Unable to Lose Weight around the Legs... Why?

One of the most important things when you exercise and eat well is the hope it will pay off and you lose weight.

Unfortunately in some people, they tend to not be able to lose any weight around their knees and legs. Sometimes even their thighs.

It just feels they have “fat” legs.

You may be genetically predisposed and have a condition known as lipoedema.

Here the skin can be cold and very sensitive to touch especially on the legs. No amount of exercise or diets can change it. It usually starts either during puberty or even after children and there is a strong family history. Other members in the family may have similar legs or even arms. Feet and arms are often spared.
