One of the biggest problem areas that women have is trying to figure out how to lose weight in our thighs. This one area seems to take the longest amount of time.

Many will give up the fight to get rid of that fat in their thighs, but don’t let yourself fall into that group. There are ways that you can effectively lose weight in your thighs.

1. Focus on burning fat.

Work on burning fat all over your body. This is done using aerobic activity. If you can get your heart pumping and air moving through your lungs, you can have fat start melting away.

Eventually you will see the results in your thighs. Don’t use just one aerobic activity. Use several types and mix them up frequently.

2. Monitor your diet.

What you eat is going to affect the amount of fat that you burn. If you eat a lot of protein, you are going to be providing your body with something that will give you more muscle. Don’t cut back drastically on the amount of food you eat.

Don’t cut back on the number of times you eat per day. If you eat more often during the day, you will find that your body decides it doesn’t need to store as much fat because it knows that you aren’t going to starve it.

3. Drink plenty of water.

When you work hard doing aerobic activity, fat is going to start dissipating. It needs to work its way out of your system, though. What is going to make this happen is drinking a lot of water. Not only will it push fat and toxins out of your body, it will also let your body know that there isn’t a drought going on.

When your body is deprived of water, it feels it needs to retain it and it also conserves it, using a minimal amount to perform your bodies basic functions. If you drink more, you will lose more water. This means that you will also be losing some of the water weight around your thighs.

4. Build muscles in your thighs and buttocks.

The best exercise for this is:

The Plie Squat

Start standing with feet wider than shoulders and turned out so inner thighs face forward, hands clasped in front of chest. Tuck pelvis under and lower down into a wide-legged squat aiming to get thighs parallel to floor. Perform with or without a weight…Return back to start. That’s one rep. Do 15 reps then continue to your next move.

As you build muscle here, you will have more than toning going on. If you increase your muscle mass, you increase your metabolism. If you increase your metabolism, you increase your bodies ability to burn fat.
