Weight Loss vs Fat Loss

When the majority of people go on a diet they say they want to lose weight whilst pointing to the areas of their body with excessive fat… Or you get that person who has a frustratingly good figure yet they constantly saying they need to lose weight and you just wanna punch them in the face…

Both these people in the scenarios will go on a diet and lose weight and still will not be happy when they look in the mirror after the weight loss…
