Saddle bags, an oversized tummy, a butt that's too soft around the edges, and a pair of flabby arms. Do these sound just a little too familiar? Help is at hand.

Take action:
Regular exercise is the way to go, says Health24's FitnessDoc. Things like saddle bags and flabby tummies is the result of a high body fat that is distributed in specific areas. The answer is to focus on exercise that will reduce your body fat percentage. For this, cardiovascular exercise, such as running, walking, swimming or cycling, is best. Exercise four to five times a week, for a minimum of 30 to 45 minutes at a time. It's also ideal to work at a moderate to hard intensity, but for a longer duration. And, to maintain weight loss, it's important to do resistance training.
