Baby Fat Problem On Chest, Stomach, Back And Hips

Question

Hi motley, i have been struggling with my weight as i have lost a lot of weight but still have baby fat around my chest, stomach, back and hips. Can you please give me advice on how i can lose fat and get ripped as i want to start weight training and begin adding mass.

Answer

Hi Adam,

It is not easy to answer without knowing how old you are, how much you weight, your height and how much weight you have lost.

However, it we can be sure that this is not “baby fat”; only babies have baby fat, anybody who is no longer a baby is just overweight – sorry!

Luckily one of the best ways to lose excess fat is to use weight training, along with regular cardio workouts and adjusted diet.


So you plan:

  1. Start weight training today and workout three times per week.
  2. On days you are not weight training do 30-45 minutes of cardio exercise, such as swimming, cycling, running, rowing etc.
  3. Improve your diet by eliminating all junk food, excess sugar and control portions.

If you wish to provide some more information we should be able to offer some additional advice. As always, if you have any medical conditions, have not exercise in a long time or are suffering any unusual pain, speak to a doctor before embarking on a new fitness regime.

    Hi Motley i am 27 years old 5ft 8 and lost 3 stone and most of my life have been fat. Since joining gym i have lost weight however this has been a struggle for me over the last 5 years and find it very difficult to get lean and lose fat and my skin seems to be quite loose too. I’m 11 stone 8 and find it hard to lose fat as most of this is situated on my lower back, stomach and mainly on my chest. Would you be able to give me advice on how i can lose this stubborn fat and build muscle please. I really want to be lean but build mass too. Thank you

    Hi Adam, sounds like you just need to get a bit more strict with the diet to help lose the extra fat. What do you do at the gym? Start doing more weight training to help build extra muscle, this should help with appearance. For diet, swap bread for vegetables and fruits and eat more protein, less starchy carbs.
