Lose Your Love Handles Before Someone Holds On To Them

Are your love handles getting in the way of your button and zip? Tired of wearing baggy tops? Fear not, they're not permanent, unless you keep eating cake. Love handles can appear from puberty. Love handles have no preference and they form in men and women. Men can't carry them off as well as women though.
Love handles are where your body likes to store fat. You can not pin point where you want to lose fat so you're going to have to tackle this problem at all angles. The first step you can take is fix your diet, those love handles didn't appear from nowhere. Changing your diet will not only help you lose weight but it can also prevent any water retention and bloating. If you do suffer from bloating then you've promoted your love handles to a muffin top. Cut the junk from your diet for the next 30 days. See how better you feel and see how better you look. Your jeans will thank you.
So what simple change can you make to lose your love handles. Drink plenty of water. Water can increase your metabolism by 30%, it is also one of the best fat burners. Aim to consumer 2 litres per day, increase this as you get accustomed to it. Avoid high sodium and spicy foods. High salt levels in your diet will cause water retention, which causes bloating and puffiness in your skin, making you look bigger than you actually are. Many people react to spicy foods too, check to see if you're one of them but avoiding spices.
You are what you eat, so cut all junk and processed food. Eat six small meals a day making sure you eat breakfast to fire up your metabolism first thing in the morning. Snack on fruit and veg between your main meals. Don't have a large meal after 6pm. Our body naturally slows down in the evening so if you like a midnight snack make sure it's a healthy one.
Cut out the alcohol. Alcohol has hidden calories as it is high in sugar and carbohydrates. Alcohol also causes dehydration making you crave another drink, usually another beer or wine. Alcohol also makes kebabs look rather attractive.
Do some cardio that you enjoy. If when I said cardio a treadmill popped in to your head, get rid of it. You can do your cardio by going to football or Zumba classes. If you don't have any something in mind for your cardio then get yourself a good workout program.
