Love Handles

Love Handle Fat Reduction

What are love handles, and what causes them?

Love handles are the pesky deposition of fat that can be found on the sides of the waistline. Some people use funny synonyms such as the bulging waistline, spare tires, and hate handles. Many people find these difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. So what causes love handles? Various factors can contribute, including genetics, age, gender, and lifestyle choices.

For example, people who are overweight or obese are more likely to have love handles. That’s because when you carry extra weight, your body stores it in areas like your sides and belly. Men are also more likely to have them than women due to hormones. And as we age, our bodies become less efficient at burning fat, which can cause the handles to develop. Of course, poor diet and lack of exercise can also lead to fat accumulation around the waistline. So if you’re looking to get rid of your love handles, making healthy lifestyle choices is a good place to start.

How do you get rid of the handles through diet and exercise – is it even possible?!

Many of us have dealt with the dreaded “love handles” at some point. And while there’s no magic solution for getting rid of them, certain diet and exercise tweaks can help. For starters, you’ll want to focus on reducing overall body fat. This can be done by eating a healthy diet and engaging in regular cardio exercise. One study even found that HIIT (high-intensity interval training) was especially effective at reducing visceral fat, which is the type of fat that accumulates around the waist. In addition, you may also want to add some strength training to your routine. This will help to tone the muscles in your midsection and give you a more sculpted look. So, while there’s no guaranteed way to get rid of love handles, making these lifestyle changes can help.

What are some alternative methods for getting rid of handles if diet and exercise don’t work for you?

A few options are available if you’re looking for alternative methods to get rid of love handles. coolsculpting or cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that uses freezing temperatures to kill fat cells, and Fotona Tightsculpting is a laser treatment that tightens skin and reduces fat. Belkyra injections are also an option, which involves injecting a solution into the fat deposits to break them down. However, these procedures can be expensive, so research before deciding.
