How to Lose Hip Fat: 3 Ways to Slim Your Hips

In this article I'll share with you three excellent methods on how to skim the fat off your muffin top, and sculpt the perfect curves you've always wanted. I'll discuss the best cardio workouts and ideas for exercising at home for free, even for busy mums and workaholics. I believe the key to losing weight and keeping it off is such a simple one.

I know you've heard this before, but that's cause it's true...

It's all about making those small changes to your life. Changing diet habits and maybe stepping out of your comfort zone now and again. Research shows that it takes 21 days for your mind to embrace these small changes as habits. And you know habits are tough to kick.

The simple fact is, people usually become overweight because they eat and drink more calories than they burn off. Although many people that have had a weight problem most of their lives would have you believe that their just big boned, or heavy set. This is simply not true. Everybody can have the slender body they desire. It all comes down to what we eat and how active we are. So lets get started...

1. Think healthy eating

If you have unwanted excess fat around you hips, chances are your a bit chunky else where. Of course we can target these specific area with exercise, but first lets talk about how we can start to drop a few pounds...

Its important to know: An average woman should consume about 2000 calories a day, and a man around 2500 calories. You should always check you BMI (body mass index) to get an accurate count. Get use to reading food packaging for calorie information to get a good measure of the amount you consume with each meal.

To start losing weight, drop 500 calories of your daily requirement. Do this and you'll shed pounds quickly and healthily. It's a good idea to make realistic weekly goals and write them down. Keep a record of your progress too, and write down any recipe ideas you have to spice up the odd, weeknight meal.

Take an interest in food in general. There's so much information out there about what's good for you. You could start by swapping breads, cereals, rice and pasta for wholegrain varieties. These contain more fibre which can make you feel full for longer.

Also, raid the kitchen for any high fat, high sugar foods. These must go if you want to eliminate all temptation. Well, you could always find a lower calorie version, if you can't live without some of them.

2. Membership fitness

So what does the word 'exercise' mean to you? This is a question you should ask yourself. Was there a time in you life when you enjoyed going to a fitness or dance class? Were you a regular gym goer or part of a sports team? Is there something you once enjoyed doing but life got in the way?

One exercise I would recommend to lose fat on your hips is dancing. Where I live in the UK, dancing is the fastest growing art for, and is certainly sweeping the nation. From Hip-Hop to the foxtrot, millions of people are regularly attending community dance groups and loving every minute of it.

Dancing has to be one of the most enjoyable ways to get some exercise. It's a perfect workout for losing weight, improving posture and firming up your body, all while your having fun.

Going to the gym or attending a fitness class is not only fantastic for losing weight and shaping your body, it will also give you drive and motivation. A great advantage here is to go with a friend or family member. This will encourage you both. On the other hand, if exercising in public is not your thing, this next tip is for you...

3. DIY fitness

There are many exercises you could do outside the confines of the gym. In fact, you could easily workout your hips, legs, bum, and pretty much everything else in the privacy on your home.
For me, the best free workout to burn calories, get fit and strip the fat off your hips is running. Don't be scared to try it! For some, the idea of some much exertion puts them off. But running is like anything else, the more practice you put in, the better you get. You simply start by walking. Then brake into a light jog. Do this in small bursts (depending on your fitness level) until you are comfortable with one or two miles.

My advice would be to run three or four days a week, a few miles at a time. Increase your weekend run (the long run) by, maybe 20% once a week, but keep your weekly runs the same distance throughout. One more thing: Your weight WILL drop dramatically!

If running isn't for you, try brisk walking. If the outdoors don't appeal at all, here's a great exercise you could do, even if you've got the busiest lifestyle with the kids or career. All you need is a flight of stairs and a pair of legs...

Walk up and down your stairs several times for two minute, or until you feel the burn. Then rest for 1 minute and repeat. Do this four times and that's your twelve minute workout, which can be repeated a few times a day (when kids are in school or gone to bed).

Also try step exercise on the first step. Step up and down for one - two minutes, then rest for one minute and repeat. You could easily design your own 45 minute workout using these simple exercises, or brake them up into morning, afternoon, evening sessions. I've tried these stairs exercises myself, and believe me, you will feel your hips, bum and legs turn to jelly. A small price to pay to feel fantastic for the rest of the day.
