How To Get Rid Of "Flabby Parts"

Have you got a problem area that you want to change the shape/size of? I get questions like this everyday. Luckily for you there's one answer to all of them

Ben, how do I;

"Get rid of my belly fat?"

"Get rid of my love handles?"

"Lose the bingo wings?"

"Budge the muffin top"

"lose 10lbs"

"Drop a dress size"

Back fat, thigh fat, double chins, fat around the hip

Whatever or wherever your problem area there's one simple fix:

You need to switch what your body is using as fuel

In other words you need to use the stored fat (the muffin top, belly fat etc) to fuel your day

Let me explain

Energy In Vs. Energy Out

Think of the food you eat like firewood and your stomach like a fireplace

Firewood comes in and is burnt to create energy which we use to move and live

If we have too much firewood coming in, our bodies place the surplus in "storage" which we refer to as fat

Now if our bodies are not receiving enough firewood it has to find the fuel from else where. So where does it find it?

The wood storage - our fat cells!

To reduce your body fat, muffin top, auntie arms, love handles or wherever your problem area might be - you have to consume less or increase the amount your body is burning

These are the only 2 options

When I receive questions like "How do I get rid of my muffin top?" - I think people are expecting me to show them a super-advanced ab exercise that's designed to obliterate "muffin" fat

When really the answer boils down to moving more and consuming better fuel

So I encourage you to shift your focus to reducing your overall body fat % instead

Do this and I promise your problem area will slowly vanish

Your Body Type And Fat Storage

It's important that you understand that every single person will store fat slightly differently

Males tend to store weight more on their stomachs while females tend to store it more on their under arm (triceps) and thighs

So please don't compare yourself or feel that you've doing something wrong if your fat stores are positioned differently to your friends or family

Muffin tops, love handles, bingo wings, or whatever you want to call them are simply an excess of fat that your body has decided to store there

Your genetics, hormones and body type dictate where those fat cells are stored

Can Exercise Help?

Absolutely. By moving more your body will require more energy and therefore burn more


You can't target fat with resistance exercises

People often ask me which exercises are best for reducing their belly fat
