I know, spot-reduction is impossible.
But I have tried losing weight from all over, and my thighs are not budging. Do I need to starve to lose weight from my legs?😭

Do squats with weights, you may think this is counterproductive but it builds muscle and tones legs and thighs so the fat is burned off

It's a serious question by the way, I don't care it it's because of genetics etc.

I've done that though, I don't want bulky legs, just slimmer thighs. I just need to lose a bit of inner thigh fat near the top of my legs

Doing what anon #2 said to is actually very effective and does not make legs bulkier

I'm a girl, I don't know why that was confusing for you. Not all girls want a big butt.

oh okay, then that's fine.
Well then, do you think I should starve or something similar? Everyone is saying you have to lose fat from everywhere, but it's just not happening.

You cannot lose fat from a single area of your body.
Everyone is different as to where they put on and lose the weight from.
Doing focussed exercise is the only way to target a specific area.

Rn i'm trying to do the same thing. I think side leg raises and lunges are effective, at least for me, as well as squats.

Starving is defo a no go. As a personal trainer myself, starving actually does not reduce your fat levels like that as you have to burn through your carb stores first. Even keto diets etc are not effective. Try including more protein into your diet and healthier fats while reducing other fats and carbs, sleep more, start strength training, have vinegar included in diet, have plenty of fiber, do a lot of cardio and HIIT, drink coffee but not like milky, if you dont want this then healthy drinks etc and if you do want to fast try intermittent fasting not complete starvation

I know that.
But the fat is just not budging from there.

Eat in a deficit to lose fat. If you're working out, but eating like crap, you aren't going to lose the fat.

That's what I've been doing! No junk food at all either!
