Love Handles, just reading the word makes you roll your eyes. Love handles or “muffin top” is that annoying fat that’s on the side of your hips that bulges over pants, and makes the stomach stick out in a bathing suit.
Since the beginning of time women have tried numerous ways to hide or remove the love handles. But every time the temporary fix no longer works we give up, and go back trying to cover up those love handles! However, now days there are many solutions that can help hide, slim down or even permanently get rid of those pesty love handles. There are now several solutions from dieting all the way to cosmetic procedures.
If you are truly serious about losing those love handles, here are a few different ways to help:
Exercise: You can do as many sit ups, crunches and pushups as you please, but you will still never lose the muffin top. Unfortunately, you can’t just work out once and the fat vanishes, in this case you would have to put in at least 4 to 5 cardio exercises in a week. By doing cardio you are getting your heart pumping and the blood flowing through your body. Some specific exercises that are good for the stubborn fat such as the love handles would be: planks, side planks and muscle ball chops. Of course with the exercise comes with the right kind of dieting. But over time your body will feel healthier, look toner and of course no love handles.
Fashion: There are several new clothing lines out that help suck in your love handles and makes you look great in your little black dress. You can wear spandex that will suck in your love handles or shape wear brand that has tank tops that help suck in the muffin look. These are just some examples, there are many brands out there these days that help form fit the body.
Fast Fix: One way to make yourself give off the appearance that you’re skinnier, and make you look like you’re fitting in your clothing would be a spray tan. If you look tanner, people are focusing on the tan and it gives the appearance of being skinner.
Forever Fix: If you don’t have time to exericese, or you want a fix that will last longer than a pair of spandex you can do a surgical or non-surgical procedure:
- Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedure:There is a new procedure treatment that is called Cool Sculpting. Cool Sculpting is non-surgical procedure that is injected in the specific areas you want treated and over time cools away the fat. This works best because you can treat the exact area of interested. This will require several treatments, but after a period of time the treatment works and you’ll see the results.
- Surgical Cosmetic Procedure: SmartLipo is one of the new top trends that has a 78% rate of working. This procedure works by going into the doctor’s office and laser off the area of fat that you want removed. There is little to no recovery, of course the area will be a little tender, and may cause a minor rash. Now only using SmartLipo will help small areas of fat loss, however if you combine SmartLipo with liposuction you will be able to get larger fat areas and will have an even higher chance to get rid of that annoying fat.
By using these different products you will receive different results, however they are all after one goal; getting rid of those love handles, that aren’t so loveable.
