ELIMINATE Love Handles with 3 Top Foods

by Kevin DiDonato, MS, CSCS, CES

I had just stepped out of my robe and was preparing to take a shower.

For some reason, on this day, I decided to step in front of the full-length mirror—and I will forever be haunted by the image.

Now, I pretty much always thought I was in pretty decent shape…

But what I saw in the mirror on that fateful day changed the course of my eating and exercising patterns forever.

I had love handles…

And not just some tiny love handles, but enough “love” to look like I had an inflatable tube wrapped around my belly.

I was mortified…

As my mind raced, I could only think about how my wife had to look at those every day.

Sure, I had put on a few pounds, but I didn’t think it was THAT noticeable.

But it was.  So I decided, then and there, that I was going to make some changes and get rid of those love handles forever.

Can you relate?

So, I overhauled my diet…

I started hitting the gym with a little more gusto…

And I started to target my “love handles” in hopes of eliminating them—once and for all!

Now, I realize that you can’t “spot reduce” any area on your body…

…but you can strengthen areas in order to give you the sleek body…the tight and toned waistline…and the six-pack look that everyone seems to be after!

So, what did I do (and what you should be doing too)?

Take a close look:

Eliminate Your Love Handles

Now, let’s be perfectly clear, exercise is NOT the only key to losing weight and reshaping your body.

It’s just a piece to the overall puzzle.

In order to strip away your belly fat…lose your love handles…and make people turn their heads…

You need to exercise…do cardio…and make sure you’re eating the RIGHT type of diet!

The combination of these three could result in a body that you’ve only dreamed about!

Diet is the key to getting rid of your love handles, so be sure you’re getting in these THREE foods to help you tone and trim up your waistline:

1. Red Raspberries

One of the biggest things you need to get a flat belly or eliminate your love handles is plenty of fiber.

Fiber has been shown to fill you up, boost satisfaction after a meal, and improve digestion.

Now, you may think there are other ways to get fiber—and you would be right.  But raspberries contain nearly EIGHT grams of fiber, beating out other popular fruits.

And speaking of fiber, not only do they fill you, which prevents you from eating more, they have been shown to boost the hormone Ghrelin in your body.

High levels of Ghrelin have been shown to control hunger, therefore preventing the need to eat more.

2. Oysters

Besides being a potent aphrodisiac, oysters also do wonders when it comes to losing your love handles.

Although they are a great source of protein, oysters also contain potent levels of zinc.  Adequate zinc intake has been shown to impact leptin levels, therefore suppressing appetite.

If you’re overweight or even obese you may have lower leptin levels, which could make you hungrier.

Plus, half a dozen oysters contain only 42 calories, but a boatload of zinc and iron.

3. Grapefruit

There are plenty of awesome benefits to the grapefruit.

Besides it being low in calories and having plenty of fiber, it may also contain powerful phytochemicals that could help the fat loss process.
In fact, one study showed that eating half a grapefruit before your morning meal may enhance your body’s fat burning potential.

The same study showed that people who ate half a grapefruit took off up to an inch off their waistline in just SIX weeks!

Top Love Handle Elimination Foods

If you have love handles, then you need to listen up: You don’t have to be saddled with them forever!

The fact is: You need to exercise and eat the right foods in order to shed the unwanted pounds and finally eliminate those love handles.

Eating oysters…having a half of a grapefruit before your breakfast…and including fresh red raspberries may help curb your appetite and boost your overall fat loss.

Combine these foods with a sound exercise program and you may find the fat melting off your body.

You have nothing to lose (except your love handles and belly) by trying out these metabolism-boosting foods.
