Neck fat/"double-chin"

I'm realistic about my weight, and I know it's going to take a lot of work to slim down.. looking at borrowing someone's P90 program. BUT. The one thing I never see brought up is how to get rid of that double chin/neck fat. So how do I go about getting rid of it?

I've heard if you tilt your head upward and push your lower jaw out and hold it for a bit, that works as exercise.. I feel it in the sides of my jaw, but I've been doing that for quite some time now and seeing no noticeable change.

There is no site specific reduction.

You can't target neck fat vs belly fat vs leg fat vs anything else.

You're going to have to lower your overall body fat percentage, which will decrease the amount of fat in your neck and everywhere else

Does this mean that exercises designed to "target" certain areas are bs, then?

Exercises that are meant to build certain muscles no. Ones that are meant to spot reduce fat, YES.

What NFM124 said. Doing crunches will build your abs but doing crunches wont flatten out your stomach. The only way to get a flat stomach is to lose fat and the best way to do that is diet, but workout does play some role, just not as big of a one as people think. Its mainly diet for fat loss

Nifty. Thanks for the info, guys and gals. I'm going to try the P90 program soon, hopefully that'll help me shed some of this.

Normally, it is not necessary at all to lose too much weight to lose the fats around the face.
Even within the first 5 lbs at most, people will notice your slimmer face.
This is why most people would say you lost a lot of weight even though you only lost about 5 lbs max. They look at your face first.

If you don't think your face it slimmer then most likely it is genetics. It can't be helped.

But don't worry so much about it. Round faces are cute and double chins can be lost to the point they're not so obvious.

Even people with naturally slim face wear makeup to make their face appear slimmer and in some defined shape. Use bronzer for slimness.
Also, stretching the neck in all direction really helps.

Good luck!
