Dear Fiona
Because the female fat depots are situated in the breasts, thighs and buttocks, these would theoretically be the areas with the largest fat deposits and thus also the areas where one would except the greatest weight loss. However, what often happens is that you lose weight all over the body including areas which you actually don't want to reduce such as the face.
