1. Diet:
Diet is un-arguably a quintessential part of any weight loss regime. To reduce fat, you need to follow the below-mentioned measures:
The most effective methods of reducing fat is not just by following a great diet, but by altering the way you think. You need to learn to differentiate between your cravings for food and real hunger.
Never binge even if you are feeling sad or guilty. It is always good to chew your food well before swallowing it, since it not only helps in digestion, but slows down your eating as well. It is always good to consult your physician and your personal trainer for getting expert help.

2. Exercise:
The next attack on your flabby thighs is exercise. The best way to reduce fat is by including cardio as well as strength training exercises to your workout. Here are some good exercises that can help you in your attack against flabby thighs. To learn the exact procedures, however, you would need expert assistance from instructors from NYC Adventure Boot Camp for women.

  • The outer thigh blaster: it firms the outside of your thighs and hips and strengthens your lower body. Lying on your side, rest your head on your left arm, which should be stretched out above your head. Put your right arm on your right hip. Keeping your legs straight, use your outer thigh muscle to lift the right leg six inches off the floor. Keeping your heel out (opposite of pointing toe) will help you get a better stretch. Slowly lower your leg and repeat 8-12 times on your left side, flat against the floor.
    The inner thigh lifts: it works wonders for the most difficult part to tone in the lower body, the inner thighs. Lie on your left side, flat against the floor. Rest your head on your left upper arm. Bend your right (top) leg at the knee and cross over in front of left leg. Rest your right arm on your right hip. Keep your left leg straight. Using inner thigh muscle (adductor), lift left leg 6 inches off floor. Keep left toe in flexed position (not a pointed position). Exhale (breathe out) as you lift your leg. Using resistance with the inner thigh muscle (not gravity), slowly lower your leg. Inhale (breathe in) as you lower your leg. Repeat exercise for a set of 8. Repeat entire sequence on your right side, step 1-9 (working right adductor muscle). By practicing these exercises regularly, you can tighten and tone down your thighs. Alignment of your body is important for effectiveness, so it’s always better to consult your personal trainer or attend fitness boot camp for proper instructions.
