Love handles are those pesky annoying fat rolls that hanging off of your side that you just can’t get rid of. You try and try, but it seems that no matter what you do, they’re still there.
So is it all in vain? Not quite, so here are some options to help battle those love handles.
How To Eliminate Love Handles
1. No Processed Food
This is a must if you want to get rid of those love handles. Processed foods are sugary, filled with bad carbs, and are just plain fattening. Cutting these out is the first step in getting rid of love handles.
2. No Alcohol
Booze is filled with sugars and calories. If you are a regular drinker, chances are, cutting alcohol out will be enough to see a huge change in your battle against love handles.
Just imagine how many calories you consume on an average Saturday night diet of red bull and vodkas.
3. Keep The Carbs
Yes, you read that right. Don’t eliminate the carbs all together, keep healthy carbs like oats and sweet potatoes. Your body needs energy and it gets it from carbs.
If you deprive it of carbs, you won’t be doing yourself any favors. Your body has to have certain conditions met before it starts burning fat, so cutting out carbs is not the answer.
going after the fat cells is the last thing your body does.
4. Drink Plenty of Water
Being hydrated is extremely important to your body. If your body is not getting enough water, it will even try to trick your brain that you are hungry.
Even if you are not hungry, it will send signals it that you are to your brain.
5. Eat Lots of Protein
Beef, tuna, chicken, egg whites, shrimp, and protein powders…the list goes on. The point is protein is great for building muscle and burning fat.
So stock up on protein-rich foods and you will see fat slowly start to go away
6. Eat Vegetables
Vegetables like spinach, kale, and broccoli are filled with minerals and proteins that help your body get rid of fat. Add them to your daily diet to feel fuller and eat less.
7. Sleep More
Regular sleep cycles put your body on a consistent schedule and it helps eliminate stress and promote weight loss.
So get that sleeping pattern down to a “T” and try getting at least six to seven hours of sleep per night.
8. Don’t Skip Meals
People tend to believe that if they skip a breakfast or dinner that somehow that will translate into weight loss.
If your body is used to getting food on a regular basis and suddenly you stop giving it food, the next time you feed your body; it will store it as fat because it won’t know when will you feed it again.
9. Eat Dark Chocolate
A recent study has shown that eating dark chocolate will indeed stimulate weight loss. Just a heads up, dark chocolate is very bitter and not as tasty as milk chocolate.
Sorry, eating milk chocolate will not give you the same effect.
