    Liposuction?

    hahah this.

    also +1ing the people who mentioned weight training, you cannot spot reduce (without liposuction) but you can add muscle to a specific area which can improve the look of that area and make it appear leaner.

    How is the statement that strength training can significantly change your appearance woo-worthy? :D

    No, it's not spot reducing (in terms of losing fat there), but it can tighten up the appearance. That's controversial?

    I wouldn't get too put out about being woo'd half of MFP thinks it means woohoo.

    Oh! :D

    Wow, I have 144, I'm extra woo-ful. To be fair, I have posted a lot in threads about the woo button, where we all prove it's silly by wooing all the other posts in the thread :grimace:

    Ha! I might get jealous as my woo factor is rapidly approaching Diane's!!! :cold_sweat:

    You can try a little experiment to contradict it yourself.
    Step 1: Try whatever method/product that you find that says you CAN spot reduce.
    Step 2: Realize that it isn't spot reducing (overall reduction =/= spot reduction)
    Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you're convinced.

    This may or may not work.

    Odds are some people are going to lose weight "just where they want to" because that's where the weight comes off first.....for them. It could be they were doing zumba, or strength training, or even "prancercizing." That thing is going to be the solution to everyone else's problems.
