    Hello, i would like to reduce facial fat, since i have a lot of it, im not fat overall, but just would like to hear some tips to improve this aspect.
    So aside from doing aerobic exercice to burn overall fat, what more i can do to burn it locally? (Any exercise, drink plenty of water, etc...?)
    And btw, how can i burn fat more efficiently doing aerobics?
    Thanks

    The main thing here is to lower estrogen from the conversion of test to estrogen.

    I’m not sure where you are based but there is a supplement called Alchemy by Hydrapharm which is well researched and has worked tremendously well for me (however, note that it will boost testosterone which you may not want if you’re on HairLossTalk.com...).

    This is the item I mean anyway https://www.predatornutrition.com/estrogen-blockers/hydrapharm/alchemy.html

    What’s your current body fat percentage?

    A lot of it has to do with your bone structure. My face doesn’t appear “defined” until about 15%...probably lower. It’s different for everyone..

    If I were you I’d just continue with aerobic exercise, healthy eating habits and also lift.

    The spot reduction of fat isn’t possible, so just focus on losing weight overall and you’ll see what you’re working with. Is 22% the thinnest you’ve been?

    Losing fat on the face has the potential of leaving a more saggy, wrinkled appearance of the skin depending on it's physical make up (connective tissue, fibroblast, fibroelastic, collagen content), underlying bone structure, and age. In any case, selective loss is nearly an impossibility.

    Cardio first thing in the morning in a fasted state. You burn greater fats stores this way.

    Good point. I’ve never noticed a difference when doing cardio fasted vs not but your post made me think about something...

    OP, consider adding HIIT to your aerobic routine if you haven’t already. Unsure what your current level of training entails but HIIT has definitely helped me cut weight in the past.

    Hiit or muay thaï are what I have found working best to lose weight. It really burns whenI do muay thai training.
    Also, try to limitate water retention in your face. Wine (especially white), salt, minoxidil all cause water retention (bloated face). You can actually exercise your face too, like facial yoga. It can contribute to define chin more for instance.

    That's why one needs to keep eating almonds, avocado and non cooked oil while dieting.

    The only selective fat loss that's possible is that of visceral fat versus subcutaneous fat.

    Are you a man or a woman?

    That's not the case here. To lose face fat you'll have to lose fat everywhere, maybe go from 22% bf to 12% bf.

    I recommend high intensity interval training, low carb, no snacking, intermittent fasting.

    For foods emphasize vegetables, fatty fruits like coconuts avocados and olives, seeds, nuts, unprocessed meats including fatty meats like steak, eggs, high fat unflavoured yogurt.

    High intensity interval training.
    Google tabata workout method too. Very effective. It's used in cross fit.

    Strength training and HIIT are the best forms of exercise for burning calories. Also, the more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn while inactive. You want to put your body in a constant metabolic state

    You say you've always had facial fat so idk, but you aren't doing yourself any favors by being at 22% body fat. For a male, you want to be at 12% or less ideally. 12% is good, <10% for very chiseled face

    I am a male. I do fastings on the morning but i'm not training just aerobics, ill look into Hiit, ty guys
    I have a pretty fast metabolism, i mean i can eat a shit ton of food during the day and dont get fat. And even one year ago i was studying to do the exams to enter univeristy, i had so little free time that i didnt ate as much as i used to do, so i lost 7kg in two weeks as a result

    When you lose 7 kg in 2 weeks -- and I do it regularly, it's mostly water. For a lot of people water weight can fluctuate downward by up to 15 lbs.

    Are you francophone?

    I think that it's a good idea to reduce body fat when on propecia, but it's not proven.
