Reasons for fat accumulation on thighs
Genetic predisposition and female sex hormones are responsible for the accumulation of fatty tissue on the thighs. The thighs and hip area are the most sensitive areas for the storage of fatty tissue used in case of starvation and when a woman is pregnant. The enlarged thigh circumference caused by the accumulation of fatty tissue in this area is the body’s natural storage and protection for “worse times”.
Of course, fat tissue will not be deposited on the thighs (or anywhere else) if we follow a low-calorie, healthy and balanced diet. The cause of an excessively large thigh circumference is, in many cases, a sedentary lifestyle and an inadequate diet, based on highly processed food, poor in fibre, vegetables and fruit.
The first way to lose weight from your thighs, therefore, is to limit your daily calorie intake with food and to move from behind your desk every now and then. White bread, sugary fizzy drinks and sweet and salty snacks should be eliminated from your diet. It is best to eat five small meals a day, based on healthy foods such as vegetables, lean meat and dairy. If the body is supplied with fewer calories, it will start to burn stored fat – primarily from the thighs and hip area. It is also a good idea to keep your body properly hydrated, i.e. to drink at least 2 litres of non-carbonated mineral water a day, However, if there is already a problem with an excessively large thigh circumference and you want to reduce it, physical exercise will help.
Exercises to slim down thighs
The best exercises for slimming the thighs are squats, scissors, step-ups and jumping jacks.
Walking at a brisk pace (at least half an hour a day), cycling and running are also useful. Exercises should be done regularly and care should be taken to ensure correct technique.
Jumping jacks, running and fast cycling will help to get rid of excess body fat from all parts of the body, not only from the thighs, they will also improve the condition and efficiency of the body. Scissors, squats and jumping jacks shape, shape and slim down especially the thigh area (the muscles in this body region work most intensively during their performance), therefore they are especially recommended to people wondering how to lose weight from thighs. These exercises should even be performed daily. The effects will be noticeable after a month or so of regular exercise.
If you have a sedentary job (for example in an office), it is a good idea to get up from behind your desk every now and then and do a few bends and squats. This will improve circulation, help lose weight from the thighs and is a great preventative measure against cellulite.
A guarantee of successful slimming of the thighs is a healthy diet (it should be permanently introduced to our table – if after some time we return to old eating habits, the yoyo effect is basically guaranteed) and regular physical exercise, walking, running and cycling.
What can excess fat on the thighs result in?
Thighs that are rich in fatty tissue put stress on joints and bones, which can lead to degenerative changes in the joints – especially the knee joints. Therefore, it is worthwhile to devote half an hour to daily exercise to ensure that you lose weight from your thighs and change your diet to one that promotes a slim figure. This will be beneficial not only for the appearance of the thighs, but for the well-being and condition of the entire body.
