How to Lose Belly Fat


Slimming down is rarely as simple as people would like it to be. At the outset of the journey, many imagine that putting in the work will guarantee them equally distributed fat reduction, but the reality doesn’t always meet expectations.

Instead, people often get to the point where their results seem to plateau—where they just aren’t making as much progress as they were earlier on in the process. It’s not uncommon for people to struggle to lose fat in specific areas of the body. And one of the areas most notorious for holding onto stubborn fat is also one of the number one places we want to see results—the stomach.

That’s right; belly fat can be especially hard to get rid of, even with a healthy, balanced diet. Figuring out how to lose belly fat can be a highly personal process. The internet is saturated with tips and tricks for losing fat, but the problem with this is that what works for some people might not work for you.

A highly personal wellness and fitness journey requires a meticulously personalized approach. Read on to discover how to lose belly fat at Body By Your Clinic!

Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss

Most of the time, when people talk about weight loss, what they really mean is fat loss. The few exceptions to this would be professional athletes managing their weight to meet the requirements of their weight class. For most people, however, the main goal for “weight loss” is less about the weight and more about losing visible fat.

So why do we call it weight loss? The main reason for this is that people want and need a way to track their progress, and a scale is easy to use and generally affordable. But a scale can only tell you how much you weigh.

Weight can be an important measurement to keep track of, but it doesn’t provide nearly enough information. Measuring your progress in terms of pounds shed can be misleading and even dangerous in some cases. After all, losing weight is not the same as getting in shape or getting healthy.


If your main question is how to lose fat, or, more specifically, how to lose belly fat, a scale can only help you so much. If you were to only lose fat, then you could expect your weight to change accordingly. But if you’re getting the regular physical activity you need, or you’re trying to build muscle, then you might have trouble with tracking your progress in pounds.

Muscle weighs more than fat when you look at it in terms of volume. What that means is you could lose a significant amount of fat and gain a small to moderate amount of muscle only to find your weight hasn’t changed much.

If, on the other hand, you start eating less and don’t get any exercise, you might notice your weight drop faster because you’re losing fat and muscle at the same time. This is one of the situations where weight loss goals can lead to what look like successful results but negatively impact your health in the long run.

A Better Way to Track Fat Loss

At Body By Your Clinic, we use the Styku advanced body imaging system to give you the most accurate measurements possible, so you can track your progress and fine-tune your goals with precision.

In order to provide the best possible body measurements and body composition data, the Styku system takes 600 infrared images and millions of measurements in just over 30 seconds and combines them to create a near-perfect 3D rendering of your body (less than 1% error).

The Styku system can tell you far more about where you’re at and how to get to where you want to be than a simple scale ever could. It can also help you track your fitness and fat loss progress, so you no longer have to hope your treatment is working—it’ll show you exactly how much and where your results are taking shape.

Different Types of Fat

There are two main kinds of fat you should know about when you’re trying to figure out how to lose belly fat: adipose fat and visceral fat. Both kinds of fat contribute to the appearance of belly fat, but each kind can require a different approach.

Adipose Subcutaneous Tissue

Adipose fat, subcutaneous fat, or adipose subcutaneous tissue (AST) all refer to the pinchable fat between your muscles and your skin. This is the most visible kind of fat because it’s closest to the surface.

In the abdominal or belly area, adipose fat can be found between your skin and the muscles forming the abdominal wall.

Visceral Fat

Visceral fat, on the other hand, can be found surrounding your internal organs behind the abdominal wall. This type of fat is often associated with increased health risks and a variety of health conditions. The good news, however, is that it’s often easier to get rid of.

Discover How to Lose Belly Fat With Our Treatment Options

Body By Your Clinic is proud to offer a variety of treatment options to help you lose belly fat. For general fat loss, your wellness specialist might recommend a comprehensive medical weight loss plan. But for more localized fat loss, they might recommend a course of body sculpting treatments, like Emsculpt NEO, to specifically target fat in the stomach area.

Medical Weight Loss

Getting into shape—the shape you want—involves all kinds of factors and variables that can be difficult to keep track of without professional help. Many of our clients at Body By Your Clinic struggle to get the results they want and need until they get started with a medically managed comprehensive weight loss program.

Weight Loss Cosultation

As the go-to weight loss clinic in Dallas-Fort Worth and the surrounding areas, Body By Your Clinic is committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive care for the whole client. This means supporting the client with a plan that approaches fat loss from a variety of angles.

A weight loss plan at Body By Your Clinic can include:

  • Lifestyle and nutrition counseling
  • Body sculpting treatments, such as Emsculpt NEO
  • Pharmacological support with prescription treatments like semaglutide

As you can see, medical weight loss isn’t a single treatment, but rather a treatment approach that uses the best tools, technology, and information to deliver and maintain your best possible results.

Emsculpt NEO

Emsculpt NEO has forever changed the game when it comes to reducing stubborn belly fat. For clients within 15 to 30 pounds of their ideal weight, Emsculpt NEO can be the perfect solution for looking both slim and trim.

Using an innovative combination of HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) and RF (radiofrequency) technology, BTL Aesthetics’ Emsculpt NEO device enables our clients at Body By Your Clinic to reduce stubborn fat and tone muscle all at the same time.

Emsculpt Neo

During a standard 30-minute treatment session, the HIFEM technology stimulates 20,000 powerful muscle contractions. When targeting the belly area, this would be even more effective than doing 20,000 crunches in the same amount of time.

The RF component melts stubborn fat using radiofrequency-generated heat. The fat cells are permanently destroyed and naturally eliminated from the body. The heat generated by the RF component is often compared to the temperature of a hot stone massage.

Emsulpt NEO treatments can feel intense, but they’re not unpleasant. At the end of the day, you still get far greater benefits to the treatment area than you’d get from a workout targeting the same area—and you get to lie down comfortably for the duration of the session.

Additionally, the Emsculpt device is also adjustable. Each treatment session can be adjusted according to your individual treatment goals and level of comfort.

It can take 2 to 4 weeks after your last treatment session to start noticing visible improvements. After completing a full course of Emsculpt NEO body sculpting treatments, some clients can reduce the treated fat by up to 30% and increase muscle mass in the treatment area by up to 25%.
