0:00 What to do when you can’t lose fat on the lower half of your body
0:58 Typically, you lose weight from the top of your body down
1:20 You will need to do exercises that target muscles in the lower half of your body
2:15 It could take much longer than you initially think for you to lose weight from your hips down
Someone asked me why they can’t lose fat in the lower half of their body, even though they’re on keto and intermittent fasting. It’s working, but there simply isn’t much weight loss in their legs, thighs, and butt.
When you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting, you’re targeting insulin. You’re fixing insulin resistance, which primarily has to do with all your belly fat. You should be seeing weigiht loss in your midsection. If you’re not, stay with it because the belly fat loss will happen.
You’ll hit a weight-loss plateau, because your muscle to fat ratio will change. You’ll get more muscle and less fat. Muscle weighs more than fat, so you probably won’t see the number on the scale change, but you’ll start to shrink.
Typically, weight loss will happen from the top down. But keto and intermittent fasting will only take you so far. You’ll have to add exercise into your program. The average person in their 40’s and older is dealing with a high fat to low muscle ratio. To shed fat on your lower half, do exercises that target your glutes, thighs, and hamstrings. And not just jogging on the treadmill, but plyometrics, slam balls with squatting, and specific leg exercises.
In other words, go on a muscle-building plan.
Be prepared for it to take much longer than you first think it will. It could take as long as two to three years. And if you’re looking at yourself every day, you might not see changes, and feel discouraged. I highly recommend measuring yourself. If you haven’t exercised for many years, this will slow your progress. But, you will progress! I don’t want you to give up and go back to a high-carb diet.
You will lose fat from your lower body; give it time, and you’ll experience the results.
