    Hey guys, over the winter and due to laziness and poor diet I gained that weight that settles right above your beltline on the sides and towards the back (love handles?). What is the best way to get rid of this...exercise-wise. I KNOW the diet stuff. Should this be more cardio than anything else?
    Thanks!

    There is no way to do spot fat removal. As far as I've read the fat that is most recently piled on will be the first to go through fat loss. LIFO (Last In First Out)

    Only way is tight control of your diet in terms of clean food choices and burning more calories than you take in.

    Agree with above. It`s time for more cardio-to create a calorie deficit that`ll make your body use up fat to compensate.

    No. More is not necesarily better.

    1) fix your diet. less cals in vs more cals out.
    2) work smart - heavy and lower rep and volume weight training to retain muscle
    3) Cardio isn't necessary to loose weight. If you must cardio keep it reasonable when in a caloric deficit.

    I agree that it's mostly a diet issue. You'll get a lot of people telling you to make sure you're doing calorie restriction but I've found that fat around the middle is often a quality of food issue and not a quantity of food issue. Think about cutting out gluten, grains, dairy, alcohol and any food with added sugars.
