Five Simple Eating Tips
1. Have A Eating Cut-Off Time
Cut off eating 2-3 hours before bed time.
2. Eat A Nourishing Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal.
People who have breakfast eat fewer calories throughout the day.
3. Drink Six 8-Ounce Glasses Of Water Daily
Your exercises will be more effective because you are fully hydrated.
Fat metabolism is more effective when you are fully hydrated.
(I go by the 8 x 8 rule. Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water)
4. Eliminate 6 Problem Foods
Soft Drinks — Contain empty calories.
Trans fat — Also known as partially hydrogenated fat
Fried foods — (eg French fries, fried chicken, chips and all other deep-fried foods)
White bread — Mostly empty calories. Eat wholewheat or wholegrain bread instead.
Alcohol — Slows the metabolism. Is high in calories. Alcohol is absorbed quickly in the stomach which leaves room for more food intake because you do not feel the fullness.
High fat milk/yogurt — A healthier alternative is 1% or skim milk. And eat low-fat yogurt.
5. Make Eating A Conscious Act
Avoid eating between meals(eg snacking while watching TV)
I hope this five simple eating tips is helpful to you.
Knowing how to plan your meals will help you achieve your goal of losing facial fat more effectively.

Hey guys and gals!
You all probably know that to lose face fat, you need to do face exercises and eat right.
A healthy breakfast will help kick start your day, and make you breeze into the office feeling cheery.
But what foods should you eat when you are trying to cut down on calories to lose the facial bulk?
No worries. Let me show you.
Your breakfast is ready … enjoy!
Remember, you want to follow a healthy, well-balanced diet when attempting to lose facial fat.
You too can look healthy and radiant with a little effort. Learn how you can have a lean, youthful looking face here: Lose Face Fat.
What can face exercises really do for your face?
Plenty… provided you do the right facial exercises consistently.
For women, our facial appearance changes noticeably in our 30s and 40s. The skin loses its suppleness, the high cheekbones is less defined, and the apple of the cheek (oops where did it go?).
If you are observant, you would notice that the first signs of aging often show up in the face and neck area? Fine lines appear on the face and “rings” around the neck.
The cheeks slide down. Face feels a little flabby. The facial contour is fuller. You see jowls. And for some, a double chin.
Most of us take good care of our skin. We have a daily regime to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and provide sun protection.
But what about the facial muscles? We hardly pay any attention to these working muscles.
You see, in order to maintain a youthful looking face, you require a combination of healthy skin and toned facial muscles.
If one or the other is not in good shape, you might end up looking older or haggard.
Here’s where face exercises come in.
Take a look at these benefits and you’ll know why more women are doing facial exercises to stay beautiful.
Your skin is revitalized. This is the first thing you would notice when you begin your face exercises. The blood circulation to the face improves during a facial exercise compared to when the facial muscles are at rest.
This promotes the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the facial tissues and aids skin cell renewal. Face exercises also stimulate lymph drainage which helps facial tissue detox.
With facial exercises, your skin looks healthier with a radiant glow.
Tone And Lift Facial Muscles
The face and neck area has 57 muscles. Facial muscles are small compared to other muscles in the body. But you can still exercise the face muscles to get them back in shape.
Toned muscles are firm to the touch and give a up lifting appearance. Face muscles that have not been exercised enough tend to be flaccid and sags.
With facial exercise the muscles and skin lift, tone and tighten restoring the face. The sagging face syndrome and wrinkles becomes less apparent.
Lose Face Fat
Are you trying to get a “slimmer” face?
One misconception is that you have to lose overall body weight to lose face fat.
Not true. Especially for individuals who have a healthy body weight or are already slender.
There are some amongst us who workout, have a toned shapely body, but still have a chubby looking face.
It is possible to make a puffy round face look slimmer through face exercises and the proper nutritional plan.
This approach also works if you are trying to get rid of a double chin, chubby cheeks or jowls.
You would want to go for toning, strengthening and sculpting exercises that target your facial problem zones to attain a more desirable facial contour.
Thus, to have a beautiful face, you want to take good care of both your skin and the facial muscles.
If you want to improve how you look, you might want to start by doing some facial toning exercises.
In fact, I find that you get to look better and better if you do the right face exercises consistently.

