Thin Thighs in 30 Days

A bestselling plan revised and updated for a new generation.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

An instant sensation when it was first released in 1982, Thin Thighs in 30 Days by Wendy Stehling stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year and was called “one of the bestselling weight-loss books ever written” by Jack Canfield.

Now Stehling is back with a newly revised and updated edition of Thin Thighs in 30 Days.

This updated classic features the following additions:

  • Three ways to get fit and stay fit even into middle age and beyond.
  • Ways to maximize the calories your burn during everyday walks and measure your progress.
  • Simple leg and butt-toning exercises you can do in the morning and even at work.

Stehling was on numerous national programs and in the prime of her life when her book first launched. Now, she’s in her late 50s, still fit and the perfect spokesperson for a new generation -- as well as an older generation seeking reassurance that you really can be fit and trim at any age.

DIET and NUTRITION

The diet portion of theThin Thighs in 30 Days plan is featured in the "Weight-Off" portion of the book. It encourages that you create a lower-calorie meal plan that suits your lifestyle. While the book does not give you sample meal plans, it does include a chart that lists daily calorie totals you should aim for based upon your goal weight. In addition, Stehling's lists her 16 nutrition tips for weight loss and successful weight management.

In general, you are instructed to eat a diet that is full of fresh and water-based vegetables and fruit, fish, hard-boiled eggs, oatmeal and whole-grain crackers.

Some of her tips are:

  • Weigh yourself regularly.
  • Don't eat over the kitchen sink.
  • Pick one food that is calorie-dense that you eat at least two times a week and stop eating it.
  • Examine the portion size of what you regularly eat and reduce it. For instance, if you eat two pieces of toast in the morning, limit it to one.
  • Add up the calories you eat everyday using good resources and tools.

Thin Thighs in 30 Days offers a straightforward Work-Off and Walk-Off fitness plan. The plan features instructive workout photos of Stehling herself, charts that help you track your progress and set realistic goals, and a diary that will guide you along on each of the four weeks of the plan.
