How to lose weight in your hips

May 29, 2022


The hips and thighs are points where excess fat tends to accumulate, especially in the case of women. While it may be tempting to specifically target that area, it's not an achievable goal. Only general weight loss can reduce the size of any part of the body. With weight loss and body fat reduction, you will notice a decrease in fat around your hips as well as the rest of your body. If you want to lose this fat, you should try a combination of diet, cardio, and strength training.


Therefore, the correct way to approach the reduction of our hip size is to carry out sufficient physical activity (or of sufficient intensity) to generate, together with a diet oriented to this objective, a change in body composition that allows us to maintain or increase our muscle mass and reduce or consume body fat reserves, which will ultimately resort to those located in the hips, since they are areas in which the human being, for physiological reasons, tends to accumulate more fat and use it or burn it in last place.
