My brother's got a weird issue. He's 6 feet tall and bulked up to 230 then cut down to 205 in a span of 5 months (he was moody as a broad) yet he's got this lingering fat covering his obliques, stomach and lower back. We both know about fitness and whatnot but how is it still possible to look the same in the stomach area now as he did 25 pounds heavier?.
people lose fat in different parts of the body at different rates during a cut. For most it's the stomach area that sticks around
There are a good deal of variables. Like CP said, some people hold fat in certain places more than others.
Weight loss can come in the form of losing fat or losing muscle or both. The best way to troubleshoot this is
Track body weight
That is how to find your answer
