Women naturally have a higher percentage of fat than men. During the adolescent growth spurt, the rate of fat increases in girls at almost twice the rate it does in boys, with the body producing cells that are larger and fatter. The theory is that women are built with an "extra reserve" to support them as nursing mothers, but this genetic code now creates problems for healthy women in the modern age.
As the years pass, the skin becomes thinner and less flexible, and the body’s puffed-up fat cells begin to show and appear unsightly, with a "cottage cheese" appearance. When fighting body fat around the waist, hips and thighs, due to the genetic makeup of the female body, it can be almost impossible to fully resolve. That’s when modern technology can lend a hand, improving on what nature gave you.
Tummies and Thighs
Many people are plagued by tummy fat, and unwanted fat on the thighs. Men tend to store fat on the in the abdominal region, while women often have unwanted fat from tummy to thighs, but every person is different.
Fat is necessary for life; it provides energy, stores vitamins, and is a component of cell membranes. That doesn’t mean that it can’t get in the way, affecting your self-confidence and impacting ability to wear certain clothing styles with confidence.
