How to look like a supermodel part 9: 4 most effective ways to get rid of that Elephant Thigh
While the west has been obsessed with thigh gap, in Singapore, women have long been doing whatever we can to avoid, or get rid of what’s commonly known as “Elephant thigh” – referring to the chubby and thick thighs. Needless to say, this term was inspired by the actual elephant legs. Adorable on elephant, not so great to look at on human. Certainly not something any super model would be caught dead with. Not the traditional skinny Victoria’s secret models, and not even on plus size models.
But, most of us are not models, and most of us do have some slight to serious thigh problems (depends on the time of the year… And the holiday season that is right now, does not help one bit.), and that’s okay, because when there’s a will, there’s a way. Let’s skip that afternoon dessert and find out what we can do about that inner thigh fat now!
1 – Double down that cardio
Now, since you’re trying to get thinner legs, thinner inner thighs to be specific, you might be tempted to do exercises like squats. That is a no-no if all you want is a thinner thigh as it will tone up your thighs, makes them bigger by bringing more muscle into them.
But there is some exercise you can do to get thinner thighs, that would be anything cardiovascular. Keep in mind that your cardio goal is to burn fat, but not gaining too much muscle mass. Exercises like long distance running is especially best for you if you’re trying to have thinner thighs and legs. And remember, avoid anything that will burn your thighs and legs, this means that even when you’re running, avoid uphill and certainly do not run the stairs.
2 – Full body workout without targeting specific areas
Try to do exercises that involve more than one area of your body instead of focus on a certain area. By doing so, your body gets to burn fat without building up too much muscle on a certain area.
3 – Drink your water!
Replace your sugary beverage, fruit juices and sodas with good ole drinking water. By doing so, you’re already taking in fewer calories. Drink water often and drink it whenever you can, don’t wait till you’re thirsty. This will keep your body hydrated, which helps with weight loss. Remember, we are not about getting ripped and toned up our thighs here, we are about losing that thigh fat. Anything that help you drop some weight is good for you. A little trick is to drink water before meal – this will help with portion control of the food.
4 – ZERONA
In case you haven’t noticed, all of the methods above takes time, effort and discipline. Fat burning is a long term project, and especially when it comes to areas like waist, thighs, and arms, they are known as the “stubborn fat” and are notoriously difficult to get rid of. Hence a good amount of time and consistency in your exercise is required to see noticeable results.
For the busy professionals or full-time moms that don’t have the time to dedicate to hours of cardio every day, we recommend ZERONA.
ZERONA is a fat burning laser treatment approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration of the United States of America). It is a non-invasive treatment, which makes it safer than any invasive fat reduction treatment. And because it is non-invasive, this also means that there is absolutely no surgery needed, which means there is ZERO down time. Just hop in for the treatment and hop out right after you’re done, simple and efficient. Oh, and did I mention it has ZERO side effect1?
Approved by the FDA in 2010, ZERONA is a low-level laser device that can disrupt the fat cell and causing the release of stored lipids (A group of naturally occurring molecules that contain fats along with many others) and fatty materials. ZERONA has been proven effective and safe. But don’t take my words for it, you can head right to the link below to see some past results. https://onlyaesthetics.sg/treatments/zerona/
