4. Lose Weight

If you have a double chin, chances are that you are overweight. As much as many of us wish it were true, you can’t target just one area of your body for weight loss unless you submit to liposuction. You need to lose weight from your entire body. The good news here is that one of the first places people lose weight is in their face and neck. Aim to lose five to 10 percent of your body weight over a 90-day period and you should see results within six weeks.


5. Perform Aerobic Exercises

One way to burn fat from your entire body is to get at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise five days each week. This will increase your metabolism and improve your chances of losing neck fat as well as fat in the face area.


6. Avoid Trans-Fats

This dangerous type of fat offers you no real nutritional value, only unhealthy calories, and it really packs on the pounds. Avoid prepackaged foods, processed foods, frozen foods (even so-called diet foods) and fast foods. These are the biggest culprits when it comes to trans-fats.


7. Focus On Lean Protein

Red meat, such as beef, tends to contain a great deal more fat than fish or chicken. Avoid eating unhealthy sources of fat such as red meat. You should focus on eating more lean meats and other sources of healthy fats such as avocados and coconut oil.


8. Eat Complex Carbs

Refined carbs, such as white flour, offer very little in the way of nutrition but they do offer spikes in your blood sugar, which often lead to excess pounds. Focus more on eating whole grain and complex carbs, such as potatoes, that slow the digestive process and make you feel full for longer periods of time.


9. Cheek Exercises

There are exercises you can do to strengthen and tone the muscles under the skin, offering you a bit of support. One exercise that you can do for your cheeks is to put your thumbs on the back part of the fleshy part of the cheeks, just under the cheekbones. Using your fingertips, grab onto as much flesh as possible. Now, pull the flesh away from your face and use your cheek muscles to pull it back into place. Imagine that you are crushing a piece of fruit using just your cheeks. Repeat 20 times each day.
