I want to lose fat in one area on my body; is it possible?

The idea of being able to lose fat in a particular area of the body by doing exercises in that area is called “spot reduction,” and it is a myth. We can strengthen and increase muscle in one area; however, fat comes off throughout the body differently for each person. You can control the fact that your body fat percentage is decreasing, but you have no control over where that fat comes from. The good news is that as your body fat percentage decreases, you get closer to losing fat in the area where you want to lose it. Products that help increase fat utilization/burning in the body (like Matcha X and Unimate) can be helpful.
