Many people are affected by areas of subcutaneous fat that lies just beneath the skin. This type of fat that is most often determined by pinching the skin, and is also quite stubborn in nature. Stubborn fat can be the cause of much frustration to the affected person, especially when a healthy lifestyle that includes following a balanced diet and a regular exercise regime is upheld. This type of fat, that is difficult to shift, is different to other kinds of fat that can build up in the body.
Subcutaneous fat is more stubborn than other types of fat found in the body - and female subcutaneous fat is more stubborn than male subcutaneous fat. Women are more likely to be affected in the lower part of their body, including: hips, thighs, stomach and buttocks; whereas excess fat in men sits around the lower abdomen - often referred to as love handles. It is due to the influences from hormones, such as oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone, that lead to these gender differences.
