If you want to reduce the amount of fat on a part of your body you can only do that by going on a weight loss diet to reduce your overall body fat percentage. It's impossible to target fat reduction in specific parts of the body, only muscle gain. If you diet and do jogging you will lose fat from your body and increase the size of the muscles in your legs, which should make your legs firmer and thinner assuming your body doesn't like to store your body fat there. Crash dieting is terrible. Apart from the large amount of potential health problems it also slows you metabolisms and encourages your body to use muscle instead of fat for energy. If you have a slow metabolism because of crash dieting you will put on weight rapidly once you return to a normal diet. Ideally your daily calorie intake (food eaten minus exercise) would be around 1250-1500 calories, split by 40% protein, 40% fat, and 20% carbs. Ideally your post workout meal should contain the majority of carbs, with around a 40% carb, 40% protein and 20% fat split, and other meals should have splits of around 40% protein, 40% fat and 20% carbs. Ideally you should also avoid carbs after 6pm. You can track your calories on websites like Myplate and Sparkpeople. Then think about exercise. You should think about doing cardio exercise, such as jogging, 3 times a week for 30 minutes. The Couch to 5k plan is very good at getting you from not being able to jog at all to being to jog no stop for 5km. If you want to lose fat and get a good body shape then you should consider weight lifting. A lot of women think lifting anything heavier then their purse will make them look huge, but women are not able to put on muscle like men, and unless you start taking hormones and eating half a cow a day you aren't going to end up big and bulky. Again, weight lifting should be done 3 days a week. I highly recommend reading Brain over Brawn as it contains a lot of useful information about dieting, weight lose, and exercise, without telling you to go about and spend stupid amounts of cash. It's particulary useful if you are looking for cheap alternatives to gym memberships.

Hey hun! Yes you can, but generally not a good idea if you don't want to be hospitalised and suffer with unbearable stomach cramps! Seriously babes, I wouldn't say it was worth the trouble - I know being committed to excersise and healthy eating isn't always easy, but it's the best and safest way to lose weight! Eating breakfast every morning will help to lose weight, as will eating a small meal every four hours, and not eating food after 7pm. Find an excersise that suits you, that you enjoy (even walking the dog a little further every day will do the trick!), and try your hardest to stick to that! It'll soon become fun, and you'll feel better for it - taking the lazy option and using laxatives will make you ill and weak, and the extreme would be you losing the ability to pass stools on your own (without the help of laxatives).. And that's not cool! All the best of luck in becoming the size you want to be, and please, be careful! Hope that was of some help babes!! xxxx

Play it safe and consult with your doctor regarding how to lose weight because certain things may apply to you differently due to your high blood pressure. However, outlined below is a diet, cardio and nutrition plan to hopefully help you reach your goal and is healthy. Diet: First things first: eliminate all unhealthy foods and drinks such as sodas (regular and diet), fast food, processed food, foods high in saturated fat, sugar, and simple grains such as white bread, white rice, etc. Consume 5-6 small meals a day, a meal every three or so hours. This will keep you somewhat full throughout the day and keeps your metabolism high which is key in burning fat. Drink tons of water - about a gallon and a half a day - as this flushes out toxins, keeps your body hydrated, and helps in the depleting of fat cells. Plus water has no calories so drink as much as you want; it keeps you full. Eat protein in every meal; you should aim for 20 grams of protein if you can. After your protein, consume your vegetables and fruits and then your whole grains. Eat as many vegetables as you please as most of these are negative calorie foods, meaning you burn up all the calories in the vegetable by simply chewing and digesting it. Plus, vegetables keep you full for long periods of time. Here are some healthy foods: lean protein (chicken, turkey, flank steak, and fish), whole grains (oatmeal, brown rice, wheat bread, wheat pasta, wheat tortillas), wide variety of vegetables, low glycemic fruits (berries, apples, oranges, bananas), and healthy fats in moderation (olive oil, eggs* - also good sources of protein, nuts and legumes). You can also supplement your diet with whey and casein protein shakes, omega-3 fish oils, and flax seed. Protein shakes are great for pre- and post-workouts; I recommend Optimum Nutrition. They taste great are as basic shakes for women and men. Sample Day: 7am - 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 apple, 1 whole egg with 2 egg whites 10am - One scoop Whey Protein (post workout) and handful of berries 1pm - 1 chicken breast, brown rice, 1 cup of steamed veggies 4pm - 1/2 cup Almonds and yogurt 7pm - 1 fillet Tilapia (or other fish) and romaine lettuce salad 9pm - Casein Protein Shake ***Craving sweets or dessert? Consumer Jell-O (10 cals) or Jell-O Pudding (60 cals); both are fat free and are low glycemic ***Hungry? Snack on vegetables – carrot and celery sticks for example ***Substitute protein shakes for other sources of protein, but make sure they are equivalent in amount of grams in protein, carbs and fat. Remember protein shakes have hardly any carbs and have no fat. Non-fat cottage cheese is a great substitute for casein protein shakes Cardio: Complete 30-45 minute sessions of cardio for 4-5 times a week. If you are going to do your cardio sessions with your resistance training, be sure to complete your cardio AFTER your resistance training. That way you can concentrate on proper form and will have more energy to complete more reps. Also, cardio after resistance helps you burn more calories and rids your body of lactic acid and makes you less sore for the next day. The most simple way to do cardio is to jog because it can be done anywhere, anytime without equipment. You can do laps in a pool, elliptical machine, treadmill, stairmaster and bike. Switch it up as much as you want to keep your body guessing. Interval training is the best way to cut fat and to tone up. It also keeps your body burning calories for up to 48 hours after your training, which is why many athletes and professional body builders use this method. Example: Warm up - 5 minutes Intensity Level 9 - 1 minute Intensity Level 6 - 2 minutes Intensity Level 3 - 1 minute *Repeat 3-6 times depending on how long you want* Cool Down - 5 minutes *This can be done on any workout equipment or when you are out running, jogging or walking. Intensity level is rated between 1-10.* Resistance Training: Resistance training helps you sculpt your muscles and burn calories for up to two days after your training. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism is, the lower your body fat percentage and the more visible your abs or flat stomach become. Start out by splitting up your routine like this : Mondays - Shoulder/Biceps, Wednesdays - Legs/Back, and Fridays - Chest/Triceps. Training one day, taking one day off allows for your muscles to heal which is necessary to properly sculpt your body. In the gym, complete a mixture of machines and free weights, as machines help with proper form and free weights hit muscles machines can't. Also, to tone up, try smaller amounts of weight but more reps. Focus more on proper form and completing the exercise slow, rather than multiple sets of tons of exercises going through them super fast. To get those toned abs, work your abs like any other muscle. Take one day on and one day off. If you want to make them super visible, add weight. Split up your routine like this: Mondays - Upper Abdominals, Wednesdays - Lower Abdominals, Fridays - Obliques.
