No need to embark on a very restrictive diet or starve! However, it is still necessary to adopt a healthy diet to lose your saddlebags. Indeed, all sugars (cakes, sweets, pastry…) and unsightly excess fat tend to get lodged in the abdominal strap for men. However, for women, all this fat mass often favors the lower body. To remove the saddlebags, you will need:

-Fill up on fruits and vegetables rich in dietary fiber. In general, all foods rich in insoluble fiber and soluble fiber are to be preferred. Low in calories, they go absorb carbohydrates and fats.
-Limit alcohol, sugar and salt (promoting water retention)
-Avoid eating very fatty foods. Foods high in saturated fat and junk food have often limited nutritional intake and lodged directly on the thighs.
-Without completely banishing fat, promote good fats to bad fats. Instead of omega-6 in peanuts, corn or sunflower oil, prefer omega-3 in walnuts, rapeseed or flaxseed oil and omega-9 in olive oil for cooking.

Any sport practice is a plus. However, some sports are more suitable than others. Often, saddlebags are the result of imbalance between the amount of fat absorbed by the body and the amount of fat burned. Also, the practice of a cardio activity will allow a calorie expenditure to burn fat.

There is :
-High intensity cardio activities: hiit, CrossFit RPM, body attack, body combat
-The running or the jump rope
-Boxing
-The sports softer, but deep such as a few swimming lengths with short fins or aquabiking

Losing your saddlebags takes tenacity and effort. If, however, you are still having trouble, there are other more expensive techniques. In institute or at the dermatologist, cryolipolysis (or coolsculpting) can be very effective on small well localized fatty surpluses. Count between 150 and 500 euros per session. Last option, not without risks, the liposuction by infiltration (or liposuction) could be proposed to you by a cosmetic surgeon. Cosmetic surgery remains a last resort, however.
