I received a letter from a woman recently asking me what could be done about the fat on the inside of her knees, which according to her have too much padding and a weird convex shape. She stressed that it isn’t the bone and wanted to know if it was possible to get rid of it?
This may seem like crazy talk, nitpicking, or body picking to some of you and that’s fine if this isn’t a concern that you may have, but to those women with wide knees that bulge out towards each other ruining the streamline, svelte, and elegant look they’d prefer to have for THEIR bodies, I can see you bunching up the squishy, slightly solid flesh above the insides of your own knees and hear you collectively shouting “Yes! Please tell me the answer right now!”
Many women want legs that look long and lean like the woman pictured to the left. If you follow the line from the ankle up, we’re talking about a dip just under the knee, then a slight curve hugging the knee that either goes straight up or inward towards the groin.
Unfortunately, if you are a petite or shorter adult woman with shorter legs there’s nothing you can do to make your legs actually grow longer.
But, there is something you can do to make them appear longer besides wear high heels.
You see, the more fat on your legs the shorter and stubbier they will look. So even if you have normal calves and thighs, fat knees can totally throw off the model-like never ending legs that you dream about.
So, what’s the answer?
No, you can’t really spot reduce the fat unless you opt for liposuction, cool sculpting or kybella shots. And remember, if you lipo the fat away it is liable to show up elsewhere on the body. Squatting, lunging, and doing weighted leg exercises are not the answer either. That’s more likely to grow your quads and make your leg look like a bulldog.
HOW TO LOSE FAT ON YOUR KNEES
You should know by now that you have to lose weight all over you body – something I outline how to do as easily as possible in my books (“The Thigh Gap Hack” “Bye Bye Thunder Thighs” “How to Lose Water Weight” and “The Easy Diet”).
But, besides the obvious slow long jogs or walks, massages, increasing circulation to the area, and small movement exercises that will tone the knee and many more hacks that I go over in The Thigh Gap Hack, will help to whittle away the chunky, thick, fat on the inside of your knees or above your knees and leave your legs short shorts and mini skirt friendly.
