The body is built to survive. Regardless of what you do to the organism, it always reacts by activating its survival mechanisms. When a person supplies his or her body with more energy than needed, the excess is stored as fat cells for later use. After all, you never know when you will have to play hunger games.
The stored fat has to be distributed in a way that doesn’t disturb the normal function of every organ, muscle and joint.
What’s the point of having all that extra energy when you can’t move?
So, where is the best place to store fat? Around the midsection and the hips, of course.
The face, on the other hand, is the last place where fat is stored, and the first place from where fat is lost. The body would do everything to postpone the experience of having a brutally fat face. However, there’s only so much that can be done.
How to get rid of face fat?
The best way to get rid of face fat is to just lose weight. There are no special exercises or miracle drugs that will target specifically the fat cells in your face. There’s no such thing as spot reduction, especially when it comes to facial fat.
The best way to lose body fat is through diet and exercise. By diet, I don’t mean starvation – just a reduction of calories and improvement of your food choices. That’s the most important part. Cardio is not needed. People don’t get a fat face because they don’t do cardio. It’s because of McDonald’s. Are you loving it?
What about water retention?
An additional factor that contributes to the assembly of a fat face is water retention. Unless there’s a specific problem water retention is usually due to a high consumption of foods rich in carbohydrates. If you start a low carb high fat diet, you will lose some water weight.
Diuretics are not recommended and can be potentially dangerous to your health. Dehydration is not your friend.
