Spot reduction refers to a client who says that they are happy with their body but they want to take off a little from a problem area. For a woman it is frequently her behind. She can spot tone and make a certain muscle group firmer and stronger. However, no one can spot reduce. For all of us when we gain weight it goes on in a certain order according to your genetic package. Whatever that order is for you, whenever you lose weight it will always come off in exactly the opposite order. An individual can gain weight in the order of buttocks, thighs, belly then breasts. For that person they will always lose it in the breasts first followed by belly, thighs then buttocks. Therefore if you stop and start a diet and exercise program before you get to your target several times you can completely change your body shape from curvy to a pear or an apple shape. The secret is that when you start a diet and exercise program you have to keep going (without stopping and starting) until you get to the area you want to reduce. Read more
