The purpose of this study was to determine whether physical activity, with and without lower body pressure, leads to increased regional fat loss in the lower extremities of overweight females. Eighty-six obese women with a female phenotype were randomly assigned into four groups: control group (C), diet only (D), diet plus exercise (DE) or diet, exercise and lower body pressure intervention (DEP). The three treatment groups followed the same diet, the two exercise groups (DE and DEP… 

Assessment of Girth and abdominal fat reduction in people using an abdominal slimming system

TLDR
The study statistically demonstrated that abdominal girth and abdominal fat can be selectively targeted by the ABSS system under conditions of not changing lifestyle and when combining with diet and exercise.

Pre-workout muscle vascularization and its effects on localized fat areas

TLDR
The objective of this essay is to prove how an adequate pre-workout muscle vascularization can have positive effects on the reduction of adipose tissue in less vascularized areas both in terms of time and effectiveness.

INTERMITTENT NEGATIVE PRESSURE THERAPY IN THE COMBINED TREATMENT OF PERIPHERAL LYMPHEDEMA.

TLDR
The study results indicate that the inclusion of intermittent negative pressure therapy into the CLyFT protocol was beneficial and further incorporation into other protocols should be investigated.

The Effect of a Slimming System Including a Lipolytic Cream and an Isometric Abdominal Exercise Regime and a Garment on Skin Temperature

TLDR
A single application of the cream, belt and exercise had long lasting effects on fat metabolism as measured by skin temperature, which showed the greater the increase in skin temperature due to the thicker fat layer altered by the lipolytic cream.

EFFECT OF WEIGHT LOSS TRAINING PROTOCOL USING TWO DIFFERENT TREADMILLS FOR OBESE INDIVIDUALS

TLDR
This research explored the relationship between musculoskeletal pain and weight loss, and the role that diet and physical activity play in the development of obesity.

The Effect of a Slimming System with a Lipolytic Cream on Body weight, Girth and Whole Body and Regional Fat Loss

A slimming system consisting of a garment, a lipolytic cream, and brief exercise was tested for either the tummy or the legs to see how they can alter body composition and girth. There were 151

Assessment of Girth and Abdominal Fat Reduc- tion in People Using an Abdominal Slimming

Four groups of subjects participated in a 30day randomized blinded study to measure the effects of an abdominal slimming system (lipolytic agent suspended in a cream, an abdominal belt and abdominal

Cellulite treatment: a comprehensive literature review

TLDR
It is still difficult to indicate an exclusive and effective single treatment for cellulite reduction, and the mean difference of clinical morphologic features and ultrastructural changes between the treated group and the controlled showed significant heterogeneity between studies.

EFFECT OF WEIGHT LOSS TRAINING PROTOCOL USING TWO DIFFERENT TREADMILLS FOR OBESE INDIVIDUALS by Kristi

TLDR
This book discusses obesity, musculoskeletal pain, and exercise guidelines for weight loss and its applications in the context of clinical practice.

Cellulite: Presentation and management

Cellulite is a common dermatological condition with a female preponderance, affecting up to 90% post‐pubertal females. It is characterized with dimpling and denting of the skin surface, giving it a

Physiological adaptations to a weight-loss dietary regimen and exercise programs in women.

TLDR
The data indicate that weight loss during moderate caloric restriction is not altered by inclusion of aerobic or aerobic+resistance exercise, but diet in conjunction with training can induce remarkable adaptations in aerobic capacity and muscular strength despite significant reductions in body mass.

Effect of calorie restriction with or without exercise on body composition and fat distribution.

TLDR
Exercise plays an equivalent role to CR in terms of energy balance; however, it can also improve aerobic fitness, which has other important cardiovascular and metabolic implications.

Regional body composition changes in women after 6 months of periodized physical training.

TLDR
The findings show the importance of considering regional body composition changes, rather than whole body changes alone when assessing the effects of a periodized physical training program.

The effects of aerobic conditioning and/or caloric restriction in overweight men and women.

TLDR
In both sexes, the increase in VO2max-BW in DE (25%) was significantly greater than for E (15%), D (11%), and C (0%), with differences between E and D nonsignificant, but increases in absoluteVO2max (1 X min-1) and VO2 max-fat-free weight were similar but significantly greater compared to D and C.

The independent and combined effects of 16 weeks of vigorous exercise and energy restriction on body mass and composition in free-living overweight men--a randomized controlled trial.

TLDR
It is concluded that in sedentary free-living overweight men, 16 weeks of energy restriction, but not vigorous intensity exercise, results in substantial reductions in body mass, LBM, and FM.

Subcutaneous fat alterations resulting from an upper-body resistance training program.

TLDR
Subcutaneous fat changes resulting from resistance training varied by gender and assessment technique, supporting the notion that spot reduction does not occur as a result of resistance training.

Regional Body Composition Changes Exhibit Opposing Effects on Coronary Heart Disease Risk Factors

TLDR
Regional body composition information is important for evaluating improvement of CHD risk factors during weight-reduction treatment for obesity; differential FTs had opposing effects on CHD Risk Factors during weight reduction in obese women.

Endurance training and GH administration in elderly women: effects on abdominal adipose tissue lipolysis.

TLDR
It is concluded that the changed lipid metabolism during exercise observed after Endurance training alone or after endurance training combined with recombinant human growth hormone administration is not due to alterations in subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue metabolism in elderly women.

Difference in segmental lean and fat mass components between pre- and postmenopausal women

TLDR
Upper body fat distribution in postmenopausal women may be more attributable to aging than to menopause, and the percentage of leg fat mass does not change with aging.

The Role of Diet and Exercise for the Maintenance of Fat-Free Mass and Resting Metabolic Rate During Weight Loss

TLDR
Results from diet intervention studies suggest spontaneous losses in bodyweight following low-fat diets, and current data on a reduction of the carbohydrate-to-protein ratio of the diet show promising outcomes.
