Exercise and For thigh

Everybody knows exercise is vital for a healthy lifestyle. If you don't exercise, you are likely to have an unhealthy lifestyle. Result? As well as increasing a weight problem and a 'shape' problem, you run very risky and developing several horrible diseases in later life.
But exercise is not a quick-fix solution for any diseases. Yes, it helps to improve the long-term work-rate of the body, and Yes, it helps to re-shape parts of the body. So the balanced approach is best, In order to get the most out of exercise, I think that you make it a regular part of your life without going mad about it. Don't walk your butt off and expect to lose weight. Don't try to be an Olympic athlete in the gym and expect to turn your fat thighs into slim thighs, because it won't happen.

Harmful Stomach Fat

For people with a BMI of 34 or less, a fat belly is regarded as an additional health risk. Fatty tissue carries a greater health risk than fat located in the lower body around the butt and thighs. Some health studies show that abdominal fat leads to raised blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, high blood sugar, insulin resistance syndrome (metabolic syndrome X) and heart disease.

Fat (extra calories) is largely a combination of gender, age and genetic inheritance. Men tend to store fat around their middle, whereas women typically store fat around the pelvic region, hips, butt and thighs (pear shape). However, women are prone to develop an apple shape in mid-life, after menopause. This is because the female hormones are present in smaller amounts and so their shape tends to become more 'male'. Studies show that abdominal fat can develop as a result of stress also.

How to Reduce a Fat Stomach?
The healthiest solution is to maintain a normal weight. By matching your calorie intake to your calorie needs and prevent weight gain, you will prevent the development of any excess fat. Follow a healthy weight loss diet, combined with fitness exercises such as aerobics (to burn extra calories) and a stomach-toning workout to help tighten and strengthen abdominal muscles
