The goal of this article is to help you find the best solution for getting rid of your double chin. I will give you the pros and cons of each option available so you can make the best choice.
There are several treatments available that “claim” to get rid of a double chin so I understand how you may feel overwhelmed and confused as to which is the best option for you.
Getting rid of your double chin is actually very similar to arriving at work on time. How you might ask? I’ll explain. When going to work your main concern is to get there as quickly as possible while also getting there safely. Isn’t this also true about getting rid of your double chin? You want that double chin gone as fast as possible but also want to make sure you are going to be safe.
Those are the two major differences when it comes to double chin solutions; speed and safety.
The first category of ways to get rid of a double chin is home remedies. These solutions are extremely safe but results are equally as slow. You may have heard that doing chin exercises can get rid of a double chin? If you’ve never heard of these Chin exercises what they are is basically a way of stretching the jaw repeatedly. People have made online videos explaining how to do these chin exercises and have made claims that it can tighten the muscles under the chin reducing the appearance of a double chin.
The truth of the matter is that this is unrealistic and these treatments don’t work. Doing chin exercises will not remove your double chin.
Yes, it is true that exercise will result in fat loss. However, these chin exercises do not qualify as legitimate exercise for fat loss. These chin exercises are nowhere near the amount of intensity needed to burn fat.
Diet & Exercise
Now let’s say you do work out at the intensity level to burn fat and you eat healthy food.
Unfortunately even doing both of these may not fix your double chin problem. One of the most frustrating parts of losing fat from exercise and diet is you can’t control where the fat loss occurs. When exercising, it’s very common to lose fat in your stomach and not your love handles. Unfortunately, there’s no way of telling your body which areas to burn fat. Also another common problem with fat loss from diet and exercise is loose sagging skin.
The next list of options are great for dealing with these two problems; targeted fat loss and loose sagging skin. And they are all non-surgical.
The third category of ways to get rid of a double chin is non-surgical options. These solutions are both safe and fast. Hence why it’s the most popular option.
Here are the 4 most popular ways to get rid of your double chin without surgery.
