than they would if you simply had a low body fat percentage if you gain a large amount of muscle like through a strength-training or weight lifting regimen.
To slim down your problem areas, the only reliable is to lose body fat overall but we can’t determine which areas shed fat first unfortunately. Only by continuing to drop weight will you eventually see results in you abdomen so if you carry most of your weight in your stomach along with a little excess fat overall, you may notice your face, arms, legs or breasts slimming down before the weight on your stomach starts to drop.
Most doctors and fitness experts agree that real fat loss begins in the kitchen not in the gym thus many doctors and nutritionists cite 2lbs per week as a healthy weight loss goal and while it may seem pointless to exercise, there are two main reasons why it is important for people with the aesthetic goals of achieving the perfect beach body.
The 9 Most Unanswered Questions about Diets
People who exercise along with dieting are more likely to keep the weight off than their counterparts who lose weight simply by dieting and while this may partially have to do with the fact that exercise helps you retain lean muscle mass while dieting, which keeps your metabolism from bottoming out, it is also because working out and eating right are part of a healthy lifestyle and committing to a healthy lifestyle is easier for many people to maintain than yo-yo dieting.
6 Facts About Tips Everyone Thinks Are True
To people looking to lose weight for an aesthetic reason, the other reason exercise is important is because of a phenomenon where your muscle increases in size often becoming visible under the skin, think six-pack abs or bulging biceps, which is called muscle hypertrophy. Aside from the fact that simply losing weight won’t make you look fit or cut but rather simply make you skinny, you can also achieve the idealized fit body by pairing fat loss with periods of caloric surplus and muscle gain.
