Avoiding a problem double chin can be difficult work, especially if you have a genetic predisposition toward one. Yes, sometimes double chins simply run in the family. When this is the case, a double chin still can be avoided. It just takes a little extra concentration.
Proper dieting can be helpful when trying to stop a double chin before it starts or get rid of a double chin that already exists. However, very often a double chin is not an obesity problem. In other words, people who are otherwise slim can somehow or another develop a fat face. While this is a dirty deal much of it goes back to that genetic disposition thing.
Therefore, if you are already thin it would seem reasonable that getting thinner wouldn’t erase your double chin. However, many people in this situation have been help by making a couple of dietary changes. These helpful changes are as follows:
- Changing from higher fat meats, such as beef to lower fat meets such as chicken
- Avoiding butter, instead use a butter substitute, and, probably most importantly,
- Increasing the intake of water
Other than these basic things no dietary changes seem to help in slimming down the face, unless of course, the double chinned person needs to slim down altogether. However, as we have already stated this is not always the case. In truth, double chins and expansive waistlines don’t always go hand in hand.
Countless people have found relief from double chin problems by doing exercises designed to eradicate the double chin. Basically, there are four double chin exercises all which can be found and even illustrated on this website. Double chin exercises are exercises which are geared to increase the muscle structure below the chin and in the upper neck area.
