Do you have fat ankles and want to get rid of it once and for all? There is a new term for fat ankles, which is known as cankles. If you’re not sure what a cankle really is, they are a combination of two words, “ankle” and “calf”. The word “calf” refers to the calf muscle, which is located on the lower back side of the leg. Cankle is defined as an obese or otherwise swollen ankle that blends into the calf muscle with no clear definition.
Fat ankles or cankles can be found in both women and men, young or old. There are a wide variety of reasons for what causes fat to build up around your ankles. Your genes play a role in how much fat your body retains and where it stores extra energy. Obesity and being overweight is another reason because your body stores energy in the form of fat anywhere it can. Water retention is another reason and last of all is diet. These are considered the four main reasons that cankles happen and form.
There are many ways to get rid of fat ankles or cankles, such as exercises, diet and nutrition, improve blood circulation, and of course over-the-counter supplements. The exercises can be done from the comfort of your own home and only takes about 5 to 10 minutes, every 3 days. As for diet and nutrition, there are ways to get rid of the excess water retention in your body. One of the main causes of cankles is poor blood circulation and this can cause your ankles to become more swollen, within time, and become fat. There are a wide variety of techniques to help you improve blood circulation with focusing directly on the lower parts of your legs.
You can find many types of medications, which are sold over-the-counter, but in time, these can become expensive. Some of these medications may cause allergic reactions, depending on the person.
