Exercise: When you watch your diet and exercise you typically lose weight form all over your body. You can work on strengthening the muscles in your legs which would make your thighs leaner. Lifting heavy weights usually builds larger muscles. Lighter weights with many repeptitions can tone your thigh muscles.
