So what to do about the dreaded thighs when your underweight?!
Heya my name is Alex and I don't know about you but I struggle with fattier thighs :(
Since March last year I have lost 14.4kg of weight (31lbs).
I used to weigh 67.8kg and now I weigh 53.4kg at a height of 5'9", my BMI now being 17.9, good you'd say? No!
I was on the Paleo diet/lifestyle for the start of this year and did really well with it (I love it! So much energy and health!) but pressure from my family (they didn't approve of paleo :O)forced me into bad diets with unfortunately lots of sugar and carby things but a high caloric defecit, as you can imagine I lost more than I wanted to and it was all my lean muscle mass!
So now I look almost anorexic on my top half however I have huge, fatty thighs and everything is like jelly even though I am now classed as underweight.
Personally I have now returned to paleo and now go to the gym 3 times a week to lift weights and do short but intense cardio sessions (10-15mins) and then I have Saturday being my sprint day. Furthermore I walk to and from my college and around my town every day.
I havn't noticed much change yet but I know that I really must rid all this excess fat and build the muscle again.
If anyone can give me some advice on what to do it would help so much!
