Burning fat locally: Is it possible?

burning fat locally

Would you like a flat stomach? Or do you have a specific body part where you want to get a bit slimmer? Of course, it would be ideal to be able to burn fat locally. Then you just choose which area of your body you want to lose weight. There are plenty of miracle remedies that claim to be able to do that, but is this actually possible? You'll find out in this blog.

How does fat burning work?

You burn fat by maintaining a negative energy balance. In this case, you burn more energy than you take in. You do this by eating less and/or exercising more. We recommend building this up slowly, so you don't lose a lot of weight too quickly. If you lose weight very quickly, chances are you will lose not only fat, but also a lot of muscle mass.

Can you burn fat locally?

We have to disappoint you, unfortunately, because it is impossible to lose fat locally. Would you like a flat stomach, slimmer arms or narrower hips? Then you will have to burn fat all over your body. So you may not only lose belly fat, but also lose weight in other areas of your body. Keep that in mind when you start losing weight.

And if I only train one muscle group?

It is widely thought that doing abdominal exercises will make you lose belly fat. Unfortunately, this is not true. Abdominal exercises are good, but they do not burn the fat on top of your six-pack. They only strengthen your abdominal muscles. This also applies to the other muscles in your body, such as your arm and leg muscles. So try to train your entire body and do both cardio and strength training. That way, you will lose fat and maintain your muscle mass.
