How to Get Rid of Love Handles

Love handles are a common issue for many people. Fat in the love handles, or flanks, is a trouble zone for almost everyone. When the fat in this area clings to the sides of your body, it spills over the side of the pants giving you that “muffin top” look. Thankfully, there are ways you can try to reduce fat in the love handles.

What Diets Work to Get Rid of Love Handles?

Watching what you eat is an excellent way to try to trim off excess body fat. Some of the most useful ways you can diet to reduce fat include:

  • Limiting carbohydrates
  • Reducing sugar
  • Following a plant-based diet
  • Trying intermittent fasting

What is the Best Exercise to Get Rid of Love Handles?

Watching what you eat is not always enough to shed fat. Combining your diet with a regular exercise routine is a more comprehensive approach to reducing love handle fat. Certain exercises are great for reducing love handles.

These include:

  • Planks
  • Side planks
  • Russian twists
  • Mountain climbers
  • Abdominal scissors
  • Woodchoppers

Exercises are great for toning and tightening the midsection. However, they are not always enough to reduce fat. To lose fat, you have to reduce fat all over the body. There is, unfortunately, no such thing as “spot reduction” when it comes to fat loss.

Non-Invasive Method that Get Rid of Love Handles?

Exercise and diet are not always enough to burn off stubborn fat in the love handles. This area is known to hold on to resistant fat that avoids diet and exercise. So even if you work out daily and eat a good diet, you might still struggle with fat buildup on the waistline. Thankfully, there is a wonderful non-invasive method for individuals to get rid of love handles.

CoolSculpting to Get Rid of Love Handles

CoolSculpting is an excellent nonivasive treatment capable of reducing fat deposits in the love handles. This treatment uses cooling technology, Cryolipolysis, to eliminate the fat cell entirely. During treatments, the subcutaneous fat cells below the skin are subjected to this cooling. It effectively “freezes” fat cells causing the membrane to rupture. The process triggers cell death. Weeks after treatment, the body naturally gathers the dead cells and removes them from the body as waste.
