A fat loss diet cannot guarantee you Angelina Jolie’s cheekbones or Johnny Depp’s jawline. What I can promise you is that if you follow my guidelines, you will definitely lose face fat and add more definition to your cheeks and jawline.


You might feel uneasy when taking pictures, thinking that the camera might add extra pounds to your face. But you need not worry! I have an effective guide on how to reduce face fat to get a chiseled jawline without going under the knife. I have lost 33kg of my weight in 1 year with exercise and healthy eating.

What Causes Chubby Cheeks?

  • Lacking the necessary nutrients in your system
  • High consumption of sugar, salt, and carbs
  • Sleeplessness and high-stress levels
  • Water retention resulting from a bad choice of diet and constant dehydration
  • Genetic factors
  • Being overweight

Can I Reduce Fat from Specific Body Areas?

No! “Spot-Fat Reduction” is not a real thing. Muscle tissues and fat tissues are entirely different. For building specific muscles in the body, you can undergo spot training, but the fat in those areas cannot be burnt specifically.
So, if you think abdominal exercise will help you lose belly fat, that is not happening. There is an effective scientific reasoning behind this. Muscles cannot regulate the fat deposits surrounding them.

You can do sit-ups to strengthen your abdominal muscles, but they cannot eliminate the fat stored in that region.

So How to Lose Face Fat?

You can only lose face fat specifically if you lose overall body fat. To create a caloric deficit is the first priority whether you want to reduce face, belly, arm or leg fat.

So, when you consume only 2000 calories, but end up burning 3000 calories in a day, you have created a 1000 calorie deficit.

When you want to reduce fat, you have to reduce the overall body fat percentage by creating a calorie deficit. This can be achieved through a proper nutrient-rich diet plan and regular exercise.

Face Fat Loss Tips

1. Stay Away from Alcohol

Wine, beer or hard liquor, they all have the same effect. They tend to dehydrate your body, making your face look bloated.

2. Control Salt Consumption

Keep a check on your salt consumption by avoiding foods loaded with salt. This includes junk food like pizzas, popcorns, and chips. The sodium in salt leads to an appearance of a bloated face due to water retention.

3. Eat Foods Rich in Proteins and Nutrients

Fresh veggies, fruits, and foods loaded with fibers will increase the number of nutrients consumed while keeping a check on the intake of calories. These protein-rich foods are any day a better substitute for salt and sugar loaded foods. Check out these diet plans:

4. Strength Training is the Key

Spend an hour, 4-6 days a week in strength training. Lifting weights will increase the muscle mass. This will, in turn, improve your metabolism and reduce the fat percentage in the body. Check out this workout routine: The 4-Day Workout Split to Maximize Muscle Gain

5. Stay Hydrated

When your body doesn’t get enough water, your face starts appearing bloated due to water retention. You must drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water daily to avoid this.

6. Experiment with Hairstyles

Try out a different hairstyle to suit your face cut. The right hairstyle for a round face makes it look lean and long. I recommend you to watch this video: Top 10 Hairstyle for Round Faces 2014
