You have to accept there is no way to change where your body stores fat, because your genetics determine that. Weight loss may not change your body shape, but it will reduce your size. There is no way to lose weight in specific areas of the body. For example, crunches might target abdominal muscles, but they don’t burn fat from the belly; running might use your lower half but it doesn’t mean that you’re burning fat from the legs alone. The best way to get rid of fat is through regular cardio exercise and a healthy diet. Cardio burns fat from all over the body. But if you tend to store fat in a certain area it may take a little longer to reach that area of concern. Stay consistent and you will lower your risk for future health problems by achieving a healthy weight.
