Secrets on how to lose weight fast

Ways to Lose Leg Fat

Big or thick legs can seem to cause a problem when it comes to summer outfits such as miniskirts, shorts, or form fitting wear.

Thighs can change the look of your attire one way or the other. If it’s thinner thighs you’re after, it’s not a lost cause. With a little effort, anyone can lose leg fat and gain a tighter walk.

A big factor in losing leg fat is what is eaten. If you think that slice of cheesecake you ate will go straight to your thighs, you’re probably right.

Some people with larger thighs may be genetically predisposed for them. Also, many women naturally have a higher percentage of body fat going to this area. What you eat will either be used by your body or stored as fat. And what is stored as fat has a high chance of going straight to your thighs if your body is designed this way.

One way to control the fat that is stored in your thighs is by monitoring the foods that you eat. A diet rich in lean proteins and healthy fruits and vegetables has more of a chance to be efficiently burned by your body than foods high in saturated fats, oils, and refined carbohydrates.

To slim your legs and thighs, eliminate sugars, white breads and other baked goods, and white rice. Replace them with fiber rich carbohydrates and drink at least eight glasses of water each day. Snack on high protein foods such as nuts instead of potato chips.

By restructuring your diet, you provide your body with the fuel it needs to burn fat efficiently. You also switch to foods that will make you feel fuller longer and decrease your appetite and the probability of overeating.

In addition to a healthier diet, exercise will be your fastest route to reducing fat on your legs. Focus on high intensity activities that work the legs, such as swimming, walking, and running. If you are new to exercise, start slow at a rate of ten minutes of activity a day. Work your way up to a minimum of 30 minutes a day for five days a week. Intense activity such as these burn fat overall and help to shape the legs in the process.

Strength training and muscle toning exercises should be done in conjunction with high intensity cardio for optimum results. While you can’t spot reduce fat from any area of the body, an overall strength training program that includes exercises specifically for the legs will help to shape them while overall body fat is being lost.

Exercises such as squats and lunges will target the quadriceps and hamstrings—the major muscle groups in the legs. In addition, variations of these exercises can be done to target the inner and outer thighs as well.

When performing strength training on your legs, avoid working them out every day and be sure to allow muscle groups to rest. Consider alternating front leg muscles with back leg muscles on different days and allow off days in between. Rest days allow the muscles that are torn from the strength training process to rebuild and grow stronger. Exercising daily would not allow time for muscle repair and growth.

By following these weight loss tips, you will be well on your way to shapelier legs and a more confident walk.

Note that you can't lose leg fat without losing fat from the rest of your body. Take care of yourself by eating right and exercising, and your legs will shape up fast!
