    Losing overall bf% but stomach pouch doesn't budge

    To make it short,

    Been seriously training for over a year, but overall around 5 years with breaks.

    Seeing some nice progress on my legs and upper body, definition is coming along slowly but nicely so super glad about that one but the stomach pouch seriously doesnt want to budge and has always been the main problem. Diet is pretty much clean with high protein moderate carb and low fat.

    I know its a problematic area for women and my hormones havent been steady lately either.



    Just been thinking if perhaps it is time to try out Clen and see how i improve? Very fearful to go to a higher calorie deficit naturally and risk losing muscle which has happened before.

    might want to take another look at your diet and tweak it as needed, add some cardio, and hit those fukkin stubborn abs every day!

    Can you post a pic of whats going on ?

    Wondering if the bulge is fat over the abs or undigested food under the muscles.
    I use ........ but don't tell anyone, it will ruin my image.

    Just keep losing BF.

    I'm in the same boat: quads are defined with visible veins, arms look cut but my stomach pouch and chest fat are still prominent. The problem areas are the first to gain fat and the last to lose it.

    This area is very commonly the last fat to go. As stated above, just keep concentrating on losing bf and it will eventually come off.
    Don't listen to me. I make things up as I go.

    Yohimbine+fasted low intensity cardio might be the extra kick you're looking for. It helps to target those stubborn fat areas. P. S low fat diet for women is a bad idea I'd suggest you to up your fats and lower your carbs.

    Just be patient it will be the last to come off. In fact once you see that spot start to shrink your motivation will go thru the roof.

    Yohimbine blocks the a2 receptor, this should theoretically make the fat lose its stubbornness and become easier to burn.

    The bad news:

    You're body has places where it wants to store fat. Some places seem more important then others and therefore it's the first place excess fat goes and the last place it will be taken from.

    The good new:

    You're probably real close to the point where it can no longer afford to reduce the other areas and that stubborn spot is about to fall.
