05/14/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 15. May 2014 06:09


A reader named Mary sent me an e-mail asking how she can spot train for the flab on the side of her thighs before the swimming pools open soon.

I’m sorry to be depressing, but you can’t spot train.  That is an old workout wives tale. 

The way to reduce love handles (I struggle with that one!), or thigh fat is to create a well-rounded exercise plan IN CONJUNCTION with a reasonable calorie count, clean eating food plan.  Save your money from buying the latest gadget on late night t.v. (sorry Suzanne Summers), and be realistic on calorie totals.

 That means calories coming in ( and quality calories, not junk food), and calories going out (exercise).The only real way to reduce fat in one specific area is to work hard, and commit yourself to improving your entire body.  It won’t happen in a week, or even a month, but if you are consistent you will see positive results.  Anyone who tells you otherwise…is trying to sell you something!
