How Can I Target Areas Where I Have the Most Body Fat?
If you own a vacuum you can do it yourself, otherwise, I know a great plastic surgeon that I can recommend. Spot reduction is impossible as the body stores and loses body fat based on genetic and gender factors, therefore, there is no specific exercise diet or supplement that will allow you to do this. Here is another tip that we call the snowfall theory. Where you store the most body fat is like the huge mounds of snow in a parking lot — when the spring comes, they take forever to melt.
P.S. If you take the first alternative, I recommend a Hoover.
How Much Weight Can You Lose in a Week?
Since fat burning is a slow process, a man can lose 1-2 pounds per week safely and effectively, which means keeping it off for the long term without any rebounding. Women unfortunately do not have the fat burning capacity that men do and therefore can only lose 0.5-1 pound per week. Of course there are many methods to increase these averages, but most of them cause water loss vs. fat loss. If you’re truly interested in changing the way you look and the way you fit into clothes, dropping water just doesn’t cut it. You have to lose body fat.
What Type of Training Best Suits My Body Type?
Ectomorph: Use moderate to heavy weights for weight training to promote muscle toning or growth. Your metabolism is racing so eat as much as you need but make sure it is healthy. Do very little cardio to avoid burning extra calories.
Mesomorph: Moderation is the key. Use a moderate rep and moderate pace in the studio. Eat a diet of lean protein and little fat. Add some starchy carbs in the morning and fibrous carbs in the evening. Keep the cardio to 30 minutes, 3 times per week.
Endomorph: Use a fast pace in the gym. Try circuit training and you’ll need 1 hour of cardio 5 times per week to encourage your sluggish metabolism.
Know thyself and expect results!
