How to Lose Weight off the Nose

Save

Losing weight in one specific area of your body is unlikely. However, if you are aiming for a trimmer looking nose, reducing facial weight and generalized bloating may help. Water retention can make your face look larger or more bloated -- therefore reducing water weight can lead to a thinner looking face. Starting a weight reduction or diet plan is also helpful, as facial weight loss is often the first area where results are noticed.

Step 1

Drink more water during the day, up to eight glasses. When your body feels dehydrated it may actually hold on to fluids and give you a bloated look.

Step 2

Stop drinking alcohol as it may give your face a bloated appearance. Replace caffeinated beverages with water or seltzer as caffeine dehydrates your body.

Step 3

Look for hidden sources of salt in your food -- salt causes bloating. Some foods high in sodium include fast-food, fried snacks, Chinese food and canned soups. Check for low sodium versions or cook these foods at home where you can control the salt levels.

Step 4

Cut 250 calories from your diet each day. This a safe amount of calorie cutting to achieve weight loss. Use a calorie counting chart to calculate how many calories you're eating now, and what could be cut out. Some common foods that can be replaced include soft drinks for water, high fat desserts for low fat yogurt, or having cereal instead of a muffin for breakfast.

Step 5

Begin an exercise routine. Make it realistic so you will not set yourself up for failure. A fast 30 minute walk per day is a good place to start. Purchase or rent an exercise video you may enjoy doing at home in the evening or before work.
