Stubborn Fat

A type of body fat that is difficult to lose through diet and exercise, often accumulating in specific areas of the body

Stubborn Fat

What is it?

Stubborn fat refers to fat that is resistant to diet and exercise and tends to accumulate in specific areas of the body, such as the belly, hips, thighs, and arms. This type of fat is often associated with a higher risk of certain health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.


What Causes it?

The causes of stubborn fat are not fully understood, but it is believed to be influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Some of the factors that can contribute to the accumulation of stubborn fat include hormonal imbalances, aging, poor diet, lack of physical activity, and chronic stress. Additionally, some medical conditions and medications may also contribute to the development of stubborn fat.


What Can You Do To Help Naturally?

While there is no natural way to spot-reduce stubborn fat, making healthy lifestyle choices such as eating a balanced diet, increasing physical activity, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and limiting alcohol intake can help reduce overall body fat and improve body composition.


What areas of the body are most commonly affected by stubborn fat?

Stubborn fat tends to accumulate in specific areas of the body, such as the belly, hips, thighs, and arms.

Can spot-reducing exercises help reduce stubborn fat in specific areas?

While spot-reducing exercises can help tone and strengthen muscles in specific areas of the body, they do not target stubborn fat specifically.

Is it possible to lose stubborn fat without losing muscle mass?

Yes, it is possible to lose stubborn fat without losing muscle mass by combining a healthy diet with regular exercise that includes both cardio and strength training.

Can supplements or other natural remedies help reduce stubborn fat?

While there are some supplements and natural remedies that are marketed as 'fat-burners', there is limited scientific evidence to support their effectiveness in reducing stubborn fat.

Is liposuction a safe and effective treatment for stubborn fat?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves removing fat from specific areas of the body. While it can be effective in reducing stubborn fat, it does carry risks and should only be considered after consultation with a qualified medical professional.

Our Approach

Stubborn fat is something that can be very difficult to remove with diet and exercise alone. At RSA, following a detailed consultation, we use the Venus Legacy radiofrequency treatment to stimulate lipolysis (fat removal) and target these stubborn areas. We also combine treatments with the post-lipo programme on the Body Ballancer to ensure effective removal of excess fat cells.
