Methods to know how to lose thighs

Losing weight in your thighs and hips before the summer is possible. Let’s take a look at how sports coaches can help you achieve this goal.

Targeted exercise
No diet alone will allow you to lose thighs and hips as quickly as if you accompany it with a targeted exercise routine to slim down these areas of the body. You will also need to identify whether it is localised excess fat or cellulite, or both.

To lose excess weight in this area and between the thighs, the following exercises are known to be effective:- squats,- lunges,- boxers’ dance rope

There are also sports such as:- fast walking,- body fitness,- dynamic swimming,- cycling- running.

In order to achieve visible results on your figure, you should train two to three times a week for at least 45 minutes. The so-called “chair exercise” is also suitable: you lean against a wall as if you were sitting and hold this position for one minute.

To get rid of cellulite, there are several alternatives to the sports exercises mentioned above: the palpate-roll massage carried out in beauty centres or as a self-massage with a slimming gel, seaweed or coffee grounds wraps; there is also homeopathy and acupuncture, which have helped many to improve the blood circulation in this area.

However, don’t expect visible progress in 1 week! The body needs time to adopt a different rhythm and to change its eating habits.

Alone or with others
Sometimes you may find training alone rather sad, and this can sometimes lead to a lack of motivation and perseverance. In this case, don’t hesitate to ask a friend to join you in doing sports or targeted exercises. Or form a group and set a common goal.

You can also join a gym for a group cardio class a few times a week or book a fitness coach to follow you through your personalised programme, if your budget allows.

You can also find out about a method called “chrononutrition”; this is a slimming programme that you can follow online or in an office with a consultant, which was developed by Dr Delabos to sculpt the figure by distributing body fat.

Useful dietary changes
A low-fat, low-salt, high-protein diet can also make a significant difference when trying to lose weight in an area affected by cellulite. Focus on foods that contain fibre (vegetables, fruit, whole starchy foods); they lower blood sugar levels that promote fat accumulation and act as a bit of an appetite suppressant because they are nutritious.

Include spinach, fish, lentils and bananas (in small quantities) in your menu, as they are rich in potassium, a mineral that rids the body of excess water. Protein keeps muscles strong, so choose foods that contain protein (fish, white meat from poultry, eggs, egg whites, lean ham and fat-free dairy products). Beware of quick sugars and processed foods, which are often high in fat and sugar.
