Overeating and a sedentary lifestyle can quickly add on the pounds. There are many places fat shows on peoples' bodies, including the back of the neck. Having fat here can be embarrassing, feel uncomfortable and is not attractive. But there are things you can do to get rid of the fat on the back of your neck.
Things You'll Need
- Resistance bands
- Lean meats
Exercise at least three times each week. You should exercise for 30 to 45 minutes per workout. You can't target just one part of the body to burn fat. You will need to lose fat all over your body to get rid of fat on the back of your neck. Before exercising you should stretch. Burn fat by riding a bike, walking fast, jumping rope, swimming, dancing, jogging in place, running and using resistance bands. After your cardio routine, you should lift weights for 10 to 30 minutes. Building muscle will help you burn calories throughout the day and help burn fat faster.
Eat nutritious meals three times a day. The foods you eat should be lean meat, fish, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Also drink at least eight glasses of water each day. Water helps flush toxins out of your body and will help you feel full faster. Don't snack on junk food such as cookies, chips, soda and ice cream. Snack on nutritious low-fat foods such as yogurt, fruit, vegetables and pretzels. Nutritious foods will help control cravings throughout the day, keeping you on track with your weight loss. Being able to control your cravings by changing what you eat is the key to losing weight and being healthy.
Rest each night for seven to eight hours. Not getting enough sleep will slow down your metabolism and put stress on your body. Your body will have to work harder to function and will crave more food.
