Have her use MyFitnessPal to track her foods and have her record EVERYTHING that she eats and drink. You, as her friend (on the app) can go in and look at her food log and give her feedback on her eating (regularly). If she’s overweight/obese she just needs to lose weight and naturally the body will lose fat/weight where it stores it. However, you can not pin point where you want to lose weight. I think it’d be important for you to educate her on the myth that she can lose weight on just her arms. We’ve been taught that you can’t spot reduce, so educate her on it. Encourage her and guide her to eating healthier then the weight will come off.
I require all my clients who want to lose weight to keep a food journal. I use to look over their journal regularly and give them feedback. Now, my company has a little bit over 100 clients, so it’s too much for me to do it all.
Now, I pay one of my trainers over $350 per month to check food logs and assist clients on making better food choices. It has done wonders for my company. I recommend, all trainers use MyFitnessPal in some form for their clients. For the most part it’s just clients being aware of how much crap they’re eating. Naturally, they do better when they can see the junk that they record.
Hello Soumendra Pattanaik,
You want to make sure the client follows a healthy lifestyle so they can look and feel their best; do not compare to others. We all have our own genes which adds a delightful variety to our lives. Concentrate on getting the person to realize that the body will do what it can and wants according to the decisions made by the person. Good decisions equals good body. Great decisions equals great body; but, still do not compare to anyone else. Look at where the person comes from at the starting line and keep track of progress The best workout is what the client will stick with for the long haul.

Sounds like your client has an increased amount of fat cells in her arms which is genetically inclined as the other two stated. Increasing your clients overall daily energy expenditure can help shrink those fat cells in her arms. Also like the others stated diet is also a major factor. Increased energy expenditure and lowering calorie intake will keep your clients body burning those calories so extra fat is not stored in those fat cells in her arms. I would incorporate a lot of calisthenics in her sessions and long with bicep and tricep exercises. Also train the shoulders and back because those muscles attach to the arm as well especially to target the upper back part of her arm. Push ups, assisted pull ups, lateral and front raises, lat pulls, maybe incorporate some shadow boxing exercises, and of course bicep and tricep exercises.