I have been thinking about the face exercises videos that I’ve up on YouTube lately. Some of you might have already viewed those videos here on my blog.
By all means, these workout demos, “Lose Your Chubby Cheeks” and “Lift Your Sagging Jowls” are simple and effective face exercises you can all do at home.
However, a nagging thought bugs me.
What if my readers think that by following ONE face exercise exactly 100%, they could fix the problem there and then.
No. That would be misleading the readers.
So I have decided to put things in the right perspective. Hear me ramble.
Those face exercises are indeed the proper facial workout people are doing to lose chubbiness or to lift saggy jowls.
However, it is NOT the only ONE face exercise required of you.
Why do I need more face exercises?
Because each face exercise serves a different purpose(s).
For example, Face Exercise 1 helps to relax and release muscle tension. Face Exercise 2 works to tone and lift the face muscles. And Face Exercise 3 serves to build and strengthen the facial muscles.
The muscles in the face benefit from a variety of workouts. Each part of the face, whether it’s the cheek muscles or the jaw muscles require different forms of muscular stimulation to get it in top shape.
Also, in reality, the face area isn’t that big. The face is just about the length of an out-stretch palm. Hence the face muscles are small, unlike the body muscles.
As such, even with a face exercise that target specific sets of facial muscles, it is not exact science to be able to isolate one set of muscles from another set of neighboring muscles. And there are times when you want to work several sets of muscle groups simultaneously.
For instance, you want to lift sagging jowls. Your focus is on doing jowls exercise. But don’t forget, the cheeks are the jowls’ up-stair neighbor. You have to work the cheeks too.
Otherwise, when flabby cheeks slide downwards, the jowls become more pronounced.
That’s why we always have more than one exercise to address a problem area of the face.
Would doing a single face exercise be in vain?
Certainly not. Your efforts still pays off. Every exercise brings some benefits.
Whenever you exercise the face, it stimulates blood circulation and detox of the face. Muscles activity remove toxins and brings much needed oxygen and nutrients to the skin.
You also improve muscle tone to a problem area.
Often, this is one of the first steps you need to do when planning to slim the face or to improve the facial contour.
What should I do next?
If you are after a toned face and radiant skin, you should exercise the face so that you work all the muscle groups of the face. You want balance and symmetry when you workout the facial muscles.
The face needs “maintenance” as we age. Double chin, jowls, wrinkles … all areas of the face will be a concern to you. Sooner or later, the face will need your attention to help lift or tuck.
You can now learn the face exercises others are doing to get the face in shape.

We often associate the person who wants to lose face fat with someone who is overweight. Most of the time, we think of a person with a rotund figure, chubby cheeks and a double chin.
However, that kind of stereo type image might not always be correct. Things are different now.
The truth is, many slim or average size individuals want to lose face fat too.
That’s right, slim and trim people can also developed facial fat and double chin.
This can be due to a genetic disposition. But more likely, it is a result of our modern day lifestyle habits.
Let’s take a look at some of the causes of a ‘fat’ face.
1. Water Retention
You think it’s facial fat. But sometimes, it can be water retention.
Water retention gives you a bloated facial appearance. A high sodium and low fiber diet can easily cause an imbalance of water retention in your body.
Strictly speaking, puffy cheeks are not due to face fat. Many people confused puffy cheeks with chubby cheeks. Knowing the difference will help you eliminate the root cause of looking fat.
2. Lack Of Exercise
The majority of people do not exercise the facial muscles.
Because not that many people know about face exercises.
The face is made up of facial muscles and fat pads. Facial fat usually accumulate in the cheek and chin areas. Without proper exercise, the face can look flabby, with pronounced jowls or a double chin.
3. Incorrect Sleeping Habits
Lack of sleep, too much sleep or erratic sleep patterns can interfere with the body biological clock.
This results in poor metabolism and terrible skin. Instead of burning calories, a sluggish metabolic rate cause the body to store more fat than normal. Your face looks chunky. Some people might develop belly fat even though they are not overweight.
4. Poor Nutrition
Are you eating healthy wholesome foods? Or are you more used to filling up your stomach with junk food?
Highly processed convenience food (eg microwave TV dinner, fast food, canned food) can satisfy your hunger, but are often poor in nutritional value.
A diet that is high in trans-fat, saturated fat, simple carbohydrate and sugar will eventually lead to a weight gain. Often, any weight you put on will also show up in the face.
As mentioned above, face fat is formed due to a combination of factors.
To lose face fat and slim a chunky face, a shift in lifestyle habits can be helpful. It might be difficult to make the changes initially. But I am sure the effort will be well worth it in the long run.
So, eat healthy, sleep right, and exercise your face. Keep these steps in mind, and you are ready to lose face fat anytime you want.
