Many women are looking for ways to get slim hips and thighs.

They keep telling that every stray calorie seems to migrate to their hips and thighs. This is not a figment of their imaginations.

Many women's bodies store excess fat predominantly in this area before menopause, creating what's come to be known as the "pear-shaped" body. But here is the happy news!

There are ways to coax these fat cells in your thighs to release their contents, and to coax your muscle cells into burning it up! So don't despair. Watch on for the right moves that blast fat from your hips and thighs.



First, daily exercise will help to normalize your hormonal levels. This not only helps prevent cellulite, it will also help to prevent mood swings. Second, exercising will increase blood circulation to your thighs, helping to keep the connective tissue healthy. Better blood circulation will, in turn, help to remove excess fluid. Finally, as you shed fat in your hips and thighs, you'll have less of it to press against your connective tissue.
