I’m Losing Weight, But I Still Have Belly Fat!

I recently received a great question from a reader who was losing weight, but wasn’t losing much belly fat in the process.  She writes:


Please advise….I am losing weight, but I’m noticing that I’m not losing much belly fat.  Now, the reason that I started the weight loss was mainly for the belly fat…so my question is how do I lose more weight around my waist.

I understand this can be frustrating for some, but just remember this is the typically the last area that people lose fat, especially men.

However, there a few things you can do to speed up the process!  Here is my reply:

Great question! And you’re not alone as this seems to be a pretty popular question I get.

It’s important to understand that you can’t spot reduce fat! Meaning you can’t lose just the fat in your stomach area.

With that being said, it sounds like you’re already on the right track! You’re losing weight and a little belly fat too. So, to lose more belly fat you need to continue what you’re doing and burn more body fat.

If you want to speed up the process and burn your belly fat off quicker then either remove a few more calories from your diet and/or burn more calories through exercise. Preferably by mixing cardio exercises with resistance training.

As I stated in my reply, this is a very popular question I get and felt it was worth revisiting. I’m extremely pleased that this reader was already on the right track and successfully losing weight and belly fat.
