If you’re like most people, you’ve probably been having a difficult time finding how to get rid of inner thigh fat. You may have done a whole lot of exercise, a whole lot of different diets but it just seems that getting those slim, slender and attractive thighs is impossible.
And to add to the problem, most of the solutions that are proposed to you either online or on TV that promise that you can burn 20 pounds overnight with just 10 minutes of work are pushing false information that doesn’t work.
The truth is that the exercise tactics and diets that actually work for this purpose of burning off thigh fat are mostly hidden from the general public. Keep reading to find out what those ugly truths really are.
The myth of spot reduction
If you ask most people who have a hard time burning off thigh fat what exercises are best to burn off fat from their thighs, they will likely name you exercises that target muscles in and around thighs. The problem is the human body will not burn off fat from one specific place. That’s not what it’s designed for. Instead, whenever the elements for fat loss are in place, the body burns off fat from all over.
Spot reduction is the idea that fat loss can be targeted with specific exercises and unfortunately, it just isn’t true. If it were, there would be thousands of guys with six pack abs AND man boobs. It just doesn’t work. The reason that people try to burn off stomach fat by doing thousands of crunches is because it is one area where fat tends to accumulate more. Thighs are another are that accumulates fat so thigh and buttocks exercises are overused.
The goal should be overall fat loss, not localized fat loss
The real fat loss power comes from losing fat from all over the body and not trying desperately to burn off fat from in and around the thighs. Because fat accumulates more around the thighs and abdomen it is also the first place where fat will be lost during an effective diet and exercise regime.
So just what is the best way to lose fat from your entire body? Well it might sound cliché, but it is as it always has been: diet and exercise. However, where many people go wrong is what type of diet they follow as well as what types of exercises they perform. For example, doing endless cardio will be a whole lot less effective than doing a few short full body resistance training exercises. In a similar fashion, people who go for a very low calorie diet will get less beneficial results than people who follow an intermittent fasting diet plan.
Stay away from fads
The fact of the matter is that for as long as humans have been alive on this planet, there have been slim people and there have been fat people. That means that there is no new gimmick, exercise machine or diet pill that will change the world of fat loss. Those who overeat junk food and live a sedentary lifestyle will gain weight and those who exercise properly and eat healthy will burn off belly fat, thigh fat, what have you.
