Losing weight is hard, and keeping it off is even harder. . I've tried ,  (yes, it includes pizza), and investigating . But through tons of research (and trial and error), I've learned fat loss is never as simple as calories in versus calories out. There area tonof moving parts when it comes to losing weight successfully. Dr. Mitchell Chasin, the founder of Reflections Center for Skin and Body, explains, "Along with diet, exercise, and any cosmetic treatments, there's managing motivation levels, building your willpower muscles, and overcoming hormonal imbalances and genetic predispositions, to name a few."

Chasin continues, "One of the topics we don’t see enough conversation about is thedifferent typesof fat, and how your strategies for fat loss need to vary based on which fat you’re targeting." Doing so will help you choose the correct strategy—which means faster and easier fat loss, and more success when it comes to maintaining. 

Below, we delve a little deeper into each type of fat and the best ways to keep them off—for good.Whether you're interested in surgical options (no judgement), nonsurgical methods, or targeted diet and exercise, we've got you covered. 

"Fluffy fat is soft and jiggles easily. Female hormones tell our bodies to accumulate this kind of subcutaneous (below the skin, above the muscle) fat much more readily than men, and it's typically found on women's stomachs, hips, thighs, and/or backs of the arms," says Chasin.

"This kind of fat is soft and rounded, and very lightweight, so when you lose fluffy fat, you can't always rely on the scale to measure that loss, but because it's so voluminous, you'll notice you're fitting into smaller clothes."

"But, he adds, "because our hormones tell our bodies to hold onto this type of fat (in case we become pregnant and need the extra energy), it can be really difficult to shed that last bit of fluffy fat, especially on the abdomen, hips, and thighs. If you're working out hard but not looking cut or toned, fluffy fat is likely to blame."

If you're looking for a surgical option…

"The best choice for a toned look, sans fluffy fat, is laser liposuction," recommends Chasin. "During laser liposuction, a laser liquefies the fat before it's suctioned out, making it easy to remove that layer of squishy fat and reveal your hard-won muscles."

If you're looking for a nonsurgical option…

"SculpSure, a noninvasive laser treatment, does an excellent job of permanently removing fluffy fat," Chasin explained. "SculpSure works by heating fat cells just beyond their limit, causing them to die and be permanently removed by the body's natural metabolism."

If you're looking for a targeted workout…

"Since this fat is very much associated with hormones, the best way to get rid of it is to cut down on sugar consumption," says Brooke Alpert, a well-known fitness expert. "Specifically, liquid sugar in the form of soda, juice, and alcohol. While you can do all the sit-ups you want, the best bet to really banish this fat is to do a high-intensity interval training to really burn this subcutaneous fat."

Professional dancer, Pilates instructor, and fitness expert Cindy Leos suggests taking CLA supplements, as they aid in losing body fat.

These supplements can help reduce body fat deposits and improve immune function.

Fibrous fat is the tougher version of subcutaneous fat and often forms set-in rolls. You can still pinch fibrous fat, but it's tougher and doesn't squish the way fluffy fat does. The perfect example of fibrous fat is the rolls that form around your bra (especially when the roll remains after the bra is gone). Sometimes fluffy fat becomes fibrous, due to the constant pressure of ill-fitting clothes, and sometimes the area was fibrous before the fat accumulated. Whatever the case, fibrous fat is less easily removed than fluffy fat, because the fibres that form around and between those fat cells hold it in place and make it harder for your body to use that fat for energy. So, it's typically the very last fat that would get burned by your body's natural processes.

If you're looking for a surgical option…

Again, Chasin says, "Laser liposuction offers the easiest and most complete removal of this type of fat, and because the laser will release those fibrous bands, any fat you do accumulate in the same place afterwards would likely be fluffy fat, which is easier to lose naturally."

If you're looking for a nonsurgical option…

"CoolSculpting works the best for this type of fat. Because fibrous fat tends to accumulate in rolls, CoolSculpting's unique contour applicator allows us to attack the roll of fat from all angles, for a very effective treatment," says Chasin.

If you're looking for a targeted workout…

"Any type of weight loss will help in this department, but this is where building muscle while losing fat is the best for a solution," suggests Alpert. "This, sadly, is also the type of fat that will often need additional help." Try eliminating processed foods and upping your workouts to one more day a week.

First of all, do you know 80% of women have cellulite? So the next time you feel bad about yours, remember that fact. It's something we all deal with at some point or another. But if you're self-conscious about it, I get that too. According to Chasin, cellulite happens when fat gets trapped in the bottom layers of the skin—and becomes worse as we age when our skin begins to thin. But it's important to note that the appearance of your cellulite has more to do with hormones and genetics than age. "While some women can lose cellulite by losing weight, that's not the case for everyone," says Chasin.

If you're looking for a surgical option…

"Cellulaze is a revolutionary treatment that addresses all three causes of cellulite: fat within the skin, fibrous bands that create dimples, and thinned skin," Chasin says. "Using a laser to thicken and tighten the skin, release the fibres that pull in deep dimples, and melting fat bulges trapped in the skin, this treatment creates lasting smoothness."

If you're looking for a nonsurgical option…

You can achieve a reduction in cellulite using a combination of noninvasive procedures as well. Chasin's favourite is SculpSure and Exillis. "SculpSure is a noninvasive fat-melting laser that reduces fat one to three centimetres below the skin's surface, perfect for fat trapped in the skin's lower layers. Exillis is a radiofrequency treatment that tightens and tones skin, for a smoother appearance."

If you're looking for a targeted workout…

"Cellulite is a tough one," agrees Alpert. "Sometimes losing weight can be beneficial, but other times it can almost make it appear worse. For my clients complaining about cellulite, I suggest they go on a low-sugar diet, as excess sugar in the body and can compromise the skin's structural support system, worsening the appearance of cellulite. I also recommend a diet high in vitamin C to promote the production of collagen. (I love Reserveage's Ultra Cllagen Booster, £41.) Muscle-building workouts with moderate weights are great too." Applying cream with caffeine can also help to tone and smooth your skin.

A potent blend of orange peel oil, jasmine, and caffeine, this formula smooths, firms, and moisturises to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It even comes with a massaging applicator to increase circulation and help contour your body.

Firm fat (also known as visceral fat) is different from the three other types, as it lives below the muscles, surrounding your internal organs in your abdomen. Because it's located behind a thick muscle wall, this type of fat feels firm, not soft or pinchable.

"Visceral fat is a problem that has to be tackled with lifestyle changealone, because there aren't currently any tools in the cosmetic surgeon's arsenal to help reduce this kind of fat," Chasin asserts. However, the good news is that this kind of fat responds faster to lifestyle changes than the others. Here are few ways you speed up your firm fat loss…

1. Get more sleep.

"A 2010 study published in the journal Sleep concluded that individuals who slept less than six hours a night experienced a 32% gain in visceral fat over five years," reports Chasin.

2. Combine exercise and diet change to make a bigger impact.

"Combining diet and exercise helps with your efforts exponentially when it comes to visceral body fat. Low-carb diets have been shown to be particularly effective, but you'll want to talk to your doctor before you take on a new fitness routine," Chasin recommends. Alpert agrees: "Add green tea to your diet, as the antioxidants are known to help promote belly-fat loss."

3. Stick with it.

"For every 10% of overall weight loss, you lose 30% of your visceral fat," explains Chasin. "So sticking with a program can pay off quickly!"
