Excess fat on your upper or lower back is unsightly, embarrassing and can seem overwhelming to get rid of. You're not alone, thousands of women have been in contact with me throughout my career with the same back fat problem. Here are a few simple ideas of how to lose back fat for women.
I'd love to tell you that there is some magic solution that will make just the frustrating back fat disappear instantly. But, the truth is that the only solution is to reduce your overall body fat to such a level that the ugly bulging tissue around your back is no longer a problem.
The good news is that there are some very simple ways to begin reducing body fat immediately.
Make a decision.
Before anything else, you need to decide that you are going to follow through with a plan to rid yourself of that excess back fat forever. Don't take this lightly, your success depends entirely on your commitment to getting started and following through. The reason that most people fail to reach their fitness goals is simply that they don't make the commitment to get it done.
What are you willing to do?
Will you engage in an intense exercise program?
Will you make drastic changes to your diet?
How much time can you commit to achieving your goal of losing the back fat?
Will you engage in group activities or do you want to do this alone?
Will you ask for professional help or do you already know what to do?
Develop a plan.
The answers to these questions will help you to establish a plan of action to follow.
It does not have to be terribly complex, but you do need to develop a plan for yourself and then follow through and do exactly what you've planned.
Your plan could be as simple as: I will cut out all foods containing high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils, and I will walk to work 4 days a week. If that's all you did, but you do it consistently, you will outperform many of your peers that are engaged in very complex fat loss plans.
Or you can do much more … You could hire a trainer to develop a full nutrition program and meet with him 4 days a week for intense physical training sessions followed up with lower intensity exercise on the 3 days a week you don't meet .
In any case, it's a personal process that you simply need to take action on quickly. Simple can be very effective when followed consistently, so you very well may already know enough to get started.
