#1 Perform targeted exercises

Unsightly Arm Fat? Natural Remedies Can Help Tone & Shift That Stubborn Fat...

When you are thinking about losing weight you will need to target it from two angles – exercise and diet. With the exercise that you do, although any exercise will burn fat in general, it can also help to choose some exercises that specifically target the area that you’re trying to lose weight from – in this case your arms.

Push ups can be a great choice, and it has been shown that individuals who do this type of training during weight loss are more likely to see results in this key area.

There are other things that you can do such as weight lifting at the gym. If you’d prefer to lose weight in your own home then using your own bodyweight or resistance band exercises are great too – check out these 20 Resistance Band Exercises You Can Do At Home

#2 Drink plenty of water

If you have any interest at all in the diet and fitness world, then there is a chance that you will have read many times about just how important drinking can be to help us keep fit and healthy. The majority of us don’t drink anywhere near enough water on a daily basis, and for this reason many of us will be showing signs of dehydration – even though we might not actually recognise that to be the cause of our issues.

Dehydration is, of course, an issue within itself, but there has also been research to suggest that drinking more water can help with weight loss.  This works in two ways – firstly, water can make everything in our body work better, and this includes our metabolism. Secondly, drinking water can help us to feel full, so if you think that you are hungry and need a snack, having a glass of water could be enough to keep your cravings at bay until mealtimes.

#3 Drink Green Tea

There have been lots of suggested benefits for drinking green tea in the past, and lots of people choose to drink it thanks to its effect on anxiety. However, there is further research to suggest that it could actually have a positive effect on weight loss, too, and could help people to lose extra weight by providing a slight boost in metabolism.  It is incredibly easy to fit in a cup of green tea in the morning with your breakfast – so it makes sense to make the most of the fat burning effects that it could have.

#4 Ensure that you eat breakfast

When losing weight, lots of people simply try to cut back on the amount that they are eating, and this can include breakfast much of the time. However, research has shown that those who eat breakfast are more likely to be successful with their weight loss attempts.

#5 Ditch the sweets for mints

If you like to snack during the day, then you may often find yourself reaching for the sweet bag – however mints might be a better option. There has been research to show that eating mints can provide a spike in metabolism, meaning that your body will burn more fat for a short time than it would have done if you hadn’t eaten the mint. This is also great because sucking on mints can help to avoid the temptation of eating other things – so could save those valuable calories.


Ultimately, if you wish to get rid of your stubborn arm fat, then it is best to balance a fat burning diet with area-targeted exercises to get rid of the fat that you don’t like. The tips above are going to make a real difference to your weight loss experience, and this means that you can get those toned, fat-free arms that you’ve been wanting for ages!
