Do you have bloated cheeks and feel bothered about them?
Well, you have a pretty good reason to feel conscious about them. Only babies and young children can look cute with fat cheeks. They can get away with the chipmunk look and still be smothered with kisses for having those round, plump cheeks.
Grown-ups with fat cheeks look anything but adorable. Adults (and even some children) usually regard them as a source of shame. But the good news is that fat cheeks can be deflated with the help of a positive lifestyle modification.
Fat Cheeks: Why You Have Them
One powerful way to reduce cheek fat caused by these 3 factors is by doing face exercises on a daily basis, but performing them alone isn’t enough. You have to do a lifestyle check to determine and correct the underlying causes.
Lack of sleep and too much stress can both be helped by exercise. You have to fix these problems if you want to get rid of your fat cheeks as both health abuses make your face look tired and swollen.
Water retention, and in this case, facial edema is a common culprit of enlarged cheeks. This can be caused by a medical problem, so be sure to go to your physician and find out whether you have serious health issues or not.
Water retention is also caused by poor circulation, dehydration, allergies, candida albicans infection and lack of sleep. Water retention can be prevented by eliminating what caused it in the first place and by eating healthy foods.
Fat cheeks give away your age and your poor lifestyle, so it would be good to do something about them for the sake of your self-esteem and overall health and well-being.
Lose Chubby Cheeks Without Having To Go To Clinics Or Salons
Wondering how to get rid of chubby cheeks?
Cheek fat removal doesn’t have to be painful or expensive. You just have to watch what you put into your mouth and make it a point to keep all your body’s muscles moving, especially those on your face.
Working up a sweat by doing cardio exercises will help a bit in losing face fat, but it’s not enough to bring out those high cheekbones you’ve always dreamed of.
If you want to lose cheek fat then you’d better get those buccinators (cheekbone muscles that form into apples when you smile) flexing and moving.
Try to see if you need to lose weight. If you do then you would have to make time for an intense daily aerobic workout. You will not lose those unattractive fat cheeks by solely doing face exercises without physical exercise or correcting your diet.
If you are a skinny person with a lot of face fat, you would also do well by jogging or brisk walking 30 minutes a day to improve your circulation
Doing exercises for the face is not just a very effective; it’s also a very affordable way to reduce face fat. People who have fat cheeks usually have double chin is well, so make sure that your face toning program should also include double chin exercises.

By now you should have already made up your mind to exercise both your face and your body. If you’re overweight then you should devote an hour of sweat-inducing exercise and 15 minutes for facial exercise each day.
You should allot the same amount of time for face exercises if you’re skinny, but it would be enough for you to do aerobic exercise for just 30 minutes a day.
De-puff your cheeks by cutting your salt intake. Better if you’re the one who prepares your own food.
That way you’d know how much salt your food contains since you’re the one who whipped it up, as opposed to dining out and wondering the whole time how much salt they used on your ordered dish, only to find out that they used way too much salt the following morning when you see your face more bloated than usual.
Try to keep a food diary to determine which foods trigger edema. Some people notice that they bloat after eating foods with gluten or consuming dairy.
If this is your case then you would have to undergo an elimination diet for at least 3 to 6 months, then slowly reintroduce the offending food and notice if your face, abs, or legs still bloat after eating a small portion of what you were previously allergic to.
Supplementing with MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) and quercetin, consuming enough omega 3 fats, and eating a lot of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables while on the elimination diet will help you overcome your food allergy after three months or so.
Eating lots of fresh produce will also help reverse the damages left by stress and supply the needed nutrients to build face muscle and collagen for a leaner, shapelier face with a rosy glow.
Consume moderate amounts of raw plant fats everyday to help your skin moist and supple. The other great thing about raw plant-based fats is that they do not cause weight gain.
Yes you read that right. The enzymes present in plant foods are still intact if they are uncooked or heated below 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
These enzymes will metabolize all the fat, protein and carbohydrates present in the food itself.
But don’t go stocking on raw, cold-pressed oils such as flax, coconut and extra virgin olive oil only to use them for cooking because they won’t be raw fats anymore, and if they’re cooked fats you can be sure that your body will store them and make an unsightly appearance in your tummy and face.
Tell yourself that all you need is discipline and not a facial liposuction to get rid of extra fat in your cheeks. Just follow these tips and you’ll have a pair of those sexy Hollywood cheekbones in a matter of four weeks.
