Surprisingly, a key element to losing butt fat is eating carbs. Because your butt is prone to storing fat, incorporating complex carbohydrates will be helpful. They break down slowly, giving you a steady stream of energy without storing fat. So if you add foods like whole grains and pasta to your diet, while simultaneously keeping your fat intake low, you’ll start to see results. Make sure to keep your diet restricted to no more than 275 grams of carbs, 150 grams of protein, and 34 grams of fat.
