    What I mean is that no matter how much weight I cut or lose, I have large amounts of fat deposits in my thighs/butt/hip/calf area.

    I guess my genetic disposition is to have thick thighs/legs, and I have thick ankles, so I'm wondering if there are any supplements that would help with this in addition to the regular exercise and diet that I already practice.

    I don't have problems dropping weight or gaining mass, but legs seem way out of whack in proportion to the rest of my body in terms of fat storage.

    This makes shopping for pants very difficult, as I'm already short and having thighs that are so much thicker than my waist makes me look goofy.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    *edit* I should also mention I don't have man boobs. It just seems to be a a lower body thing for me.

    Then obviously you're not dropping to low enough bodyfats.

    Well..yes...but it just seems like my lower body is disproportionately fatty no matter what body fat percentage I may be at...hence my question.

    I'm not looking for a quick fix and I know spot training is a myth...more looking for suggestions on anything else that could help.
