Looking for a bit of advice from you nice folks...
I'll start by saying that I know you cannot spot reduce, however I also know that certain dietary practices (eg. grain-free) are very helpful for losing belly fat, so I'm wondering if there's a similar strategy I can apply for stubborn jiggly fat on my bum and thighs.
A bit of background info - I'm 27, 129 lb and I follow a low-carb paleo diet. I haven't completely kicked dairy but it's just a helping of Greek yoghurt or cheese 2 or 3 times a week. I keep the carbs under 50g per day, usually in the 30-40 range. Protein averages around 80g and I get the rest of my calories (averaging about 1400) from healthy fats. All this tends to be spread over just lunch and dinner. Oh, and if it needs said, I'm female :)
I do Crossfit 3 evenings per week and another form of strength/circuits once or twice a week. My job is horribly sedentary, though. I basically sit at a desk for 9 hours a day.
Anyway, my top half is pretty lean with some good muscle tone, but I just can't get rid of the thigh flab. If you looked at me from the waist down you wouldn't think I ever worked out because all the muscle is covered in fat. I'd like to try to reduce this excess padding a little, or at least be able to see the results of all that Crossfitting!
Is my dietary fat too high? Should I take up some kind of chronic cardio like running? Or do I just need to accept my fate as a bottom-heavy woman and buy some flattering jeans?
Any and all advice welcome :)
