Balanced diet: One should always have a balanced diet. To lose weight one needs to have portion control and to exercise. As a general rule, a salad-sized plate should be filled halfway with vegetables, 1/4 with lean protein the size of a deck of cards, 1/4 with complex carbs. One should try to exercise for 30 min 3-5/wk, or walk 10, 000 steps a day. Too many fruits may aggravate Insulin resistance.

Increase activity: For most people, adding moderate exercise such as a daily 30 minute walk or jog will result in slow, sustainable weight loss while building lean body mass. Along with this, try to eliminate high-calorie beverages and substitute water. This combination often results in a difference of 500 calories daily, which adds up to a pound a week.

Thinner legs: First, make sure you are eating a healthy diet in appropriate portions. Next, cardiovascular exercise is the best for slimming down (lifting weights tend to add muscle and bulk to your legs). Lastly, seek the advice of a trainer for specific leg toning exercises.
