There are many reasons why you might want to get thinner hands and fingers---perhaps you enjoy playing guitar and your sausage-like fingers don't allow you the dexterity you need, or maybe you feel self-conscious when you wear rings or other jewelry on your hands. Whatever your reason, you must be aware that there is no quick fix to slimming down, even if you are just looking to reduce the size of your hands. Spot weight loss is an impossible feat and if you want to slim down your hands you will need to complete full-body exercise.
Exercise regularly to help reduce the amount of fat on your body. Cardio exercises such as biking, running, and rowing are great for burning calories and fat. You should also incorporate a strength-training routine
Eat a balanced diet and exercise portion control to help you from over-eating. If your weight is causing your hands to be large, you will need to maintain a calorie deficit to lose weight. Since one pound is equivalent to 3500 calories, you will need to burn off or cut back 500 calories per day to lose two pounds a week. Use a combination of diet and exercise to achieve this deficit.
Drink lots of water. Not only will this help you with exercising, but water will flush out toxins and release you into better health.
Reduce the amount of salt in your diet. Salt makes you puffy. It causes you to retain water. Avoid putting salt in your cooking and check labels for high sodium content.
Tips & Warnings
- If you notice that your weight gain is isolated to your hands only, it could be something serious. See a doctor.
