FACT:  Women naturally store more body fat than men in their hips and thighs.

FACT:  It is harder for women to maintain a slim midsection due to their bodies naturally storing fat in their hips and thighs.

In order for you ladies to achieve toned hip and thighs you have to follow a normal exercise routine and nutritional diet plan consistantly.  It takes more for you to obtain an unnatural physique.  You are working against mother nature.  Consistency with a healthy diet plan and exercise routine over a long period of time will eventually suppress this natural occurence.  Your body adapts and burns energy according to your activities.  BE ACTIVE!

MYTH:  After a hard workout its okay to eat extra or until you get full.

After a workout it is important to replace energy that you burned with energy that will contribute towards your lean mass.  The purpose of normal exercise is to increase your metabolism, the rate at which your body burn calories.  Ladies, you have to remember your natural pre-disposition.  Your bodies efforts to replace calories burned in your midsection are very strong.  The hunger and crave you have after your workout wants you to eat enough inorder to keep you thick in the hips and thighs.  In a sense it is pshycological.  Following a detailed diet plan will help you avoid eating until you feel satisfied.  Plan your meals according to what activities you will perform the next 3 to 4 hours.  Plan your post-workout meals according to the amount of calories you are required to have in a meal.

MYTH:  To burn fat in my hips and thighs you only need to focus and train those muscles.

This is an assumption that alot of females make when formulating a fitness plan, and a big mistake!  Overtraining a muscle group can have a reverse effect to the muscles.  You will begin to burn away the muscle you have.  Your muscles are what contribute to the amount of calories your body burns in a day.  A lack of muscle mass promotes and increase in stored body fat.  Excess energy you consume will be stored in your hips and thighs.  It is important to give your muscles time to recover so that they will be fully energized for the next workout.  A balanced workout routine each day working different muscles, a total body routine, is the answer.  Working out all your muscles throughout a weekly routine will help you avoid overtraining and allow your body to burn more calories overall faster than ever.  Exercising different muscles will increase you metabolism, which has you burning more calories throughout the day.
