Have you ever noticed that certain areas of your body get leaner quicker than others, and that some fat just refuses to go away? Are you in a constant battle to lose your 'love handles'?

The quest to shed stubborn fat continues to frustrate many. It's not uncommon for an individual to struggle to change a specific part of their body. For many males, this is the lower part of the stomach and obliques. For females, problem areas include the belly, thighs, hips, and butt.

So, why does fat in some areas seem impossible to lose? Fat cells have two types of receptors: alpha- and beta-receptors. To keep this simple, beta-receptors speed up fat mobilization, whereas alpha-receptors hinder it.

To even further simplify this -  fat that is easy to lose has more beta-receptors than alpha, and the fat that is hard to lose has more alpha-receptors than beta! So, if that is the science behind the stubborn fat, and what is the science of defeating it?

As you may have already guessed, stubborn fat regions have much higher alpha-2 receptors, compared to beta-2 receptors. The key to burning stubborn fat is to inhibit alpha-2 receptors, while activating beta-2 receptors. But here’s the dilemma - both alpha-2 and beta-2 receptors accept the same key.

In this case the “key” is the hormone catecholamines. Catecholamines are your fight or flight hormones, which are produced in response to any kind of stress.

For our purposes, we’re only interested in stress that we can induce... which is EXERCISE!

Although technically, all exercise produces catecholamines, the most effective is short high intensity exercises (HIIT). The more intense the exercise, the greater the amount of catecholamines produced!

Can we inhibit the alpha-2 receptors while still keeping the beta-2 receptors active?

Yes - The answer is maintaining optimal low insulin levels (in terms of burning stubborn fat) by adhering to a low carb diet, or by intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting has the same effect, with experts recommending somewhere between 12-18 hours as best for burning stubborn fat (this method naturally produces catecholamines as well).
