Eating a balanced diet and reducing calorie intake by 250 to 500 calories each day can lead to weight loss of 1/2 to 1 pound per week. A healthy diet includes lean meats, grains and produce. Foods that cause water retention, such as those containing high amounts of salt or sugar, should be avoided, as should alcohol, as it contains empty calories and slows down metabolism.

An exercise that targets the face is the cheek flattener, where the cheeks are partially filled with air and the lips squeezed together. That position is held for 10 seconds, and then the air is moved from cheek to cheek for 10-second intervals. Another exercise involves tilting the head straight back, then lowering and raising the lower jaw for 25 repetitions. Aerobic exercises such as biking, swimming and gardening done three to five times per week burn calories and fat. Strength training through resistance exercises added two to three times per week builds muscle and burns additional fat.
