What is Excess / Stubborn Fat?
Excess or stubborn body fat refers to adipose tissue that accumulates in specific areas of the body and appears to be resistant to typical diet and exercise efforts.
Many areas of the body can be affected, including: the upper arms, thighs, breasts / chest, stomach, back (bra fat / banana rolls), hips, flanks (love handles), knees, under the chin (double chin) and ankles. This type of fat can be particularly frustrating when you’re making the effort to follow a healthy lifestyle in order to achieve a leaner physique.
What Causes Excess / Stubborn Fat?
The development of excess or stubborn fat can be attributed to a combination of genetic, hormonal, and lifestyle factors.
Genetics play a significant role in determining how and where your body stores fat. Some individuals are predisposed to accumulate fat in specific areas, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs.
Hormonal imbalances, such as elevated cortisol levels due to chronic stress, can also contribute to this concern. Additionally, factors such as lack of physical activity, poor diet choices, and inadequate sleep can further exacerbate this issue.
What Is the Treatment for Excess / Stubborn Fat?
Addressing excess or stubborn body fat requires a multi-faceted approach that will also need to be tailored to you specifically, as what works for other people may not be what works for you.
Prema will always recommend adopting a balanced and sustainable diet that includes whole, nutrient-dense foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Additionally, avoiding excessive consumption of processed foods, sugary beverages, and high-calorie snacks is essential in reducing overall body fat.
Regular exercise is also found to be a key component, incorporating a combination of cardiovascular activities like running, cycling, or swimming, alongside strength training exercises to help increase metabolic rate and build lean muscle mass. Our clinic also has the technology to assist in effective reduction of excess body fat, enhancing the results of your recommended lifestyle changes. Our treatments include EMSculpt Neo and the Emerald Laser.
