Remove Love Handles

The Love handles – the areas of extra fat that hang or slightly bulge from your sides, and are also the little rolls on the lower back – both men and women can have these. If you’ve got them you’ve probably tried to get rid of them many times and failed.

If your diet contains high amounts of sugar and processed junk food, your chances of getting rid of your love handles in favor of flat, ripped abs are low, very low – even if you work out religiously. You will not see any definition in your abs unless you reduce your overall body fat, and a poor diet will cause your body to hold on to excess fat, despite all your exercise efforts. As the saying goes “you can’t out-train a poor diet!” Here’s my top 3 tips to remove fat from your love handles:

  • Reduce (or preferably) eliminate sugar from your diet: This includes ALL forms of sugar and fructose, both refined or “all-natural” such as fruit, agave or honey, as well as all grains as they quickly break down to sugar in your body.
  • Increase good fats in your diet: such as coconut and olive oil, avocados and animal-based omega-3s (salmon, grass fed beef).
  • Supplement with Chromium Picolinate, Magnesium & Fenugreek: My favourite supplements for controlling blood sugar.

One of the most detrimental dietary influences on your fat loss goals is fructose, which hides in so many processed foods and beverages, it can be near impossible to avoid unless you change the way you shop and cook. By avoiding processed foods in general, and focusing instead on whole, preferably locally grown organic foods, cooked at home, you can avoid one of the greatest dietary obstacles.
