Question Targeting Fat Loss?

Hi, I've lost alot of weight this past year, but the fat is being really stubborn on my thighs and hip area. Is there anything I can do to target the weight loss in this area? If you say excersize - what kind would be best?

The one program I saw that seemed to work (this is from some talkshow a number of years ago that was comparing approaches and followed people over a couple of weeks) was weightlifting with, I believe it was, Joyce Vendrall or Vendrell.

I never tried it myself (would have to lose the weight first!).

It might be Joyce Vedral.

Unfortunely, you cannot target fat loss in specific areas of the body. As you lose fat, your genetics decide where it will come off, and how much. You can tone and tighten the mucles in the same area to try and make the area seem more firm, but certain areas tend to be quite stubborn.

For women, it can be nearly impossible to get rid of certain thigh and hip fat. Their bodies are designed to store that fat as fuel for pregnancy, etc... The body doesn't want to give it up all that easy. Men's gut fat is fairly easy to lose in comparison, but also carries a higher health risk. Fat thighs in women, almost carry no health risk when compared to men's fat stomachs.

So basically, you have to eat right and exercise. If the fat is going to come off your thighs and hips, it will come off, otherwise you have to be content with simply being healthier from eating healthier and exercising.

The smaller size is just like the large size, sooner or later there is no more left.
