Isn’t it amazing how your thighs fat will willingly expand but seems to never want to shrink? Well if you feel that your thighs are consistently getting bigger while the rest of your body is getting smaller then you are not alone.
So many women including my wife seem to focus on trying to “work” their thighs to a smaller size. The problem is working your thighs only does two things: tone the muscles or build muscle size. Your thighs fat problem is an issue we will carefully discuss in this post.
“Another great photo that has nothing to do with this post but I know how many women who wear wraps around their thighs because of cellulite or because they are simply just not happy with their thighs. Enjoy life and don’t let your thighs determine who you are or what you do!”
Let’s face it we have fat all over our bodies and excess fat will build up on your back, arms, stomach and yes even your thighs. In today’s world everyone leads a very busy and hectic lifestyle and let’s face it losing weight alone is very hard. The older we get the less exercise we tend to want to do or rather the less physical activity that is going to cause us to break a sweat.
We you have to understand Is that it took months if not years to get your thighs to the size that they are and if you are not happy with your body it’s going to take time and effort to get the thighs to the way you want them.
Since women naturally store more fat in their hips and thighs area eating excessive calories and not exercising or being active only causes the problem of fat thighs to get worse. Getting the leaner slimmer thighs is going to mean getting that extra layer of fat to come off which can only be done by lowering your overall body fat content.
Exercises for Thigh Fat Loss
I have heard so many women discussing which exercises they have or are doing for fat loss in their thighs. Up to this point I know of no exercises that will work the fat off any particular area of the body. Thigh fat is no different from the fat that is everywhere else on your body, it “CAN’T BE SPOT REDUCED.”
As much as women would love to think that they can just walk in the gym and to thigh exercises and the fat will magically disappear it just will never happen. What will happen instead is that you will spend countless hours and days in the gym to only become discouraged from working out all together.
80% is What You Eat
Just as weight gain comes for eating too much it is proven that majority of a person’s weight loss comes from about 80% or more of what a person eats. Exercises don’t make you gain weight or really lose weight for that matter but is just an extra tool to in the fight. The real focus needs to be on what and how much you eat. If you are gaining weight it simply means you are eating too much and calories are being stored as fat all over your body including those thighs.
“There’s no secret that dieting and exercise are the key to fat loss. However, exercising and thinking that you will lose weight even if you don’t make changes in your eating habits usually ends up in you becoming discourage. You simply just can’t exercise enough to burn all the calories you eat.”
What Should You Do?
In most cases I have found that by simply reducing your calorie intake, walking, and working out usually cures the problem. I know it just sounds too simple and generic that it can’t be the truth but it is. When I say reduce your calorie intake I am not saying to simply skip a meal or anything but rather if you consistently eat 2000 calories per day try going down to 1750 per day. Do this for a week and see if the weight loss is occurs. If not drop your calorie intake down to 1600 and so on, the fact is your body needs less calories than you think it does.
Walking and exercise will give you that extra push you need to get over the hump. Since you are not going to get your calorie intake measured exactly right the extra calories you burn from exercising will help create a calorie deficit causing your body to burn fat a fuel.
How Long Does It Take
Sadly there is not a time table anyone can give you as to how long it will take to lose the fat in your thighs. The fact is your body chooses where stored fat will be pulled from to use as fuel. What you are in control of is how much of a deficit you can create to proper diet and exercise so really how long it takes is up to you and how much weight you need to loss.
For someone who has 25 or more pounds they may see results faster simply because they have more weight to lose than say someone who only has 15lbs. Remember your thighs fat is the same is the fat all over your body and losing it will only come from creating a calorie deficit. There are exercises to help tone the thighs but again they have NOTHING to do with the fat loss in that area.
