Cankles, Begone! 8 Tips and Exercises to Help You Lose Fat Ankles

lower leg and foot

The slang term for lack of definition between the calf and ankles, 'cankles,' is a term that has become so common for most of us that you can find it in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

While many of us are not fond of these unattractive features due to their lack of aesthetic appeal, we should also consider that cankles are a symptom of severe health conditions. 

Therefore, before trying to treat your fat ankles, you should discuss with a physician to understand the exact cause to ensure the right plan of action.

Yet, if your fat ankles are due to either the results of weight gain, pregnancy, or old age, then this article has the solution for you. Here are eight tips that you should follow to deal with those unwanted ankles.

Tip 1: Cankle Exercises

It would be helpful to perform lower leg exercises to tone the muscles that surround your calves. It's also essential to understand that you won't be burning any fat through isolation exercises. 

We'll explain how you can burn fat later in this article.

Tip 2: Reduce The Sodium Intake

Even though we humans need sodium to keep our brain functioning, too much of it causes us to retain water, and it tends to show up at our ankles.

Therefore, reducing the salt shaker's use at the dinner table can give you the results you're looking for.

Tip 3: Keep Your Legs Up

If you're pregnant, your body retains more fluid as a safety mechanism for your baby's needs. Again, more fluids in the body can show up at your ankles, giving you those unwanted elephant legs.

Nevertheless, the happiest days of your life are to come, and those swollen ankles can be controlled if you take the time to rest and keep your legs raised about 10-15 minutes a day.

Tip 4: Compression Stockings

Wear compression stockings if you suffer from swelling in the lower portions of your legs. This tends to be more common in patients that have vascular diseases or venous disorders.

Tip 5: Drink Diet Fluids

Given that your body is 70% water, you should be very consistent with the number of fluids you have in your body to keep your systems working well.

Diuretic drinks have the power of flushing out from your body the excess fluids. Pick up some dandelion tea or green tea at your local supermarket and brew yourself a cup!

Tip 6: Embrace Your Beauty

Sometimes treating your ankles isn't the solution – a bit of self-love can help you overcome how you feel about yourself.

Tip 7: Medications

Maybe the medications you take have swelling as a possible side effect. This is common with pills for kidney and heart diseases.

If your pills are causing your swollen ankles, discuss with your doctor what alternatives there are for you.
