Despite diet and exercise, sometimes fat just hangs around in areas that we want it gone from. Fat at the belly, waist, and legs can be among the most annoying to try and get rid of. It can be disheartening to do work, lose weight, but find yourself still struggling to get into your jeans or shirts. Where do you turn when you’ve got stubborn fat and need options for getting rid of it?

Paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise there are non-invasive fat reduction treatments to help sculpt your body into a desired result.

There are isolation exercises, diet options, and other physical practices you can employ to try and tackle stubborn fat. When all else fails, however, and you’re facing a genetic issue, a look at truSculpt iD may be your best bet for getting to that last milestone when it comes to weight loss and body image challenges.

Diet

There’s a lot you can do in your diet to help that fat move along. Soluble fiber is one of the best nutrients you can eat for fat loss. Soluble fiber absorbs water, creating a sort of gel that slows down the movement of food in your system, helping you to feel fuller. And studies have shown it can have an effect on belly fat loss. While doing this avoid trans fats and overindulging in alcohol.

Stress

Stress does more to your body, physically, than you think. It triggers the adrenal glands to produce a stress hormone called cortisol which increases appetite and increases food storage in the body. High stress levels will make you hungry and force your body to store that food rather than use it, as an old instinctual response to stressful situations. This is why activities like yoga can be so helpful to fat loss.

Cardio

Aerobic exercises can be hugely beneficial to knocking away stubborn body fat. It’s shown to be the most effective form of exercises to tackle the issues of lingering body fat, though some debate exists as to whether higher intensity or moderate intensity is more beneficial. Aiming at 300 minutes of aerobic exercises per week can have huge beneficial effects on your body fat.

Should I Eat More Carbs or More Protein?

Carbs are the building blocks of energy for our bodies. We need them. But too many when you’re not using the energy and it will be stored away as fat. This doesn’t mean you should cut carbs out, but making sure you’re eating the right carbs, those high in starch, is going to be much better for your body and your attempts at cutting fat away.
