How to Get Rid of Upper Thigh Fat

1)    Watch what you eat.  Apart from the obvious, one of the first things you need to do if you want to get rid of upper thigh fat is to cut out foods which give you no nutrition, but plenty of calories.  These include things like sodas, potato chips, and boiled sweets and candy.  Eating these can never do you any good, and they can be easily replaced with healthier snacks that provide energy and far fewer calories!

2)    Start exercising.  There’s no two ways about it – if you want to get rid of upper thigh fat you’re going to have to exercise.  Diet is not enough.  You can’t specifically target thigh fat, but building muscle in this area will help you to exercise, and improve the rate at which you burn thigh fat.  Try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day – that means 30 minutes of your heart beating fast, and working up a good sweat.  Go for a brisk walk if you’re not that fit, or take up cycling if you can handle a bit of a workout.

3)    Cook for yourself.  Avoid fast food and instant microwave dinners.  These contain loads of calories and lots of fat.  It does take more time, and cooking doesn’t come naturally to some people, but in the end it’ll be worth it!  Get hold of a calorie sheet and make sure you know how many calories are going into dinner at least – then extend this to cover all of your meals.  Cooking and eating healthy food is one of the most important things you need to do in order to get rid of upper thigh fat.

4)    Dial back on the sauce.  Alcohol contains a lot of calories – even ‘light’ beers and white wine.  White spirits are better, but no alcohol is best.  If you have to drink, mix your white wine with water or drink spirits mixed with water to limit your calorie intake.

5)    Cut out the fried stuff.  Making this simple change to your diet can reduce your intake of saturated fats and calories significantly.  Eat foods that are baked, boiled or grilled – fish and chicken are great if you sprinkle them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and grill them for about 12-15 minutes.  Add some steamed vegetables and brown rice and you have a healthy, low-fat dinner.

Once you’ve got your diet and a little fitness going, it’s time to start working out those thigh muscles.  Follow the steps in the helpful video at the top of the article for more info to get you started.
