How Long Does it Take To Burn Leg Fat Naturally?

How much time is needed to tone your legs? That's a quite common question amongst those who are trying to lose stubborn thigh fat. 

If you're trying to burn thigh fat, begin with the necessary and basic understanding of caloric balance and fat loss, and always make sure that you're ready to set up reasonable expectations.

Calorie Balance

If your main goal is to lose fat, a calorie deficit is the most important measure you should understand. If you want to lose a pound of fat on average, you must undergo a caloric deficit of roughly 3,500 calories.

In essence, the more calories that are burned in a day, week, or month, the quicker it will be to tone your legs and your overall body as well.

While it can be very tempting to get rid of fat solely on the thighs alone, it's not possible. Spot-reducing fat, meaning eliminating it in a specific area of the body, is not really possible.

Our bodies work by burning a generalized amount of energy throughout the entire body. Consuming slightly fewer than one burns in a day will put the body in the needed state of deficit. If you maintain a caloric deficit consistently for months, your entire body will be slimmer, including your thighs.

Implementing Resistance Training

While cutting fat directly from your thighs isn't an option, you can still improve the appearance of this area of your body with the help of resistance training.

Resistance training builds lean muscle mass, providing a more taut and toned appearance to targeted muscle groups and even facilitating faster fat loss.

As you create lean muscle with resistance training, you'll also be burning calories to help you achieve your caloric deficit. 

Set Reasonable Expectations

How long does it take to lose thigh fat? Setting reasonable expectations regarding how long fat removal takes is an essential step in your fat-burning journey.

It's encouraged that you aim for a total of 1 to 2 pounds of fat loss per week. It's a sustainable rate that will not push your body into "starvation mode," which is counterproductive because your body attempts to conserve calories rather than burn them.

The quality of calories that you consume is just as important as well. Lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and fewer carbohydrates will help you consume fewer calories in the long run.
