Knee Fat

Remove unwanted knee fat


Knee Fat

As we age, the body tends to hold fat in areas such as the thighs and knees. It can also be hereditary, your body may be programmed to store extra fat in these areas. There are a large number of insulin receptors in this area which equals more fat deposits in the knees and thighs.

The excessive fat around the knees is particularly difficult to reduce. Often, this is one of the last areas of fat to dissipate with extreme dieting. And most people are not prepared to reduce caloric intake sufficiently to a starvation level for such a prolonged period, just  to reduce knee fat.

Most common causes of knee fat include:

  • Hormonal changes can be linked to excess knee fat
  • Changes during menopause
  • Pregnancy
  • Sagging skin


How to Get Rid of Knee Fat?

Performing cardiovascular exercise to burn knee fat and targeting the muscles near your knees may help. Exercise such as running, indoor cycling, stair climbing, lunges, jumping rope, squats, rowing and brisk walking can all make a difference. In the past, some of the only effective ways to target unwanted knee fat was through surgery or liposuction to reduce knee fat, without excessive diets or exercise. 

Regardless of what you do to get rid of knee fat, it’s also important to consider your knee health as you don’t want to hurt your knees. There are many ways you can help protect your knees during exercise by wearing shoes designed for the activity you’re doing and when bending your knees, you don’t want to let them go past your toes.
