Hi Mary, I’m sorry to hear that you are having these issues :( Try not to get too disheartened! If what you have been doing isn’t working, just sounds like you might need to change it up. First of all with your diet, I would try to reduce your carbs (to around 20-30%) and increase your fat (to around 20-30%). If you feel like your legs are mostly muscle I would avoid any exercises such as squats etc for now until you reduce some muscle. You can still do exercises for your legs but try to do more that focus on your glutes such as donkey kicks, single leg deadlifts, back extensions, leg raises, hip bridges etc. They are less intense but they still work to help tone up. Pilates is actually great to help give you ideas on exercises to tone up without bulking up your quads. I also recommend walking 5-6 times per day, preferably first thing in the morning. Try to start most of your days off with a walk. I hope that helps hun! All the best xx

Plasma and muscle glutamine levels are decreased post workout and it can take hours before they are restored (Rowbottom, 1996). A study examining the effect of free-form glutamine and glutamine peptide ingestion on muscle glycogen resynthesis found that plasma glutamine was decreased by 20% post workout with the ingestion of glucose only (control), showed no change with ingestion of whey protein or wheat protein hydrolysate plus glucose drinks, and a 200% increase with ingestion of free-form glutamine plus glucose drink (VanHall, 2000). Free-form glutamine supplementation was needed to elevate plasma glutamine levels post workout.
