Most women, even if they are in great shape, have a few areas of their bodies where they’d love to lose some fat and gain some muscle.
Problem areas can occur pretty much anywhere, but three of the most common regions are the belly, hips and thighs (saddlebags), and the upper arms. These issues can be frustrating and damaging to self-esteem. So what are some common tactics women use to battle the bulge?
Of course, the number one method women use for solving problem areas is targeted exercise. Problem areas are called problems for a reason, however, and many people find that despite their best efforts, those saddlebags are staying put. Why? Hormones, genetics, stress, and other factors influence fat retention.
Next is diet. Many women have tried all manner of diet programs–from “miracle” pills, to low-fat, low-carb, etc. There are so many options out there that the information can quickly become overwhelming. It’s generally accepted though, that eating more whole, unprocessed food and more fruits and vegetables is key to keeping the body healthy and looking great.
Loose Clothing and Shapewear
If the workout process isn’t really producing results or there’s not much time in the day for an intense workout, women often attempt to hide or improve their problem areas through donning loose clothing and shapewear.
Unfortunately, loose clothing is usually not the most flattering look. Shapewear consists of undergarments that smooth out problem areas and improve their shape. Shapewear can be a great tool for feeling good in clothing.
