Post Losing fat on the face

Is there any excercises I can do to get rid of the fat on my face, especially in the cheek area because every time I smile, the fat just sort of bulges out and it makes it look like I have really chubby cheeks. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, there isn't any way to reduce fat in just one part of your body. The only ways to lose fat are cardiovascular exercise abd dieting, neither of which allows you to control where the fat comes off. So, by dieting or exercising, you may or may not lose fat off your face.

BUT... I bet you have a beautiful smile as it is. Everyone's cheeks bulge out when they smile... that's what a smile is!

Spot reduction of fat from any particular body part is a myth. There is only general overall reduction of body fat which is achieved by:

a) clean diet, consisting of whole, nutrient dense foods
b) strength/resistance training
c) cardio training

You will notice a difference in facial features when you adopt an exercise-oriented, clean diet way of life. As an example, a friend of mine recently lost 40 pounds of body fat by adhering to a) b) and c) above and he looks "thinner" in the face (a double chin has been banished) and he looks years younger. More importantly, he is fitter, stronger, healthier and progressing towards his goal body composition.
