    so i figured this site would be a good place to ask if anyone has gotten zerona treatment. i'm already in good shape, have a great diet, do intense cardio/sports circuit training, and dont drink much. however, i have small love handles (on the lower back) which will not budge, and it's annoying and frustrating, given all the above. i've read about Zerona, but there seem to be mixed reviews as to whether it works.

    any guys have any comment?
    thanks.

    How about learning to love your body as it is? After all, you've worked hard to get it where it is.

    After seeing your shirtless pic (given that it's a recent photo), I'd have to say I think your expectations are not realistic. I just can't see these "love handles' you say exist.

    I was involved with this guy who always thought he had love handles. He was super skinny, insane about his workout, counting grains of sugar to the bit, and still hated the way he looked. His body was tight, but you couldn't compliment him without him hating on himself.

    Obsessing about a tiny imperfection isn't healthy. It screws up your image of yourself and if you start to criticize every little thing about yourself, you won't enjoy any of the benefits you should be getting from being a very in shape, well put together guy.

    Anyhow, tiny imperfections are infinitely more attractive than the same off-the-shelf chiseled torso that every other mec in the world has.

    Ugh, you're preching to the choir! I can totally relate to your situation and how you feel about it. Like you, I thought "Okay, I have done EVERYTHING and the love handles will not go away. So i checked out liposuction and all the other methods available to "fix" the problem. My hesitation came from the downtime needed to recuperate . . I just can't take that much time off of work. So I put thoughts of surgery on the back burner.

    I continued working out, making my diet even cleaner, and increasing my cardio SLIGHTY. And guess what? It's finally melting away. Not as fast as I want, but I see it going down. I ain't got no muffin top! First time in YEARS!

    I know at my ripe old age my metabolism has slowed down tremendously. That's nature, watta ya gonna do?

    I know by really focusing on diet (it's the key) and raising your metabolism (naturally), you will see results.

    Best of luck.

    That is where men are supposed to store fat. You can minimize it, but you probably won't see it go away completely because it's not supposed to. Just like women store fat in their hips and thighs. Why not just accept this as normal and be happy with how you look? Because believe me.....if you reduced your love handles to nothing, you'd obsess about another body part.

    Skip it and hire a shrink instead. Looking at your pics has me thinking that's some seriously irrational shit you're contemplating.

    I know exactly what you're talking about, and I am presently working to reduce them. I would have to agree with eddieross69 that the best way is to continue with what you're doing and amp it up a bit.

    The way I see it is that by slowly reducing the excess fat in the area by way of continued cardio/diet, it becomes a more permanent whole body change, as opposed to a short term fix.

    I've been mixing up my cardio by using the alternating between eliptical and a stairclimber/rowing machine combo.

    Clean eating (limit alcohol) as a permanent lifestyle choicewill do wonders.

    Yeah- I have to agree with 'sp' because I don't really see them myself- but your eyelids do seem to have some excess fat.
