What is stubborn fat

The first thing to know about stubborn fat is that it is physiologically different than other fat. Stubborn fat has a high density of alpha-receptors compared to betas, is more insulin sensitive, and receives less blood flow than regular fat.

Subcutaneous fat (fat below the skin) is more stubborn than visceral fat (the fat around your organs) or intramuscular fat (the fat in your muscle). The most stubborn areas of fat are the hips, butt, thighs, underarms of women, and the love handles on men. Spot reduction technically does occur, but at such a marginal level that it’s essentially insignificant. Essentially, trying to spot reduce fat with targeted exercise is like trying to change a tire with a pencil. Spot reduction is essentially impossible to do naturally, thankfully we have treatments to assist you.
