Fat is bad. There is no differentiation as such that fat around your belly is bad, fat around your thighs is good or fat in your hips are great and the latest study proves this exactly. While eight years ago a reputed journal study projected that fat around the thighs, hips and bum helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, latest study proves otherwise. It shows that losing fat around these regions is linked to better cardiovascular health.
Now comes the dilemma whether people benefit from losing fat around the hips, bum and thighs or increase their risk of cardiovascular disease by doing so? While past studies leave us with few hints regarding how fat distribution affects cardiovascular health, the present study exactly dealt with this issue. Researchers analyzed glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and blood pressure levels and concluded that losing fat around the thighs, hips and buttocks was directly associated with increased benefits in heart health. The primary point to be considered here is that, weight loss in any region of the body (back or front, lean or fat, hip or thighs) is advantageous for cardiovascular health. The most interesting find in the study is that losing lean muscle around the hips, thighs and backside is not harmful.
Fat loss is the correct way to lose when compared to weight loss. For those of you who wonder what the difference is between the two, you can have a look at www.firsteatright.com for in-depth knowledge. Individuals can start exercising not worrying about muscle loss initially and lose weight. Once after losing a few kilograms, they can concentrate on core fat loss without muscle loss by increasing their exercise routine.

Obesity is one of the most widespread diseases in today’s world and every country suffers from this obesity epidemic.
