A fatty or flabby arm is a condition which mars the physical appearance of a person. Even though that person has a beautiful figure, the fatty arms just destroy the whole look. Both women, as well as men, suffer from this issue.
You must have seen many people with leaner body structures but with unusual fatty arms in comparison to the body. Then here one question that comes to mind is that – what causes arm fat or fatty arms?
Causes of Arm Fat
Arm fat is generally caused due to the accumulation of excess fat in the arm area. The fat deposition in other parts of the body is easy to shed, but it is quite difficult to burn the excess fat in the arms. So the gradual deposition of fat in the arms leads to flabby arms.
The growing age is another reason of arm fat. After the 20s, our body tends to store more fat in various parts and the lean muscles start to decrease. So the fat accumulation becomes more than the lean muscles, one of the main causes of flabby arms.
Decreased metabolism rate is another reason of arm fat. The metabolism rate decreases with the growing age, which means burning fewer calories. And this condition ultimately leads to arm fat.
Lack of physical activities and not doing exercises regularly also leads to the fat accumulation in the body including the arms.
Tips to Prevent Arm Fat
It is rightly said that prevention is better than cure. So if you will be able to prevent the arm fat at the first place then it is well and good.
