Spot Fat Loss Myth

Spot Fat Loss Myth ~ Jeremy Scott Fitness

There’s no such thing as spot fat loss…..that’s reality!

If you want to a flat belly, tighter stomach, or ripped abs, just doing more sit-ups isn’t going to make it happen.

Want “toned” legs or “firmer” arms? Just doing leg & arms exercises won’t make it happen.

Checkout the video below hopefully this helps you understand the concept a little better.


Your body doesn’t know you don’t want fat on your belly.

24/7/365 your body is always mobilizing & storing fat, from all over your body – your belly, arms, legs, back, you name it.

How we store fat on/in our body varies from man to man & women to women, meaning we are all a little different. Many things play into how & where we store fat such as your:

Genetics – Sex – Hormone Levels – Insulin Sensitivity to name the big ones.

To cut this short and answer the question you are probably asking, “how do I lost body fat?”

You need to be in a calorie deficit, meaning you are eating less food than you body is burning each day – in a macro balanced nutrition set up. Digging deeper into this the better your sensitivity is to insulin, the better your body can mobilize fat (think fat burning).

I can run you all the way down the rabbit hole, but that’s for another blog/video all together. Hopefully this helps you understand that “you can’t spot weight reduce” “you can’ target/spot fat loss”…..

Any other questions please message me below or shoot me an email.


Until next time eat well, train hard & be nice to people.
