Smart Tips To Get Rid Of Fatty Thighs/Laps

Having too much of fat on the thighs can be some what frustrating and embarrassing to the extent of you not feeling too comfortable putting on bunk shorts. Being overweight makes you sluggish and increases your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Losing overall body fat will not only give you a boost in energy and stamina; it will improve your appearance and overall health, warding off the risks of any disease.  A weight-loss goal of 1 to 2 pounds a week is reasonable, which means in 30 days you can lose 4 to 8 pounds approx.(3.6Kg). Losing leg fat in 30 days requires a plan of healthy eating, cardiovascular workouts and leg toning exercises.

EXERCISE
Perform 30 to 60 minutes of aerobics exercise five days a week during the course of 30 days. Aerobics exercise burns fat speeding up the weight loss process over dieting alone. Consider doing exercises that also target the legs such as squats , running, hiking and bicycling. You can also try these - Good morning exercises

DO SQUATS AND LUNGES
Do squats two to three days a week over the month. Squats along with lunges are the best exercises for the thighs. Start by standing with your legs a little wider than hip-width. Bend your knees, shifting your weight back as if you're going to sit down. Don't allow your knees to extend over the toes. Straighten your legs to return to the start position. Add resistance by holding dumbbells or a barbell.

Perform lunges two to three days a week for 30 days. Stand with your legs hip-width apart. Step forward with your right leg, bending the knee as shift your weight forward. Keep your right knee over the ankle. Push back with the right foot to return to the start position. If you have bad knees, step backward instead of forward into the lunge. Add resistance by holding a dumbbell in each hand. Perform the lunge to the side to target the adductors and abductors -- inner and outer thighs.



 
FORGET THE ELEVATOR(TAKE THE STAIRS)
Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator during the next 30 days. Using the stairs burns fat and tones the muscles of the legs. It can also cut your risk of premature death by 15 percent.

EAT SMART
Eat a healthy, low-calorie diet. Eating more calories than your body need leads to fat gain. You can't starve yourself in the morning and expect to eat double ration in the afternoon. The body will use the amount of calories required at that moment to run different functions in the body and store the remaining as fat. You can cut your calories by eliminating sugary and fatty foods from your diet (No more Buns, Puff Puff, Meat Pies etc). Measure your portion sizes to avoid overeating. Eating fresh, healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables (Orange, Mangoes, Carrot, cabbage, Tomatoes etc), whole grains(Brown Rice, Oats, Millet etc) and lean proteins such as poultry products(Eggs, Chicken).

Continue eating healthy and exercising beyond the 30 days to maintain your weight loss and health
