Getting rid of arm fat (AKA Christian Mother arm)

Arm fat is a common issue, especially for some women after childbirth. It is often called ‘Christian mother’. Arm far is difficult to lose, and dieting alone would not combat arm fat. I have seen several people who lost weight but still had a lot of arm fat. Here are some tips on losing arm fat:


  1. Drink lots of water. Water keeps your skin hydrated, keeps you hydrated and increases your metabolism by flushing out toxins from the body. Remember if you exercise then you would definitely need more water for weight loss. Research done found that drinking at least 2 litres of water every day is needed to flush out toxins from the body.
  2. Push-ups: Push ups are very great exercises that help you burn your arm fat. They are very very good for arm fat burning. Alternatively, using your 5 kg dumbbells for the biceps and triceps would also be really helpful.
  3. Of course your diet needs to be in check. You need a calorie deficit to also help your body burn fat from its fat stores. Your arm fat is also one of the stores.
  4. Regular cardio exercise every day for at least 30 minutes per day.
