Default Where do we lose fat first?

I just found this blog: http://www.diet-blog.com/06/fat_dist..._reduction.php

and it was a great read about where we lose fat first. One thing I didn't know:

Quote:
During weight loss, the following trends have been observed:

- Obese men tend to lose more visceral (internal) fat while obese women lose more subcutaneous fat (src).
- Exercise seems to result in more subcutaneous fat loss. Diet alone results in more visceral fat loss (and less surface fat loss) (src). This explains how you can lose weight - but not necessarily have any radical change in appearance.
