In addition, make sweet potatoes your only carb at every single meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner – for 1 week. Sweet potatoes are low-glycemic foods, as opposed to foods with a high glycemic index that spike hormone levels linked to arm fat. Enjoy sweet potatoes each day in different ways such as in pancakes for breakfast, baked “fake fries” for lunch, or baked for dinner. For recipe suggestions, click here. 

4. Fat-burning Formula for Thighs

Research shows that thigh fat is less metabolically active than fat on other parts of the body. To burn fat in this stubborn area, your body needs a metabolic boost. Try increasing your metabolism to burn fat stores in your thighs with:

  • 1000mg calcium pyruvate before each meal
  • Swap all meat for meat substitutes

Pyruvic acid is found naturally in the body, helps convert sugar and starches into energy, and has been shown to boost metabolism. However, to actually help burn thigh fat, you need more pyruvic acid than the body can provide. A calcium pyruvate supplement combines pyruvic acid and calcium to aid weight loss by working to minimize fat storage in areas like your thighs. Take 1000mg of calcium pyruvate before each meal for 1 week.

Animal fat has a high-saturated fat content that can get stored in your thighs. Don’t eat meat for 1 week. Instead, choose protein from plant sources: veggie burgers, soy hot dogs and tofu bacon.
