WHAT IS STUBBORN FAT?
The number of fat cells in our body is set during adolescence and remains constant through adulthood, regardless of whether we gain or lose weight. When our weight fluctuates these fat cells get bigger if we gain weight and shrink if we lose weight. Many people have trouble spots or areas, where unwanted fat seems to accumulate that, will be nearly impossible for them to lose through diet and exercise.1
These areas of stubborn fat are more resistant to fat burning because they function as stores of energy for the body and are physiologically primed to resist fat burning. Common trouble areas of fat deposit include: love handles, hips, waist, back, tummy, under the chin, and chest (gynecomastia).2
CAUSES OF STUBBORN FAT3
The natural estrogen level of the body is maintained within normal limits by the body’s ability to substitute them. In a natural scenario, the fat cells store fat and increase in size. When the need arises, the fat is burned to release energy. A rise in estrogen levels would cause the body to store more fat than it really needs. This is what causes the formation of stubborn fat deposits.3
Irregular eating habits can make it difficult for the body to process the foods you eat. Late-night meals can have a detrimental effect. Having a small gap between dinner and sleep would mean that the body will not have enough time to assimilate nutrients from the food and burn the fats.4
Junk food and other processed foods can easily cause stubborn fat accumulation. This also includes sweeteners, packed juices, and food items with refined sugars. Having too much-processed food in your diet can result in your body retaining more fat and making it more difficult to lose.4
Sodas and other fizzy drinks are among some of the main culprits responsible for causing belly fat. Drinking different types of alcohol might have different effects on the body and how it processes fat. 4
If your work requires you to sit in the same place for hours or if you are leading an overall sedentary lifestyle, it will be more difficult for you to burn excess fat. 4
