    Guy with big butt and thighs help

    I'm a 22 years old male. I have a really big and wide butt and big thighs. My body is really disproportioned I have really skinny arms little to no fat on my upper stomech and fat on my lower stomech. The lower my body goes the bigger and fatter. Im vary embaressed by it. its like i have a women's body. I know cardio and diet helps but is there anything else I can do to lose my thighs butt and lower stomach? I don't want to do any toning or building on my butt and thighs becuase it will make them look bigger without losing the layer of fat.

    Here's a little info of what I do and eat

    22 turning 23 in jan. 164 lbs a lot of it fat 5'6 34-35 weist

    I take fish oil a multi vitamin and super hd fat burner

    I eat 3-4 times a day every 4 hours

    Breakfast.
    Oatmeal with some kind of fruit or cinnamon and egg 4 egg white somedays I have turkey sausage links and turkey bacon. Some days but rarely have cereal

    Lunch.
    I'd have grilled chicken breast some kind of vegetable and a little ranch for the chicken and vegetables (I know it's bad)

    For dinner I'd useally have some kind of frozen dinner like lean cuisine or some **** like that

    I cheat once a week with a soda, cake or something sweet. I can't go without chocolate completly I'm a sugar addict

    I useally eat about 1500-1800 calories a day

    I haven't been doing cardio the pass three weeks but mean to start doing next week I used to do jump rope jumping jacks really high intensity cardio for about 20-30 mins

    Will this all help at all?
    Is there something else I need to be doing?

    I hate to say this, but you can't "spot" reduce. Your butt and thighs might be your stubborn areas and it will take time and patience to get there.

    I would suggest getting into a solid weight training routine, however. By really building your upper body, you'll get a nicely balanced aesthetic. You'll also keep from losing lean body mass, which you will if your only doing diet+cardio...

    You might want to see a doctor. It could be a medical issue.
    I saw this lady who was about average in her upper body, not fat not skinny, but her ass area and thighs were literally 3x as wide as the rest of her. It looked like she had a saucer around her waist.
    My chiro friend told me it's a circulation issue.
    You said your body wasn't exactly proportionate so you might have something similar.

    I use to weigh 378lbs and my thighs were huge, I done a lot of walking and cycling over a course of a year and am very happy with my legs now.

    Only thing left to sort out is my stomach, it takes time but you'll get there.

    Like Velotique wrote - you can not reduce fat from certain areas of your body.

    People are "built" differently - and have different body types. Endomorphs tend to store more fat on the thighs and butt - and I have seen some men even have an almost female distrubution of bodyfat - opposed to the more typical distribution of bodyfat on most men.

    According to your stats your BMI is 26,5 - a little overweight - even though BMI is often a poor measure - you do write that you have too much bodyfat in certain areas still - and you need to loose some of that fat. A picture I found and attached - shows a skinny fat endomorph man- with very skinny arms, and poor muscle mass in his upper body.

    You really need to focus on building more mass on your upper body - arms, shoulders, traps, pecs and lats to balance your heavier lower body.

    Wow, you need to post a warning on that pic! Body shape reminds me of Sid the Sloth from Ice Age.

    So you mean I will never lose the fat there no matter how hard I diet and exercise?

    Same exact issue here

    I've lost 55 lbs and my thighs are just as bad as when I began, even though my gut has slimmed down like mad.

    It's unbelievable how good my upper body is getting vs how bad my lower body is. i'm 6'1 205 lbs and 19-20% bf but have 28" fat thighs and 44" hips.

    You can, it will just take a LOT of effort. With your body type, you probably have wider hips, which is why we advised building your upper body out a lot to balance your lower.

    There are some specific protocols for addressing stubborn fat - you might want to check out Lyle McDonald's site:

    Wow that poor guy clearly has some genetic or medical issues there. His upper body looked so small in comparison to the lower body. Not sure what could be done there. Eek.

    I haven't been doing cardio the pass three weeks but mean to start doing next week I used to do jump rope jumping jacks really high intensity cardio for about 20-30 mins

    Will this all help at all?
    Is there something else I need to be doing?
    --------------------
    Ok so i am the exact same age as you and i work out daily and i was at the bigger end of my bmi weight to. the more i have lost the more obvious my huge hip, ars and lower stomach look. its so difficult because it makes working out which is hard enough even harder seeing a worse body than when you started out. i can tell you how to loose it but its not gunna be pretty this is not healthy nor am i saying it is. for me i just stoped eating for a week, which cleared my system and shrunk my stomach. from there i literally cut out carbs, and fat - just fruit veg and meat i mean allot of fruit and veg and meat. (carbs are in veg too but very little so thats fine )over 3 months i have come down to the lower end of my bmi and still have some way to go. the truth is your hips and mid section willl just be the last place to go in fat terms, as it is fat. at the same time buy some weights at home, dumbells of 6kg and higher. keep working on building your top body and thats it. you will not gain any weight but gain muscle whilst loosing fat over the whole body. eventually around 4 months you should start putting in cardio work outs that are not leg heavy. the pump it up work out on youtube is good if you just go straight to the pump it up part which cuts out the leg work out warm up, and do that twice a day. this is like a year long comitment. becaue your hips are your stubborn area like mine. the last place to loose fat and the first to gain it. just remember that it will go eventually and dont see your body as getting worse just see it as slowly changing. keep at it

    I was 300 pounds and had the biggest love handles, like two basketballs of fat sticking out the side of my body

    I lost down to 180 and the love handles barely changed, while the rest of my body started to look anorexic, god it was frustrating and depressing

    Then I lost down to 160 and they completely dissappeared, like the whole last 20 pounds i lost was the love handles. Now I'm gaining muscle and extremely happy. Think of it like a war and if you keep eating at a calorie defecit the fat has to be burned from somewhere, eventually your body will have no choice no matter how messed up your genetics are.
