Love Handles

Love handles are excess adipose tissue which can accumulate when a person consumes more calories than their body is burning. Over time, this excessive consumption will lead to fat accumulation in the hip and waist areas. A healthy balanced lifestyle will help control this issue.

There are many factors that can contribute towards love handles and these can increase the likelihood of retaining fat in the lower back, hips and abdominal areas. Fat can accumulate in many areas of the body but the love handles can be a main concern for the majority of people.  

These are some of the factors that can contribute towards love handles:  

  • Hormones 
  • Age (Belly fat accumulation is particularly as common as you get older)  
  • Lack of physical activity  
  • A diet high in fats, sugars and high-calorie foods 
  • Sleep deprivation  
  • Undiagnosed or untreated conditions that slow down your metabolism or underactive thyroid.

Love Handles


Love handles won’t completely go away. However, can be reduced by following a healthy, low-fat diet, and regular cardio and abdominal exercises.  

Doing regular 20-30 minutes of exercise daily targeting the oblique muscles to help tighten up the waist area. Core exercises such as side planks, crunches and twists can be effective.  

With most things body-related there is a blend of your genetic predisposition to certain fat storage sites, as well as your lifestyle decisions around what you eat and how much exercise you do.
