Women can have a real challenging time losing weight around the hips, butt, and thighs area...
Even Though they may be exercising regularly and/or losing weight in other areas of the body...
This is partly due to genetics as each person distributes fat accumulation differently, but this can also be due to controllable factors such as type of exercise, training methods and a healthful diet.
The dominance of estrogen is one the reasons we store fat in the hips, butt and thigh area. Hormones do play an important role in not only where we store fat, but it also greatly affects our overall level of health so I think it's really important to do the best you can from your end to minimize any unpleasant side effects.
Here are 5 Tips To Help you out...1. INTENSE EXERCISE and WEIGHT TRAINING:Boost your Human Growth Hormone (HGH) naturally at least 3 times a week through Intense Exercise and Maximize it's potential by reducing sugars, and unnecessary carbohydrates at night as HGH is released primarily at night when we are asleep and insulin reduces it's powerful effects.2. VARY YOUR LOWER BODY TRAINING METHODS:This is what I do...I combine heavier lower body weight training with muscular endurance exercises such as supersets or trisets with NO Rest!Some Examples...
Heavy sumo(plié) squats with plank jacks 1 minute, or
or my favorite...a side plank with opposite elbow to knee + Star pushups + DB Swings.
Shuffle touch down squats + Mountain climbers
There are many variations to shock the body, the jacks and star jumps activate the adductors along the inner thigh plus the glutes...I believe you look how you train so mix it up!
3. EAT WATER RICH GREEN FOODS!Reduce cortisol naturally and reduce acidity in your body with an alkaline diet. An acidic body is shown to hinder weight loss as elevated cortisol levels tell the body to protect itself with water retention and stored body fat. Natural detoxifiers...green foods alkalize the blood and reduces inflammation which reduces cortisol...green foods are also excellent for your skin! ;)4. AVOID ESTROGEN MIMICKING COMPOUNDS- XENOESTROGENS- XENO, literally means "foreign" so avoid Foreign estrogensThese include
Growth hormones in dairy and meat products
Chemical pesticides & Herbicides
Household cleaning products
Too many of these xenoestrogens can overload the body and cause us to store fat in areas such as the hips, but also and more importantly these estrogens can cause health imbalances and cancer, such as breast cancer5. DETOXIFY With NATURAL FOODS!Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, arugula, cabbage, kale, brussel sprouts contain a compound called Indole-3-carbinol which is shown to detoxify excess estrogens in the body.Also a high fiber diet is really important to absorb impurities and take it out of the body. A high fiber diet results in a decrease in estrogen levels in the bloodstream.Drink lots of pure water! Water is essential for assisting your organs in the detoxification process
Take Charge of the factors you CAN Control and in the meantime Embrace & be proud of your Body's Feminine Curves! After all confidence exudes SEXYNESS and that's a Beautiful Thing! ;)
