I think that one can make a convincing argument for spot reduction in a certain context. Namely the very short term. There is that Danish study on leg extensions that determined that muscle will source fat locally during exercise. However it did not examine its long term effectiveness. It is conceivable that those local fat cells will have a higher insulin sensitivity and will be the first place that fat is deposited afterwards. Obviously most people are seeking results that last longer than 30 minutes.
I am not 100% convinced that spot reduction is not achievable, I just think that one is better off sticking to an overall fat loss plan rather than looking for shortcuts that cost a lot, may not work, or if they do, are only temporary.

Here is my logic on the idea. If someone has lovehandles they are obviously over weight, maybe just slightly. So why would one want to just reduce their love handles when they need to shed fat everywhere. I have never seen someone with lovehandles and a well defined back at the same time. I know that for many lovehandles are the first place fat goes and the last place it comes off, but still fat has to be somewhat distributed around most of the body. No wonder these supplement companies make a killing, people always want the easy way out of a fairly simple problem. I'm not referring to you guys just alot of people in general.

Diet is the key. Post up your diet. I know you said it is clean, but there may be improvements that can help you with your progress.
