Fat Myth Busting

Have you been exercising relentlessly, whilst watching what you eat, yet still can’t shift stubborn fat from areas like your stomach, thighs, hips  and upper arms?

There are a few factors that may be playing a role here, so read on to see if any of them relate to your situation and then what we recommend could help!


As we age, our metabolic rate decreases – or, the number of calories the body needs to function becomes less. Yet, often, people continue to consume the same amount as they always have. Added to this, women have menopause to navigate. With this alteration in hormones, women begin to hold on to fat. Even a slight disruption in our hormone levels can cause fat to hang around!


Calories in alcohol can’t be stored for later use so, whilst drinking, your metabolism shifts its focus from burning fat to burning alcohol calories. Added to this, alcohol inhibits proper digestive function, impaired digestion and absorption of nutrients. Quite simply, consuming foods and drinks high in sugar can lead to weight gain that’s difficult to shift.


Cardio workouts are great, of course. However, on their own, won’t help to shift unwanted fat. Instead, a balanced combination of cardio and weight-bearing activities is what’s needed. Why? Because muscle burns fat. Added to this – your workouts need to be challenging. A gentle walk daily is great for many reasons – physically, emotionally and mentally – but it won’t really help to shed that stubborn fat. What’s needed is a high-intensity workout that burns a lot of calories, at least 4 times a week for 30 to 60 minutes each.


If you find you’re packing away lots of refined grains and sugars then you’ll never shift that unwanted fat. Instead focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains, rich in antioxidants. Sounds obvious – but we often need these kinds of reminders to stay on track!


Not all fats are equal! If you are chomping down on too much saturated fat (think butter and meat) and not so much of the monounsaturatedand polyunsaturated fats

(like avocados, nuts and salmon) then you are probably struggling a bit more with excess fat and finding it more challenging to shift. However, it’s good to remember that, as with many foods, everything should be consumed in moderation!


Doing 50 sit-ups a day and not seeing any change to your waistline? That’s because we can’t spot-reduce fat. When you burn calories and rid your body of fat, you lose it from all over your body, not just the area you’re working on. And, where one person loses fat first is not necessarily where someone else might – all bodies are different!
