The shape and size of our face may vary, however, we can clearly tell when it is influenced by fat. So if you feel uncomfortable about the appearance of your face as a result of a chubby cheek or double chin, you can go ahead and do something about it.
Note that just because you want to lose weight on the face doesn’t mean that you can achieve that when you solely target on your face. The best way will be to aim losing weight generally and your face will eventually respond accordingly.
In this blog post, we shall take a look at some effective tips on how to lose fat the right way.
Redefine Your Weight-Loss Goal
It’s time we get it right! Even though your face is where the problem lies, your target is supposed to be your general body. The truth is even though your face seems to have most the share of fat, your whole body harbor the fat. If you must successful get rid of the face fat, it must be done on all fronts.
So the idea you should take on is creating a deficit of calorie in the body. This implies burning more calories than you take in. As a result, the excess fat is converted to energy and used. The more you lose fat this way, the higher the chances that your face will give up its fat. It is also important to note here that just because you have a full chin and cheek does not mean that it contains an excess of fat.
Also, don’t force your way into getting chiseled, supermodel’s face. Such issues usually have a connection with your genetics and bone structure. To regulate that effectively might require much more than just exercise and diet; you will require patience for those supporting structure to give way as you old. In all of these, the key is in getting out more calories than you consume.
You can start by knowing your current rate of calorie burn with a calorie estimator tool and afterward work on creating a deficit of this rate of calorie burn. Take on physical activities and eating habits that help create this deficit. Make sure to give yourself time and don’t go over cut on calories that you leave your body nutritional deficient. This wouldn’t help your goal at all. Make sure to take it slow and steady.
Eat for a Healthier-Looking Face
I couldn’t stress more on the importance of your diet for the success of any weight loss goal. Diets for a healthy body should include fruits, vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains. You must ensure all of your diets contain this food on a well-regulated portion. For instance, you can choose to have your plate divided into three parts containing three different types of food.
The first part of your plate can contain vegetables or leafy greens like green beans, spinach, broccoli, lettuce and so on. The second part could consist of whole grains such as barley or brown rice. The third part of the plate can be wrapped up with lean protein like lean steak or fish, white meat chicken or eggs. It is particularly important that protein is always included. Proteins will help you regulate your food intake. It will make you feel full on time and as a result, discourage muscle burning.
Note that your face can look bulgy as a result of retaining excess water. To avoid this, it is important to get in as much water as possible into the body, so that it is discouraged from holding unto water. Also, avoid consuming sodium in excess by cutting down on processed and the popular fast foods.
Exercise to Lose Fat
Apart from the general exercise routines, there are also face-specific ones that can help (note that they don’t entirely get rid of the fat). However, like we have earlier on said, the focus should be on the total body. Cardiovascular exercises such as cycling or brisk walking go a long way to burn calories and lose fat as a result. Dedicate as much time as you can on these exercises – no matter how little (about 300 minutes a week will do). These exercises don’t have to be done outside; you can do them in the comfort of your home. However, if you need to take it outside, avoid over-exposing your skin to sunlight. This can give rise to an undesirable effect on the face.
If you can, you should introduce strength training exercise too. This will help preserve your lean muscle and also build more, and build your metabolism in the process. The more your muscle mass, the greater your chances of efficiently burning calories. Incorporate workouts such as pull-ups, push-up, and squats into your daily exercise routine and watch your face getting back to its proper shape and size.
