I have been working out for 3 years and am in a good shape. My only problem is that I have extraordinary huge love handles and some belly fat that I can't seem to lose!
I workout in the morning 3-5 days a week. I have access to pool and I can do cardio. I've been on a diet for quite a long time, but I'm not losing the waist area fat. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 93 kg. I'm planning to get to 87kg - 83kg, and people say I'm close to a mesomorphic body type.
What diet and workouts help the most in losing fat in the waist area (belly and love handles)? Are there any foods that I need to stop or take more?
My current diet, which I've been on for diets 2 months and lost 8kg, is:
- a mid-size plate of white oats with honey and nuts
- banana or an whole grain bar
- salad with tuna or salad with 2 chicken breasts
- apple or dates
- a chicken based meal or fish based
- around 2 beers a week
My workout, which also includes 15-30 minutes of swimming after each session, is:
- Arms (7 workouts) + abs(2)
- Chest (5)
- Leg (6)+ abs(2)
- Back (6)
- Shoulders (4) + abs (2)
I switched to strength training last week.
