What causes localized fat?

Localized fat is simply an accumulation of calories in the form of fat. That is, when you ingest a quantity of calories greater than those necessary for the daily expenditure of the organism, the body stores these calories in the adipose cells as an energy source. That’s why when we diet and practice physical exercise we lose fat from our body, since there are no “left over” calories to be stored in the form of fat.

However, why is it that even with proper nutrition and regular physical exercise, there are still areas of the body with localized fat? Because, in addition to excessive calorie intake, there are other factors that influence the accumulation of fat in specific areas, such as: hormonal issues, diseases, genetic predispositions, smoking, among others.

The main types of localized fat are:

Fat located on the thighs
Fat located on the abdomen
Fat located on the legs
Fat located on the flanks
Fat located on the back
Fat located on the knees
Fat located on the jowls
Fat located on the arms

How to eliminate localized fat?

In addition, localized fat can impair self-esteem and well-being, impacting social life. In this sense, treating localized fat is no longer just a matter of aesthetics, but of health.
