No one wants a fatty and flabby arm. It mars the physical appearance of a person. No matter how beautiful a person’s figure is, the fatty arms just destroy the whole look. Both women, as well as men, suffer from this problem. You might have seen people with leaner body figure but very unusual flabby arms as compared to their body. It is generally caused due to the accumulation of excess fat in the arm area. The fat deposition is easier to shed in other parts of the body, but with the fat in arms, it takes a lot of time. The gradual deposition of fat causes the arm to look flabby. Another reason for arm fat is growing age also. After the 20s, our body tends to store more fat in different parts due to which the lean muscles start to decrease. So, the accumulation of fat is more. Sometimes, lack of physical work and not doing exercise also lead to the collection of fat in the body including arms.
