The most common form of unwanted fat is subcutaneous fat. This is the top layer of fat that covers our muscles. The purpose of subcutaneous fat is to help the body store energy, regulate body temperature, and protect the muscle tissues below it. The most common area that subcutaneous fat can be found is on the stomach. This can be pinched between two fingers. Unwanted fat can be built up in excessive amounts through genetics, hormones, diet, lifestyle habits, sleep, stress, and alcohol consumption. Everyone is different in the way they store fat. While some may store fat in their stomach, others may store it in their legs. Consistent weight loss is the best method to counter unwanted fat. During weight loss fat is lost all over the body. We recommend not losing weight too quickly as this may result in sagging skin or skin laxity. When losing weight it is important to be patient and have a long term goal.
