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.

Stubborn Fat | How to Reduce Stubborn Fat Non-Invasively

Stopping stubborn fat from shaping your future takes more than the weight-loss industry teaches. Their dime-store theories downplay the complex reality of human bodies and perpetuate myths about fat loss. We just need better education.

Hormones, gender, and genetics are factors that are not actively controlled. Instead, these factors predispose bodies to certain conditions. Your fat, particularly, has a “stretch factor” of its own nature. It is important to understand biology and physiology because your diet and exercise routines are based on that unique profile.

Read on to learn more about stubborn fat, how it forms, and how you can reduce it easily with CoolSculpting.

The Biology of Body Shape

An adult body out of puberty develops regular areas of the body where fat cells tend to hang out more than others. And the number of total fat cells in the entire body stops increasing. However, the total amount of fat cells remains the same, meaning that diet and exercise only influence the fat stored in those cells.

Genetic disposition and gender also affect how bodies turn out to be shaped. Most bodies gather fat cells in the thighs, buttocks, and stomach. For some, the fat tends toward the face and neck. More fat accumulates in the lower body as a predisposition to pregnancy.

The Physiology of Fat

There are two types of fat cells: cells with more Alpha-2 receptors versus cells with more Beta-2 receptors. All fat cells have both receptors, but one dominates the other and makes those cells function in two different ways. Alpha-2 stores fat, and Beta-2 breaks down fat. A simple “calorie-deficit” mindset does not always account for these characteristics.

The adult body has developed typical spots where fat cells gather. It has also developed those cells to act as fat-storing or fat burning. Diet and exercise are external factors working on fat cells that innately resist diet and exercise. Thanks to modern innovation in science and technology, getting off that stubborn fat is safer and more accessible than ever.

 

Fat Reduction Options

Some fat cells actually reject healthy living, but there are surprising and straightforward solutions. Liposuction or Coolsculpting offers an effective, safe, long-term option for fat reduction. It does so by removing the entire fat cell, not by removing fat from the cell; fewer fat cells overall instead of less fat in those cells. This creates a long-term deficit in fat content by decreasing the number of cells in an area. This mimics the appearance of organic weight loss, getting fat off simply by choice instead of by trial or by dieting.
