The Myth Of Spot Reduction – A Lie?
For me, it was always my stomach.
I have a fairly long and lanky build, and am lucky enough to have naturally fairly lean legs. Mind you, pregnancy did change even that for me, but more on that a bit later
But my stomach. Ugh. I’ve been in the health industry for 12 years and it seemed that for most of that time, no matter whether I was lean and in shape or whether I was carrying a few extra kilos post-holiday, my stomach was never where I wanted it to be.
For you, it might be your lower body that stubbornly refuses to change. Or it could be your love handles. Possibly even those extra bits around the shoulder blades?! We all have the parts we love to hate, I don’t think that’s anything to be ashamed about.
The problem of course is that if you’re already eating well and working out regularly, those annoying parts are probably just the way you’re built. Right? After all, everyone knows you can’t spot reduce body fat! Eat well, exercise, and try not to let stuff get to you too much. Surely that’s the best recipe for success when it comes to being the ‘best you’ possible?
