We’ve all heard the jokes way too many times now: "I need a spare tire. Can I borrow the one from around your tummy?" If this type of joke makes you start to suck your gut in, then maybe it’s about time you started to do something about your love handles.
There saint much to love about that fat deposit and why on earth would we want to love them? In most cases, being called fatso, pot belly, lardy and big boy does nothing for our self esteem. Make the commitment to do something about those love handles. It’s easier than you think…
1) Change your lifestyle.
Do some research and find out the best way to eat. Cut down on the fat, sugar and all high calorie foods. You don’t have to go on a starvation diet, just be aware of what you’re eating. Love handles are made of fat. Excess calories in your body turn into to fat. See where I am going with this? Cut down on the fast foods and try to eat incorporate more fruit and vegetables into your daily diet. There are many ways to do this. Like I said, do some research and find an eating plan you can live with.
2) Work those abs.
Yes, you may have a super solid six pack already but you’d never know. Why? Because it is hidden under the layers of gut fat!. Along with a good eating plan, sit ups and other strength training exercises will help by building muscle to replace that fat you’ll lose by eating right. Muscles themselves help to burn calories. Just keep that in mind.
3) Get sweaty.
Pull on some loose clothing and go for a 30 minute brisk walk. Or if you’re fitter, go for a run. And if that is not your thing, try cycling, swimming, football or any activity which will raise the heart rate and get you sweating for 30 minutes 3 – 4 times every week. And if you can do more, even better. Just don’t kill yourself.
4) Drink water
The easy one, but not many people drink enough water on a daily basis. Even if you don’t like the taste, get used to it. By drinking at least 8 glasses of water every single day, will help to reduce bloating and water retention. This will help reduce the bulges and quell hunger. It’s only water, but it will help shift those handles.
