Background: 23 yr old female, 135 lbs, crossfit about 4/5 times per week; I've been following a pretty strict (~85/90%) primal diet for about three months now; still eat some raw/grass-fed dairy, full fat yogurt, kefir.
Sleeps good - averaging 8-9 hrs per night and I wake without an alarm.
I've seen great results with the lifestyle so far - my workouts have greatly improved, I'm seeing massive gains in strength, have leaned out, and have a lot more energy. I seem to be toning up all over, except the mid/upper thigh area. No matter what I seem to do, I can't seem to lose the fat in that area of my body, and its literally the only part of my body that hasn't toned up and become defined since transitioning to this lifestyle. Any one have any idea as to why this is happening and what I can do to get rid of it/improve it? I do have a couple of cheats per week (it is summer, so I do have ice cream one or twice per week), but i don't know if thats enough to mess with the fat loss. Granted, summer is almost over so my weekly ice cream treat will be done with pretty soon. I think I remember hearing somewhere that females are prone to storing excess fat in this area of the body, but was just curious if anyone had any suggestions as to how to get rid of it or as to why this was happening. Thanks!
