5 Most Effective Workouts For Love Handles

workouts for love handles

There are lots of  effective workouts for love handles.

Having a flat stomach feels great but that extra bit of flabby skin on your sides can be a real nuisance and most people struggle to get rid of it.

You can work your butt at the gym till the cows come home, but exercise is not enough to get rid of your love handles completely.

I believe diet plays a much important role in weight loss and getting that flat firm stomach you always wanted. Doing sit-ups and crunches will only work upper and lower abdominal muscles.

That’s why I have come up with the most effective workouts for getting rid of your love handles.

Before I discuss that, I want to say if you are serious about shedding fat from your waist you have to watch what you eat.

The Reality is that most people don’t care about what they eat.

I use to be the same, and it takes getting use to not eating your favorite fried food, takeaways, and sugary foods that most of us crave, especially after a night out with your friends.

Weight Loss is determined by the portion of food you eat and the intensity of your workouts.

If you continue to eat badly, this will have a negative effect on your health and sooner than rather than later you will look for a solution to it.

Protein and fiber are a great way to feel fuller throughout the day. If you cut out fatty fried food, sugary food and eat more of the following you will lose weight.

  • Protein
  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Red Meat
  • Brown Bread
  • Brown Rice
  • Vegetables
  • cereals

By eating a  high protein and fiber foods, you will feel less tempted to eat sugary foods that cause you to gain weight.
