5 Tips on How to Lose Love Handles

  • Try HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) workouts

It’s important to focus on working out harder, not longer. So instead of jogging for 40 minutes, try doing sprint intervals for 20 minutes. You can also try any of the many HIIT workouts on the web that incorporate high-intensity exercises like burpees, lunge jumps, box jumps, and mountain climbers. Indoor cycling intervals are another option.

  • Eat Yogurt

Eat fresh fruit and organic yoghurt (preferably plain) for breakfast. The probiotics in the yoghurt aid digestion and belly fat loss. A University of Tennessee study found that participants who ate three servings of yoghurt a day lost 81% more belly fat than those who didn’t eat yoghurt as part of a reduced-calorie diet. Avoid salt as much as possible since the popular seasoning causes bloating.

  • Embrace the plank

You won’t whittle down your midsection by doing ab exercises alone, there are exercises you can do to tone your tummy and strengthen your core. Three exercises are the side plank, the side plank with knee tuck, and the elbow-to-knee plank.

  • Balance your meals

Eat three meals a day and two snacks. Each meal should be composed of a lean protein like Beans, lentils or non-fat yoghurt; a fibrous carb like veggies, whole grains, or fruits; a healthy fat like avocado or nuts. Snacks should obviously be healthier choices like yoghurt with berries, veggie sticks, or a handful of almonds.

  • Switch up your Ab exercises

To make sure that your midsection gets a good workout, keep challenging it with new exercises. Mountain climbers,  oblique crunches, Side bends and standing twists.
