Every woman alive wants a slim, sexy body… and there is no place more coveted than lean legs and thighs. Many women suffer from being out of proportion, or, having large thighs and a skinny upper body. Others, have problems with cellulite or jiggly “thunder thighs”.
There is no way to deny the fact that society is very concerned about external beauty and looking great. The media has shown us what the perfect body is “supposed” to look like and it’s slim, toned and curvy all at the same time. It’s certainly a tough act to follow, but by doing the right things, at the right times, you too can get a slim and very sexy body.
Most women have a very common problem of storing a lot of fat in their thighs and hips before any other part of their bodies. It seems that everything rushes to be stored there and not evenly throughout the whole body. This is most likely to do with our evolutionary past, and the thighs simply being a good place for women to store fat.
Some also claim that it’s related to genetics. This is often said because some people have an even amount of weight storied in different areas of their bodies, while others only seem to gain it in very specific areas. Which can result in an uneven or out of proportion look.
With proper training and dieting, you can achieve a very attractive and athletic look regardless of your body type.
First you need to realize that there is no amount of crunches or squats or running you can do to burn fat if you don’t have a good diet to go with it. The only people who can get away with eating a pizza and then burning the fat with 2 intense hours at the gym are those who have low body fat and want to maintain it, but if you have a high level of body fat and you expect to get rid of it with nothing but exercise, you are going to be very disappointed.
The truth is that if you had to choose between a good diet and exercise in order to lose fat, you would have to pick the diet. The problem with doing nothing but dieting is that you are going to end up looking slim but not toned. The result of good dieting and no exercise is not very attractive, so the best thing is to combine both if you want to have good results that will last long. Remember that another important benefit to doing this is that your health will also improve.
Your workouts need to be intense and cardio should be the main focus because this kind of exercise burns a lot of fat. You need to combine that with a very clean diet that is low on carbs and sugars. Get rid of the diet sodas, the chocolate and the junk food. You can have a cheat day on the weekends, but this means eating a slice of cheese cake or having a chocolate bar. If you eat a gallon of ice cream on your cheat day you are ruining your gains completely.
The reason sugar is a big “no no”,is because it causes a spike in your blood sugar level. When this happens, your pancreas become stimulated and releases a hormone called Insulin. This hormone is tasked with the job of lowering your blood sugar levels by removing the sugar from your blood and storing it.
One of the places it stores this excess sugar is in your liver. However, the storage space in your liver is limited and becomes full very quickly. After that, it stores some in your muscles. But, like your liver, this also gets full quickly… so… the final, and worst place that it stores the sugar – is in your fat cells!
It shuttles all the excess sugar and is stored as glucose in your fat cells, to be “used at a later time”. In reality, if you continue to eat a lot of sugar, it just builds up and up and up. And, soon enough, the fat piles onto your body. So definitely avoid sugar.
Drinking plenty of water is also going to help you and the most important thing is that you split your current three means a day and turn them into six meals. This doesn’t mean that you will increase the amount of food you eat. What you will do is take those 3 meals and distribute them into six smaller servings. Eating more times a day is one of the best ways to increase your metabolism and turn your body into a fat burning machine. Just make sure that you eat clean with plenty of fish, fruits and vegetables on your diet.
Start by doing these simple things, step-by-step, and you will reduce much of the fat stored around your hips and thighs.
