Nope, You Can't Lose Weight In Specific Body Parts

    When a workout promises that it'll shrink your belly, banish arm jiggle, or whittle your whatever... it's not being totally honest.

    No matter how many crunches you do, you won't lose your belly fat.

    And even if you do like a million leg lifts, your thighs aren't going to get any skinnier.

    That's because it's not possible to target fat loss in a particular area just by working out that area.

    Also worth noting: Your genetics play a really big role here.

    And no matter how much fat you do lose, you very likely won't be able to "sculpt" your body to look a specific way, Justice says. People come in all different shapes and sizes. Many people's bodies are not built to have a thigh gap, for instance, or a naturally flat belly. And that's completely OK and normal, and not at all something to feel bad about.

    In fact, maybe a better way to think about fitness and getting in shape is to think about how great it makes you feel.
