Dear Momof1
There are no specific foods that will cause weightloss in only one area of the human body. If you need to lose weight in general, then you can use an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'DietnFood' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for at least 30 min a day. Also do targeted exercises like thigh rolls to help your thigh muscles to tighten up every day (ask Fitness Doc for a set of exercises that tighten the thigh muscles). This can be a long process, so give it time.
