Health Tips

Spot reduction, the targeted removal of fat in a specific area, is a common myth that may people are unaware of. The loss of fat occurs due to more calories being burned then consumed. In short you can do as many crunches or sit-ups as you want but not lose your "spare tire"; you have to burn calories by other means. Fat loss occurs evenly throughout the body.
