Your love handles reside right on top of your obliques. You’d think these muscles would respond to normal abs exercises, but they don’t. Diet and the right exercises can help you get rid of those nasty love handles in no time.
The proper diet that melts love handles in record time is the dairy diet. Diary products have high calcium content, a mineral that accelerates metabolism and favors fat burning.
The dairy diet for melting love handles is very simple. You need to consume the following products three times a day for 7 days:
– 3 tablespoons of farm fresh cheese
– 250 ml of skimmed milk
– 125-150 g of skimmed yoghurt
Here’s how the daily menu should look like:
Breakfast: 250 ml cereal and milk, 1 tablespoon yogurt with 1 tablespoon of golden raisins
Snack: 125 g of skimmed yoghurt
Lunch: Dried fruit and banana mix with 125g of skimmed yoghurt
Snack: Farm fresh cheese with fresh vegetables
Dinner (3-4 hours before bedtime): Chicken breast or fish with cooked vegetables and 125 g yoghurt
Snack before bedtime: pineapple or orange
Best exercises to melt love handles
When you think about exercising for the abdomen, the first thing in your mind is the normal abs exercise. Wrong, experts say. These exercises strengthen the abdomen muscles, but they don’t burn the fat layer. Try the following exercises, which are much more effective in burning your love handles.
Exercise no. 1
Stretch your legs like in the picture and put your hand on your hip. Swing to one side until you touch the ankle with your fingertips. Repeat the exercise 10 times, then switch hands. For best results, do this exercise in the morning and evening.
Exercise no. 2
Lay down on your back back and raise your legs on 90-degree angle with the floor. Raise your hands and try to touch your ankles with your fingertips. Repeat the exercise 10 times, then pause and repeat.
Exercise no. 3
Place your hands behind your head, elbows out wide and knees slightly bent. Isolate your core making sure your hips don’t move. Twist to one side then the other alternating sides.
Do 100 reps.
