The term “love handles” is a bit of a misnomer. In fact, when it comes to the sections of fat on the sides and front of your belly, there’s no love lost. Love handles are zones of “stubborn fat,” the first place guys gain it and the last it disappears.
Flanks fat are deposits of fat that form along the sides of your waist, or your Love handles. These fat deposits can develop quickly and are difficult to eliminate. Flanks fat typically form as a result of poor diet and lack of exercise.
