The double chin is a benchmark of achieving a certain degree of obesity. Having a double chin not only gives you confirmation of fatness but also tells you that you’ve not been taking good care of your health.
There are many myths and methods out there in the internet that claim that they can remove a double chin easily within a day. These methods are most likely not as effective as it is hyped. Practicing these reckless methods may result in additional fat gain, mood depression and possibly another layer on your chin!
Depending on how you perceive it, losing a double chin can be easy or hard. This article will teach you lifestyle changes instead of quick fixes. You cannot spot reduce fat in a specific place. You can only reduce fat as a whole and it is best done with tried and true methods of fat loss. Practice these rules and guidelines religiously and you will lose your double chin in due time.
The most important aspect of losing fat is of course, your diet. Remember to include the basics such as eating multiple small meals a day instead of just 2-3 big meals a day. This will ramp up your metabolism and increase the number of calories burned.
Stop eating junk food and snacks. Your diet should compromise primarily of vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. These foods will allow you to take in the proper amount of nutrients you need on a daily basis.
Take note to not eat any processed carbohydrates as unused carbohydrates will store as fat. Instead of rice and noodles, eat a couple pieces of chicken breasts. Instead of ice-cream and chips, eat a handful of nuts. The quality and food choices you make will determine your success in losing fat.
Exercise can help you burn calories so you can lose fat faster. Any form of cardiovascular exercise or weight training will help you burn calories fast. It should be noted that the more intense the activity, the better your fat loss.
There are a few cardiovascular and weightlifting methods that are great at burning fat fast. Those methods are high intensity intervals and complexes. High intensity interval training is the activity of doing a high intensity exercise followed by a low intensity one. An example would be sprinting for 20 seconds, walking for 30 seconds after that and repeat.
Complexes are the use of weights as a circuit to burn a large amount of calories in a short period of time. This makes it one of the most efficient and best methods for fat loss. Simply choose a couple of barbell exercises which can be easily transitioned into and do them for repetitions.
An example of a complex would be: Deadlift, barbell row, power clean, military press and finally front squats. Repeat this cycle 6 times for 1 set. Do as many sets as you can. Note that the weights used in complexes is generally very low.
Adrenal burnout from stress and work will cause your body to store more fat in the abdomen and facial area. If you have been suffering from lack of sleep and low energy levels, this might be your problem.
By curing adrenal burnout, your facial fat can melt off as quickly as you can sleep better. Of course, the only way to cure adrenal fatigue is to stop the source of stress. Taking magnesium pills can also help.
By being disciplined in your diet and exercise, you can lose fat not only on your face and chin but also everywhere else. Or you can just fork out the money you’ve been saving for months and go for surgery instead. I wouldn’t recommend that though.
