I know most of you think carbohydrates are not good because of the common misconception that it stores mostly on the stomach.

Well, I want to tell you that such a perception is wrong.

Instead,  stomach fat is stored as a result of eating excess calorie above maintenance calorie.

Calories are present in all kinds of food including fruits and veggie that you so consider as most healthy.

On the contrary, carbohydrate can be a source of glycogen for our hips and thigh muscle.

If you donโ€™t know, Glycogen is the final energy unit that is saved in the muscles for the body to able to perform its daily function without burning muscles or tissues.

The primary way to generate glycogen is from carbohydrate,  that one reason you need carbohydrate daily.

If you donโ€™t eat carbs, your body can burn the small thighs and hips muscle you already have as energy in the form of glycogen.

Though you need to eat carbohydrate, not all types of carbs are good for you.

If you donโ€™t want to accumulate fat on other body parts that you donโ€™t want, it important you eat mostly complex carbs which what give you in the post.

So letโ€™s looks at the list of healthy complex carbohydrate to eat.

Fat is another class of foods that go straight to your thighs and hips which should not be neglected.

Though carbohydrates are the main energy source in the body, your body also turns to fat when there is no carbohydrate to use as energy.

Aside from that fat helps your body to absorb some vitamins like Vitamin A, D, E and K.

These fat-soluble vitamins cannot be absorbed in your hips and thigh muscle if you donโ€™t eat fat.

I am sure you know that these vitamins are essential parts of your daily diet. If you donโ€™t know here is what they do below.

Vitamin A keeps your eyes healthy and promotes good vision,

Vitamin D helps in the protection of your bones and makes them strong by boosting calcium absorption,

Vitamin E defends cells by neutralizing all kinds of free radicals in your body

Vitamin K is essential in clotting your blood

And finally, fat helps regulate your body temperature and are stored close to your muscle for the preservation of your thigh and hips muscle.

Though fat is unquestionably important in our daily meals, it should be consumed in moderation.

Just 1 gram of fat has 9 calories, which is like double the amount of calories you can get from carbohydrates and protein.

And if you eat an excess of it too rapidly you stand a chance of storing the fat on other parts of your body other than your thighs and hips.

There are healthy and unhealthy fat choices.

I listed only the healthy ones below because these kind of fat are easily digestible and have less tendency to be stored on some odd body parts that you do not want fat on.

#3 Class- Protein

We are finally here my favourite foods class. Proteins are my favourite because it is the building blocks of all body parts.

Whether you ARE trying to build chest or booty, hips or thighs, protein is your man.

Protein is directly the food class that helps your body to grow flesh on the hips and thighs.

They help for the development of a new cell, tissue/muscles and even for the repair of any worn-out cell and tissues.

By eating high protein food your thighs and hips will have the nutrients they need to grow bigger in size?

Protein is made of amino acids, these amino acids are the building blocks of protein. You can just say; amino acids are the smaller elements that protein is made up off.

There are 22 amino acids all PUT together that the human body needs in other function properly.

10 of them are essential amino acids( that means your body cannot synthesize or produce them in your body on its own).

So they have to be obtained from the food we eat. (Two out of these, are essential only for children i.e.  arginine and histidine ).

The nonessential amino acids are the ones that if you donโ€™t get from food, your body can manufacture by them yourself from fats, carbs, and other amino acids.

These 3 glutamine, ornithine, and taurine are somewhere in between essential and nonessential for human beings.

They become essential under certain conditions, like in the case of injury and disease.

The last 2 marked asterisks are essential for children and nonessential for adults.

You will need to eat food that contains these remaining essential amino acids for your hips and thighs to grow bigger. The list after the table below will show you the foods to eat to get remaining amino acids.

Essential Amino Acids Nonessential Amino Acids
Isoleucine Alanine
Leucine Asparagine
Lysine Aspartic acid
Methionine Citrulline
Phenlyalanine Cysteine
Threonine Glutamic acid
Tryptophan Glycine
Valine Hydroxyglutamic acid
Serine Norleucine
Tyrosine Proline
