HOW TO GET RID OF FAT AROUND THE NECK

Excess fat around the neck is not only unsightly but also can be an early sign of obesity.

Because of its proximity to the face, fat in the neck area can lead to problems with self-esteem. There’s no way to target the neck, or any other area of the body, to remove fat specifically from that area. But you can exercise the neck area to stimulate muscle growth that will help burn the surrounding fat more efficiently than before.

STEP 1

Walk or jog for 30 to 60 minutes a day, three to five times a week. Cardiovascular workouts, such as walking or jogging, are the best exercises for losing weight. Although you are not targeting your neck area when performing a cardio workout, over time you will experience fat loss around the neck as well as the rest of your body. Walk or jog briskly, but not so hard that you’re out of breath.

STEP 2

Hold your hand against the side of your head over your ear. Try to touch your shoulder to your ear while providing gentle resistance with the hand. Hold each repetition for five counts. Do three sets of eight repetitions, then switch to the other side. Do these exercises one to three times a day.
