  • Bicycling and Brisk Walking Keep the Kilos Off

    An analysis based on the Harvard Nurses’ Health Study II found that women who bicycle or walk briskly for 30 minutes per day are able to maintain their weight, or even lose weight into their 30s and 40s.
  • I have very large thighs. Will brisk walking reduce the size of my large thighs?

    Unfortunately you cannot pick a place on your body to lose weight specifically. This myth, known as "spot reduction" propagated within the 1970's and 1980's until it was quickly dispelled by numerous scientific studies. Therefore, it is very important to understand that performing a legs based workout may result in more fat loss from your upper body than your legs - your genetic makeup determines where fat is metabolised from.

    That said, weight loss is essentially calories in versus calories out. So if you consume more energy (calories) from your diet, you will gain weight. Meanwhile if you perform enough exercise in order to create a caloric deficit (ie. more calories out than in), you will lose weight. Of course, many other factors do come into play - such as your genetic makeup, hormones, lifestyle etc. This is why your weight loss will be significantly different to anyone else trying to achieve a similar goal.

    So in your specific case, you may find that the hardest part of the body to lose fat from will be your thighs. You need to find the right level of physical activity in order to induce weight loss. You will also need to monitor your diet and ensure that you are consuming less calories than what you are expending through indicental activity and exercise.

    Several studies have shown that a combination of healthy eating, cardiovascular exercise and resistance exercise (ie. using weights) will promote optimal fat loss. I would suggest to find yourself a personal trainer that can assist you in developing well rounded plans in order to achieve your goals.
