The acquisition of love handles is one of the most common signs of being out-of-shape. Many people are not outright obese carry around a little extra weight in the form of love handles, which is just another name for excess abdominal fat that accumulates around the waist.

Love handles may be slight or unmistakably pronounced, and the methods used to get rid of them vary by size and the individual. For some, all it takes is a slight reduction in daily caloric intake. It is suggested that reducing calories by 100 per day equals a 10-pound reduction in weight after one year. That may be just enough to lose your love handles.

The best way to get in shape and lose love handles is not through one method alone. It is through a combination of diet and exercise. A diet high in whole grains and vegetables and low in fat is a good start. A full-body exercise regimen is also recommended, but exercises that focus on the abdomen and back will help to reduce love handles the quickest. These exercises will not specifically help to lose the fat that causes love handles, but they will help keep the muscles in the area taut, reducing the visibility of any fat present.

Some of the best exercises for love handles include the following:

Sit-ups and crunches These are the standard abdominal exercises and should be used together for the best effect. However, many people get bored with standard ab work, so they may use a specialty sit-up or crunch method.

Twist crunches This is a common specialty crunch exercise. To perform, lie on your back with your knees bent and hands behind your head. Twist your body to the left and raise your left knee until it meets your right elbow. Repeat, but twist right, bringing your right knee to your left elbow.

Trunk twists Stand up and plant your feet firmly. Twist your torso to the left, bringing your right arm across your body. Then, twist to the right, brining your left arm across your body. Repeat 99 times.

For best results, it is not necessary to exercise every day. To get rid of love handles, 3 to 4 times per week should be sufficient.
