Help, How Do I Lose My Thick Knees / Fat on the Inside of my knees!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

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.

Are curves in and thigh gaps out?

Some people argue with stars like Beyonce, Kim and Kylie Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Blac Chyna, and Cardi B; more and moree popular curvy instagram models tagging #curvespiration; and individuals getting butt implants and injections, that thin, trim, skinny, and thigh gaps are out. But I beg to differ.

One could argue that there are stars like Bella and Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and almost 90% of other Hollywood starlets; more and more fit instagram models tagging #thinspiration, and the majority of the female population trying to lose weight and slim down proves otherwise.

There have always been some people who prefer to be slender and others who prefer to be slim. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Variety is the spice of life!

Additionally, As I always try to point out you can still have curves, which typically refer to a hourglass shape, and have slim, streamlined legs. It just also means you have an ample bosom, thin waist, and a nice serving of hips/butt.

We all know fads come and go. There was a time when men wore full jean outfits, the word juicy across their backside, and got their belly buttons pierced.

But contrary to what anyone says, I don’t think there will ever come another time when being slim and fit is undesirable. I know way back in the day the wealthy wore their fat as a symbol of pride that means they could afford to eat all the things, but we’ve moved beyond that.

It is in fact healthier to have a lower body fat – studies prove that slender people tend to live longer – and you are able to be a lot more active and do more things when you don’t have extra weight bogging you down.

So don’t let anyone tell you that you have to get with the times and suddenly desire something you don’t. You are certainly not an anomaly because you’d like slender legs and prefer to have a lower BMI. Just keep doing you!
