    I do HIIT videos a few times a week, and toning exercises too, and no matter how much weight i lose/how flat my stomach gets (it's not very flat haha), my love handles (hip fat and lower back fat), just never shift. I eat well too. What do I do, it's getting me down so much

    It could just be that your clothes are too small. Or, you are imagining your "love handles" to be bigger than they are. Everyone has love handles to some extent when they wear tight clothes, but they tend to look bigger to your own eyes than everyone else's. Assuming that you are a healthy weight, I wouldn't worry. Otherwise, that is why Spanx exists.

    Its a genetic predisposition to where you store fat. To get fully rid of them, you've got to lose weight. However, whether or not that is a healthy preposition is dependent on your height and current weight

    My issue isn't when I have clothes on, but when I'm naked - it's hard to explain, but like where my hip bones are, it goes in, but above and under it there are bulges, almost like a number 3, and that's what gets me down

    I'm already on 1400 calories a day, if I restrict anymore I'll be not having enough calories in my body, and it risks me going back to eating disorder behaviours

    Hmm well your BMI puts you at a healthy weight, so I'm inclined to say that you are imagining it to be worse than it is (not that I am trying to belittle your problems). The only thing I can recommend would be to do some sort of ab workout.

    Eat the recommended per day, but just burn 2100 calories

    Just stay at a moderate 500 cal deficit, you can't choose where you lose fat from but if you stay at a deficit the love handles will eventually go
