Spot Reduction Myth

We often hear advertisements for ways to burn fat from just your mid-section, glutes, or other problem areas. However, as much as we’d all love to target fat on the abdomen, glutes, hips, thighs, or underarms, there is no such thing as spot reduction. That means you can’t burn fat from just one specific spot on your body.

Exercise in specific areas of your body may increase your muscle strength or endurance in those areas. However, fat is generally reduced throughout the entire body, not just one spot.

The best way to reduce overall body fat is to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
