There is nothing to love about love handles. They just kind of pop out when you sit and the worst is when you try to fit them in your jeans. In order to really get rid of it, you need to precisely target them; with a combination of diet, exercise, and other factors. So, here are a few tips and exercises to follow and lose your love handles.

The first step is to cleanse your body of all the toxins. Change your lifestyle. Eat lean and clean. Include lots of protein and fiber in your diet.
- Don’t skip breakfast
Breakfast is the first meal of the day and you must not skip it. For the only reason being, that you feel hungrier as the day goes on. And end up binging on snacks and munchies.
Do your cardio. At least begin with 30 minutes of cardio and gradually increase the time. Studies show that people who did cardio gained less weight around the belly.
- Get sleep
Staying up late at night calls for late night munchies. It's best to get in bed two hours after your dinner to avoid cravings. Your body needs at least seven hours of sleep, give your body some rest.
- Follow the 10-minute love handle exercise

Replace your regular rice with black rice. This rice is rich in anti-oxidants and less in sugar. More antioxidants mean less inflammation, which means less fat storage for you.
