Eating foods high in saturated fats and refined sugars, like the processed foods you see on your grocery store aisles, will do nothing but way you down. Check out this guide to healthy eating on a budget on our lifestyle website.

Increase Cardio + Add Intervals For Leaner Legs

Simply put if you want to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than consume. Cardio is the type of exercise that increases your heart rate and burns more calories at the moment you’re working out.  You can choose a tone of cardio that works your legs at the same time. Our favorites are hills and stairs. Adding intervals to your cardio workout will send your workouts into boost mode. This helps boost your metabolism and the number of calories you burn. It’s also great for preventing the dreaded workout plateau.

Do More Total Body Strength Training

So, while cardio helps you burn calories in the moment, strength training helps you burn calories when you are not working out. Increasing the amount of total body strength training that you do will help you build more muscle, boost your metabolism, and in turn burn more calories. Don’t worry about bulking up and looking like a body builder. It won’t happen. What will happen is you will start turning the excess fat that is causing your thighs to rub together into lean muscle.
