Lose the Love-handles

I’m 6’2” and 205 lbs. I’ve always been active and fit, and with the amount of muscle I have, I’m not overweight. I have however put on some Lovehandles in the last year or so. I’d like to focus my workouts and diet on targeting this area. Any advice is great!

    Sadly you can't spot reduce fat unless it's surgical.

    True. My midsection is where I put on fat first and take it off last - and that's just down to my biology. Right now I'm on a rapid 2-pound cut to get rid of some post-bulk body fat before I go on vacation down south.

    Stop doing whatever it is you started doing in the past year, go back to previous workout and eating habits and over time, perhaps a year or so, you'll get back to where you were.

    Targeting any part of the body for fat loss, short of liposuction, is not possible on a human. You need to lose fat overall. Usually the first places to gain the extra fat tissue are the last to lose it. There are physiological reasons for why that is.

    Sadly this. Calorie deficit to lose overall fat.

    I lost weight. The love handles disappeared last. Keep losing.

    Liposuction and any type of fat freezing or burning causes long-term cell hypertrophy and lots of long-term health problems. It isn't magic. http://roguehealthandfitness.com/dangers-of-liposuction/ You can check this out and https://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/01/weekinreview/01kolata.html, and there is so much more. Liposuction is a dangerous and harmful scam. Short term results do equal the long-term.
