The 3 Different Types of Fat and How to Lose Them

Hollywood films and fitness magazines have been making a paradigm shift from featuring only beautiful and sexy models to now also include fun-loving fat bodies.

It’s not at all so much of an issue cosmetically unlike before. But, the real problem is that fat, if not worked off your body by diet and exercise, can hinder your body from functioning at its best.

So, in this article, we’ll be looking at the different types of fat and how you can lose them. We’ll be making it short and simple so that it can be understood easily.

Ready? Let’s start!

1) Fluffy Fat

Fluffy Fat

Fluffy fat a.k.a. subcutaneous fat is the fat sitting just underneath your skin. It’s soft and pinchy and serves to warm your body, protect your muscles and bones, and store energy.

Women, by nature, tend to develop more fluffy fat than men. The areas where it builds up are over the triceps, hips, thighs, and stomach.

While fluffy fat is an essential aspect of a body, having too much of it isn’t good for your health. It increases your risk of heart disease and stroke, or its contributing factors like high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

How to Get Rid of Fluffy Fat

There are a few ways you can lose the burdening fluffy fat.

It can be done through laser liposuction surgery which will melt away the fat and suction it out. Its downside is the fat will make a comeback if you don’t keep up your new healthy habits.

A safer non-invasive laser procedure, SculpSure, is another great method that’s recommended by the FDA. Its agenda is to burn fat cells and allow them to be removed by your body naturally.

Also, the fat can be removed and muscles can be toned with interval training. Interval training is an effective workout whereby you alternate the intensity or pace of the workout for each given time limit.

2) Fibrous Fat

Fibrous Fat

Deeper than the subcutaneous fat is the fibrous fat. Its fat cells are stiffer and smaller than fluffy fat and are housed inside a shell in the body.

This fat is visible in areas that get movement or pressure, such as in the pectorals, arms, knees, and outer thighs. It is a result of subcutaneous fat secreting fibres if a person gains weight.

Because this fibre forms around and secures the fat cells inside, they are harder to be used or burned up by the body.

How to Get Rid of Fibrous Fat

If you’re going for a surgical method, laser liposuction is recommended by doctors since it can thoroughly remove the fat.

Not only that, but it removes more percentage of body fat and gives better-looking skin after the surgery.

If you are hesitant with the previous method, perhaps you may want to try CoolSculpting. It’s proven and non-invasive in which rolls of fat can be optimally cooled and suctioned from any angle.

As for working it out, you would have to work a lot harder and longer to trim off fibrous fat. It can be any exercise that lets you build muscles and reduce your fat.

3) Cellulite


Cellulite is the dimples forming on the skin surface, mostly under the buttocks or on the hip. But the marks can also appear on the abdomen, breasts, and upper arms.

Age is one factor of cellulite, but those that influence your skin more concern your hormones and genetics.

Don’t worry, though, if you have cellulite on your body. Around 80 to 90 per cent of women actually have it based on this scientific review.

How to Get Rid of Cellulite

Cellulaze is the chosen treatment for evident cellulite on the body. It works three-fold by tightening and thickening the skin, taking out fat, and of course, remove the fibres that create dimples.

There are side effects after the procedure, but it’s only minimal. What’s more, patients who had undergone this treatment were very satisfied with the result on their bodies as all the cellulite was removed for them.
