Losing fat in the legs will improve your appearance and your health. Carrying too much fat slows you down and increases your risk of heart disease and diabetes. A weight-loss goal of 1 to 2 pounds a week is reasonable, which means in 30 days you can lose 4 to 8 pounds. Losing leg fat in 30 days requires a plan of healthy eating, cardiovascular workouts and leg toning exercises.
Eat a healthy, low-calorie diet. Eating more calories than your body need leads to fat gain. Cut your calories by eliminating sugary and fatty foods from your diet. Measure your portion sizes to avoid overeating. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggest eating fresh, healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins such as poultry.
