I am a very active person, I started going to the gym in my freshman year in university in 2012, and I gym 6 days aweek. I use weights for squat,I go for 30 minutes running , eliptical and rarely do circuits (my stamina for circuits is very low). I recently started kickboxing which I am enjoying a lot.
However, and given that I am 5'2'' , I find it hard to lose weight around my thighs! I don't eat junk food at all, I gave up dairy recently in all of its means - I rarely drink lattes- and I eat vegetables daily. I spoke to my trainer who told me that because I am short, running will actually make my thighs even more bigger!
to be honest I don't consider myself fat (im 120lb), but I aspire to be much leaner. Perhaps , would eating bread (for breakfast and lunch in the form of sandwiches) be the reason for me not losing any weight in my legs ?
Any recommendations ?
EDIT: I stopped counting my calorie intake a while ago. However, I only burn around 500 calories in the gym, which I think is low given that I love incorporating carbs in my diet!
