This is such a common question: “How to lose belly fat for women” that it’s almost the single most asked question I’ve ever heard.
Women all over want to know how to “spot reduce” fat, but the simple truth is that you cannot do that.
Instead, I will teach you the exact, FREE method you can start using right now to drop unwanted fat from all of your “problem areas” at the same time.
So make sure to stick around.
The ‘spot reduction myth’ is just that – it’s a myth and it’s not possible. Countless devices, diets, pills, equipment and infomercials have led us to believe that we can target our bellies or our arms or our legs – and reduce fat just in these areas – but as we’re going to find out today, this is simply not possible.
Bottom-line: You will NEVER be able to “just” lose weight on your legs, butt, lower back, abs – anywhere – and today I want to show you how you can do it the right way.
So let’s get started.
SPOT-REDUCTION IN ONE SPECIFIC AREA IS IMPOSSIBLE
Popular media outlets, the news, videos, “experts” and other people would have led you to believe that you can spot-reduce fat. But that’s simply just not possible. Doing crunches has scientifically been proven to not do a damn thing for your abdominal fat.
That’s really, really bad news. Good news is, there’s good news.
Fortunately for you, there is a very simple solution to this problem. If you want fat to disappear on any part of your body, you definitely have to lose overall body fat.
How do you do that? Glad you asked!
In order to lose body fat, you have to follow a diet that restricts your calories. What that means is consuming less food than your body needs.
But more about that below.
SO IF SPOT REDUCTION IS NOT POSSIBLE, WHAT’S THE SECRET?
As I’ve stated above, the only way to lose fat in any one specific area of your body is by reducing overall body fat. Some controversy exists surrounding what body fat percentage women should aim to be at but generally speaking below 25 percent is great for women.

The idea is to diet down to lower body fat levels in order to expose lean muscle underneath areas that were previously hidden by fat. This could be your buttox, arms, back – anywhere.
That’s awesome news. By simply leaning down and losing overall fat, your problem areas will also go away and you’ll be left looking amazing.

DIETING & WEIGHT LOSS MADE EASY: AWESOME RESOURCES
When it comes to these kinds of things, I’ve known a lot of people who generally want to avoid the issue they’re facing. These are the same people that buy every latest fat loss device known to man.
The simple truth is that there’s no simple and effortless solution to weight loss or fat loss.
It’s true. It takes dedication, commitment and hard work to achieve your goals, any goals, and it really all depends on you. However, there are some tricks and tips to make it much easier for you.
TRICK #1: USE THE IIFYM APPROACH
IIFYM stands for If It Fits Your Macros. Macro-and-micronutrients are essential nutrients your body needs to survive. Eating too many macronutrients (calories) leads to fat gain. Your body can always use more micronutrients so you don’t need to worry about that.
IIFYM is a great approach because it doesn’t force you to limit your food choices. You can pretty much eat anything you want as long as you stay within your caloric deficit.
TRICK #2: USE INTERMITTENT FASTING
Intermittent fasting is no new thing nor has it been invented by any one singular person in recent years. Countless fitness authors declare themselves to be experts which is great and all, but it’s really just a technique you can use with a few awesome benefits.
Fasting is no magic bullet for fat loss. You still have to eat in a deficit and you still have to get enough protein but fasting makes it easier. Bigger meals that are more satisfying and amazing to eat will become your new “normal” with intermittent fasting.
Simply push your first meal later into the day and voila – eat 2-3 bigger meals later on and you’re set! Just make sure to count and keep track of your macros on a daily basis to make sure you’re still in a deficit!

TRICK #3: INCLUDE THE FOODS YOU LOVE
As we know, adherence to your diet is the number one factor that will determine whether you will reach your fat loss goals or not. Simply put: If you do not or cannot stick to your fat loss plan, chances are high you’ll quit.
In order to promote adherence it’s always wise to never exclude foods you think of as “dirty” or “evil” – rather, include them instead. This way, you never feel deprived and you can feel good about your fat loss efforts.
Never feel guilty again by always including the foods you love to eat.
Don’t feel like you always have to “eat clean” and avoid “dirty” foods. As long as you include nutritionally dense foods in your diet or “clean” foods, you’re good to go.

DIETING WITHOUT LIFTING WEIGHTS LEADS TO AN UNDESIRABLE PHYSIQUE AND WEAK BODY
When it comes down to weight loss, I’d argue that you want to also look good, no? For the most part, fat loss without building any muscle leads to a physique you may find undesirable.
In order to maximise your aesthetic appeal while losing weight is to adopt some form of a weight training routine.
Heading out to the gym will be a great decision while you’re losing fat. Not only will you be looking better and building muscle in the right places, you will also be boosting your metabolism.
More weight lifting = more fat loss? Sign me up!
That’s right. Resistance training leads to an increased metabolism because of the increased muscle mass your body has to provide for.
So, you look amazing, feel much better and you lose more fat? Why wouldn’t anyone want that?
