The majority of a woman’s body fat may be in her thighs and hips. Fat will start to rapidly accumulate in those areas during puberty, but that process will either slow down or completely stop when puberty ends. This means any body fat gained after puberty is the result of lifestyle choices and potentially medical issues.
But through healthy eating, proper exercise, and other thoughtful lifestyle changes you can keep cellulite, fat thighs, and extra pounds at bay.
1. Stay Hydrated
Proper hydration has a multitude of health benefits, many of which can contribute to weight loss. Water helps you feel fuller longer so you’re less likely to get a nasty case of the munchies in between meals.
We often confuse thirst for hunger, which can cause us to overeat. So the next time you’re feeling a little peckish, have a drink first. If it doesn’t solve the problem it will still temporarily take the edge off.
Water is also a key component in digestive health, the most important part of weight loss. Speaking of which…
2. Fiber is Your Friend
Fiber is necessary for both weight loss and overall digestive health. Like water, it helps you feel full longer because fiber isn’t as easily digested as other carbs.
Many high fiber foods are also high in protein, which is great news for anyone learning how to meal plan with less red meat in their diet. Healthy sources of fiber are easy to find, and even easier to add to every meal of the day!
3. Pinky Out
Coffee can cause dehydration which, as we highlighted in point one, is public enemy number one for any weight loss routine (and your health in general!). Regular tea is very sneaky, hiding the fact that it’s packed with all kinds of sugars and calories behind its reputation for being a healthy drink.
Herbal tea will hydrate you without any of those pesky contributors to fat thighs while still giving you the energy you need. Not to mention herbal teas often have unique health benefits of their own like pain relief and relaxation.

Citrus fruits are jam-packed with micronutrients that help your immune system, skin, and fight inflammation.
Not to mention they’re low in calories, making them an ideal way to give mealtime some extra flavor without sugars or processed foods. They have plenty of fiber as well.
Almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? It gets even better- herbal citrus teas give you the benefits of everything on this list.
