The body consists of different types of fat of which Subcutaneous fat is the toughest to burn. This is the kind of fat that is around the lower stomach and hips. This type of fat is stubborn and almost impossible to lose. To effectively lose Subcutaneous fat, macronutrition, calorie deficit and strength training should be a part of your daily routine.

Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

Some areas on your body lose fat quickly, while others stay soft and plump. You feel like you’re doing everything right, but those areas never seem to get lean. To lose fat, you need to burn more calories than you eat. This creates an energy imbalance, or calorie deficit, which forces your body to tap into its own energy stores. The body tends to get rid of different kinds of fat in a predictable order. Your body has four kinds of fat.

Types of Body Fat:

Essential Body Fat:

This is the fat that makes up your brain and the myelin sheath around your nerves. It also cushions many of your internal organs. You cannot get rid of this fat even if you wanted to.

Visceral Fat:

This fat surrounds your internal organs, like the intestines. Luckily, visceral fat gets a lot of blood flow, and it keeps releasing stored fat in the presence of insulin. Visceral fat tends to disappear quickly

Brown Adipose Tissue:

Also known as “BAT,” brown adipose tissue is a kind of fat that burns triglycerides to produce heat. Its main job is to help your body maintain a healthy temperature. However Brown adipose tissue is too small to worry about

Subcutaneous Fat:

Subcutaneous fat is the fat that’s under your skin. (“Sub” = under, “cutaneous” = skin).This is the kind of fat that covers your abs. About 40-60 percent of your total fat is stored under your skin, so getting rid of it makes a big impact on your appearance. It is patches of subcutaneous fat that remain stubborn, despite your best efforts. The leaner you get, the harder it becomes to lose stubborn fat.

Basically, the only truly well supported methods for getting rid of stubborn body are a calorie deficit, proper macro nutrition, strength training, and patience.
