hi i'm quite small - 160cm tall, 52 kg - but i think my body is very out of proportion, i have a tiny upper body and a larger lower body and my legs put on muscle very easily. do you know how to lose muscle healthily or certain exercises that put on less muscle or make legs thinner? thankyou!
In order to lose muscle, you need to not work that area. If you don’t work out, your muscles will undergo atrophy, or decrease from disuse. So drop all direct resistance on your legs (squats, lunges, etc). As for cardio, avoid the bike and rower. Jogging and/or walking is the best way to slim muscle in your legs. Low-medium intensity cardio for an extended period of time. Good luck! :)
Love your blog! I just had a clarifying question from one you've already answered. (Assuming a sedentary female consuming 1,200 minimum calories a day) if we say burn 300 calories with exercise, we have to actually eat 1,500 in total a day, and so forth, to lose weight in a healthy matter? (Because if we only ate 1,200 calories a day and then lost 300 with exercise, we would be at 900)
Pretty much. Every woman is different and not everyone is 1200, but more are around that number so that’s why 1200 is the rough estimate. So for your net to be 1200, you would have to eat back what you burn, this goes to fueling your body and keeping your organs safe and your heart a beatin ;)
