Spot reducing

Now that summer's coming, an increasing number of people have been coming up to me asking about how to reduce fat in certain problem areas.

The bad news is that you can't spot reduce! If you work a specific muscle until flames are shooting out of it, you will tone up the muscle, and you will lose fat. However, the fat you lose will not be specific to the area being worked out.

Yes, this stinks. I know.

For men, the last thing to go seems to be the love handles. I remember once seeing "Get Rid of Love Handles!" on the cover of a fitness magazine for men. (Finally, the answer to my prayers, I thought.) It was an article on liposuction.
