With your incline, that is. Pump up the treadmill’s incline, find some hills to bike or run up, or take the stairs outside or in your home. You’ll instantly feel your heart rate increase, which means you’re working harder and burning more calories than if you were to stick to a flat surface. Incline also targets the thighs, hamstrings, and tush, toning your lower body.

With all the cardio you’re doing that’s stripping away that extra layer of fat surrounding your lower body, you want to reveal strong, toned muscles underneath. Doing moves that sculpt your inner and outer thighs, hamstrings, and butt will make your legs look leaner and slimmer.

Snack OftenSnack Often

Eating a little something every few hours will prevent hunger from causing you to overeat, so be sure to eat a snack in between meals. Keep it under 150 calories, and choose foods high in protein and fiber to fill you up and offer energy.

Drink More WaterDrink More Water

Choose water every time you reach for a drink, and you’ll save hundreds of calories by avoiding sodas, fruit juices, and other sweetened beverages. Aside from being zero calories, H2O will keep you hydrated, which also helps with weight loss. Keep water close by, and sip it often, especially before meals—filling up on water before eating helps encourage portion control.

Sleep RightSleep Right

Getting enough rest is also proven to aid in weight loss. Sleepiness makes people snack more, while also making them too tired to work out.

Fuel Your DayFuel Your Day

Definitely don’t skip the first meal of the day since it’ll jump start your metabolism, which helps to reduce your overall body fat to reveal your leaner legs. Pass on sugary meals with refined carbs, and opt for a combo of protein and fiber-filled complex carbs. The protein will give you energy so you’ll feel pumped for that early-morning cardio workout. As an added bonus, it also helps build muscle. The carbs will sustain that energy and keep you feeling full.
