how do i lose fat but not gain any muscle in the legs? especially my calves?

My legs do not have much fat on them especially my calves. My thighs do have some but its looks proportionate. I feel like my calves have been getting bigger. I go to the gym 3 times a week usually and do the stairmaster and a precor cross ramp. I am trying to lose weight and love food, so i have to exercise. I do not want my legs to get any bigger though, so what can i do?

    I have your problem.
    I have used the elliptical for a month now and i do 30 mins of forward running followed by some interval training:
    forward running for one minute and then 2 mins backward running.
    Repeat 5 times.
    half of that fat around my calves is gone now..

    you could do a sport such as boxing which mostly helps you gain muscle up top and in your belly area…it sheds fat all over though…this is a tricky one…do ab and upper body exercises at the gym…go do boxing..pull-ups..etc..

    Exercise regularly and continuesly and keep the timing. And more water take more proteins and fat by eating junk woods or you better take a regular jogging in the morning.

    Here’s some weight loss tips.

    Watch your fat intake. Each fat gram contains 9 calories so by reading the total calories on a food and knowing the quantity of fat, you can estimate the % of fat, which should in no way exceed 30% of the food.

    Go easy on salt, as too much salt is one of the causes of obesity. Make it a point to really cut down on salt. Try to bring down your salt intake to half of what it was last year.

    Change from table butter to cholesterol free butter. If you have a choice why not go for it, any way it is healthier for you and tastes just the same. Bear in mind that these small changes can go a long way towards weight reduction.

    Instead of frying things try baking them without fat. Baking is by far a healthier method of preparing food than frying. Baking requires lesser oil or fat.

    Use a non stick frying pan for your cooking so that you do not have to add oil. The golden rule is to try and avoid as much oil as possible and a non stick pan is the perfect solution to this problem.

    Boil your vegetables instead of cooking them, or even better, eat them fresh. However if you do not like eating your vegetables as it is, try steaming them without adding anything at all. This is probably the healthiest way to eat cabbages, cauliflowers and a host of other vegetables.
