Why?: It's normal for a young woman to have fat on her thighs despite what you might see in magazines. If you are overweight of course then exercise and diet to loose weight will help. But you can't "spot" reduce; that is you can't lose fat from just one area of your body. Check out the women in your family; where you carry weight might be a genetic issue. "fatless" thighs are not the norm for women.
