I need some advice on how to get a slimmer tummy and thighs. Any advice on exercises or meal plans? Also are there any websites that have guides for this sort of thing? Love the site!
Dear Slimmer L
I wish that I had a magic pill or a secret answer for you - what you read about everywhere is true. Unless you have genes like Gisele it's just going to take some old fashioned hard work. Here's the formula; eat 6 small meals a day that are full of protein and low in fat. Exercise regularly, drink lots of water and get ample rest. You should be eating about every 3 hours, so have 3 square meals and then little snacks in between such as; dried fruit, nuts or a smoothie. Oh, and don't eat after 9:00pm. If you are looking to thin out your thighs - cardio is really what's going to do it. Run at least 20-30 minutes 4 times a week to burn fat and calories and combine your runs with machine reps for toning. Your stomach will improve by doing cardio as well. You can't expect to get a six pack until you've burned off the spare tire around your waist. Start out with core strengthening exercises that will work both your abs and back and then concentrate on the 3 major ab areas; lower, upper and obliques. It just takes time. You should start to see results within about 6 weeks - (if you don't cheat). Power to you!
