Body Dilemma: Big Behind (Gluteofemoral Fat)
People with gluteofemoral fat have less blood flow to break down the fat in their buttocks, so their behinds function as a long-term fat-storage site.
Obstacles: The buttocks are not as responsive to weight loss as other areas.
Diet Solution: To reduce your backside, minimize processed foods high in saturated fats and salts, which can contribute to fat retention.
