Great weekly tips to keep you healthy and fit


When it comes to losing weight, one of the main areas women like to target is in the thighs. I can bet that at least once you wondered hot to lose weight off your tights. While a bit more fat on the hips or on your bum may be desirable, thighs generally dictate what size of jeans you can wear and how good you look in them. They also dictate how good your lower body looks in general. Big thighs can make your bum look flat and your lower legs disproportionate.

Losing fat stored in the legs area doesn't have to be a difficult task. It all depends on your natural body type. Some women will find that the fat in their upper legs is the most stubborn to go, while others may find that it's the first noticeable area to reduce in size.

One of the most common questions women ask is whether they can reduce just the size of their legs while keeping everything else the same. The answer is both yes and no. It's generally agreed amongst the fitness community that losing fat affects your whole body and it's nearly impossible to target specific areas, you can however do workouts and exercises to reduce the size by toning down your muscle mass there.

How Can I Lose Weight In My Thighs
While it might sound counter productive, the trick to slimming down your legs is actually to build up muscle density in the area. To do this, work on toning exercises specifically those engaging your quads and hamstrings. Because you will have denser muscles in this area, they will be a lot more "compact", meaning the overall size of the thighs will be visibly reduced.

Squats are quite possibly one of the most important exercises in a woman's fitness repertoire simply because they engage all of the major muscle groups in your legs leaving you with a curvy, but slim body, shape that many will be jealous of at the beach.

What's even more important, squats isolate your quads really well, allowing you to tighten those muscles as described in the section above.

To complete a squat properly and safely, start off in the standing position with your legs slightly wider than your shoulders width. Ensuring that your back is straight, slowly bend your knees down until your bum is nearly touching the floor. When you're low enough to feel the burn in your thighs, hold the position for a second or two and then start making your way back up to the starting position, remembering to keep your back straight.

To make sure you are tightening your muscles, rather than building muscle mass (which will result in bigger thighs), you need to do a lot of repetitions, and make sure you're not doing any weighted squats. You can start by doing 5 sets of 10 squats, and then slowly add more repetitions to each set as you get more comfortable with it.

Lose Weight All Over Your Body
Although targeting the thighs specifically for weight loss is difficult, you can simply start losing weight all over your body which will result in your thighs slimming down too. Through proper dieting and exercising, a lot of women have been able to lose weight in their thighs, and maintain the size they have achieved.

In the majority of cases, women that complain about having disproportionately large thighs actually carry a fair bit of fat in other areas of the body too. Focusing on the whole body will not only make your legs slimmer, but you will also be at a healthier BMI and feel much better about yourself.

If you haven't already, it's worth considering following the 3 week diet plan to help you set a schedule of exercises and meal plans for every day in the 3 weeks. The hardest part for most women to lose weight is to actually set a plan and stick to it. By having one already laid out perfectly for you to follow makes the journey much more pleasant and considerably easier.

Final Words
Instead of focusing on the size of your thighs, our advice would be to step back from the mirror and see if you would benefit from a full body slimming down. 9 times out of 10, the answer is a yes but because extra fat on the legs is much more noticeable (especially in the summer time), it makes them much more pronounced from your perspective.
