How to Zap the Fat Wherever You Need It

Nov 17, 2007
Don't you just wish that you can lose fat in a certain area by doing simple things? Trust me; I have definitely been wanting to just cut off my fat on my stomach at times. It gets so frustrating at times when your body doesn't distribute fat all over and you only get one or two problem areas that you just cant understand.

Im sure we have all been there with being unhappy with our legs, butt, stomach, you name it! Even people that are not overweight sometimes get a little bit of fat in an area that they are unhappy with. For example, my sister weighs 108 lbs and she is 5'4. This may seem like an ideal weight for her height, but she hates her legs because she has a bit of cellulite on them. With someone weighing that much it almost seems impossible.

People that usually have a problem area will tend to do exercises for that specific place to reduce the amount of fat there. People will fall for all of the new television ads that promise to flatten tummies, lift the butt, and tighten the legs. But is this the proper way to go about losing weight in certain areas?

Actually, you may believe or not but working out your problem areas to get rid of fat is a myth. It does not work to target only a specific area that you are unhappy with. When you exercise that certain area all you will be doing is gaining muscle. Now, you will pretty much be wasting your time because your muscles will be covered by the fat. So you can forget about getting that ab lounge or bun and thigh roller because they wont work if you need to lose weight first.

Right now, there are also creams on the market that claim you can lose inches by spreading it on your problem areas. I wont even get into this subject because it is a darn right scam. People will buy into these products with hope they don't have to do anything, but this method is kind of like using the magic diet pill. It doesn't exist!

The best way to lose the fat in your problem is to get onto a good diet plan and exercise a lot. When you do cardio with weight training combined you will be able to melt the fat away quickly. As soon as you start cardio your body will know exactly where to put the fat away from and will melt it away for good.
