Say So Long!
Ever hear the saying "If you can't tone it, tan it?" when it comes to stubborn fat? Some areas of fat just will not budge despite eating right and hitting the gym. But, what causes fat to be so stubborn, and what can you do about it? Instead of tanning it, why not get rid of it entirely with Smart Lipo from Innovations Medical?
What Causes Stubborn Fat?
Everyone has fat. As a matter of fact, it is estimated that the average adult has about 40 billion fat cells in their body. Fat cells serve the body as a storage system that gives you energy. This energy allows you to digest food and perform normal body functions and helps you be active or move around.
When the cells of the body collect fat, they increase in size, and thus so does your midsection, thighs or butt. If you increase your calorie consumption, the cells don't only grow, but your body also produces new fat cells, and you gain weight.
Getting rid of fat is harder than growing fat cells. Fat is harder to get rid of because once you gain weight, your body adjusts to having extra fat (storage/energy) and holds on to fat "just in case" your body needs it later.
Where we put fat is genetically predetermined, but hormonal fluctuations can also contribute to how we gain (and lose).
This means no matter how much you exercise or eat healthily, your body could hold on to pockets of fat because it thinks it could be used in the future.
What Is the Solution to Getting Rid of Stubborn Fat?
So, if your body holds on to stubborn fat, does that mean you're just stuck with it forever? No, but it takes a lot of work. One pound of fat contains 4,500 kcal, so to lose one pound you need to burn off these calories (think bicycling 100 miles or more) and eat absolutely nothing to lose just a single pound. This situation applies to both men and women.
You can get rid of stubborn fat with Smart Lipo from Innovations Medical. Smart Lipo is an innovative form of liposuction that requires only a tiny incision. Smart Lipo not only removes stubborn fat, but also helps tighten the skin by kicking up the body's collagen production. The result is a shapelier physique and a more toned look.
So, Is the Fat Gone Forever?
Yes, that fat is gone forever. But that doesn't mean new stubborn fat cells can't return if you don't maintain a healthy weight. Keep your results by eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise.
