Where you put on weight is largely dictated by your genetics and hormones, so while you can’t control where fat is stored, you are in control of how quickly you can shift even the most stubborn body fat. All you need to do is follow my tried-and-tested fat-loss advice, says New Body Plan’s Joe Warner
What’s your first sign that you’ve gained weight? For me, it’s around my belly button.
I notice the buttons on the bottom of my shirts take an extra second to secure, and how the fabric feels slightly tighter when I stand up or sit down.
What’s so frustrating is that my stomach is the first place I gain weight and the last place from which I lose it. Even when I was doing my own New Body Plan eight-week transformation challenge, I lost fat from my face before my belly! That stubborn patch around my middle was the very last bit I shifted, but shift it I did because I followed all the smart steps to lose body fat quickly and sustainably.
Where on our bodies fat gets deposited when we eat more energy than we burn is largely determined by our hormones: it’s why women tend to store fat around their thighs, hips, and bum, while men tend to gain weight around our chest, back and belly.
So if you, like me, want to shift your stubborn body fat I’ve put together some quick guides on how you can do just that, based on where yours is stored. Just click the relevant option then put my advice into action to get back to your best so you can look and feel better than ever.
