One of the first things to show up when you begin to put on a few unwanted pounds is love handles.  These nasty lumps hanging off your waist are not romantic in the least, and I have never heard of anyone bragging about them.  However, it is possible to get rid of those love handles by taking a few weight loss tips to heart and sticking with them.

Many people get discouraged about losing weight when the scale ticks down slowly.  But, if you make a concerted effort to change your eating and lifestyle habits, you will soon see a positive and dramatic change in your appearance.  Think how happy you will be when those love handles melt away.

Sugar-filled drinks, such as colas and many fruit juices, can wreak havoc with any diet.  Because we are not actually ‘eating’ these drinks, we tend to forget that they can add unwanted calories to our daily intake.  Those delicious mochas and other designer coffees should also be avoided, as they can have from 200 to over 700 calories, depending on which beverage you choose.  Having just two of the higher end lattes can almost fill your caloric needs for one day!

Keeping a record of everything that goes into your mouth during the day is another good way to get a grip on why you are overweight.  So often, we don’t think about having ‘just one more chocolate’ or another slice of cheese.  These little nibbles add up, though, and realizing when you are having them can help you to eliminate them easily.

Years ago, I was dining with a friend in a nice restaurant.  When the plates were brought to the table, I was astonished to see a literal mountain of food in front of me.  It is no exaggeration to say that the mound of food was 7” high and covered the entire surface of the plate.  I ate until I was full, but barely dented it.  My friend ate every scrap on her plate, but she also weighed over 200 pounds.  Huge portions, whether at a restaurant or at home, will add to your weight problem.  Make your portions smaller than usual, and you will find that your love handles will begin to shrink.  Do not go overboard, because if you get hungry, you will look for something to eat, but cut back gradually.

Eating some fruit or vegetables with every meal can help you lose weight painlessly.  Not only do these foods contain valuable vitamins and minerals, the fiber they contain can help you to feel full.  Because fresh fruit and vegetables are low in calories, they are an excellent choice for a snack, perhaps with a little piece of cheese.

People desperate to lose belly fat and love handles often try to skip meals to cut calories.  This is a terrible idea, it will only make you so hungry that you will gorge at the first opportunity.  Rather than skipping meals, a better plan is to eat more meals.  However, these should be small meals that are spaced out during the day.  Having six small meals during the day will keep you from feeling hungry and keep your energy levels high.

Losing weight is not easy, but once you start, you will be encouraged by the results.  Keep your end goal in mind, and don’t give up if you ‘fall off the wagon’ once or twice, as long as you continue with a sensible weight loss plan, you will end up with a slimmer, more attractive you.
