Love handles are those not so cute little rolls of fat that tend to stick out over the top of your trousers. I will leave it to your own imagination as to how the name love handles came about.
The development of these little rolls of fat on your hips or a small increase in your belly is usually the first indication of weight gain. Unfortunately if left unchecked the weight continues to increase.
How do you get rid of love handles?
Weight loss is unfortunately not targeted and so the minute that you begin to experience weight gain you should start to counteract and make an effort to get rid of the increase in weight.
By fighting weight gain right at the onset you will have a far better chance of succeeding in your weight loss and of getting rid of the love handles.
Exercises to get rid of love handles
Love handles are pouches of fat that sit on top of the muscles on the side of your body which are termed oblique’s.
Exercise will tone and improve oblique’s but unless there is some fat loss the oblique exercises will not remove the love handles themselves. In order to lose the love handles you should consider increased exercise in conjunction with reduced calories and a healthy lifestyle.
For those who are seeking a toned and cut look some great exercises for oblique’s can be found here.
For the average person who is not into heavy exercise and body building techniques I would suggest that you embark on a general weight loss program which will help to remove the fat pouches and love handles.

By simply increasing your physical activities by 10% or more you are already well on your way to increased weight loss and improved health.
