First, You need to know why you have cankles in order to get rid of them. 1 of these 3 things makes you have cankles.

1. You're Overweight

Hello! FYI - the condition is lipedema or spelled lipoedema in Europe. There's no "r" in the word. Anyway, studies show that up to 11% of women have lipedema, and cankles are one of the hallmark signs of it. I encourage anyone who can't seem to lose fat (anywhere on the body, not just ankles) to check into this condition. It's true there is no cure, but there are treatments shown to help slow the progression and possibly improve dependent on a number of factors.

Hi, hope you are having a good day. I am 37 years old, 170cm and 57kg. Always had nice legs untill 27 when suddenly i started having canckles, now i never wear shorts or skirts, i really wish i can find a solution, that would be a dream coming true. I exercise. My mom and sister have beautiful thin legs so i am not sure it's genetics. I hope it's not i can't afford a surgery. Any idea please? Thank you in advance ❤️

June 06, 2018

Adrian Bryant

since your weight is already low (in my opinion) do you think you may have a condition which is causing you to retain water?

Nat

Thank you for your reply, i had to take pregnancy pills for 10 years, i don't know if that matters, but it's been 7 years that I've stopped it , 3 years after i started having canckles.

Hi I’m 4”10 and weigh 110lbs. I carry all my weight in my lower body. Flat tummy, but big bootie and hips just fat all the way to my ankles! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Everytime I loose weight I get too skinny up top and still heavy on bottom. How can I loose fat just in my lower extremities? I want muscle and less fat! Thank you

May 17, 2018

you can't. you lose all over as you lose weight. the belly, hip and thigh areas are usually last to go

5'7" 210lbs, down from 250,topped at 285 pre-eclampsia pregnancy going on eight years ago. The pre-eclampsia wasn't caught until 5 days before my due date (I think since I normally had a bp on the lower side) but I had been having symptoms from the 4th month when my leg swelling started... I've tried to get them back to my pre pregnancy size (I was 20lbs heaver pee pregnancy) and haven't been able to.

Jessica

I am 5"0, 22 years old and weigh approximately 221 lbs. I have been over weight all my life. The most I have ever weighed was about 275 I have went to the gym a few times in the past and lost some a good amount of weight. Although I am not we're I would like to be. I have been struggling with my cankles all my life. Even going to the gym doesn't slim them down enough to were I would feel comfortable with them. I am very insecure about them. I hate wearing skirts, dresses, shorts, and capris It will literally make me cry to even look in the mirror.

June 03, 2017

at your current weight i believe right now the best way to lose your cankles is to lose weight all over and not with one special exercise

I am 25 5ft 6 and weigh 120lbs. I'm a size 6/8(uk) dress size. Tiny frame, flat stomach, got a bit of a bum and thighs but my calves/ankles don't match the top half of my body! Help! I work out and eat a relatively healthy diet - I think it's fat but if I diet and slim down I look even skinnier on top and lose a bit in my thighs but nothing budges on my calves.

March 08, 2017

so are you saying you dont have cankles but muscular calves?

Jinnie Song

Hi! I'm standing at 160cm and weigh 50kg but I have fat ankle. Is there any possible way to get rid of it? Does running help? None of my family members have fat ankles. All of theirs are skinny except for mine.
I don't usually go for excercise. Is there any exercise that would help with slimming down fat ankles?

Thank you!! With much love<3

Lucy

Hi I'm 22 years old, I'm 5'6 and I weight around 143 pounds, I used to be 121 pounds. I was really skinny and had skinny legs in 2014. All of a sudden I gained weight, this gain has happened over in 2015 and 2016. I gained weight everywhere my love handles were very noticeable and my legs obviously got bigger. I am now running pretty much every day and I have already lost most of my love handles. I look at my calves and ankles and I wonder if it is genetic or if it was because of my weight gain and it is a constant worry for me. My calves seem defined on the inner part but on the outer part there isn't any definition.
Please could someone help me figure out if my Cankles are genetic or it is because of the weight I gained.

January 30, 2017

Adrian Bryant

its probably more from the weight (and water weight) you gained

January 30, 2017

Lucy

thank you for your quick reply!
So with time and regular exercise it should go?

January 30, 2017

Adrian Bryant

yes but stay in touch if you need more help

Here's a sure-fire way to get rid of Cankles: Vote for Tr u_mp in November.

Kathy S.

What a pathetic human you must be to bring politics into a health conversation. But since you did, I feel it's my responsibility to bring a different view. T rump just wants to sow fear and scare people into v oting for him. He's a reckless buffoon with zero experience and a completely incoherent agenda. Trump is the LAST person anyone should vote for.

July 22, 2016

David

And what ,vote for the crooked democratic party , there is no good choice , I think Trump could effect more good changes with the shake up he would cause. Our greedy govt. is totally out of control . They dont stand up for anything ,sheep following wolves run by corporations and greed mongers who want war and upheaval.

You can't be serious - Trump is a sexist, racist, ignorant, self centered idiot! If he wins I hate to think of the repercussions. He doesn't care about the people - he is just after the glory!!

I am 5'9, weigh 130 pounds and I have horrible horrible cankles. I exercise 6 days a week, cardio and strength training and you would never even know. If you just saw a picture of my lower body..I promise you'd never ever match it up with my upper body. I just want to feel comfortable in my own skin and feel comfortable enough to wear shorts, skirts, and cute summer dresses. Any tips? I also wanted to add that some days my cankles aren't as big as other days..but I Def don't have pitted Edema. My significant other will tell me your having a bad leg day..or..hey your having a good leg day. So I know it's not all in my head.

June 13, 2016

that seems to me like you are retaining water. have you read this?

Go find an out-of-print book on Callenetics. Written by Callen Pinckney. You WILL balance out your body with her exercises. I did. You can, too. They're hard, and the 1st time I did the 1 hour session, it took me 8 hours to complete because I had to keep stopping to rest. In 6 months you'll thank me, and almost worship her.

Hello,
I am 19y.o.,170 lbs 6'25'' and I have cankles ever since I can remember.( recently I've seen a photo of me of age 6 where I have cankles; I was really skinny at that time). Now my upper body is kinda skinnier than average but my legs are kinda massive. In past I trained airalert training program which is excesive training of legs for 3 months straight. My legs've gotten really muscular but my calves remained the same.. I drink enough of water, eat relatively healthy, I tried lots of work outs, running etc but nothing seems to help.Thank you for any advice :)

*but my cankles remained the same

is this something that runs in your family?

Not really, I don't know about it.

May 08, 2016

Adrian Bryant

if your bodyfat percentage is pretty low Like under 10-to-15% then its probably genetic but if over 15% then diet and exercise should help

I'm 12 5'4 and 120lbs. I play heavy travel ball and do strength and agility twice a week. All of the sudden I have no ankles and kids are calling me fat but I wear a 0. What can I do.

April 20, 2016

Stacey

I am 13 and around 5' tall and weight around 115. I don't excercise that much but I am skinny on the top. I do have a grandma and my mom that do have bigger legs and cankles. I read that it is because you don't have enough growth hormone in you. So you might ask a doctor to take pills or injections.

June 21, 2016

Alice

I'm so glad I found this blog! I am 52, 5'5" and weigh 127 lbs. Granted, I have slacked up on my exercise during the past few years but wouldn't be considered overweight. I've always has nice slim legs and ankles but over the past 3-4 years, I've grown cankles! I hate them! Could this be a symptom of going through "change"? My body is changing in other more conventional ways but cankles? It is like I've grown big bones on the sides of my ankles. Help?
